Yes, it’s been a long while since I’ve tattled with you all. So sorry.
But I’m here now, so, let’s get to it.
If you have nothing to do with this weekend, it can’t be because you’re broke (pay day was a week ago). Whatever your reasons for planning on staying at home this weekend, I can give you more reasons not to. Here’s what’s up in the next few days:
First of all, there’s Jozifest. I mean, sure, the name’s not as cool as Download Festival or Ozzfest, but it’s distinctly local and so Joburg. It’s a music festival that will have artists such as 340ml, Lark, Fokofpolisiekar and Tidal Waves (among so many others!). Die Antwoord was meant to perform but they had to pull out cos they got an invite to be on a BIG late-night show in the States…. Anyway, Jozifest takes place on 3, 4 and 5 February. Click here for more information.
If festivals aren’t your thing, you might be interested in a fashion show that takes place at a two-floor restaurant. Yes. Fashion show. At a restaurant. The event is called Live-Style, and it takes place on 4 February at Shikisha in Newtown. Soweto rockers Reeburth will be playing (their singer has a really nice body *drool*), along with DJs Gimmick and Rodney. The fashion will be provided by Livestock Cottonwear, who are based in Pimville. The food and drinks will be provided by Shikisha (I did say it’s a restaurant) but not free of charge, obviously. So, whether you want to dine, drool, enjoy the tunes or the scenery, Live-Style is a must. Read more about it here.
If none of that interests you, legendary German DJ/ producer Paul van Dyk is playing in the country tonight. He plays two shows in one day: Durban at 4pm and Joburg at 8pm. Tickets are R250 – R430. Read more here.
Don’t say I don’t care about you.
Fifi… only one word to describe… amazing! Usually not one for such festivals but it’s about time SA came up with it’s own version of Glastonbury in UK don’t you think?
