Distruction Boyz have silenced critics who have accused them of being a one-season wonder, scoring a slot on another prestigious international music festival lineup.

The group, who created the anthem for Summer 2017 with their smash hit Omunye, announced this week that they will be performing at the South West Four Weekender Festival, billed as "London's leading music festival".

They will share a stage with the likes of Martin Garrix, Tinie Tempah and The Prodigy.

The group will also perform at the massive Reading & Leeds Festival over the same weekend, alongside Post Malone, the 1975, Foo Fighters and Twenty One Pilots.

They will kick off the festival tours with a set at Parklife Music Festival in Manchester in June. The festival is headlined by Cardi B, Solange, Khalid and Migos.

The pair have been hard at work on new material but have not released music in a minute, leading to some on social media wondering if they were a one-hit wonder.

The group have largely ignored the hate, posting about the festivals while promising a massive next few months.

In a series of posts on Instagram, they claimed these latest bookings would help guarantee that summer 2019 is another one dominated by them and their music.

Speaking to TshisaLIVE after securing one of their first international festivals at Sonar last year, the group's Que said their focus was on securing international bags.

"We focused our attention on SA last year but we really want to go international this year. A residency is the best way to get exposure overseas and so that is what we are hoping to secure in the next few months."
