South Africa's 'Super Tour': Christian Tiger School, Bateleur, The Frown + More!

South African music's NSFW crew are hitting the road on the "Phoenix Rising Magic Bus Tour." Christian Tiger School, Bateleur, The Frown and others will play a cross country tour March 28-April 4.


Some of our favorite sounds from South Africa are piling onto one giant bus and touring the country under the banner "The Rising Phoenix Magic Bus Tour" (what?!). Christian Tiger School, Bateleur, Knotts, Desert Head, The Frown, and Rakkie/Johnny Neon DJ set will all be on the happy bus starting tonight (3/28) in Stellenbosch until the finale on 4/4 at The Assembly in Cape Town. The tour will hit up most of the country's important musical sites - from playing major slots at the Splashy Fen Festival, to throwing a mega party at Kitchener's with another OKA fave A Brother Moves On. We're looking forward to seeing the photos from this NSFW "super tour." See all dates and cities below.
