Mumford & Sons CPT

If you haven’t heard of Mumford and Sons yet, you’re probably living in cave somewhere (so you probably can’t read this anyway). If you have then you’ll probably know that they’re an amazing British band with a beautiful sound. They managed to sell out 3 days at the Grand Parade in Cape Town, and I…

Synergy Live 2015

Festival season is still here, and I made it to another one this weekend! I’ve always wanted to go to Synergy and finally I was actually free over the weekend it’s held, and I had an insane time! The international line up was all electronic, which isn’t really my scene, but the local lineup was…

The Rocking The Daisies Masterpost

From buying the tickets months in advantage, and postik notes scattered everywhere with “For Daisies” titles to trying to fit what seemed like way too many things for three people into a way too small car – Rocking The Daisies seemed to be hanging around my life for weeks. And then, all too suddenly, it…

What’s In My Festival Bag

Obviously this isn’t everything that I’m taking, this is just the small bag that I like to carry with me at a festival – holding just the essentials!  So, while I covered what I would pack in my main festival bag, along with all the necessary camping things in this post, but I thought that it would…

DIY Flower Crowns

Rocking The Daisies is 8 days away now, and I am starting to get things done in terms of preparation. I have lists of things to buy and lists of things to pack (unfortunately the list of things to buy is pretty long). But, to get myself into the festival mood I have been thinking about…

The Ultimate Festival Packing Guide

So in case you haven’t guessed yet, I’m really getting into festival mode.  While I was writing my preparation tips for festivals, I really got to thinking about how much I need to sort out before Rocking The Daisies at the start of October. I may have gone to a lot of festivals, but that…

My Top 7 Festival Preparation Tips

1. Prioritise Packing Packing light is essential, but what is equally important is remember to pack everything that you need! Make a checklist (I’ll be posting my personal tried and tested one very soon) – I like to start with the bare essentials and then add in extras as the space in my bag allows….

Festival Season Is Here

How is it seriously the 9th of September already? This year has gone by way too fast. source In other news, it’s the 9th of September which means that Spring is here and so is Festival Season for South Africa. We are pretty lucky here that the weather never really gets bad enough for festivals…

Introducing April Header & 5 Things Lately #3

 Hi Everyone! I know that it has been a while since I posted – almost 10 days – and I wanted to apologise for that. I had a lot of shifts at work, and I was away last weekend, so trying to add blogging into that mix was a little bit too much. I didn’t…

5 Reasons To Go To A Music Festival

  Music festivals – one of the greatest things on our planet. I feel like everyone has to go to a music festival at least once. It doesn’t matter what genre of music it is, or how many people attend, or even how popular it is. There’s something about the big crowds of people and…

Masqued Ball 2015 | Festivals

Hi guys, I hope that you all had an amazing weekend. I had such a good time at Masqued Ball, which was in the most beautiful setting of Kogel Bay resort- as in literally on the beach. The dance floor actually ran onto the beach, and we camped looking out over the ocean (the above…

Rezonance NYE Festival

  South Africa has one of the biggest Trance Festival scenes in the world and the Western Cape, where I live, is no exception to this. There are plenty of parties to go to, throughout the year but the one I have wanted to go to for ages was Rezonance, a New Years Eve Festival…

Reading Festival 2014 |Part Three

21st – 24th August 2014 Sunday – The last day! I always hate the last day of things, because they always seem so far away until they creep up on you and find yourself right in the middle of it. Every minute that ticks by feels wasted unless you’re doing something. Walking home for a quick…

Reading Festival 2014 | Part Two

21st – 24th August 2014 Saturday – I’ve decided to do a post focussed on each day of the Festival, so this is Day Two, Saturday. This was the big one, the big headliner – the Arctic Monkeys. I was so excited for them the entire day, not helped by the fact that every second…

Reading Festival 2014 | Part One

21st – 24th August 2014 I am just going to apologise in advance for my own really quite honestly crap photos of Festival, because I did not want to take my camera with, so they’re all taken on a BlackBerry Curve from about 400 BC so apologies. I have supplemented them with photos from more…
