I absolutely love a good festival! LOVE! Look:

See?! I’m in my element at festivals, which is why I’m so very excited that the year is not yet over Festival-wise.
I know right…as if the prospect of Christmas and all its goodness isn’t enough to look forward to, you still have TWO whole festivals to get involved in too!
Over the weekend of 26-28 November we’ll be getting all up in the bizznet of Synergy Live.
I was overjoyed to see that the line-up is actually pretty damn incredible and has enough substance to keep me firmly squished between thousands of strangers right IN the middle of all the crowdy-goodness.
Headliners: Feeder along with Dirty Skirts, Foto na Dans, my local favourites Taxi Violence, Van Coke Kartel and Jax Panik…and that’s just the FRIDAY? Somebody get me a drink.
Ok, I’m going to be honest here… I’m not exactly a huge fan of “electro dome” set-ups. Maybe I don’t take nearly enough drugs…or maybe I’m just a die-hard rock girl, but I do just prefer a real live band with drums and guitars and live humans. But, @bangersandnash has promised some epic face melting at Synergy’s electro dome, so I may have to venture inside.
I’ll have just enough time to recover from Synergy before my life gets taken over by Sonic Summer.
Durbanites everywhere (especially Durban) can rejoice in the knowledge that they are finally getting their very own festival on their very own shores when Locnville, Goldfish, Jax Panik and, possibly THE biggest news-makers of the year, Die Antwoord grace them with their presence on the 11th of December.
They’ll all be on stage again in Joburg on the 15th, and Capetonians get their fair share on the 18th.
Now I’ve seen Die Antwoord on stage twice (once at a secret show in Greenside, and once at an amazing party hosted by MK&Puma at The Woods) and regardless of what your views on them/their music/their zeffness is, they are one act who do really get it right on stage. You can’t help getting caught up in all the energy and all the zeffness around you. You need to experience it.
Speaking of which… Good news: MK has given me TWO double tickets for Sonic Summer to give TO YOU! Yay! Better news: The tickets are for which ever city the winners live in! Double yay!
To win, all you have to do is:

Easy yes? And considering that tickets cost R180 a pop, it the least you can do, really.
Thank me later.
