The Tiger Rocks The Daisies Chapter 2: Friday Super Mario

DSCF0455The first morning of a festival is the best by far.

All the troopers from the night before slowly start surfacing, giving one another silent nods of approval from across their respective campsites while the morning sun shines impossibly bright all around you.

First thing I did when I woke up was put my sunglasses on. Second thing I did was down a sachet of rehydrate followed by two liver pills and two Myprodols in rapid succession.

Lastly, I put the Tiger hat on and got ready to face the day though all the preparation in the world wouldn’t have got me ready for the insanity to follow.

The Tiger Rocks The Daisies Chapter 1: Thursday Rocket Fuel

altb61dcd58d1f012888162b07b13e525efThere were animals everywhere in furry onesies or in animal hats and I was one of them, rocking a tiger head hat rented from a costume shop for six-year old kids.

The baddest cat in the jungle, grinning like a maniac from ear to ear and laughing, just laughing my ass off the entire weekend.

Truth be told, from Thursday to Sunday, way too much awesomeness happened for one post.

The last thing I want to do is ram a 10 000 word piece down everyone’s throats that no one reads so instead I’m breaking this down day by day and hitting you guys with only the good stuff, that infectious craziness that makes festivals like Rocking The Daisies so awesome because that’s all anyone really cares about in the end.

This. Is. DAISIES!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         Rocking The Daisies is finally here Party People and holy balls are we going to have a killer weekend.

Sure, it looks like we’re in for a bit of rain tonight and maybe Saturday night, but is that going to stop us? Fuck no! We are going the man the fuck up, and party like our lives depend on it.

This is not Rocking The Tulips. It’s not Rocking The Roses or Rocking The Motherfucking Chrysanthemums. This is Rocking The DAISIES, bitches! Ya’ll better bring your A-game because this Tiger is rearing to go and ready for ANYTHING.

Rocking The Daisies Must-See Bands (Part 3)

bloc-party-050629-799747Excitement for this year’s Rocking The Daisies 2012 is mounting party people! Three sleeps and I’ll be there, cracking open a cold one at Camp Tiger and letting the good times roll.

So in this, the last instalment of my must-see bands, I am going to be tackling the bands you can’t miss on the main stage on Saturday.

Sure, there are other stages and other bands I could be covering, but as mentioned before, I can’t research every band at the festival so if there are other acts you think deserve some love, hit me up in the comments section.

The Tiger Swaps His Mind For Tiger-Print Tighty Whiteys

Tiger UndiesI think it’s a testament to my skills as a blogger that I’ve turned SlickTiger into a brand people understand so well that I have not one, but TWO pairs of tiger underpants donated by strangers.

But it doesn’t stop there, as part of Capitec’s “Swapping Mall” initiative at this year’s Rocking The Daisies, I will soon own THREE pairs of tiger underpants!

Can anyone reading this handle that?! I was speechless with joy when Capitec contacted me, offering me the underpants you see in the picture above in exchange for something, anything, that I’d like to offer up in return.

Rocking The Daisies Must-See Bands (Part 2)

KongosNow that I’ve recovered from the “IDFFLT” state that I found myself in last week, it’s time to get things back on track with my second Rocking The Daisies Must-See Bands post.

Originally I was going to break this festival down stage by stage until I realised how much work that would be on my part.

Instead, I decided to go day by day rather, a much less painful option.

So the first post pretty much covers everything for Thursday as there’s only going to be one stage up and running. Come Friday however, the festival will start coming alive and when it does, these are the bands you need to check out.

Rocking The Daisies Must-See Bands (Part 1)

Wstock MafiaFor those of you that didn’t catch my tweet earlier this week, my media accreditation for Rocking The Daisies has been sorted!

Having learned the hard way from Synergy last year, this time around I kept it classy and applied way the hell in advance and having seen the lineup I am beyond fucking excited.

So every Friday leading up to RTD12 I’ll be posting videos and tracks from the bands you HAVE to catch this year come hell or high water.

To keep it simple I’m breaking it down one stage every week, starting with the Thursday night “Campsite Stage” which kicks off at 6pm.
