Heinken Rocks Experience Cape Town 2012
People say I have a lucky streak, I say in order to win you have to enter. My most memorable win to date has definitely got to be winning an all-expense-paid trip to Cape Town for this amazing event that totally rocked. The main sponsors of this prize were Heineken, The Sunday TIMES, Kulula, and Grandwest Casino. I felt like a true celebrity with the cameras constantly clicking pictures of me. This is truly of those moments you will treasure forever
This event was held at the Grandwest Entertainment centre where we were treated like true VIP guests with goodie boxes in our rooms.We had a very tight time schedule and the best Hosts ever thank you Andile and Louise.
This amazing experience took place over 2 days four flights later with less than 3hours of sleep left me on a total high. The concert was an amazing fusion of rock, and classical with a South African twist. The cream of the crop in terms of SA local talent was part of this production. My highlight was meeting MiCasa and Chiano Sky, amazing performances from Zolani ( Freshly Ground), MiCasa, and Chicano Sky left me breathless. Meeting the stars of the production at the Heineken after party was so great they were all so humble and down to earth and didn’t mind posing for pics .
For me, this was the first time I have experienced such a concert on this large scale. It made me so proud that we have such amazing talent in South Africa and yes we need to show the world this homegrown talent. I was so taken by the concert that 2 days later I purchased a Chiano Sky and a second copy of MiCasa which is now a platinum CD!
To the organizers of this amazing event well done on the excellent fusion of music. I wait for Heinken Symphonic Rocks 2013 :)I only wish that this production would come to Durban as well.
