Win Tickets (And A VIP Experience) To Synergy Live 2014


Friday through Sunday at Theewaterskloof: 13 international headliners and a massive line-up of SA bands, live acts, comedians and electronic artists.

You’re an hour outside the Mother City, surrounded by smiles, in the middle of an open-air hub of rising stars and seasoned headliners. Everywhere you look, people are jumping around like maniacs cos they know there’s no ceiling to hold them back. The T-Shirt next to you says it all: “Keep calm – and carry on” Time’s standing still. You’re making memories that last a lifetime. And someone screams out “You only live once!” And you realise it’s you. It’s your best weekend ever. It’s Synergy Live. #BOOM!

Full Line Up:

Main Stage

More than a stage, it’s our spiritual home: an extraordinary audio visual production, showcasing an eqaully world-class lineup of bands, acts and artists. The big names will blow you away, but look out for future superheroes earning their stripes. It’s a full widescreen HD experience that forms the ongoing soundtrack to a spectacular weekend in the sunshine and under the stars. You’ll be partying so hard you’ll forget about selfies. Synergy Main Stage: the right tunes at the right time. All you have to do is turn up.

Red Bull Studio Live

Welcome to the church of EDM. Take drum & bass, dubstep, deep & tech house, add them to techno & trance and you’ve got the idea. Breathtaking stage design? You bet. It has to be larger than life: for three whole days, it’s home to 6 international acts mixing up a non-stop sample-symphony of fist-pumping anthems, rugged techno tracks and bone-shaking bass beats. If you like your world turning at least 130bpm, then your mates will know to come looking for you in the Studio.

The Sirius SUNDAY Electronic Music Experience

For day three, the electronic stage turns into a unique global collaboration: a nine hour electronic music spectacle of trance & progressive psy-trance with international acts Captain Hook, Atmos & Mindwave. Close your eyes, open your imagination and picture yourself plugged in to the phattest, punchiest basslines and most hypnotic rhythms you’ve ever heard in your life. That’s Sirius. On Sunday. At Synergy.

ERA Beach Club

Hoping for sarongs & cocktails, sunshine and shades? Here’s where it’s at. But for 2014, the beach turns tantastic with a carefully curated collection of deep house and techno courtesy of Cape Town’s CBD of dance, ERA. The Club is closing doors for the weekend so ERA can bring the legendary Funktion One sound system to the party – together with their whole crew and a quatro of international cameo acts: Stimming, Ron Costa, Lake People & DJ Anna. Come explore the state of the art ERA club experience at Synergy Live. This is ERA. A space where electronic music is celebrated through lifestyle, where audio and visual focus come together, where technology meets imagination as the senses are taken on a journey designed for pure enjoyment.

The Comedy Club

No festival is complete without a jester – and we’ve got a a whole cast of them on offer for 2014. Find your way to the intimate laughter-zone at Synergy for a non-stop daily schedule of comedia from the country’s leading gag-meisters. Ther’s nothing like a laughter-fest to warm you up for another night of sheer madness…

The Fairground

YeeeeeeeeeeHAAAAAAAAaaaaaaaaaa! WoooooHOOOOOOOOOooooOOOOAaaH! Will there be carnival rides? Yes, of course. As always. Because there’s nothing like having your world turned upside down and your brain rattled and make you realize just how good it feels to be alive, in the open air, with like-minded souls.

The Market Place

A celebration of the oldest food trend in history: if you don’t eat and drink every day, you die! Take a break from stage-hopping and join the munchtime crowd of gastrocats at a variety of refuelling stations. Whether you’re looking to slam a burger, snaffle a sarmie, start the day with a flat white or end it with a slice of pizza Hawaii, you’ll find it at the forecourt filling station at Synergy Live.

The Traders Square

The Synergy souk – a mall of stalls offering all kinds of festival merch, music and massage, arts and crafts and everything in between. For souvenirs and gift ideas, a cute collectable or something more than memories, here’s where it’s at. And if you’ve suffered a ninjury (‘How did that happen?’), or you’re in need of help or advice, the Square’s also home to the festival info desk.


