Win tickets to Rise and Shine festival!

Rise and Shine

Joburg winter seems to be over, it must be time to celebrate . Lucky for us local music lovers, it’s time for Nokia Rise & Shine festival again! I had such a blast the last time I went, I’m super amped to go again.

The line up this time is pretty epic –  not only is one of my fave acoustic musos, Nakhane Toure playing but the epic Matthew Mole will be there too. Other bands I’m looking forward to are Zebra & Giraffe and indie favourites, Shortstraw.  This fest is all about listening to lekker local tunes and dancing barefoot in the Jozi sun.

Some music inspiration

Check out Nakhane Toure‘s latest video, Christopher for some Rise & Shine inspiration :-

And here’s the amazing Matthew Mole – this song always outs a smil on my face :


I love that both these videos are shot in the streets of Joburg. Gotta love Joburg music!

    Mzansi Girl! I’d LOVE to see Zebra and Giraffe FTW! Never seen them live before, Mathew Mole and his Banjo are pretty sweet too AND Shortstraw 🙂 So 3 answers. Don’t know the others but it’s cool to hear some new music while sippin’ the straw from a wine glass!
