My Joke Fest: 10 Reasons To Skip the Coke Zero Fest

  1. The name: “Coke Zero Fest” – what kind of a loser goes to a Zero Fest? Rather go to a Hero Fest
  2. Mass dehydration and hunger at the first Coke Fest (Metallica/Centurion) was not cool – I’m still thirsty from that one.
  3. There’s no such thing as a quick beer. 1 beer = 45 minute wait. And the bar “cooling off” period? WTF? All that does is create a huge backlog of demand and massive queues when it is over.
  4. Standing ankle deep in piss overflow water in the “toilet” area while Chris Cornell plays Blackhole Sun is now a fond memory. Not cool.
  5. Lies from Big Concerts last year – ‘Separate concession stands and toilets for Golden Circle ticket holders’ – Fork out 600 bucks and it never happened.
  6. Confused South African artist line-up. Again. And those 5FM presenters. Eish.
  7. Eyethu events will probably be involved again. This is bad.
  8. Bullet for My Valentine and Red Jumpsuit Apparatus have cancelled. Like Guns ‘n Roses cancelled two years ago. Low ticket sales are probably the reason this time.
  9. Rubbish rules, that aren’t even enforced when you get there.
  10. They keep moving the bloody venue around.

On the upside, you can go and get your money back from Computicket, which is a first. If I had a ticket, I’d be first in that queue, thank you very much.

Congratulations Big Concerts, 5FM, Nando’s and Jack Daniels – You are the proud sponsors of another complete musical fuck up.

  1. Ditto. Rather pay half the money and go to the Oppikoppi Easter Festoval 24-26 April. A weekend of fun and shitloads of cool bands to see.

  2. Yes indeed: Splashy Fen, Rocking the Daisies, Oppikoppi – all much better fun, fantastic bands, and all at a fraction of the price.

  3. The only drinks available to the normal crowd was Zero Coke and Jack Daniels(nothing for the chicks) At 10.45 pm the bar closed and the concert ended at midnight. In the VIP section there was a bit more of a selection