Legendary festivals and great camping go hand in glove, but you don’t have to sacrifice dignity for a sleeping bags and stars. Roughing it is a false badge of honour. So Stake out your patch, bang in the pegs and sleep peacefully knowing that creature comforts are part of the deal: hot showers, friendly security – toilets tended 24/3. At Camp Synergy, curfews are non-existent, parties last all night, and you don’t need to draw straws for who’s driving home!

Official Merchandise Tent

The My Music Matrix Team makes a welcome return to Synergy Live, bringing with them all the essential oils and ingredients to satify your retail therapy needs. From T’s to CD’s and everything in-between, the MMM Merch crew will help you go home with more than just a bagful of awesome memories.

Activation Areas

Our various partners and sponsors will again be activating at Synergy, with various lounges, bars and activities on offer. Be sure to pop in to one of the stands and say hello to the promo girls, have a drink, enter a competition – chill out and indulge.

The Heartbreak Motel

For the uninitiated, we’re talking a boutique camp experience where you can live festival life to the full – and then retire to your own little glamour patch to relax and sleep in style.

Festival Check List

Our best advice: just bring what you need. No, really, we mean it: pack light. Depending where you park, you’ll inevitably have to carry your stuff a fair distance to where you camp so leave the acoustic guitar and kitchen sink to someone else. And as part of our ‘leave no trace’ initiative we’d definitely encourage you to only bring things which you can take home. Remember, ‘Less is Best!’ Also remember to keep all valuables on your person at all times, while every care is taken, theft from campsites is a reality.

Cash & Cards

The motto still holds: cash is king and plastic’s fantastic. We’ll have ATM machines on-site, but if you want to avoid paying pesky transaction fees and standing in queues, rather bring enough cash to last the weekend. There will also be credit & debit card facilities at the main and electronic stage bars, but remember, food and trade vendors generally only accept cash.

Toilets & Showers

This year at Synergy Live we’ve gone above and beyond in making sure your festival experience is an easy one – and that includes yet again increasing the number of toilet and shower facilities. As always, they’ll be tended to by our support staff to ensure they’re clean and tidy 24/3.

Public Safety Services

To ensure everyone is safe and sound, Synergy-designated paramedics, security and firefighting crews will be on hand around the clock for the duration of the festival. In the event of an emergency please alert a Synergy Live or security official immediately.

Water Points

The Theewaterskloof dam might be the main water supply for Cape Town, however the water in the dam is not fit for drinking unless you are a fish or a freak. Look out for the green water towers with taps located around the festival site to provide fresh water for drinking or the designated safe to drink points in the permanent bathroom facilities. Bottled water will also be available at all bars.

Synergy Live requires hundreds of thousands of litres of water over a period of three days. Please use water sparingly.


Applications to trade at Synergy Live 2014 are still open. If you are interested in trading please email

Dozens of food traders, arts & craft merchants and peddlers of the bizarre and unique apply to trade at Synergy each year. Each stall is priced individually, based on the type of organisation, the number of staff, the size of stall, the products being sold and so on. Unfortunately we cannot accommodate everyone, but we do try and give our patrons the very best variety possible.

Lost Property

All lost property can be reported, dropped off or collected from the Production Office, just off the main tar road, by the toilet / shower block. Please report any theft or suspicious activity to the on-site security officers or the SA Police services on duty.

Rumoured to have the blue-prints for Krang's TechnoDrome, stolen straight from Dimension X, he’s the type of guy who exudes so much coolness that he adds whole countries on Facebook at one time instead of just people. Always up for a party and a Tequila shot or two this is the guy who we always call first, both before and after a night out…

  1. I DESERVE THIS BECAUSE I WORKED MY ASS OFF THIS YEAR AND NEEEEEDDDD A MOOOEERRRSSE BREAK! Plus looking at that line up, one cannot simply resist. 😀

  2. Just finished my first year as a lecturer and what a way it will be to sign off the year than to spend it dancing my ass off at the ELECTRO DOME with a best mate. Exams are done, sun is out and its party time! 😀 I will be wearing a Greek flag the entire weekend to represent my heritage if I win this. That is a promise

  3. In the great words of one of the world’s modern day poets, The Beastie Boys: “You gotta fight for your right to party!”

