WIN: TOPS at SPAR Bierfest 2017

Published

on

Springtime in South Africa is generally marked each year by the arrival of blooms, bird song and ever since 2011 – bier! Lots of beautiful Bavarian bier as the country’s biggest annual Oktoberfest bash gets ready to tour the country in a massive, oompah-fueled celebration of all things Bavarian!

From 29 to 30 September 2017, the TOPS at SPAR Bierfest will be parking its massive brauhaus, biers, bands, eisbeins, bootiful frauleins, beefy bierboys and a surprise or two at the Sibaya Casino complex.

True to its name and time-honoured tradition, the TOPS at SPAR Bierfest takes great pride in bringing to local Bierfestarians the best of Bavarian bier culture and with its very own, especially brewed Oktoberfest bier (brewed once a year just for this very occasion!), alongside some well-loved Bierfest craft bier favourites (No.3 Fransen Street biers on tap just for KZN), TOPS at SPAR Bierfest 2017 will be the event not to miss.

Those who have attended a TOPS at SPAR Bierfest previously of course will know that the organisers always present a range of exciting, value-for-money ticket options designed to suit all budgets. This year they have designed a brand-new grade of ticket called the Braumeister Prima package.

This all-inclusive ticket comes packed with a traditional Bavarian costume (lederhosen for Hans or dirndl for Heidi), as well as all the features of a regular Braumeister package (drink tokens, three-course meals and some other goodies). Visit the official TOPS at SPAR Bierfest website www.bierfest.co.za, to view all the ticket options available.

With your tickets booked, the eisbein in the oven and the biers on ice, revelers can look forward to enjoying that which makes each TOPS at SPAR Bierfest an event to remember – the entertainment! If you’ve never milked a cow, thrown your best air guitar moves on stage in front of hundreds of cheering fans, or simply oompah’d the night away arm-in-arm with all your friends and a happy stranger or two, ze TOPS at SPAR Bierfest is your chance!

Rock Mash-Up kings, The Rockerfellas, will be taking to the stage at Bierfest in a retro-tinged blast of hair-spray, eye-liner and skin-tight spandex (and that’s just the guitarist), meaning everyone will be leaving the event truly rocked to their core!

For more information, visit www.bierfest.co.za, find us on Facebook or go to Quicket to buy your tickets direct.

WIN WIN WIN!!!

We have x4 double tickets (Standard Bier Hall) for the Saturday session.

    Two frat boys were stranded at sea in a life boat. On the 4th day, a mermaid came up out of the water and offered them one wish to save their lives.

    The frat boys thought about it and one shouted out,”I wish the ocean was a sea of beer.” And it happened.

    A litle while later the other one shouted,”Great, now we have to pee in the boat!”

    “Yesterday, scientists revealed that beer contains small traces of female hormones. To prove their theory, the scientists fed 100 men 12 pints of beer and observed that 100% of them gained weight, talked excessively without making sense, became emotional, couldn’t drive, and refused to apologize when wrong. No further testing is planned.”

    An Irishman, Englishman and Scotsman go into a pub and each order a pint of Guinness.
    Just as the bartender hands them over, three flies buzz down and one lands in each of the pints.
    The Englishman looks disgusted, pushes his pint away and demands another pint.
    The Scotsman picks out the fly, shrugs, and takes a long swallow.
    The Irishman reaches in to the glass, pinches the fly between his fingers and shakes him while yelling, “Spit it out, ya bastard! Spit it out!”

    A man walks into a bar and up to the counter. The bartender asks him, “what can I get for you today.” The man replies, “I’ll take three glasses of your most rare bourbon barrel aged russian imperial stout.” As fast as the bartender was pouring the man was downing the beers even faster one after another. Stunned the bartender asks, “I’ve never seen anyone drink that fast before.” “You’d drink that fast if you had what I had,” said the man. “What do you have,” asks the bartender. Turning around the man replies, “fifty cents.”

    An Irishman is sitting at the end of a bar. He sees a lamp at the end of the table. He walks down to it and rubs it. Out pops a genie. It says: “I will give you three wishes.”

