Muse to Play Coke Fest March 2008

Top international bands Kaiser Chiefs, Muse, Korn, Good Charlotte and former Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman Chris Cornell head the lineup of next year’s My Coke Fest.

The event kicks off at the New Market Racecourse in Johannesburg on Friday, 21 March 2008 and proceeds to the Kenilworth Racecourse in Cape Town on Monday, 24 March 2008.

Each 12-hour festival is set to feature 10 bands, with the first local act on the bill confirmed as Prime Circle…

…Muse, meanwhile, are known for their extreme live performances having been named ‘Best Live Act’ at the Brit Awards for the last two years. The British three-piece — Matthew Bellamy, Chris Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard — produce a unique blend of alternative rock, classical music, electronica, heavy metal, Spanish guitars, and progressive rock. The band played the headline spot at Glastonbury, the legendary annual UK festival, and its headline concerts at Wembley Stadium earlier this year became two of the biggest-hyped concerts of 2007, with the first show selling out in 45 minutes, six months before the gig. Muse’s latest album, ‘Black Holes and Revelations’, released last year, became its second UK album chart number one.
