Next up was the eagerly anticipated Milky Chance, visiting South Africa all the way from Germany on their tour. Their set was relaxed and casual, yet still gave people an extra spring in their step. Milky Chance was evidently a crowd favourite as everyone sang along and appreciated their music. Their performance ended with the crowd demanding an encore.
Half an hour later, it was time to welcome the much-anticipated final act, UK band The Kooks. The crowd was enthralled with the band from the opening song. The Kooks brought energy to the day and their enthusiasm thrilled the audience. As the sun began to set during their performance, it was time to put the 2015 instalment of Vodacom in the City to bed. The Kooks’ set ended at around 18:00, which meant that it was finally time for everyone to pack up and head home. The event was a success and thoroughly enjoyed by everyone who attended. Of course, there is no better way to enjoy a festival than to be able to leave peacefully. As always, the event set high standards for itself that will undoubtedly be met next year.
