Ramfest2014_BrendonSalzer-7

Every year when the the Ramfest lineup is announced, I dance a little jig. Theres always a bunch of local bands I love, and the internationals are always bangers. Every year I wonder, If this is the plan for Ramfest, what on earth is Hilltop going to pull out of the hat for Oppikoppi..  Tough competition with bands like, Foals, Biffy Clyro, Trivium and Killswitch Engage stepping onto our African soil to preform in one neat little festival. But, they always manage to make something amazing happen. Its all about the music. And judging by the bands that came out to play in the mud, I think we can expect big things for the dust.

While some people may have been deterred by the weather, it actually played along quite nicely.. I managed to only get slightly moist and kept most of it out of my gear.
