WIN with White Mountain 2017



Now in its 12th year, the annual White Mountain Festival is coming up from 28 September to 1 October 2017 and is the perfect opportunity to get away from it all and unwind in a stunning setting while enjoying a three-day line-up of some of the best acoustic acts in the country.

Known for its intimate, relaxed atmosphere, the festival is held at White Mountain Lodge in the foothills of the Giant’s Castle Nature Reserve, only 185km from Durban and just 25km off the N3 on tarred roads.

Included on the bill are the likes of Crimson House, Luke Lovemore (Top 7 finalist on this year’s season of M-Net’s The Voice SA), Jenny & The Jameses, The Sextons, Gunshot Blue, Lendel, Black Whiskey, The Sweet Resistance (fronted by Natasha Meister), Jerry & The Bandits, Luca Hart and Freddy Lalendle, to name a few.

Festival-goers can also look forward to a wide variety of food and drink outlets, colourful arts and crafts, plus loads of outdoor activities for the whole family including fun stuff (like scavenger hunts) for the kids. And that’s not forgetting the lodge’s spacious grounds, fishable dam, swimming pool and charming old stone pub (with satellite TV and late-night live music), which add another dimension to the usual festival experience!

Aside from general camping, which is included in the ticket price, there is also the option of booking into a stylish on-site ‘tent hotel’, offering a relaxing, hassle-free camping experience with all the comforts of home.

Expect great music, fun times and smiles all around from this gem of a festival.
Tickets available at Computicket.

    I’d love to win these tickets for my parents, ive been to the last 5 White Mountain Music Festival Events and i can say that this is one of the best festivals i have been to in South Africa. A real chilled vibe with lots to do and see. Perfect for the oldies and the kids. My parents have always wanted to go to Splashy Fenn but i feel that this will be a good introduction to the festival vibe 🙂

    My Husband and I have our second wedding anniversary in October, and it is his turn to make arrangements for the celebrations. We all know he will forget or fail miserably and I’ll be upset, so if you help him out and let me win a set of tickets for the festival I will let him off the hook and we can have a happy festival anniversary 🙂

    I really need a time out cos I have been having the worst two weeks ever, started from my pet being knocked to me losing my God mother who also happens to by my heart. Having a car fender bender and a very sick mom, I think I really need some time to recoup and just get my mind back in track with life. It’s been incredibly tough and I am just living day to day at the moment. Please give a one time pass to ultimate relaxation and finding my peace again.

    I’ve been hearing so many wonderful things about this festival, yet I’ve never experienced it for myself. I hear that it is a lively, friendly, family atmosphere with good vibes and love all around. I love live music and the idea of an all round, good people, good time, sounds amazing! I would take my boyfriend and our other couple of amazing friends. We are super excited for this!

    I don’t have a sob story to spin in order to win these tickets. lets be honest, i could think of something elaborate like my dog ate my homework and then died or its like, totally my birthday and I’ve never been before…truth is iv been a few times so i know just how epic White Mountain is.
    You see, times be tough on a Durban salary, lets be honest.
    R600 ain’t a lot but I could sure as hell think of a bunch of rad things to do with R600 Mandela’s if i wont these tickets instead of buying them.
    For example;
    1. Get to that point in the festival where everyone is at the bar after the bands are done and shout “drinks on me” . this automatically wins me cool status with everyone for the rest of the festival.
    2. splash out on chow every morning to soak up said nights bar extravaganza.
    3. Buy me a comfy as heck camping mattress so that when i slumber back to my tent i can be like. “ah rad, shot Durbanite, I had the best night evuuur AND i get to crawl onto an inflated epic bed instead of a deflated one like all the previous years”. (lets be honest no-one likes sleeping on the floor)
    4. I can rub it in everyone’s faces that i won tickets from Durbanite and dance around like an obnoxious fairy (I realize that this will damage my cool status but who doesn’t like boasting) please note that this will all be done while throwing my 600 hundies in the air shouting “let it rain” .
    5 fill my car up with petrol so i can actually get to said festival – edit – this is the more boring option but as with all adult things in life, necessary. Ill probably still dance around boasting that I won tickets from Durbanite but will most likely throw monopoly money instead.
    6. Buy a shirt that says “rich girl” cause I will actually be a rich girl. – honesty is my best quality.
    For real tho, this prize would be so epic! =)

    I need these tickets in my life, after the crappy past weeks I’ve had (breakup, moving house, leaving my dog behind and literally have my world flipped upside down) I just want to escape to the mountains with all my favourite people, chill and enjoy everything White Mountain has to offer. I have always wanted to go to White Mountain but was to scared to go alone and my ex never wanted to do cool fun things with me… anyway sad story over…. I just really need happy hippy music artistic vibes in my life to feed my soul <3

    Myself and three friends have been wanting to go to White Mountain Festival since we heard about it at the start of the year. There is no better thing than going to a festival with your best mates but since we students, it is a struggle to scramble some money together just to go. This would be a real dream and would love to crack open a could one and listen to some live music with the boys!!

