RAMfest 2014 Johannesburg
The car was packed, we were ready and then we suddenly realised: “We need Gumboots”.
This year celebrated the 8th incarnation of RAMfest which was hosted at Witfontein nearby Bronkhorstspruit, a 3-day musical festival that describes itself as “Real Alternative Music”, which loosely translates into 2 stages filled with guitar wielding rock and roll inspired mayhem as well as a stage dedicated to those who love the rhythmic thumping of electronic based music.
Headlining acts for this year included the likes of: Biffy Clyro (Scotland), Foals (England), Trivium (USA), Killswitch Engage (USA). Not to be outdone by their international counterpart’s local bands: ISO, Gangs of Ballet, Pestroy and Newtown Knife Gang put their best foot forward and showed that they could go toe to toe with the best acts in the world.
What an experience, and hopefully I’ll be able to photograph again next year
