Adding to Synergy’s already world-class line-up are electronic heavyweights, Flux Pavilion and Dirtybird’s JPhlip. These 2 DJ’s will be playing on the Red Bull Synergy Live Main Stage, bringing their own unique and distinctive sounds to Synergy Live for the very first time.

 Flux Pavalion

Flux Pavilion

Known for his massive bass heavy hits “I Can’t Stop” and  “Bass Cannon“, English producer and DJ Joshua Steele AKA Flux Pavilion has risen to electronic stardom ever since with his output going from strength to strength. Originally known for topping the dubstep music genre, Flux Pavilion has now expanded out into a wider range of electronic music, in which he has also excelled, with the release of debut album ‘Tesla’ earlier this year.

Having collaborated with the likes of Childish Gambino, Steve Aoki & Dillion Francis as well as remixing tracks for The Prodigy, Skrillex & Jamiroquai, Flux Pavilion brings exciting elements to every project he is involved in. Having headlined 5 tours across the US and UK as well as performing on all the notables, Glastonbury, Reading, Coachella, EDC to name but a few it is no wonder he has been asked to remix the Star Wars theme song, surely one of the biggest highlights in his career.

Catch Flux Pavilion on the Red Bull Synergy Live Main Stage Saturday 29th November.


J Phlip

Jessica Phillippe, better known to the world of electronic music as J.Phlip, embodies that U.S West Coast Dirtybird flair that’s allowed Claude VonStroke and his team to rise to prominence. She’s a hard-working, dedicated lady who refuses to compromise and aims to rock the dancefloor without relying on the most obvious tracks. Production-wise she’s just as fearsome, lacing her tracks with a tough yet bouncy flavour. Her prowess in both disciplines combined with her infectious sense of fun and mind-boggling depth of knowledge make her one of the most revered DJs on the global circuit today.

Don’t get me wrong the line up isn’t bad. There just isn’t any “crowd puller” for me at the moment, but I’ll still be there though. Synergy never disappoints.

  14. I am frothing for Flux Pavilion! Cannot wait to jam it out on the dance floor!!!

  15. I’m mostly looking forward to seeing every single artist on that line up but most of all, J Phlip! MCBN do what you do best and please make the 11th month extra special. Synergy you ripper!

  16. My exams have been delayed by over two weeks due to protest action and I need something to keep me going. The hope of winning tickets to synergy will ensure I get the strength to study. Synergy is on the weekend my exams are scheduled to finish from the rumors spreading around and there will be no better way to celebrate the end of a heavy varsity year than by being at Synergy partying all weekend long in this beautiful city of Cape Town.

  17. I’m super excited to see J Phlip & Al Bairre! I would love to spend a whole weekend partying to great music and basking in the good vibes ✨
    That would make my life complete, MCBN ❤️

  18. No brainer: Flux Pavilion!! When Bass Cannon comes on – I am not liable for how hard I hit that floor.

  19. Flux Pavilion it is! Mycitibynight and SynergyLive making this Monday sweeeeeeeeeeeeet!

  20. As much as I would be happy to say either (I mean, it’s Flux?) – but I’m backing my girl and going with J phillips 🙂

    We need more girls to play for big stages. I mean, without us, who are men even 😉 (kidding boys)

    Excited to see some real woman talent up here. And I can only do that if I WIN! yes man 🙂

  21. My boyfriend and I are dying to break our Syngergy virginity cos we’ve always only heard good things! Would be the best kickstart to my holidays after this long ass year (especially after exams being postponed ?) have some serious celebrating to do ? And who better to do that to than Flux Pavilion ??? fingers and toes crossed!

  22. Foaming from the oral cavity for Flux Pavilion ? Going to be the first Synergy experience with my partner in crime, Megan Hamilton ? A pair of tickets would go to good use #MyCityByNight

  23. Definitely J. Phlip ?

    Love it when a woman breaks into a male dominated career with the style and integrity J. Phlip used ?

    Also who wouldn’t want to see Flux Pavilion live??

    Give me two tickets and I’ll propose to my man ?

  24. With such big names this year its really hard to choose, they really have stepped their game up this year! Unfortunately I’m going to have to go for the cliche and say I’m most excited for Flux Pavilion, because, FLUX PAVILION MAN!

  25. Hmmmm….noooooo thought needed on this one….FLUX PAVILION!!!!! Will be my first time at Synergy so pleease make it happen!!!! #SynergyFTW

  26. I have never been to Synergy EVER. So MYCITYBYNIGHT please give grant me this opportunity to experience this sick music festival! I am most excited for J Philip, Al Bairre, Gangs Of Ballet, Matthew Mole (MY FAVOURITE ARTIST!). Just to emphasise that I have NEVER been to Synergy, so please grant me this kind and generous favour MyCityByNight!

  27. MATTHEW MOLE! Nothing better than some South African goodness to make your festival 😀

  28. Of the announcements so far I’m most excited about Flux Pavilion and Al Bairre Al Bairre Al Bairre their happiness is infectious!!!

