Six popular indie bands were identified and listeners had to vote for their favourites via the 5FM app. The four bands shortlisted were The Shabs, Opposite the Other, Early Hours and Sean Koch Trio.

On Fresh@5, The Lumineers’ Jeremiah Fraites announced their choice as Opposite the Other. The Cape Town-based band will be their opening act for both Johannesburg and Cape Town. The Lumineers have also added another Cape Town band, Early Hours to the Cape Town leg, saying they would open the day.

Tickets for the concerts, brought to you by Big Concerts, are available from Computicket. Johannesburg fans can catch the band at The Ticketpro Dome and Cape Town at Green Point Park.
