  1. by now we’ve all encountered a ‘party starter’…those okes or chicks who often have the house for the weekend, call up all of the friends, round up the booze and the snacks and run around half naked and wasted screaming lyrics from crazy ass dance songs before the night is over. well…sorry to say…that isn’t me.

    me on the other hand…well im what they call the ‘party marker’. wherever i am is where a party will be! i gaurentee this! gimme a dingy run down place filled with weirdos and i’ll mark that spot as the party…before you know it i’ll have those weirdos in on the festivities! and before the end of the night i would’ve made a few new friends too.

    “if it aint on facebook it never happened” a phrase we’re all too familiar with and make it our social duty to live by. we head out and pose for all of the thunder.com guys making sure we capture those memories…but once the thunder guy has left who snaps the other pics and how the hell do they end up on facebook?! simple…i head out with my camera; Bella (short for Jezebel-the slut of the evening) and i begin to slut out her lens and flash..click click snap snap…searching for the short chick with the crazy bush of curls on the pics? you won’t find her because when she isn’t dancing on tables she’s behind the camera lens or sneakily making her way to the bar armed with nothing but a smile; she leaves with a drink or two…drama student on a low budget attempting to use her acting skills you might say…naaa its all about partying smart;)

    i’ll rock the river like it’s never been rocked before…simply put-i’ll mark the party. mark my words!
    see attached pics for further enticement.

    over and out.
    the party marker

  2. I need this ticket!!! I start holidays the day that RtR opens and what better way to ensure you have an AWESOME holiday than by winning tickets to an amazing music festival?! I love camping and I love partying…. and there’s nothing better than combining the two!

    I know how to party on the smallest budget around! I’m a student and follow the NoBucks page as a way to survive πŸ˜€ I make do with what I have and always have THE BEST TIME!
    I don’t care about sleeping! I mean really, who has time for sleeping when there is suuuuuch an insane line up?! Ridiculously funny comedians and fantastic music, what more can you ask for πŸ™‚
    And I will show those peeps at Rock the River what it means to partay!!!

    Please, please, PLEASE NoBucks! Let me rock the river!!! I want a drunken easter-egg hunt with my friendlings!!!

  3. Well hey, I would love to win this competition… It looks like this event and competition was designed with me in mind.

    My friends out of humour call me Club Masta Jay. Not only because I know all the clubs in and around CPT well its because they can call me up and I’ll organise the best night out with close to zero budget.
    With our designated Dave ( no really his name is Dave) and our designated Shane (he’s probably drunk already ) we’ll head out for an epic night , every week one of the nights out we will call the best night of our lives and in no way is that sad.
    With camera phone always on stand by to capture friends trying to get out of their property through an electric fence to the police escorting us into Tinners no night goes without surprises.
    Being nice to the staff of the night life is always a bonus , not just because its awesome meeting new people but also because of the free entrance and free drinks !
    Between being the student, practically always out of money , and the missing hole at Rock the River which is ME , It would be awesome if I won this competition !

  5. You want me to be at Rock the River 2011.

    You need me to be there so that you can get photographs like these for your site:

    http://thewishingbird.blogspot.com/2010/12/daisies-10.html

    http://thewishingbird.blogspot.com/2010/12/daisies-10_25.html

    and of course check the rest of my photoBLOG out.

    I am a river lurker of note – and what better way to spend the last few brilliant rays of summer than be in a river with crazy cool bands, people and AWESOME photography opportunities.

    I do not disappoint – pick me. Because I’m worth it.

  6. WHATS POPPING NOBUCKS!!!

    KIND regards

  7. I indulge in the freedom and senses of community most South African Festivals bless us with. The stories, booze and different stains going around, the kick-ass sounds!!! A song to be sung, a laugh that puts you on the ground the crazy ones giving a hound.

    The river that rocks and heads that knocks, I’ll be dancing, jumping, screaming, singing, drinking, spilling, not eating (It’s cheating). If its someone you are looking for that is guaranteed to be having the time of their lives and not making any wallet marks, i suggest you look no further.

  8. Winner of the Rock The River competition has to be Lexi Dewing, for an immaculate entry filled with awesome pictures and a list of reasons that made her stand out from the rest πŸ™‚

    Thank you all for entering, you would all make awesome representatives πŸ™‚

    Lexi, you’ve been mailed!

  9. Well when you say party on a budget to ANYONE who knows me, they will immediately react with my name!!

    I’m a ridiculous non-stop partier who generally goes out with no more than R50 (If even). I then usually find myself crawling home with my clothing inside out and back to front, brain turned to something that resembles Weet-Bix that has been soaking in warm milk for a number of days (I am not willing to share with you all exactly how many days, as it has actually happened before).

    I live in Hermanus and yet I constantly find myself floating between my little home town, Cape Town and Moorreesburg. Why, you ask? Well I feel it is my duty to insure the party doesn’t stop far and wide.

    As for little sleep, HECK!! I hardly sleep anyway!! It may be for the fear of missing something potentially life-altering or the simple fact that I refuse to stop the party til my liver has packed up and left and the remainder of my lifeless body is found in a poorly-pitched tent covered in glowy stickers that came out of nowhere and Spiderman pajamas over my head. Hell yeah I like to kick it old school with my pjs. There’s no time for dressing snazzy in the morning, NO! Only enough time to open the next beer! Preferably Black Label. Yes, it IS the cheapest but BY george it’s also the most delicious!!

    This ticket would rock my friggin’ socks off (given that I’m wearing any at the time)!! It’d be the perfect New Years!! I’ll be spending an incredibly INexpensive 5 days camping (compliments of great friends) afterwhich the plan is to hop and skip and jump (a little bit of crawling and staggering I presume) to Rock the River… And I just don’t see how it’d all work out if I didn’t have the opportunity to be there and party straight into 2012!! With approximately 50c in my wallet. And that, my friends, is not an exaggeration. As a matter of fact I don’t think there is even 50c in my wallet o_O