  29. I am really really excited that Al Baire is going to be at Synergy Live. I am a fan and since I’ve seen them live for the first time this year I just can’t get enough of them. 😀


  30. I’m really excited to see Matthew Mole. Coming from the same high school in fish hoek, it’s great to see how he’s established himself internationally and locally. Would be awesome to see him perform live again.

  31. I’m excited to see everyone! ?? Cannot wait to kick my holidays off with a synergy jol ???

  32. The Synergy line-ups have always been quality over the years, from the likes of The Prodigy to BomBay Bicycle Club, but after the announcement of Flux Pavilion & J.Phlip I think this year will definitely be one for the books.

    The idea of seeing both a dubstep legend as well as a Dirtybird artist at the same festival leaves me speechless. The psytrance-Sunday line-up looks just as enticing so far & I am eagerly awaiting any further artist announcements.

    All the best MCBN, Regards <3 x

  33. Really keen to see Al Bairre, they never fail to disappoint and I feel that this performance will be truly awesome

  34. Not a lot of bands announced yet, but Flux is doing really well, and would be kiff to see the ouens again… Hoping theylll do it again and rock our weekend selves away.

  35. Avid festival goer… need to tick Synergy off the list… would be so stoked if I got to go and see Flux Pavilion.

  36. I have never missed a Synergy, but because of all the awesome acts that have been coming to SA this year it has left me broke as fuck. I cannot miss this year!!!! I cannot miss FLUX PAVILLION!!!! I cannot miss being strapped to a chair a force fed beer!!!! (Please see link) I cannot let my monkey miss this year! (Please see link) Please MCBN, get me to Synergy this year!!!!! Bean



    1. Also i see that the winners are announced on the 21st November… which just happens to be my birthday! Would be an awesome birthday gift MCBN… Just saying 🙂

  37. I am most excited about Al Baire and it would be amazing to share that feeling with friends. It would be something out of this world!!! -8

  38. I also am aggressively unfancy from the Mother City, South Africa. I have nice hair and like ugly things as well.

  39. I am most excited to see Al Bairre with my sister because she is a huge fan and they make her happy and I love seeing her happy

  40. I would love to be unique to try and help my chances of winning but I’ve got to be honest I’m most excited to see Flux Pavillion!!!

  41. Partying to Flux Pavilion and Al Bairre after UCT exams would be the best reward ever !!!! The ERA stage sounds awesome!!

  42. This will be my first year going to synergy and I am beyond excited to see FLUX PAVILLION live !!! ?? hoping to win tickets, fingers crossed.

  43. J Phlip hands down! Absolutely loved her performance at CTEMF and what a treat it will be to see her again.


  44. IM SO FUCKING EXCITED TO SEE FLUX PAVILLION AND CRYSTAL CASTLES. You guys have outdone yourselves this year, I cant miss it, need a ticket!

  45. Today I”m afraid I might have shat myself the minute I saw the tweet stating that Crystal Castles have finally decided to grace our country with their presence! I don’t think it gets better than that. If you are familiar with their live show you would know that their schizophrenic darkwave electronic synth is known to melt faces as of late. They’ve stopped performing for a while so I’m beyond curious to see what their new live show will entail. It’s sad the face of Crystal Castles is no more with the band but the fact that there’s another mysterious vocalist waiting to be seen makes the excitement even more unbearable since their latest song on soundcloud blew my potatoes into mash! I absolutely can’t wait to hear the chaotic yet beautiful “alice practice” live!

  46. I was going to give Synergy a pass this year, and instead save the money for Ultra 2016…..but Flux Pavillion is performing?? This time last year I was holding fingers for him to be playing! Murphy’s Law…..please please please give me a chance to win those tickets! Worth a shot, can’t win anything without entering 😉

  47. Aaah man. Seeing Crystal Castles even without Alice will be huge. Not even talking about Fluxpavillion massive sounds from the U.K. Waited eternity to see CC since seeing them in a Swaak YouTube vid from the John peel tent at Glastonbury in 2010

  48. Flux Pavilion, hopefully he’ll allow me to be able to finally STOP : ( because right now i still can’t stop and i just wanna Blow The Roof ? so very very bleak that jhb doesn’t have a show anymore.

  49. I am so excited for Crystal Castles! Honestly can’t wait anymore! 😀

  50. Definitely excited to see Crystal Castles. Hoping for my first Synergy experience. Tried my best to make it last year but unfortunately had no money for a ticket. Was also a bit sad the carnival rides were taken away last year. But nevertheless looking forward to my first Synergy experience this year. Still haven’t won a mycitybynight comp. Please please. Liked and shared the post too!!

  51. Aaaaaahhhhh Crystal Castles cannot wait to see them live. LOVE LOVE LOVE Crystal Castles and My City by Night!!!! Would be the perfect after exams celebration 😀

  52. C R Y S T A L – C A S T L E S!

    Been listening and loving them for years. The memories I would create jam’in to them with all my homies is priceless.
    Sponsor my broke ass. ?