  4. MyCitiByNight Thank you for this great Comp!!

    If you just look at my wall it says it all !!!!
    we are a huge group of friends going and i would love to spend the weekend with them and enjoy an awesome line up. I would do anything for the VIP tickets and i think i deserve them cause im not just a Synergy fan, I am a Synergy ULTRANUT!!
    I have entered every comp for Synergy and even some crazy pix with my Synergy poster and top that i made.

    Please please please!!!!

    PS Good luck to everyone and cant wait so spread the positive vibes of Synergy live!!!

  5. I would love to deserve it to be part of Synergy Live 2014 because it is going to be such an astonishing event with exceptional artist……

  6. For the last 3 years I have been wanting to go but due to exams I was unable to attend. I have successfully graduated this year and would love to go as a graduation celebration!

  7. MCBN!! THis is an AWESOME COMP.

    I think I deserve to win this because I have never been to a SYNERGY and would love to experience it! I haven’t been to a festival in almost a year, and have just been grafting work and studies. PLUS I AM THE BIGGEST Bombay Bicycle Club fan in Cape Town! By FAR!

    Me PLEASE CRAIG! haha

  8. I have been stalking Egbert around Europe all year. If you give me a VIP pass I will be able to get close enough to collect some of his hair. I can then complete my master plan by attaching his hair to the disco ball in the gashouder, which is only accessible once a year. Thus opening a portal to the underground, where thy herald Super Egbert and his army of Dutch shufflers shall rid this world of everything EDM and deep house!

    If that fails then ronnie ron the ron don ron costa!

  9. The main reason and the most ultimate reason for me needing these tickets, other than the fact the synergy will be pretty boring without me is… Love! It’s my girlfriends birthday on the Saturday and she would love it if I could win this for her. Love, it’s all about love!

  10. Would LOVE to win tickets after working full time and studying part time for the whole year. Can’t wait to party it up with the amazing people that I call friends 🙂 plus just thinking of the music puts a smile on my dial

  11. FIRSTLY this festival is absolutely INCREDIBLE who wouldn’t want to attend???

    SECONDLY) What makes it EVEN better is the fact that Bombay Bicycle Club are headlining – I cried ACTUAL tears when I read that.

    Thirdly, my broke best friend and I are travelling all the way, 22 hours on a bus I tell you, form Durban all the way through to Cape Town (we literally cannot afford plane tickets hahaha it’s a fun story but we’re roughing it out in the name of Synergy / YOLO / Things you do in your twenties) because that is how much we are just dying to attend this festival

    So winning these 2 tickets would absolutely make our dreams come true <3 We are willing to do literally ANYTHING in the universe right now – not even kidding.

    We're each departing on a new adventure next year, leaving this last festival in the beautiful Cape Town one of our last magical adventures together for awhile.

    In the name of friendship, love, music, sunshine, hearts, groovy tunes, bliss and magic, please PLEASE pick me / us <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

  12. I don’t just want to go to synergy live because of the atmosphere but how the artist that are performing creates the atmosphere. I am big fan of the head liners and do not want FOMO on see great artist crafting their work live. Dancing my heart away to their music. Reason I deserve it because I am fan of all the artist that are on the line up.

  13. i think i deserve these tickets because i wont let MCBN down, these okes know how to party,and what type of give away would it be if the ticket got into the wrong hands?
    If i get these tickets, i will make MCBN proud and go befok on that dance floor like a real cape townian , stomping untill sand becomes mud.
    i will be between the Beach bar getting filthy to the Deep and Dirty house, and ofcourse, the sirius sunday , things are going to get catastrophically weird.
    #getweird #hookabrotherup . i wont let you down ;D

  14. I deserve to win this because this year I will be a 4 star general to Synergy Live. This is the festival I wait for all year. If i had to call this anything – Synergy is my spirit animal.

    If i win these tickets I swear I will properly Fan girl out when i meet famous people. I will even make sure there is a gopro there to capture it all… and i will send you the video.

  15. SYNERGY LIVE! I have travelled the world and out of the clubs I’ve been to, ERA, has been the most incredible experience, international quality sound and lighting effects. I can’t think of anything better than that standard of music on the beach bar! Groovy music and groovy people wearing bikinis in the blazing sun! Bombay Bicycle Club – possibly my favourite act in the entire lineup has me so excited to attend this event! The fact that in this weekend you can accommodate all different genres of music to please the crowd has me counting down the days. Winning tickets to this event will not only put the biggest smile on my face but will also guarantee an endless amount of good vibes from me to every single party goer there! Much love xxxx

  16. Its been oneeeeeeeee hectic year!!!!! Would LOVE LOVE LOVE to go but are BROKE BROKE BROKE.. Never been before, this will be a early chrismas prezzy 😉

  17. I deserve this to spoil my cancer patient partner for the weekend in between chemos. Awesome treat for us…. bring it on.

  18. This will be my 3rd synergy in a row and i cannot wait to spend it with all of my beautiful friends, however due to fundage there is a special person who can’t come, and i would love to bring with me to enjoy the amazingness that is synergy live! Please please make my year and let me come to synergy with some extra cash in my pocket to spend at the festival, as well as my special person 🙂 What else would be the perfect weekend away? 🙂 🙂 🙂 <3 <3 <3

  19. All done! and shared 😀

    I deserve to win this because its my birthday on the 22nd November and it would be an awesome present to start my new year with 😛

  20. I NEED A BREAK AWAY… After a long year year of working full time, studying part-time and starting a business in the remainder of the time, I really just need a break. And with all my money going into the business – this would be an awesome gift!!

  21. Ok so how’s this for a sob story….

    I just broke up with my boyfriend.
    We were supposed to go to an epic outdoor party together in Joburg next weekend (same weekend as Synergy)
    I can no longer go for obvious reasons.
    I’m now broke from forking out for the now useless plane ticket.
    Most of my friends will be in Joburg next weekend having the BEST time, without me.
    I am very sad.

    PLEASE – help a brother out with some tickets for an epic weekend with my girls! The perfect antidote for my sad state of affairs!!!!!!!!!!

    :'( —————> :D:D:D:D

  22. Okay, soooo, rumour has it on the 29th of November 2013, myself and a group of my closest friends embarked on a journey to a mysterious land where unicorns and majestic fawns were said to roam freely. Upon arriving I was met by such beautiful beasts and I was in a land were dreams come true and only the best memories are made. Synergy 2014 is said to be bigger and better, no doubt it is a necessity to be there. My life has not been the same since the end of last year’s event, I need some balance in my life, and Synergy Live has exactly that, a balance with nature, from the Main Stage, to the ERA beach bar, to the comedy club, its just amazing. Really hoping I win these tickets, really hoping to meet amazing people, really hoping to be inspired.

  23. I have never been to a synergy before due to funding an blah blah blah blah. ENOUGH WITH THE SOB STORIES LOL!! Summer is here, great line up for the show!! Awesome vibes of love and unity!! And best of all an insane party experience to end off the year and kick start the festive season!! I don’t deserve the tickets, nobody deserves or has right to them, but if I was chosen, I would hold true and spread the love and unity, party my ass off and just have a great all round synergy experience!! Love and light and hope everyone has a great party!!

  24. I need these tickets because I have just officially become a NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training). Thus I need some cheering up. Allow BBC to soothe my sorrows with their smooth tasty jams.

