Mosh moshity mosh mosh MOSH!
Yep the time is drawing nearer for this year’s My Coke Fest 2009.
Not so long ago I did a bit of a negative posting on this year’s festival, which I still consider for good reason.
The line up for the 2009 Coke Fest lacks the oomf that last year’s amazing bands delivered.
What went wrong? Who was responsible for gathering up this year’s headline bands?
All I know is that Coca Cola is going to have to pull out some major stops to be a success.
When I think about the South African Coke Fest, I really have to exhale a rather teary sigh, as it always takes me back to 2006 when I was living in London and went to the Download metal festival.
Ok first off, I know that South Africa hasn’t got the ability to put together a music festival on the scale that international spots can….the money isn’t there and neither is the crowd support.
I have been waiting with baited breath for the release of the next big headlining name for Coke Fest and I really thought they would save the best till last….who would it be, Trivium, Devil Driver, Iron Maiden….no, no it turns out to be The red jumpsuit apparatus…red jumpsuit frigging WHAT?
Sorry guys but can you please help me understand this choice, are you on a budget? Did the other band choices contract a deadly disease and can’t make it?
Not 1, not 2….BUT 3 bloody emo bands on the headlining list.
Bullet for my valentine (who I have seen already and seriously weren’t anything amazing), Panic at the disco and now The red jumpsuit apparatus.
