Philipp from Milky Chance is extremely excited for their return to South Africa and the tour has a special reveal as well
“It’s been way too long since we were over in SA. Back then it was so special for so many reasons and we really felt welcomed by the people. We have plenty of new music since our last visit that we want to share and we grew into the live band we always wanted to be. We can’t wait to play for the people in SA.’’
More info about Milky Chance
Milky Chance originated in Kassel, Germany, where childhood friends Clemens Rehbein and Philipp Dausch formed the indie-pop band and rose to fame with their breakout folk/electronic hit “Stolen Dance” which reached #1 on the charts, was certified platinum in multiple countries and became one of the most Shazamed songs of all time.
Over four album releases, they’ve reached a massive global audience (7 Billion career streams, 13 million Spotify monthly listeners) and by going fully independent in 2021 have evolved to thrive in an increasingly precarious music industry, building an enviable touring resume (including festivals like Coachella, Reading & Leeds, and Lollapalooza) and an audience stretching from the US, Canada and Mexico to the EU, Australia, and beyond.
Their latest album, released in June 2023 on their own Muggelig Records, has already delivered over 500 million streams from 3 global hits – “Colorado,” “Synchronize” + “Living In A Haze” – and allowed the band to embark on their biggest-ever North American tour weaving their way across 65 cities including iconic venues like Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheater.
Great news is that Neon Dreams and Sean Koch both join as support acts for the Cape Town (15 February) and Johannesburg (17 February) shows, and Neon Dreams will also be joining Milky Chance in Durban (18 February) as support act.
Canadian duo Neon Dreams are no strangers to the South African music scene
Their 2019 single “Life Without Fantasies” reached the top of the South African viral charts amassing millions of streams in 2021 during the lockdown. The band connected with tens of thousands of fans online which led to their first sold out headline tour.
They have continued to cement themselves in the industry here, having toured the country a number of times over the past few years and return in February 2024 to share the stage with Milky Chance in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban.
Sean Koch is one of SA’s most-loved indie-folk artists
Koch brings a mixed bag of African and western, influence alongside messages of home, a connection to nature, the ocean and the people around him; to his storytelling, feel-good music.
While rooted in his flowing-folk style, his music is diverse. From dance infused songs like ‘Lift You Up’ the standout single from his collection (including the Double MZK & G DOM remix) to the dreamier songs like ‘Feel the Energy’ that carry deeper messages of connection to the natural world and the people that surround us. There is something for everyone in Sean’s catalogue.