    So I am writing this, not for my self (well it kinda would benefit me as i would love more than anything to spend extra time with my parents), but for my parents as I’m still trying to get them to understand they had to comment here and not on facebook, and am petrified they miss the entry.

    A little background on my parents, they have pretty much worked their butts of their whole lives to provide for their one and only child ..ME .. Once i left home they had to look for something else to fill the void. I am so proud to say they chose music. They are currently living in PMB and are obsessed with live music. Every Wednesday night for the past two years they visit a place called MITH (Music in the Hills) to watch some of SA’s best and undiscovered artists perform in an open mic environment. It has been so exciting to hear their stories of different bands and singers they have heard. White mountain would be the perfect opportunity for them to watch some of their favorite artists, as well as see some of their bucket list musicians.

    I feel at almost 60 and 65 my parents are younger and cooler than ever. They definitely know more about music than me and will without a doubt sit around the bonfires with OBS in hand later than I. They have totally turned into free spirited, music loving teenagers again.

    I was fortunate enough to be blessed with a ticket this year and would more than anything love for my parents to win a set of tickets too. Too much to ask? Na, i really feel they deserve this. We have not had a family holiday, let alone a weekend away together in years. At 29 i could not think of anything cooler than going to a music festival with my parents, Mom making early morning tea at the campsite, dad getting the skottle ready for a friend brekie, and us enjoying the fresh air together. My entry is for them, it is for my parents who have sacrificed for 29 years and who still do for me. It is for the early morning school runs and sandwiches packed with love. It is for every sports day they attended no matter how busy they were. It is for every I LOVE YOU whatsapp they send me. It is for my parents, it is for ROBYN and DOUGLAS. PMB’s biggest groupies, and the best parents any child could ever dream of.

    My entry is for them.

    I would love to win these tickets so I can take a friend with who has never been to White Mountain so he can experience it and see why it is one of the best music festivals in SA!!

    I’m already going to White Mountain this year with family and friends and have had my ticket for months. A work colleague would dearly love to attend with her teenage child but is not sure if she can afford it. It would be inappropriate for me to offer to pay for her tickets, and she would not accept then in any case, but I’m sure she wouldn’t mind if I entered this competition on her behalf, and left the rest to chance.

    She has recently celebrated a milestone birthday and needs a reminder that she’s still young. She will be with a group of folk who are sensitive and caring, and who will make sure she and her daughter have a fun, relaxing and safe weekend. I’ll share her contact details if you need to contact her with good news.

    I need white mountain in my life. It’s been a terrible year so far and I feel the only way to rejuvenate the soul is by spending time with like minded people , fresh air and the best music you can think of . Who knows the man of my ever fading dreams may be around to 😶. Im really holding thumbs because I would love to go ❤️

WIN: Sundowners at Chambers Club and the KZNPO Symphony Season Concert



As a stylish leap year treat, Urban Lime and the KZN Philharmonic Orchestra are offering an elegant Thursday evening out for one lucky couple: after-work sundowner cocktails and snacks at Chambers Club and two tickets to the final KZNPO Symphony Season concert in Durban City Hall, on Thursday 5 March at 7.30pm.

To enter – answer the below TWO questions in the comment section of our Facebook post:

  1. Who’s giant 600sqm. portrait hangs alongside the Durban Club Chambers building (the former Netherlands Bank building) in Anton Lembede St?
  2. Where are the KZNPO Summer Season Symphony concerts being performed?
Std. T&C’s apply

Chambers Club, South Africa’s newest members’ club, is housed in Durban Club Chambers building (the former Netherlands Bank head office). It is a members’ club for South Africa and Africa’s business and professional community located in the iconic Professional Quarter in the heart of the city, which is open to the public on evenings and weekends.

The beautiful building was designed by famed architect Norman Eaton in central Durban which has been transformed into a professional quarter for the legal fraternity, business community, entrepreneurs and creatives as part of an extensive city-wide project by the visionary team from Urban Lime.

