Press Release


I’ve never attended a Grietfest and this year I intend to write my wrong.

SA’s Premium Alternative Dance Music Festival is back for its third year running with the best in local and international electro artists.

Olmeca Tequila, Red Bull Studios, GRIET, Science Frikshun, Townhall and GOGO together with SA’s top electronic music supporters are working together to bring you the third edition of GRIETFEST 2013 in Newtown, Jozi and The Assembly in Cape Town.

This year the international acts include BART B MORE from the Netherlands, TAI and ETNIK both from Germany and THE UPBEATS from New Zealand.

I’m not gonna lie, the Jozi event looks like it’s going to be way more of a party than the Cape Town one (see line-up below), but no matter, either way you’re going to get your money’s worth.

Jozi also has the Hotbox Express running, providing party buses from Pretoria for those who don’t wish to drink and drive. I highly support this. Check out more info on the Hotbox Express here or buy tickets here.

I also may or may not be giving away tickets to both Cape Town & Jozi events so be sure to check back here in the next few days for some epic prizes.
