We’re happy to confirm that Sowing the Seeds Music & Lifestyle Festival and Seed Experiences will be making a triumphant return to to the Jozi landscape with two incredible international acts, Of Monsters And Men & Jungle as the festival headliners, for the event taking place at Emmarentia Dam in Johannesburg on Saturday 2nd April 2016.
The Sowing the Seeds Music and Lifestyle Festival started in Cape Town in 2008 by Seed Experiences, as a teaser event to the hugely popular Rocking the Daisies Music & Lifestyle Eco Festival and quickly grew in stature. Since the phenomenal growth of Rocking the Daisies in the Western Cape, Seed Experiences saw the demand from people in Jozi who wanted a similar, like-minded music and lifestyle festival in Mzansi (it’s tough up here ok?).
The 4th edition of Sowing the Seeds in Johannesburg will be held over one full day and promises to be bigger than ever before, while still maintaining its appealing boutique festival status.

Of Monsters And Men first had the world talking in 2011 with their inescapable and infectious quadruple-platinum smash “Little Talks.” An engaging mix of indie, folk, and alternative, the Icelandic quintet’s critically acclaimed full-length debut My Head Is An Animal [Republic Records] climbed to the top of the Billboard Top 200 chart and has sold over 2 million albums worldwide.
Since then the group have delivered revered performances at festivals such as Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Coachella, Newport Folk Festival, Osheaga, Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, Pukkelpop, and Splendour in the Grass as well as at countless sold out headline shows around the world.
There is no blueprint to Jungle’s irresistible, life-enhancing, report-to-the-dancefloor sound but there are many ingredients. It’s P-Funk and ‘Grand Theft Auto’, it’s Curtis Mayfield and ‘Tron’, it’s the Beach Boys and Joy Division and Marvin Gaye and Can, all cut up and refracted in a London neighbourhood where anything can happen.
And behind the rising buzz – the BBC Sound of 2014 nomination, the 4 millions plus plays of the ‘Platoon’ video, the US tour that sold out on the back of their SXSW appearance before Jungle even had an official record out in America – it’s a DIY story. Working from their home studio in Shepherd’s Bush, the core Jungle duo known only as J and T set out their store long before they came on any label’s radar with a brace of handmade mini-classics. A couple of singles – ‘The Heat’’s supple 4am soul snap, the ice-cold search-and-destroy beats of ‘Platoon’ – connected 2014 and 1974, London with Rio and New York, the feet with the unconscious mind.
