DON'T CHANGE A GOOD THING (TOO MUCH): JOBURG DAY 2014
Once again, the arguable flagship in South Africa’s international-grade one-day festival repertoire, Joburg Day brought to you by Highveld 94.7 and MTN, occurred at the Crocodile Creek Polo Club north of Johannesburg on 13 September 2014. If you attended last year’s event you’ll know that it was staggeringly big. So big, in fact, that you could have been fooled into thinking you weren’t in South Africa at all. This has to do with the fantastic talent we have in South Africa and, of course, the top notch quality and larger-than-life scale of the technical aspects of the show, supplied by Gearhouse SA.
This year’s event was a slamming success and saw 30 000 people attend, beating the previous year by at least 2000. Everyone involved, from the artists to the techs to the crew, delivered the goods with utmost precision and set a new benchmark for what the South African industry can accomplish.
