|The 2018 Splashy Fen Music Festival Was A Beautiful Success |
04 Apr 18
"As you reflect over the coming days, concentrate on engraving the memories of a special 4 days on a Southern Drakensberg farm called Splashy Fen. A festival where the exchange rate, politics, news, conflict & judgement are forgotten, but instead family, friends, happiness and consciousness are embraced. A festival that brought 7 000 South Africans from all walks of life together. Thank you Splashy Fen. You have fulfilled our souls & we hope we have managed to fulfil yours. Until 2019... STAY HUMAN. Stu & Fuzz"

|King Kong |
27 Dec 17
I avoided "King Kong" at the Fugard Theatre earlier this year due to my ill-informed, foreign assumption that it was a musical production of the American monster film. However, upon discovering my ignorance, I was delighted to find the iconic South African musical returning for another run.
|Fame - The Musical |
18 Dec 17
To be honest, I'm not really a fan of musicals. So when invited to review a youth production of "Fame: The Musical" (directed by Yvonne Copley), I was less than enthusiastic. However, on a brisk Sunday afternoon yesterday, I found myself at the Masque Theatre in Muisenberg for the first time.

|Zakifo - It's What You Need |
07 Jun 17
Lurking on Durban’s beachfront is a music festival done a bit differently. It has eschewed the grubby campgrounds and 24 hour rumbling basslines for a carefully curated inner city experience. This isn’t original – we’ve seen day fests come and go – but what sets Zakifo apart is its emphasis on importing talented and often underrated artists from across the globe.
|3 Tons of Fun |
24 Apr 17
