RAMfest 2013 – Joburg Line-up, highlights and a stupid joke.

4 Feb

It’s the return of the RAM!Ram-JHB-low-res

Yes kids, RAMfest (Real Alternative Music Festival) returns to Riversands Farm (near Fourways, Johannesburg) on 15 & 16 March 2013. I say this to you, thinking that you are a dumbass if you don’t already know it.

What you might very well not have noticed yet, is the line-up for the event. This is wrong, coz you really, really need to see it… and hate February, as well as March1-14 for standing between now and then.

This year the Joburg leg of the festival is spread over two days, with 3 stages. As usual I don’t really care about the electronic stage, but my friends that are into that type of shit all seem to agree that even that line-up is awesome.

Of the many bands, it’s obvious that the big ones will stand out. Van Coke Kartel, Jack Parow, Rise Against, Bring me The Horizon , Pestroy needs no mention. You know who they are, and that you will want to see them.

Bands I would like to highlight, and that you need to check out, are the following:

  • North of Winter
  • Black  Cat Bones
  • Man As Machine
  • Beast
  • City of Heroes
  • Jet Black Camaro
  • Tailor
  • The Smoking Mojo’s

RAMfest on the interwebs:

I look forward to seeing you all at RAMfest 2013!

Lastly, as promised, a stupid joke:
A police officer stops a blonde for speeding and asks her very nicely if he could see her license.
She replied in a huff, “I wish you guys could get your act together. Just yesterday you take away my license and then today you expect me to show it to you.”
