Not all is lost with Freedom Day taking place over the weekend, stealing a weekday public holiday away from us laymen. The Utopia Music Festival taking place at Nekkies in Rawsonville is sure to bring some good vibes to Freedom Day celebrations regardless
Taking place from the 26th April 28th April, The Utopia Music Festival couldn’t have come at a better time with winter taking a small hiatus.
Baldy good-looking line-up as well. Bit late notice but if nothing much is happening this weekend it’s worth a dabble.
Snoop Dogg, Snoop Lion, Lion Dogg, whatever name this lanky oke decides to call himself doesn’t take away from the fact that this legendary hip-hop artist will be touching down in South Africa this coming May for two gig’s. the first in Johannesburg on the 19th May with the Cape Town gig set for the 21st May.
This Californian native won’t just be bringing his love of the ‘erb’ to our fair shores, although…I’m sure he’ll be trying the local blends. The dogg will surely be treating his audiences to some off his biggest hit’s, such as ‘Drop it like it’s hot’, ‘California Girls’ & ‘Gin & Juice’.
Tickets can be found at Computicket with prices ranging from R550 – R320.
Well there we have it. At last 5 Gum has revealed that British rock band, the Kooks are set to play in Joburg on the 19th April and Cape Town on the 20th April.
5 Gum is no stranger to setting the social media universe alive, #5GumExperience is a socially driven music event, with last few year’s featuring 2 Door Cinema Club and DJ legends, A-trak and Hudson Mohawke being a bang on success.
Personally I don’t really see much advertising of the brand till one of these events roll round, and then you can’t move online or mobile without seeing some hashtag, Facebook post or blogger (guilty) building up the hype. Added to that the supposed exclusivity of the event’s having ‘secret’ venue’s which can be found through social media clue’s, no actual ticket sales and a series of competitions add’s to be whole shebang.
So essentially these dudes are using the full pull of the digital world to bring us some kickass event’s and raise the profile of the brand in a big way.
Funny man Michael McIntyre is coming to South Africa. The English comedian is set to performing two show’s, the first in Cape Town on the 19th April at Grand West and then at the Dome in Johannesburg on the 20th April.
Arguably the biggest thing since slice bread, the Michael McIntyre is without doubt one of if not the biggest comedian in the United Kingdom selling a record 700,000 tickets in 2012 alone. Holy Shit!
This is so kak funny you’ll poo your pant’s and just carry on laughing. He looks like a fat little Chinese man, and is camp as hell but man can he tell a good joke.
For the show in Cape Town at Grand Westtickets range from R668 – R257 and can be bought on Computicket, with the obviously more costly ones being closer to the stage, with prices in Johannesburg expected to be much of the same.
Michael McIntyre is like the Red Hot Chili Peppers of comedy, if he’s coming to South Africa you cannot miss this.
He’s a few tester’s just to get the juices rolling.
The annual Robertson Valley Wacky Wine Festivalis in its tenth year. Taking place from the 6th – 9th June this festival of the grape is a firm favourite amongst social quaffers and snobs alike.
Being a ‘de-centralized’ festival it takes place at numerous participating wineries across the valley.
The vibe, well you pay R100 for your weekend passport allowing you to wonder in and out of the wine farms sampling the best they have to offer, getting slightly sozzled and taking some serious kak as the day going. Tasting portion are pretty generous as well as the prices should you decide to buy a few bottles and the free glass as part of the passport is pretty cool too.
Naturally driving while you absolutely gazebo’d is frowned upon so we mostly hire a van for the day which allows us to enjoy the day without worrying who’s going to be playing Dave for the night.
I’m there for the wine and nothing else. And Saturday night is always a fat jol at Arabella Wine Estate where Prime Circle and the Brothers Streep are set to give it horns not to mention the general evenings revelry.
My suggestion is don’t leave it too late to book accommodation as you’ll be left drying your eye’s.
I follow Helen Zille on Twitter and can attest to her pretty quick wit and chirps. But it’s pretty hilarious to see what kak people ask of her through the odd tweet here and there, you would like to think these are just people taking the piss?
Debatable…..a tumblr has been set up by someone whether it be the Premier herself of just a parody who knows.
