To commemorate, the Big Bang and reemergence of the 1990’s punk rock scene, Sheep Down and Half Price are going to be touring South Africa on the “Big Bang” Tour from the 16th July-24th July.
Started in 2005, Sheep Down has toured South Africa extensively and is currently working on their second full length album entitled “Ska-benga” with a host of major festivals under the belt including Splashy fen, Woodstock and the Uprisings festival they promise to bring an electrifying performance to the stage.
They have also shared the stage with international acts such as Red Five Point Star (Slovenia), Evicted (Zimbabwe) and international award winners, the Ataris (USA).
Started in 2001 and hailing from the mother city, Half Price has become synonymous within the local scene as one of the hardest touring acts in the country with no less than 17 National tours under their belt. In 2006 they extended their tour route to Europe and played at the Popkomm festival in Berlin. Their latest release entitled “the Monotony of monogamy” has had outstanding reviews.
