Announcement | The Internet to Perform at Cape Town International Jazz Festival

Once again, the annual Cape Town International Jazz Festival had gone to town on its lineup, surprising us with incredibly diverse and current lineup, most recently including LA-based, Grammy-nominated hip hop/soul outfit The Internet. They’re the last act to be announced for the 18th Jazz Festival, and we’re not disappointed at having Syd ‘tha kid’ Bennett, Matt Martians, Patrick Paige II, Christopher Smith and Steve Lacy in the city.

Defying easy categorisation of their crossover multi-genre sounds, The Internet was christened as a result of the two producers – Syd (Sydney) and Matt Martians (real name Matthew Martins) – meeting on the net, then officially forming the band in 2011. They have since released three studio albums and three extended plays, with Ego Death, nominated for a Grammy – Best Urban Contemporary Album.

Catch The Internet on the Manenberg Stage on Saturday 1st April 2017 at the Cape Town International Jazz Festival happening 31 March and 1 April 2017.
