Vodacom In The City 2015
With previous winners like Al Bairre and P.H.fat no wonder entries for Vodacom Open The City almost doubled this year, to an incredible pool of over 140 local bands.
All vying for the opportunity to play on the same stage as international titans of music, The Kooks, Milky Chance and The Cat Empire. After heated deliberation, the Vodacom Open the City’s five finalists have been chosen and they are: December Streets, Timo ODV, Nomadic Orchestra, Grassy Spark and Early Hours!
This year’s hotly debated judging session included Catherine Grenfell (5FM), Sophie Abendanon (Seed Experiences), Charlotte Kanter (Morse Code), Natasha Goosen (One-Eyed Jack) and Hein Ferreira (Vodacom).
Public voting has opened and there are two ways to vote for the band you want to Open The City on 4 October.
The standard of entries this year was nothing short of phenomenal and the judges had a tough time choosing the five finalists but now it’s up to you, the fans, to choose the winner. In 2014 fans got to see all the finalists at an exclusive Open the City live show. This year not only will they be able to watch the five finalists live at a gig on the 20th of September but we want the public to get to know the #VOTC2015 finalists, so Vodacom is creating videos of each act covering one of our #VITC2015 acts.
