Splashy is what being young is all about, you throw out all your worries, drink as much as you can, wear the same pair of underwear for 5 whole days and hook up with as many peeps as possible. There is honestly nothing more I could ask for, besides the whole underwear thing.
Splashy fever has hit Durbs in a big way, most conversations inevitably go the way of “dude, are you like heading to splashy hey”.Ofcourse I am,Duh.researching the event its incredible that what started off as a small bunch of peace loving hippies singing along around a camp fire has turned into the monster event it is now. The vibe has changed due to the huge crowd that the event pulls, don’t get me wrong here, things are still super chilled but a more younger commercialised crowd pull in. The sounds of balies singing along to The Eagles has been replaced by the tunes of Kanye West and the boys blaring out of car sound systems.Still, Splashy will always be splashy and that means a good time no matter what.
I have to be honest and admit that last year I did not see one band, I hardly moved away from the campsite, a mistake that I won’t make again! Bands such as Fire through the window, LA Cobra, tree63, Goldfish and the City bowl mizers will be heading up a very impressive line up for this years bash. Be sure to check out the free stage where up and coming talent get the opportunity to strut and strum their way to glory or absolute failure.
So what do you bring with you to Splashy fen? A good attitude, loads of friends, wellingtons, a years supply of beer, hot dog rolls and a tent.Seriously, that’s all you need for a good time.Do yourself a favour and head up to the event, it will definitely be a weekend full of memories.
