BΔSTILLE made a triumphant return to South Africa as they kicked off the African leg of their 2017 Wild Wild World Tour in Cape Town. The British Indie Rockers have been touring relentlessly since the launch of their second studio album 'Wild World' just over a year ago. Local favourites Opposite The Other and Matthew Mole warmed-and-wowed the crowd at the GrandWest Arena before BΔSTILLE ultimately took to the stage in spectacular fashion. Fans were treated to an eclectic performance from Dan Smith and the lads, jam-packed with all the hits from their studio albums (and even mix-tape sessions).

Seeing BΔSTILLE live makes it easy to grasp why they have fast flown to the rank of top UK band! David Devo Oosthuizen had a chat to the lads just before the show - take a listen what BΔSTILLE had to say.