    The man thinks awhile. Finally he says: “I want a beer that never is empty.”

    With that, the genie makes a poof sound and on the bar is a bottle of beer. The Irishman starts drinking it and right before it is gone, it starts to refill. The genie asks about his next two wishes.

    The man says: “I want two more of these.”

    There’s a big conference of beer producers. At the end of the day, the presidents of all beer companies decide to have a drink in a bar. The president of ‘Budweiser’ orders a Bud, the president of ‘Miller’ orders a Miller Lite, Adolph Coors orders a Coors, and the list goes on. Then the waitress asks Arthur Guinness what he wants to drink, and much to everybody’s amazement, Mr. Guinness orders a Coke!

    “Why don’t you order a Guinness?” his colleagues ask.

    “Naah. If you guys won’t drink beer, then neither will I.”

Published

Milky Chance recently announced their long-awaited return to South Africa with their “Living In A Haze” tour in February 2024 which will see them perform in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban. The German Duo are excited to confirm that both Neon Dreams and Sean Koch will join them as support acts on the line-up for their shows in Cape Town (15 February) and Johannesburg (17 February), and Neon Dreams will also join Milky Chance in Durban (18 February) as support act.

Canadian duo Neon Dreams are no strangers to the South African music scene. Their 2019 single “Life Without Fantasies” reached the top of the South African viral charts amassing millions of streams in 2021 during the lockdown. The band connected with tens of thousands of fans online which led to their first sold out headline tour. They have continued to cement themselves in the industry here, having toured the country a number of times over the past few years and return in February 2024 to share the stage with Milky Chance in Cape Town, Johannesburg and Durban.

Sean Koch is one of SA’s most-loved indie-folk artists who brings a mixed bag of African and western, influence alongside messages of home, a connection to nature, the ocean and the people around him; to his storytelling, feel-good music. While rooted in his flowing-folk style, his music is diverse. From dance infused songs like ‘Lift You Up’ the standout single from his collection (including the Double MZK & G DOM remix) to the dreamier songs like ‘Feel the Energy’ that carry deeper messages of connection to the natural world and the people that surround us. There is something for everyone in Sean’s catalogue.

Ziggy Alberts announces his debut South African tour as he heads to Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town this October

Published

on

By

Ziggy Alberts’ first ever South African visit will anticipate the release of his forthcoming sixth studio album, DANCING IN THE DARK, out 04 November 2022.

Musically, Ziggy’s sound has raised comparisons to the likes of early Ben Howard or Jack Johnson. His sound is laid back, soulful and folk-tinged, and his songwriting is honest and personal. Whilst Ziggy Alberts is similar to his contemporaries in writing about his personal experiences, his music is layered with subtextual references to issues close to his heart, such as the natural world, the human experience and the wider planet.

DANCING IN THE DARK has been driven by real-time releases, including the singles I BELIEVE, TATTOOS, THE GREAT DIVIDE and most recently, THE SUN & THE SEA featuring Donovan Woods, which all find their home on the album. The new record sits in a genre – self-titled by Ziggy – as “Future Folk”. In his own words, “the album is a blend of the honest and raw, with the smoothness and touch of synthesised soundscapes, intentional tuning and programmed organic samples… that reflects accurately the range of experiences we are having as humans in our current world.” Matched with Ziggy’s storytelling and sincere songwriting, DANCING IN THE DARK shows yet another step in Alberts’ growth as an artist, his music and personal explorations, both introspectively and in the natural world.

Founder of his independent label, Commonfolk Records, and book publishing house, Commonfolk Publishing, Ziggy Alberts has managed to craft what many musicians and authors dream of – the ability to tell a story on their own terms. In 2022, Ziggy was awarded an APRA for his track letting go. He has also earned ARIA Platinum certifications for Laps Around The Sun (Double Platinum), Gone, Runaway, Heaven, Love Me Now, Stronger and Four Feet in the Forest (EP), plus Gold certifications for his Laps Around The Sun album and six tracks in his catalogue.
