In case you did not know, WoodCrock is the birthday party of Conrad Jamneck. It started 15 years ago at the legendary Nile Crocodile in Pretoria. “Wood” because it was held over the same weekend as Woodstock 69 and “Crock” well duh! The rest is history.

There have been numerous WoodCrocks at great venues like Cool Runnings Hatfield, Nile Crocodile, Cafe Barcelona, Kelly’s, Tweefontein Melkery, etc. The last 2 editions were held at Blue Moon (in 2016 and 2017).

I went to WoodCrock 12 in 2017 and we had a vet jol. It was totally worth the 3.5 hour drive from Gauteng. Blue Moon is a magical live music venue that will blow you away. Mark my words.
