Innibos

Goed, Beter, Innibos 2017

Laat ek sommer uit die staanspoor sê dat ek tot hierdie jaar nog nooit ’n Innibos-fees bygewoon het nie. As ’n self-erkende fees “junkie”, is ek nogal skaam dat hierdie jaarlikse instelling in Mbombela (Nelspruit) in Mpumalanga nog altyd buite my radar was. Meer as 100 000 mense wat per jaar hierdie fees bywoon (vanjaar het daar meer as 101 000 pare voete deur die hekke beweeg!) kan nie verkeerd wees nie, so ek is baie bly ek het besluit om my tassies te pak vir hierdie mengelmoes feeservaring.

Alternatief Is Groot CD Cover

Alternatief is Groot, en wil jou die kys vra

Op hoërskool, as jy ‘n oulike jong dame in die oog gehad het maar nie seker was hoe om jou gevoelens aan haar te openbaar nie, kon jy altyd ‘n mix CD maak. Dis nou oor ek in die vroeë 2000’s (na die tyd van kasette) op hoërskool was – ek vermoed hulle maak deesdae speellyste op hul gunsteling aanlyn musiekstroomdiens. Bogenoemde CD was dan propvol liefdesliedjies, sodat sy sou seker wees. As CD-maker was dit jou werk om ‘n versameling goeie liedjies te kies, hul in mekaar te laat vloei deur noukeurig die volgorde uit te werk, maar belangrikste van alles: om sonder twyfel jou verliefdheid uit te druk. Nou het die mense agter Coleske ArtistsSupra Familias, en Afrikaans is Groot saamgewerk om ‘n mix CD te maak wat vir ‘n wye gehoor van alternatiewe Suid-Afrikaanse musiekliefhebbers: Alternatief is Groot.

What you need to know:

  • Tickets are R150 presale or at the gate. It’s up a few bucks from last year, but within reason.
  • Only 2000 tickets are available, and Matthew Mole is playing so there’ll be people for days. Buy in advance to avoid disappointment.
  • R15 entrance into the Voortrekker Monument grounds per vehicle.
  • No under 18’s will be allowed (“except for small children accompanied by their parents”. Also free entry for kids under the age of 6.)
  • The Cabin Fever dance floor is now only running every second month, starting in Feb.1
  • BYOB, but this time it’s a glass-free event.

ParkAcousGlassFree

We ask that you rather bring cans of beers & ciders and decant your wine or spirits in plastic bottles. We’ve added 2 recycling points in the festival area and we’ll also be handing out refuse bags as you enter, please keep your picnic spot tidy & recycle your garbage.

I’d recommend buying tickets online before the event, as such a stellar lineup is likely to sell out.

PS. Whether you miss this event or not, you might also want to check out Josh Kempen’s next show at Trio in Greenside: The Courtyard Sessions!
