Rage Festival – Lose yourself and find yourself all at the same time they say. Fucking youngsters you may think. No. Think again, One of the maddest audio and visual presentations I have experienced at a festival. Balls that lower out of the sky and change colours? , don’t take drugs at this place. Down to the nitty-gritty, here at YouthCult Media, we pride ourselves on truly experiencing events for what they are meant to be and not just watch from the sidelines to bring back the real down-low on the experience of an event. I think the Rage Festival experience is really something one can’t forget, after hitting Rage for my matric vacation back in 2015 I knew I would have to go back and do a better job. Don’t get me wrong 2015 was a jol and nothing compares to going away for a week with mates but…

Recently at Che Argentine grill in Maboneng, there was a performance by an Argentinian legend of music – Manu Sija. As evening fell, a small and diverse crowd assembled, with candle light warming the souls of the patrons, the scent of good food in the air and an unknown legend in our midst we waited, our bodies aflame with curiosity. I had agreed to go, out of a desire to experience something new and exciting. Little did I know that I would be experiencing the gifts of a musical genius. I probably should have done some research into Manu Sija, a musician who seamlessly leaps from one instrument to the next laying down melody after melody and layering them into the most exquisite of musical confections. Over the course of the evening, I witnessed a display of mastery over no less than nine instruments. This man was the epitome of…

Lush Festival 2018 Lush Festival hosted in Clarens, amongst a beautiful backdrop of mountains and hills has probably been one of the most interesting festivals I had the opportunity to attend. Every day seemed to surprise me in ways I never expected but nonetheless, this was a great festival. Would I attend again? 6/10 On the Bucket List? 8/10 Overall Festival Experience? 8/10 Day 1- Thursday: Getting overly excited about the trip, making calls and packing the last of the supplies. My brother telling me I was definitely going to need gumboots but his words meaningless to me at the time. My homie Jubes and I hit the road. A short 3-hour drive filled with good beats and consumption of road trip treats, time past quickly. We arrived seemingly early and headed for the camping grounds. A short walk from the parking under a bridge which seemed more like river drainage where…
