Popular American electronic dance music trio Major Lazer is set to light up Kampala this coming October in a concert organised by Nile Breweries under the theme, ‘Refresh Your Beat with Major Lazer Sound System‘.
The concert was officially confirmed this week by Club beer’s brand manager Robert Nsibirwa during the silent disco event at Nile Breweries Service Center in Luzira and is scheduled for October 8th, 2018.
The famous trio comprises of record producer Diplo, and DJs Jillionaire and Walshy Fire who are well known for their dead dropping hits like ‘Lean On’ featuring DJ Snake, ‘Light it Up’ featuring Nyla & Fuse, ‘Let Me Live’ with Rudimental feat Anne-Marie & Mr. Eazi.
Major Lazer has so far released three full-length albums; Guns Don’t Kill People… Lazers Do in 2009, Free the Universe in 2013, Peace is the Mission in 2015 and recently Music is the Weapon, 2018.
Their song Lean On won Top Dance/Electronic Song at the Billboard Music Awards in 2016 including ‘Cold Water’ which won Single of the Year at MTV Video Music Awards in 2017.
The group is multi-talented as it ventures in numerous genres like mixing reggae with dancehall, reggaeton, soca, house and moombahton. They even have their own animated series which premiered on April 16, 2015 on FXX in which Diplo serves as co-creator and executive producer of the show.
Last year, Diplo left the crowd amazed at a Club Pilsener event that took place at the Golf Course Hotel in Kampala.
The concert will be held at Sheraton Gardens Kampala on 8 October and will feature A Pass, Fik Fameica, Beenie Gunter, and DJ’s RPM, BK and Silverback. The event is sponsored by Club Pilsener, Talent Africa, MTN, NBS, Mad Decent, Radio City, Prowl Africa Management and Sheraton Kampala.
