Bad News from Ramfest – around the corner

Soooo RamFest finally made the announcement regards to a replacement band for As I Lay Dying, who had pulled out of the event previously.. I bet you are wondering who it’s going to be… Well there is no replacement unfortunately. What we reckon is they should get someone like The Narrow to join the show, especially for the Durban show, that is now a bit lacking.

Well either way with Ramfest just around the corner, in just over a month, we thought we’d start filling your ears and eyes with some songs from the artists that are lined up to perform at the events…

Old News Ramfest 2013 – Rise Against Headlining

Better late than never, but we are particularly excited about this news, its old news now but the thought still excites…

The annual music concert, Ramfest, is gaining momentum every year. Known for bringing out some of the best less-than-mainstream bands out to our shores, with the likes of Alkaline Trio and Funeral for a Friend in previous years.

This year is no different with American based American punk rock band, Rise Against, from Chicago, Illinois, coming to South Africa. They will be performing shows in JHB, CPT and can you believe it Durban. (So all us Durban kids wont be throwing our toys out the cot this time around)
