Featuring nine bands on a big stage in a huge marquee with 30 000 watts of sonic power, this year’s event is set to be a blast.
One of the highlights of the show will be the official Cape Town launch of Dan Patlansky’s new album Introvertigo. Patlansky has just completed a two-month European tour with guitar maestro Joe Satriani.
There will be food stalls, family entertainment and, of course, music for 10 hours straight.
There will also be a lucky draw for a Fender Stratocaster, a cash prize as well as Paul Bothner Music vouchers. The event starts at 12.15pm. Entry is R220 and lucky draw tickets are R30. Book through Computicket. For more information, phone Hillcrest Quarry at 021 976 4959 or visit www.bluesmeetsrock. co.za
