Wazzup Nightcrawler!

So I bet you are having a steaming festival season so far huh? Well for my part one of the best is coming up this weekend and it's going to be totally insane from what I can tell so far…

Most of you who were lucky enough to experience one of the previous RAMFEST festivals in Cape Town (especially Ramfest III last year!) will agree with me that RAMFEST really is a truly special and unique festival. Its authentic alternative rock vibe and breathtaking location make RAM The festival highlight for many Western Cape Rockers. RAMFEST also delivers a dedicated Metal stage and thereby attracting more and more rockers each year.

RAMFEST IV will be on a never-seen-before scale and a shit load of detail and effort went into the planning and organization. So let’s have a closer look today at all the features and offerings this year. Get your ticket and join me for a drink or 10 this weekend…

RAM your rhino!

It’s time once again to journey headlong into the crazy world of RAMfest! Taking place on the 26, 27, 28th February this will be the 4th jaunt across the Solent and after what was certainly one of the most memorable events in 2009, 2010 is set to be the Year of the Spectacular. As ever, Audiomatik Events company has been working their socks off to collect together a cornucopia of truly staggering acts to blow all our minds!

There has been a bit of a spruce up and spring clean at Nekkies holiday Resort this year and moved the furniture about a bit, creating a smashing new site layout, so when you get here it should feel beautifully brand new and reassuringly familiar all at the same time!
Thanks to all dedicated followers, RAMfest is South Africa's numero uno alternative music festival...RAMfest IV will surpass its predecessors, both in scale and in skandes.
