Spring is here! I know this not because of the blossoms, the greenery or the heat but because of the many festivals happening around the country over the past few weeks. That being said, out of the many festivals out there, Vodacom In The City is always a fan favourite and the folks have even tapped international musos The Kooks, Milky Chance and The Cat Empire alongside some of our amazing local talent.
This year, the venue changes from Mary Fitzgerald Square in Newtown to the Emmerentia Dam which I think is a much better choice for a spring festival.“ The move to the iconic inner-city park plugs into a global trend,” says Seed Experiences managing director Brian Little. “We are seeing more and more the global format of festivals being held in parks as a way to celebrate cities’ green spaces through music and lifestyle events.” Also, the event becomes a day-time event and will commence at 10am and end at 6pm on Sunday the 4th of October. This means the whole family can join in on the action! Whoop!
There will be some local acts performing on the day as well. December Streets, Timo ODV, Nomadic Orchestra, Grassy Spark and Early Hours are battling it out for the chance to play at the festival. To vote for the band you want to see on the day, SMS the band’s name to 48477.
I’ve got 2 double tickets to Vodacom In The City to give away. To enter, simply tell me which band you’re most looking forward to seeing live, and why! Easy, right? Competition ends on the 28th of September. Winners will be chosen at random. Judges decision is final. Ts & Cs apply.
