Friday 30 April Highlanders v Waratahs, Invercargill 09:35 The Tahs won the worst game of rugby I have witnessed this year last week. Mostly due to Steve ‘it’s all actually about me’ Walsh.

We even got some local representation from Die Antwoord who picked up a slot backing 2 Many DJs. Besides the aural brainfood music festivals serve up, its their ability to strip you of your worries and stamp your social passport with a visa to behave however you want that makes them so much damn fun, and hey, everybody needs a bit of rocking in their lives, just don’t peak before you reach the stage. Festivals…because your body is an amusement park!
