Seether will headline the second annual Parklife Festival which takes place at the end of next month in Durban, Cape Town and Joburg.
The band are celebrating their 10th anniversary with a worldwide acoustic tour called An Intimate Evening with Seether.
In South Africa, Parklife was fortunate enough to link the tour with its festival.
Parklife is unique in that it is the only festival which takes place within the city.
In Joburg, it is taking place at Marks Park and is the biggest event with two big stages.
Bands playing include Jeremy Loops, The Dirty Skirts, ISO, Shortstraw, Beatenberg and the Graeme Watkins Project.
That event takes place on November 24.
The first Parklife takes place in Cape Town at Kirstenbosch Gardens on Friday, November 22, with Taxi Violence performing unplugged.
The following day, Chris Saunders Park in uMhlanga plays host, with Jeremy Loops and Farryl Purkiss. Seether will headline all three events.
Damon Forbes, director of Breakout, the company behind Parklife, explained: “We wanted to create an inner-city environment. In Johannesburg we have two stages of equal size so that there is no delay in bands changing over. There will always be a main act on stage so that the flow is continuous. We also have an intimate stage where 1 200 people will be able to watch great performers like Farryl Purkiss, Michael Lowman and Shaun Jacobs.
“We will also have gourmet food stalls as we have gone to specialist restaurants and asked them to create stalls. Essentially, we will not be having any chip-and-dip stands. We want to provide people with choice and quality.
“Logistically and sound-wise we are using Gearhouse, which means the best sound is available. It is pointless putting on great bands and not putting in the effort sonically and logistically. That is also down to parking and security for the cars.
“We have taken a large amount of effort to make sure all the little details come together to make an amazing day out.”
Forbes said they were expecting 10 000 people in Joburg and 5 000 in Cape Town, and that the number of people attending the Durban gig would depend on the weather.
“Our slogan is ‘Go Summer’ because essentially we want people to go out and support the arts in the city,” he said.
