After skipping Cokefest in 2007 when I heard that Guns n Roses (or rather Axl and some other people) were no longer coming, I decided that we had to go to this year's Cokefest. We ended up going to the Cape Town one at Kenilworth Race Course and I have to say that it was really awesome, which considering I was wearing shorts and a t-shirt when it got really cold, is saying a lot.
Organisation of the overall event was excellent I thought, with suitable close parking and more than enough food and beverage stalls/tents. We opted for parking opposite one of the pain entrances in what looked like a large school field which was great for getting in, but not so great (45 minutes) for getting out.
Highlights for me were definitely seeing Chris Cornell sing Black Hole Sun and Spoonman which we used to play over and over again as kids and both Muse and 30 Seconds to Mars were great crowd entertainers, including some acrobatic antics from Mr Letto. The main reason we went however was to see Korn and they didn't let us down, with Freak on Leash and ADIDAS resulting in a lot of screaming and some activity in the mosh pit, although I didn't venture there with my sandals on. Almost everyone came away looking like mine workers thanks to all the dust being kicked up.
Looking forward to next year, I have heard a lot of people wishing for the Chilli Peppers and similar.
