Visit the brand new gamescom space for a taste of Europe's biggest games exhibition and while lounging in this super cool VIP area, take in this one off special by South Africa's brightest exports.

Born in New York and raised in Cape Town, Locnville (identical twin brothers Andrew and Brian Chaplin) have an eclectic music palette and a passion for a multitude of music styles belying their years.

Recording their first songs in their bedroom at the tender age of 7, they have to date written and produced a multitude of tracks fusing rock, rap, electro and hip hop and winning a plethora of music awards in their home of South Africa.

This year the boys finally signed to a major label and are destined for big things... They'll be performing in Cologne at the legendary PlayStation Party. If you can't make it there - we'll be streaming the gig in the gamescom space in PlayStation Home.

And even more great news - everyone attending the gig, which will run all day Monday, 23 and Tuesday, 24, will receive a free and exclusive tour t-shirt. Don't miss it!
