i love how capetonians don't work on a friday. i've received 2 emails all morning.
With just a few days before Rocking the Daisies 2012, festival-goers can expect a twist this year with the launch of the Capitec Bank SwapShop.
From 5 October (12pm to 8pm) and 6 October (between 10am and 8pm), guests can visit Capitec Bank’s Swap Shop at the Green Village to score some cool festival stuff from the bands and other festival-goers.
All the stock will be available by swapping rather than spending cash.
So how does it work?
Check this out:
- Get it graded and start swapping
- Choose items from the different sections “things to look hot in”, |festival survival equipment”, “pre-owned by a rockstar” or ‘space oddities’ too add some festival fun
- No money needed, it’s all about going cashless
Now last week Swap Shop SA approached me to swap something with them and naturally, I added my items to the “festival survival equipment”. I’d like to think I’m a pro where this kind of “survival” is concerned. What does it include? Well, “Texx’s Tools” includes a lighter, sunblock, rizla, a box of myprodol and some kinda booze
Check out below what a few other bands and personalities have agreed to swap:
- Mamello – Adiddas shoes
- Jeremy Loops – Shirt
- Moving House – 2 mixed CDs
- Two Minute Puzzle – Dan’s sticks, Pat’s old watch, CD of Andrew’s solo project, and their full-length album.
- Beast – “Festival Survival Kit” carefully packaged for just this purpose by the members of Beast.
- Shadowclub signed – Isaac’s sticks and Jacques t shirt used for the KOL tour, and of course… Isaac’s favourite slippers.
- Desmond and the Tutus – Signed drumsticks, 2 CDs, a vinyl and stickers
- Beatenberg – A bag which was used in Beatenberg’s first year of gigging to carry cables. As much as they forced it, the bag was not big enough, so they’re hoping someone can give him a better home, with some better use.
Such a great, novel idea for broke-ass people. And if you’re still confused, watch the video below for a quick 101 and while you’re at it, follow Swap Shop on Twitter @SwapShopSA for breaking announcements.
