LITTLEGIG 24H FESTIVAL WAS PROBS THE BEST JOL WE HAD IN FEBRUARY

No matter what age you are, I imagine that going away for a weekend with dear friends has to be one of the most fun experiences for anyone. I personally try to get out of town as much as possible, whether with friends or boo thang. In fact, such was the case with us a couple of weeks ago on the 13th and 14th of Feb when we went to the Littlegig 24hr festival. Our friends the Kumalo sisters (Zodwa, Zanele & Kholeka) as well o.g. skattie Bee Diamondhead were flying down for Littlegig. Zanele & Zodwa were also doing a bit of deejaying. Sandiso and I picked them up from the airport and literally headed straight to the farm in Stellenbosch where the festival was at, starting from 12 noon on Saturday, and running until 12 noon on Sunday. Just to set the scene for you: the tickets for the festival covered accommodation, which was a tent with two inflatable mattresses, as well as all drinks, food and even cigarettes. So great to not have to think about one’s wallet at a festival. I’m not gonna go into detail about who the headline chefs, artists and deejays were. All that info is available on littlegig.co.za. All Imma say is – I’m definitely going back next year.

I am not ageist – some of my best friends are youths – but I must also confess that the slightly older average age group of naughty people in their 30s and 40s made it extra fun. The closer I get to 40 (2 years, 8 months, 6 days, 12 hours. Not that I’m obsessed or anything) the more I enjoy partying with people who were of legal drinking age in the 90s. Anyway, I must take my cap off to festival organizer Georgia Black for this one, I could have done it for 48 hours and more. Also, personal recommendation from me: if you haven’t gone out of town with your friends yet this year, whether for a festival or just a simple time-out, get it the fuck together skattie, gather your friends or your boo and get out of town for a weekend. Trust me, you deserve it.
