Popular Rep-rave band Die Antwoord will give a concert on Saturday, June 11th in Stara Ciglana (old Brickworks Factory) in Belgrade within the Art Festival DEV9T as a warm up concert to this year’s Exit festival.
The famous trio from the ghettos of South Africa rocked the music scene with its provocative appearance and music, accompanied by viral videos and frentic performances. Die Antwoord are finally coming to Belgrade and a the peak of their popularity, after they defeated the world’s top tier in 2014 with the album “Dark Mag” from the top of the world charts. Front-tandem Ninja and Yo-Landi have recently made a great success with roles in the movie “Chappie” directed by the famous Neil Blomkamp, where they play the street gangsters who accidentally become the “parents” of the robot-hero with advanced artificial intelligence.
The controversial band from Cape Town, established in 2008, brings a mixture of street hip-hop, rap, rock and rave from the marginalized walks of life in a modern society. Their uncompromising and completely authentic performances are a fusion of audio-visual arts followed by exceptional euphoria and almost dystopian motifs of modern society. Die Antwoord blast provocative, witty, sometimes morbid lyrics, with compelling motifs and powerful unified messaging ravers, rockers, rappers and generally members of numerous subcultures around the world. It is not uncommon to see them in the company of Johnny Depp, Marilyn Manson and Skrillex, with which they also performed live:
