IV4 is a new 4-piece alternative rock band from Pretoria and the Converse Get Out Of The Garage 2015 winners. Since March 2015, these four young talented guys have been putting together a new take on alternative music – inspired by artists such as Coldplay, the 1975 & John Mayer – exploring various genres and laced with their catchy melodies and exciting guitar lines. After an electrifying live performance to win the Get Out Of The Garage competition, the 2015 winners travelled to the Converse Rubber Tracks studio in Williamsburg, New York where they worked with renowned producer Jason Finkel on their song “Let it Out”. They have since worked extensively alongside Grammy award-winning producer Darryl Torr at Openroom Productions in Johannesburg, on their debut self-titled EP – IV4. No strangers to the stage, the band has already shared the stage with household names like Gangs of Ballet, Desmond & The Tutus, Crash Car Burn, Rubber Duc, PH Fat to name a few. Inspired and energised, IV4 is set out to turn more than just a few heads.

Sutherland is an Indie folk band based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Misty, Mika and Chris decided to start Sutherland after a fun jam down at the local park. They came up with some pretty cool ideas and then decided to make something out of it. Sutherland was officially started in 2013 and is taking over the airwaves with hit after hit being play listed on local radio. Their latest single “Remember” has received major airplay.

The sound that is Bye Beneco has stemmed from a multitude of musical styles. Its organic composition, layered sounds and beautiful, evocative vocals are at the essence of their music. Their sound can be described as eclectic dream-pop with a dark underlying spirit, on which the band prides itself. The band consists of 3 members, Lenny-Dee Doucha, Bergen Nielson and Matthew Watson. It’s not just going to make your head bop, Bye Beneco produces an unique energy that is palpable through their music, awakening your mind’s eye.
