Let’s “Defy Theory” and get the Gents to the Warton Music Festival in England!

Awesome people of South Africa & the world – Defy Theory need you!

In order to get to the Warton Music Festival in England where they have been invited to play, they need to raise a bunch of money in a short space of time. We believe wholeheartedly that this can be achieved and we are urging you as believers in the dream to help us get them there!

With its roots firmly grounded in the local Midlands music scene, Warton Music Festival has been delivering great line ups since 2007. Founded by a group of music lovers, the festival has showcased some of the finest bands and solo artists over its ten year span- selling out its original venue each time.

The festival grew year upon year until finally in 2017 it was time to expand! Relocating to a new 15 acre spot at Bentley Farm, the festival has now evolved into a three day event with on-site camping, various stages filled with national and international bands, a fair, and a variety of entertainment and food stalls.

If you haven’t heard of Defy Theory yet, I urge you to go watch them live. I first got to see them at Alberton day in 2018 and knew instantly they were destined for great things, this opportunity for them to play abroad confirms the “theory”.  😉

In August 2018 they opened for Gangs of Ballet in what would be one of the band’s final shows. They followed this up by being announced as part of the Krank’d Up Fest 2018 line-up where, alongside major local bands, will also be sharing the line-up with international heavy weights Miss May I and Sikth.

Defy Theory are a hard working rock outfit and what’s more they are great performers, so crowds can always expect high energy sets with a great vibe.
