I just want to say that I’m completely blown away by the awesomeness of the line-ups for this year’s 2013 Campus Invasion Tour. If you’re a fan of SA Music, you should not miss out on this. I plan to make my way both the Pretoria and Johannesburg legs of this year’s tour, so keep a look-out for a 35 year old bald guy with a camera, that will probably be me. This is going to be awesome, mark my words.
