In the run-up to Mieliepop Festival we caught up with one of the great bands on the lineup, Grassy Spark. Plus, find out how you could win tickets to Mieliepop below!
You guys have such a unique sound. How do you describe yourselves?
An accumulation of our personalities to produce an eclectic sound that fuses a variety of genres and instruments. We aim to produce both physical and mental happiness for all of the family who experience Grassy.
You’ve had a number of highlights over the years, I especially remember you winning the Vodacom In The City competition. What have been some of your favourite moments?
Some notable ones:
– Touring SA with UB40
– Opening for Foster the People
Too many to name actually – it’s been a mega three years for us. Just straight hard graft!
What’s on the cards for 2017?
Bigger shows, tours and newer singles – most of this is a secret so we encourage everyone to just tune into our vibrations to find out ;)
What can fans expect from your set at Mieliepop this year?
Only the best that we can give – high energy musicality that will fill everyone with jol and smiles. Northern crowds are always the craziest and we look forward to tapping into that as per usual!
