The Prodigy to headline Synergy Live 2012.
So it is finally officially official, The Prodigy will be headlining Synergy this year. The rumour mill has been buzzing with the news for awhile and it is really exciting to have the news confirmed.
The winners of two Brit Awards, three MTV Video Music Awards, five MTV Europe Music Awards to name but a few set world stages alight with their big beat, electric rock and punk infused sound. From the early 1990’s The Prodigy stormed the world’s festivals, headlining stages usually reserved for the rock establishment and walked like Gods where other press-friendly artists feared to tread and dance artists were previously uninvited. Hits like ‘Firestarter’, ‘Breathe’ and ‘Smack My Bitch Up’ dominated the airwaves and firmly cemented that The Prodigy was a force to be reckoned with. Named ‘The Greatest Dance Act of All Time’ by Miximag 2012, The Prodigy returned to their ‘old school but cutting edge roots’ on their 2009 album Invaders Must Die, the album charted at number one in the UK and Australia blowing away all their previous albums. Hits like Omen, Warriors Dance and Take Me to the Hospital enjoyed rotation on 5FM spawning a whole new generation of The Prodigy fans.
With the much awaited sixth album ‘How To Steal A Jet Fighter’ anticipated for release in 2013, The Prodigy has delivered time and time again, with SA fans eagerly awaiting the band’s captivating return performance on home soil. The band will be performing at Theewaterskloof Dam – Villiersdorp, Cape Town on Friday 30th November and Riversands Farm, Fourways Johannesburg on Saturday 1st December 2012.
Local support features some of the best talent in South Africa bringing together all genres in one festival across four stages with sounds from The Narrow, Desmond & The Tutus, Beast, Prime Circle, Jack Parow, The Rudimentals, Fuzigish, The Plastics to P.H.Fat, Haezer, Audiophile021, Kennedy, Mix n Blend, Chris Jack, George Daniel and Christian Tiger School and much more.
I thought I was ridiculously excited fro Synergy before but now things have gotten even better!
