Amelie Lens had a stellar performance last night, at Constitution Hill, in Braamfontein, Johannesburg. The stage and production was excellent, and the sound was good. Excellent visuals on stage made the performance great to watch and the energy she brought was magical.
I felt that the warm up from the supporting DJ’s was a bit slow in comparison, she took the energy right up and the crowd responded. The venue was packed, but not uncomfortable. Bar service was great and efficient. I got to see a lot of people I hadn’t seen for a while, it’s great to be back after this 2 year hiatus.
The crowd was having lots of fun during her set and I danced more than I have in ages. She started with some older tunes, feeling out the crowd and built her set extremely well, bringing more and more energy into play. It was great to see so many smiles.
It was great to finally see her perform live. I’ve been playing and sharing her sets for a long time, and am pleased to say that she is the real deal. She played one of the best Techno sets I have ever heard. The venue was great, with plenty of safe parking in their underground basement.
Ivan, from Killer Robot, played after Amelie and played a great set. It is always tough to come on after a big headliner and keep up with their performance. Well done to the whole crew for an excellent production and styling setup. Well done to the crowd for being up for the great Techno and well done to Amelie for bringing such a fabulous performance. I’m a big fan.
