Confession: I know absolutely nothing about South African bands.
But I do love live music and when our roommate told us he got tickets for JoBurg Day I was ready! JoBurg Day is an annual music festival and word on the street was this year’s lineup was the best yet!
The energy was AMAZING and judging by the crowd of 25,000 people it was indeed the best lineup to date. I particularly enjoyed Prime Circle and the Parlotones. Jack Parow, who is not a pirate impersonator as he name might suggest, was very entertaining, although I don’t speak Afrikaans and couldn’t understand a lick of it.
Compared to an American music festival I would definitely say it was top notch. Security was everywhere, and I felt really safe. Can’t wait to hear some of these songs on the radio and get to know these talented bands!