One of the special features of the Chambers Club is a beautiful rooftop garden which overlooks the city – with commissioned sculptures, a water feature, quinine trees, indigenous grasses and aloes. This carefully created space is an eventual realisation of what Norman Eaton originally wished for – a tranquil roof top garden which is ideal for an after-work alfresco sundowner to meet colleagues and friends before heading home.

The Club offers facilities geared for legal practioners and businesspeople: meeting rooms, interview rooms, board rooms, restaurant, bar, lounge, parking facilities and cloakroom. It is perfect for professionals and those looking for an elegant, safe quiet place to meet, work and dine in the middle of town.

Win an elegant evening out: After-work sundowner cocktails and snacks at Chambers Club and a KZNPO symphony season concert in Durban City Hall

The KZN Philharmonic perform two Beethoven favourites, the Leonore Overture No 1 and the Triple Concerto, played by pianist, Malcolm Nay, violinist Tai Murray and KZNPO’s very own cellist Aristide du Plessis. The evening closes with a performance of Bizet’s delightful Symphony in C – all under the baton of Netherlands born conductor Arjan Tien who makes a popular return to round off the season on 5 March.

Pieter Dirk Uys and Evita Bezuidenhout: #HeTwo



The Hexagon, Pietermaritzburg: 14 – 16 November

Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre, Durban: 18 – 24 November


“It’s a class act … the evergreen Uys always manages to inject something fresh and relevant into his work. A great show and a wonderful tribute to one gutsy lady created by one of South Africa’s true sons of the soil.” Peter Feldman ARTSLINK 2.8.2019

 “That both PDU and Tannie Evita will have you giggling at #HeTwo while banishing the troubles of the outside world is a no brainer.” Diane de Beer DEBEER NECESSITIES 31.7.2019

 “Uys dons false eyelashes and presidents listen.” L.A. TIMES


“You better watch out, you better not lie, you better not pout, I am telling you why- #HeTwo is coming to town!” Pieter-Dirk Uys and Evita “face off” on stage together for the first time ever in South African history, #HeTwo comes to The Hexagon Theatre from 14 – 16 November and then heads to the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from 18 – 24 November.


Visit our Facebook page to enter to win 1 set of 5 double tickets!

Tickets valid for Tuesday 19th November @ the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre ONLY!

Show starts @ 19h30 sharp! Std. T&C’s apply.

In 1981 a woman appeared out of the dressing room of the Market Theatre, stepped onto the stage and smiled. Virtually before she even gave her name, she was a legend. Mrs Evita Bezuidenhout was presented to the audience, the nation and the world. She is still going stronger than ever. No longer a recognised Nationalist as she was during those years of apartheid rule, she is now a member of the African National Congress, secure in her Luthuli House kitchen where she cooks for reconciliation. For nearly forty years she has had to tolerate the impersonation of her by a local actor. She tried to sue him for libel; she swore never to allow him into her life and yet, now in the 25th year of her democracy, she will be on the stage with Pieter-Dirk Uys at the same time.

The question to PDU was always: why this female character of Evita? There are many answers. When he started impersonating her in 1978, it was illegal to have an opinion about anything political, so maybe an Afrikaans woman with an NP husband could spill the beans. The fact that she was portrayed by a man dressed as a woman when cross-dressing was also illegal, could force the edge of the envelope. Or maybe that she was there for only one reason: to eventually make Nelson Mandela laugh. And she did. They met and he laughed. She also embraced Archbishop Desmond Tutu who also laughed. She posed with countless legends and South Africans, black and white, laughed – with relief.

Evita Bezuidenhout will always be ten years older than Pieter-Dirk Uys. He seems to be catching up. His Darling venue, Evita se Perron, has been going for 23 years, established as a recognised international tourist destination and local satirical Stonehenge. Who would have thought that Tannie Evita would become a farce to be reckoned with, to be hailed and celebrated as the most famous white woman in South Africa? And now as a member of the ANC, sharing her weekly comments on YouTube and Daily Maverick about the state of her nation, where her Evita’s Free Speech, now past its 200th episode, has gathered supporters from all the corners of the globe? Her 140,000 Twitter followers are not just, as she thinks, in the same prison outside Rustenburg.

Now in 2019, for the first time, she and her ageing impersonator will confront each other face to face.

There can only be one winner.

#HeTwo will perform in Pietermaritzburg at the Hexagon from 14 to 16 November (Book at Webtickets) and in Durban at the Elizabeth Sneddon Theatre from 18 to 24 November (Book at Computicket).
