    Park Acoustics…aren’t all parks acoustic, though? Park Acoustics is a host of musical talent as is, but my ultimate Park Acoustics fantasy would be to hear the hubbub of the masses simmer down, as the introductory notes linger, as poignant fusion artists would begin to play. Brooklyn-based Grammy Award winning fusion band Snarky Puppy would be the ultimate add to any line up, and thus having them at Park Acoustics would be beyond something to revel in. It would bring so much more to Park Acoustics by giving jazz purists something to listen to, plus the general crowd would genuinely lose their minds at the modulation of Snarky Puppy key and time signatures…and support from local acts with fractal psychedelia infused sound would add to this…some African kwaito kwela indie pop from The Tutus, some psychedelic B-Hop from Bittereinder, Shortstraw handing out catchy, melodic vibes in their indie undertones styling of performance, DJ S1deshow(CPT) handling the electronic stage, with the assistance of Haezer, the masses swaying to pentatonic waves of lead synth distortion, hinted at with wound up vocals to create a sea of crashing waves and fast tempo funk beats with an exceptional groove. Food stalls readily available just around the corner from the main stage, merchandising delicacies, a surprise visit from Goldfish and the Black Cat Bones, and the fantasy is complete in inception, well, save a few details that are to be announced when this line up actually happens. Lol.

    My Park Acoustic fantasy would be to have a drink and engage in some deep conversations with all the Parktonians about music and festivals. I LOVE acoustic music, where the artists play in an intimate setting where you’re able to connect with the artist.
    My best friendships and memories came from Park Acoustics.

    • Hi Toni-Leigh 🙂 Congratulations 🙂 You are the winner of the tickets 🙂

    So… Park Acoustic fantasy would be a final surprise performance… Where the bands get to together in a memorable all out collaboration showing how when local flavours get together an impromptu spontanious eargasms may ensue… Can you imagine this lineup in a jam session… Nope! you just gonna have to wait till it happens!

    My Park Acoustics fantasy was to see Beast perform live last year, also with Black Cat Bones. My newest fantasy would have to be to party with the guys from BlackCatBones and for them to know me and know that I am the biggest fan in the world. I also fantasize about going home from Park Acoustics and not being super drunk, but that will never happen!!

  • My ultimate Park Acoustics fantasy would be to have The Barbosa Experience being the headliner, with Trevor Noah as the comedy main act. Both are quite unrealistic, but a boy can dream…

    Deep in the heart of Pretoria is a monument on a hill. This monument commemorates those who left the Cape colony and moved inland to a chunk of land that is now known as South Africa. These pioneers who where on a great adventure to find the new, and explore the vast and untouched are known as the Voortrekkers! This monument shines bright as a Beacon on new horizons. Each month we get the honor to go relax at this very landmark and expand our minds and souls to the world of music. Bands new and known. It’s virtually what I imagine paradise to look like on a Sunday. Where most people just decay in front of their television sets. Most come have the greatest of days. Seeing it’s so close to home and convenient to get to each event might just be close to perfect. Only fantasy I might have is during special events, if the organizers can line up some epic bands, is that maybe we can have a whole weekend Park acoustics camp over or not. Those to choose not to camp can pop by see the band’s and maybe Uber home. Others can camp whole weekend. It’s the perfect location for a mini festival. This would make me happy. I love Park acoustics and I wouldn’t change a thing. All that I want is more music to keep my heart beating.

    Kind regards
