In the latest installment of the Seed Experiences event catalogue, Ben Howard has been announced as the headline act for two dates as part of a South African tour. Ben Howard has got immense international love and has a platinum selling and self-recorded debut album as credentials. Ben has toured relentlessly for the last few years, every single show has sold out, while more tours have been added and upgraded to bigger venues. Now, with the latest “I Forget Where We Were” album under his belt, Ben Howard is finally coming to perform to his many fans in South Africa for the first time!
If I remember correctly the Sowing the Seeds Music and Lifestyle Festival started in Cape Town back in 2008 by Seed Experiences as a teaser event to the hugely popular Rocking the Daisies Festival and quickly grew in stature over the years that followed. Since the phenomenal growth of Rocking the Daisies in the Western Cape, Seed Experiences saw a demand from people in Jozi (like me these days) who wanted a similar minded music and lifestyle festival. On Saturday 21 March 2015, the 3rd edition of Sowing the Seeds in Jozi, will be held at Emmarentia Dam over one full day and promises to be bigger than ever before while still maintaining its appealing boutique festival status.
Local acts confirmed so far include Desmond and the Tutus, as well as afro-folk singer and performer Bongeziwe Mabandla. For more information, local lineup announcements visit:
The Cape Town event at the beautiful Kirstenbosch Gardens will be a picnic-style setup on Wednesday the 18th of March 2015, headlined by Ben Howard and supported with one local act. For more information about Ben Howard Live in Cape Town visit: www.facebook.com/seedexperiences