  53. My friends and I have been embarrassingly dancing to Flux Pavilion since we were young spuds, nothing could bring us all together better than a little ( massive understatement) razzle at Synergy to music from the past. Writing exams and constantly being distracted with the thoughts of synergy at the end, please make it a possibility for me and my friend @carinbrink

  54. Never been would love to becomea regular, hope its not to late to experience this amazing event before i leave the country next year :)!

  55. I have never been to Synergy and would love to experience it with my hubby – as honest as that 🙂

  56. I have never been to Synergy and would love to experience it with my hubby – as honest as that 🙂 Plus it is my birthday month 🙂

  57. Also shared this post after my comment 🙂 pretty please help me to enjoy the experience for the first time as well 🙂

  58. After my first synergy last year its not even an option to miss this and Flux Pavilion I mean common tease me 😉

  59. Synergy over any festival! Grimehouse is going to be nuts! Can’t wait to hear the others too! I really want and need these tickets please. I chose this over plett because synergy is awesome!! Give me a sick end of matric jol!!

  60. Can I amend my previous comment? OBVIOUSLY it’s Crystal Castles now!! 🙂 #MCBN #SynergyLive

  61. CRYSTAL FUCKING CASTLES…full stop :'( this is the dream right here! I’m pretty bleak about Alice Glass but I’m super keen to see that homie, Ethan Kath, touring with the new elusive vocalist known only as “Edith” 😀 haha.

    But if I had to choose, definitely Flux Pavillion – ‘ Let the bass cannon kick it’ and ‘ I can’t stop’ on proper festival speakers? Gahh it literally gives me shivers to imagine how good that is going to sound. BRING ON THE BASS.
    Let me release my inner 16 year old! 😛

  63. im a massive fan of local boys well thats the main reason i go each year…Due to personal reaon cant make the cash deadliine ….so im going to name a few…. SHORTSTRAW HAEZER AL BAIRRE BITTEREINDER….. this i a event that makes u wish that there was 2 of you to see it all….

  64. FLUX PAVILION for sure , but that local lineup is insane though : Shortstraw al bairre and the plastics . So its pretty much a tie for me between all of them.

  65. Everybody. But Jeremy loops, Short Straw and Grimehouse are gunna rock my socks off. Super keen.!!!!

  66. Im super keen to check out Flux Pavilion and Crystal Castles. I went to Synergy 2014, but as soon as I got there, someone drove over my foot. I had to immediately go back home and had my foot scanned. I broke the cuboid bone and a few phalanges in my foot. My dream to attend a Synergy ended so quickly. Please please please, winning free tickets will make me forget about my terrible experience last year.

  67. I am most looking forward to three acts. Two being prospering South African players, Matthew Mole and Jeremy Loops as well internationally renown Flux Pavilion.

  68. Seeing Crystal Castles live has literally been a dream for years. I knew they broke up and had no idea I’d ever get the opportunity to see them. Yoh, I dono how Synergy did it but I’m literally doing anything and everything I can to be there. Tickets would be epic! It’s the most magical festival.

  69. I have never been to Synergy Live. And this year has got to be the year. FLUX PAVILLION. HELLLOO?? ??? being a student is sucky – cash is a no go. I would literally do anything to win a ticket. This year, luck has not been on my side – hopefully it will change before the 21st ? Heeey my nickname even rhymes with Synergy – JENERGY IS READY FOR SYNERGY ??

  70. I have never been to Synergy Live. And this year has got to be the year. FLUX PAVILLION. HELLLOO?? ??? being a student is sucky – cash is a no go. I would literally do anything to win a ticket. This year, luck has not been on my side – hopefully it will change before the 21st ? Heeey my nickname even rhymes with Synergy – JENERGY IS READY FOR SYNERGY YO ??

  71. My boyfriends exams got cancelled after a million postponements and I’d love to be able to win these babies and jol our faces off and forget about all the nonsense this year brought with it, yet again with the amazing Flux Pavilion ??✨ please get us there!

  72. Mostly looking forward to seeing is Al Bairre & Haezer. They super awesome and it would mean the world to me if i could see them live. This will be my first synergy festival and it would be epic if i win these tickets.

  73. Matthew Mole has got to one of the best live performers I have seen to date. Add to that Flux Pavillion who has been making my life easier since 2012, these tickets would be more than well used for myself and my best mate.

  74. In the words of the infamous Zlatan Ibrahimovic: “Jared deserves these tickets more than anyone for his jolling heart and moving feet.” Never have I seen someone so keen to see Flux Pavillion and Matthew Mole before. Would be a dream come true.

  75. I am an absolutely diehard Crystal Castles fan and I am absolutely ecstatic that they’re coming to Synergy! Only problem is that student life is hard sometimes and money doesn’t roll in quite as quickly as would be ideal. SO, please please consider me for this competition. I would love love love to see them live and it would be the most amazing end to a pretty rough year! 😀

    1. Hi Jason, winners will be mailed during the course of today by the PR company in question. Please sit tight?
