A party in the park

Rise and Shine festival Crowd

Rise and Shine festival, one of my fave Joburg fests is back, right on time for a farewell party to winter.

It’s about time. Joburg is finally warming up to spring. The days are longer, the nights much warmer – it’s time to bust out the flip-flops and the sunscreen. Festival season is starting again! Fancy a party in the park dancing to local bands under the Jozi sun, barefoot, beer-in-hand and bopping to hip bands?


Birthday fun in the sun!

In March I celebrated my birthday at the last Rise and Shine fest with around 30 friends. Such a jol! Part one of my birthday started at Rise and Shine fest after which we moved the party to Soweto for the Drumbeat Festival.

We danced,  lazed in the sun, drank coconut cocktails and feasted on lamb shwarmas and fish tacos.  It was pretty damn epic.

My friend Vera got me this blow up crown for by birthday. Of course I rocked it! (Thanks Aya for the photobomb!)

A party in the park

So the latest installment of Rise and Shine fest takes place on Saturday 22 August at Sandton Central Park from 8am- 6pm. Great to see that old favourites Boo are headlining the event.



Boo – the original Monki punk band

I’m also amped to see the New Academics, Bye Beneco and Mr Cat & the Jackal. I haven’t heard any of the other bands before, so looking forward to discovering some new bands
