Making waves in greater Gauteng and the North West Province, The Capitals – alongside their already dedicated Pretoria fan base – have had a very successful 2018, opening for renowned acts Francois van Coke and Jack Parow on several occasions. The band has also played alongside Gangs of Ballet, Matthew Mole and Desmond and the Tutus, but their focus still remains on the audience’s enjoyment, regardless of the location or size of the crowd.
Having graced the stages of some of South Africa’s most renowned rock venues like Arcade Empire and Aandklas Hatfield, the band made their Splashy Fen Festival debut this year, garnering new fans in KZN. Come December, they will extend their reach to the Free State, Eastern Cape and Western Cape with a national tour, promoting their soon-to-be-released debut EP, ‘Danger, Gevaar, Ingozi.’
Their energetic performances constantly improve as they push themselves harder, and their heartfelt, honest lyrics never fail to take audiences on a rollercoaster of emotions as they explore what it means to be human.
The Capitals want to meet people where they’re at and give them an unforgettable experience – whether they’re in a rut, on top of the world or just looking for a party.

To wrap up a year of highly successful shows in the Jacaranda city, the band will kick off their newly announced tour at the Snowflake Market in Potchefstroom in the North West on 30 November and travel across the coast to the Western Cape, ending off at Aandklas Stellenbosch on 24 December.
The ultimate party band are ready to spread their positive vibes across the land, celebrating this festive season with people from all walks of life.
Frontman Conrad Rudolph says, “We’ve been itching to take our music outside Gauteng after seeing how people respond to our songs, especially the holiday crowds. The time spent performing in our hometown has really enabled us to level up our performance. We can’t wait!”
