I bought a ticket to the Bushfire music festival in Swaziland only because Sands was performing. I was convinced I would not have a good time, but I had been trying to see Sands since his hit song Tigi hit the radio waves sometime in October or November, so I succumbed.
I actually had a great time minus the lack-of-sleep induced cold. I focused on seeing all the musical acts I wanted on my time rather than waiting around for others.
This included showing up early for the Sands performance so I could be in the front row.
It was an awesome show, and I look forward to more performances.
And then the following day I spotted Sands from behind, screamed like an adolescent girl, and made my friends stop so we could get a photo.
