So we just got news about Xavier Rudd’s show dates in South Africa… Well he is playing the Parklife Festival in both Cape Town and Johannesburg… Yes once again no Durban show. What’s worse, in my opinion, is that the following week we have the most renowned music festival in South Africa taking place, Splashy Fen, which as far as I’m concerned is right down Xavier’s alley. He is synonymous with festivals, and that earthly vibe that goes along with Splashy. A little more disappointing is he will be playing alongside two of Durbans most talented musicians… Namely Farryl Purkiss and Guy Buttery. How can us Durbanites not feel cheated in this whole situation.
THURSDAY 21ST MARCH – MARKS PARK JOHANNESBURG
FRIDAY 22ND MARCH – KIRSTENBOSCH BOTANICAL GARDENS, CAPETOWN
NEVER – DURBAN
