    Real Chat, No Lie. I am 1 mad mother child so if it’s an option, I’d be willing to take it to the extreme – the human has two butt cheeks & IVY LAB is two words.. (i think we already know where this is going), but for the sake of wanting to see them live for so many years now, I may just get their name graffiti’d there! TRUST ME ON THIS ONE :”)) much love guys xx

  • Jacques Celliers

    I would not be willing to give away my left boob, but this is purely because my left boob is by far my better boob. I would however be willing to run around the entire festival with a Running Wolf’s Rant fake tattoo across my chest so everyone can know who the real MVP is 😉 and since the 26th of August is my birthday I’d be willing to donate gifts since tickets to Grietfest would be the only gift I need.

  • Kristen

    I have never been to Grietfest before, and it’s been a dream of mine for a long time… plus local talent is life, local is Lekker! And Billy Kenny WILL steal my heart so I need to be there for my future husband in case someone else takes my place …
