Ultra SA '15


With the second edition of Ultra South Africa just one month away, the FINAL lineup that fans have been waiting for is now revealed! With the likes of Armin van Buuren, Axwell^Ingrosso, Hardwell and Martin Garrix among those already confirmed, the already stacked lineup is getting another boost with the addition of international headliners Oliver Heldens, Gorgon City and DVBBS - all of whom will be descending upon both Cape Town and Johannesburg for the largest electronic music festival in Africa’s history.

ARE YOU THE FACE OF SUPERBALIST? is on a social media hunt for fresh new faces that will define the brand for 2015’s catalogues and campaigns.


Announcing the first official fundraising tour for this year, Bridges for Music is proud to welcome German DJ and electronic music producer Loco Dice on his first visit to South Africa this February. Loco Dice’s tour forms part of Bridges for Music’s fundraising initiatives for educational projects like its music and multimedia school in Langa, or the various scholarship programmes that have already helped underprivileged South African artists to perform on global stages like Tomorrowland or Glastonbury.

Magnum Pleasure Store

With a choice of decadent chocolate dips and nearly 20 toppings from sea salt to chilli flakes and rose petals to chocolate-coated honeycomb, the Magnum Pleasure Store has landed in Cape Town at Cavendish Square, Claremont, in celebration of Magnum’s 25th Birthday. 

Available from this week to the public, the Magnum Pleasure Store gives Capetonians the opportunity to share the glamour of a quarter century of pleasure. Open daily from 10am – 8pm, and running for 8 weeks only until 15 March 2015, Cape Town pleasure seekers will have the chance to celebrate and enjoy their favourite ice cream in a very unique way.

Up The Creek - A Guide

It's day three and you look like a bum that just woke up in the middle of a field in the blazing sun. You're a lobster. Your hair is one, giant knot that doesn't even want to sit in the biggest elastic you ever owned. Your eyes are red, not that you've been close to a mirror, but you can feel it's bloodshot. You wonder when you'll have the taste of ice cold water or when you will have a hot shower again... This is not Survivor. This is 'welcome to a three-day festival'.

I'm probably not the best person to give advice, since I don't even listen to myself. But I've been to almost 20 festivals around South Africa, so I do have an idea of what it's about... Well, more or less.

Surf's Up!

The December holidays are over. Yeah, it came and it went just like that without me even taking a proper holiday. And before I knew it, it was 2015 and everyone was making new year's resolutions and I was just trying to get one or two more days off to spend at the beach. Not any beach, though. I prefer somewhere where it's quiet and you can actually swim without some guy's bicep touching you or someone splashing water in your face as they nearly drown trying to jump over a wave.

I do love the December summer holiday, though. I just don't like the over-crowded beaches and restaurants (I don't even want to talk about shops and malls!). I like quiet spots where you can have drink on the beach without your precious stash being confiscated, where you can tan sans bikini top without being harassed and maybe even have a braai (if you're really lucky).
