Mahala Rocks The Daisiesby Andy Davis / 09.10.2009
If you’re heading to Rocking The Daisies at Cloof Wine Estate outside of Cape Town this weekend, be sure to tune into Static FM, Red Bull’s mobile radio station because Mahala is running the show! What you can expect is a carefully selected assortment of amazing local tunes, interviews with artists, organisers, activists, terrorists, dodgy people, buglers and other riff raff we pick up along the way. As you pull into the festival, you’ll see the Stretch, the Red Bull Land Rover Limousine that houses Static FM, so stop your car and pull in to say howzit, and score a free Jaeger-bomb for the effort. We might get you to sing an a cappella rendition of TKZee’s “Dlala Mapantsula” or Freshlyground’s “Doobie Doo” but it’ll be worth it for the free booze.
Basically as you pull into the gig, you’re going to want to tune in as you pull into the final approach to the venue. This pirate radio station only exists from 14h00 – 20h00 on Friday and 09h00 – 14h00 on Saturday. So it’s going to be a riot. And did we mention that Mahala is curating and presenting all the aural content. It should be a blast.
