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.


Virgin Festival Cancelled

Yes, in keeping with tradition of cancelled acts (Guns ‘n Roses/Nickelback), poor organisation (Coke Fest) and downright disappointment for South African music fans, Virgin Festival has been cancelled. why am I not surprised. Not that I really wanted to see Maroon 5 and Snoop Dogg sharing a lineup – that, imho, is just lame and shows a complete lack of understanding of the audience – Snoop Dogg fans, Maroon 5 fans and Sugababes fans tend to not overlap so much… how could they miss that?

But don’t worry Virgin, we’ll definitely buy tickets when you schedule the next one just so you can continue to fuck us around. Way to go to keep a loyal audience!

Oh, and 5fm, you’re probably not innocent in this one either. Why is it that *every* concert 5fm touches turns to shit?

[If you have tickets, go get a refund now, cos you never know if the concert will happen again – don’t believe computicket BS – computicket still owe me money for Nickelback, but of course, there’s no record, cos I hadn’t collected the tickets, only paid for them.]

[Hello, uhm, Virgin – Maybe you should update with an apology??]
