The Republic of Mieliepop is here, and man alive what a party it’s gonna be this year!

A 4 day camping experience with 60+ live acts on 4 stages at arguably the coolest festival venue. There will be food stalls, hot showers & lots of additional outdoor activities. For Mieliepop veterans, 2017 has a pretty cool surprise for you: This year, the barge is hosting comedy sessions in addition to the regular booze cruises… so don’t miss out on that!

In addition to setting up my regular festival food stand so that you can get some of South Africa’s best Pulled Pork all up in your face, I’ll also be setting up a braai area with braais, free wood & charcoal … just bring your chow. If I’m in the area I’ll do the braaing for you, or you can go ahead and braai it yourself. And as if that’s not enough, you can also win free chow every day if you win the tickets I’m giving away… scroll down for details on how to enter.

If you’re a sun chaser, moon lover, adventure seeker, deep breather die-hard yogi or perhaps just dipping your toes in the reflective waters of yoga as a beginner, then there’s some good news… Yo.Go.Flo are there to help you get your fix on. Catch all the YogaFlow Festival info here: http://www.mieliepopfestival.co.za/yo-go-flo/

Park Acoustics – Score free tickets & chow

Park Acoustics July 2016 Poster

Park Acoustics July 2016

If you follow me on any of my social channels, you may have noticed that I spent nearly 2 months travelling and braaing up a storm (as soon as I get my broken laptop, lost cellphone pics, access to accounts long forgotten etc. etc. sorted, I’ll share some of those stories here as well… maybe 😉).

Anyway… so the travelling was awesome, but the only downside was that I missed 2 x Park Acoustics parties IN A ROW… The last time I was there was with my Birthday Pork SpitBraai. i.e. I haven’t had my Park Acoustics fix in 3 months. This will all be rectified at the end of July though when I’ll be back at my post (look for the smoke trails above and behind the main stage), and I hope you will all be joining me.

Man alive! What a line-up for getting my fix on:

Karen ZoidGerald ClarkFor the first time ever, South Africa’s Queen of Rock, Karen Zoid is headlining. She is supported by some more epic acts in the form of Gerald Clark, Manouche, Bark, Hey!Bang!Dead! and lots more. The comedy stage is also going to be one for the books. 3 big names, David Levinsohn, Malcolm Fereira and Warren Robertsohn, will be up on stage to entertain us. So hurry up and grab your tickets now. Just R120 when paid for online otherwise you can grab one at the gate for R150. Students can get tickets for just R100 from Capital Craft, Aandklas & Open Window when presenting a valid student card.

Park Acoustics July 2016 PosterOf course you could also simply win yourself a free ticket, there are 5 to give away. How do you get one?

Simply do any (or all) of the following (Entries close midnight 21st July, I’ll pick a winner on the 22nd):

  1. Comment below telling me what your favourite Karen Zoid song is, and/or
  2. Drop me a tweet (and tag @parkacoustics & list your favourite Karen Zoid song), and/or
  3. Share your favourite Park Acoustics pic/memory on my Facebook page, and/or
  4. RT the following tweet/

As always… In addition to your free ticket, you’ll also get a Pulled Pork Burger or Boerie Roll. SCORE!

So get those entries in, dust off your dancing shoes, clear your sing-along pipes… and I’ll see you up at the fort!

They’ll be joined on stage by Grassy Spark, The Moths, Rambling Bones, Jack Mantis & Andre Geldenhuys, MoeJoe and more in what promises to be an EPIC 6th birthday celebration for Park Acoustics.

Alternatively, please feel free to bring your own meat and you can either braai it yourself, or I’ll do so for you… just look for Borries & I near the smoke wafting about above the stage.

March Park Acoustics… in April

Park Acoustics March 2016 Banner

There’s no Park Acoustics in March… but fortunately that’s just because we’re going to be partying it up a week later on 3 April.

2016’s 3rd installment of Park Acoustics promises to, as always, bring you top quality acts from all over the country to the party bowl, also known as Fort Schanskop at the Voortrekker Monument. On stage you’ll be able to catch Gangs of Ballet, Thieve & Bam Bam Brown for their first Park Acoustics, as well as the legendary Guy Buttery, power trio Coelacanth and the ever growing Pop Art Live. As a bonus, please take note that this will also be Thieve and Guy Buttery’s new album launches.

We’ll be wrapping up the day’s festivities with some wicked laughs from Chris Forrest, Allyn Adams, Glen Bo and Umbillo Cream on the comedy stage.

Sound like fun? Of course it does… head on over to http://www.parkacoustics.co.za/tickets/ and grab your tickets now!

Yes, you can bring your own booze (but no glass please) and snacks… but trust me when I tell you to bring extra cash along: Borries & I will be on our posts (at the braai above the stage), ready to entice you with our now-famous Pulled Pork and Smoked Boeries, and the soon-to-be-famous smoked chicken wings. Alternatively, please feel free to bring your own meat and you can either braai it yourself, or I’ll do so for you.