  25. Writing my last exam on Friday the 28th November. Winning tickets to Synergy which I have never been to before would be the most epic celebration ever.

  26. I deserve these tickets because i am the ultimate raver making a plan to go to every festival no matter what, husteling for money when there is non, making plans for friends when they cant make it either because im just fill of love to give to everyone, loving the vibes, loving the music, loving the people. I will definately make very good use of these tickets much appreciated:))

  27. I think it would be killer to take my best friend along with me. She lost her job earlier this year and can’t afford to come. A party shared is a party doubled.

  28. I’ve spent the last 3 years festival-less as I’ve had to pay my way through getting my degree. I finish the final exam of my degree 2 days before Synergy – WHAT BETTER WAY TO CELEBRATE!!!! Surround myself with amazing friends and an amazing atmosphere. What better way to live 🙂 <3

  29. I deserve this because I’m finishing matric & ofcourse will be having an operation in Dec that’s gonna put me out of action for the ENTIRE holiday. I need to have the best time at synergy to make up for all the kak im going to be missing out on :'( I will also bring the best vibes glitter and friends!!

  30. I deserve this because I’ve had the roughest year ever, can’t take leave in DEC and this would be the only opportunity I have to celebrate 2014 finally being over

  31. “Man is not, by nature, deserving of all that he wants. When we think that we are automatically entitled to something, that is when we start walking all over others to get it.”

    These tickets would be too mad. Do I deserve them? More so than someone else? I don’t know. But I will certainly appreciate the tickets and continuously support local musicians.


  32. I want to win a ticket for my roomie whose BIRTHDAY falls on that weekend! Please let us celebrate her 23rd year on this planet the right way 🙂

  33. Its my birthday weekend babyyy! What other way than to go big and bad at Synergy this year?! Make a girls wish come true please 🙂

  34. I really think that I deserve these tickets because on the 28th November will be my last exam and they are going shitty! winning these tickets would make my whole weekend/ rest of the year!! No lies ! I would be the biggest party animal there because well thats how I roll 😉 Would be such a great opportunity to be able to party at the most amazing event – in my eyes- EVER ! <3 😀 There is a great line up! my birthday is a week after and it would just be so awesome ! 🙂

  35. I think i really deserve these tickets – i have had a HORRIBLE year as i have Cancer and have been doing High Dose Intense Chemotherapy for the last 6 Months which i am bed ridden for 5 days in hospital with 24hr continues treatment, its been tough for me and my partner and i will be doing my second last treatment tomorrow and will be out Tuesday, just in time to recover for Friday SYNERGY if i get those tickets, i really need to have a good jol and treat my lady for being there through this tough time.


  36. This is the best line up to hit South Africa, probably ever! Hats off to the Synergy team. Why do I deserve this? First off, I need to have a word with Captain Hook about my missing inner ear fluid, which has been awol since Alien Safari 2012. That man’s bass literally made the ground shake, gotta experience that again. Secondly, Lake People!!!!!!!! I will personally distribute soft serve ice creams to anyone at the beach bar for his set. Just to say biggups for having good taste. Also, my boyfriend will be bringing his magic lamp, we’ll be passing it round so people can inhale the madness!

  37. I turn 18 a day before Synergy and I’m simply too broke to attend, and all my friends are going and it will be a sad birthday if I don’t go. 🙁 And because all my favourite bands are playing <3

  38. Seeing as its more “intimate” im going to drop you okes a comment on here So the reason i reckon i deserve the tickets is because (no word of lie) i am the biggest Synergy Live fan, i go out of my way to promote the brand on many levels (Social media, Word of Mouth etc) we started off as a group of 5 couples that went in the beginning, our group of troopers have now grown to over 40 people (if you dont believe me, check my latest status on FB, that was made before this competition was up for grabs) there are quite a few peoples that havent got the money to go and these tickets would be HUGELY appreciated to making these peoples “dreams” come true another reason is…. TECHNO!!! so i hope you consider me as one of the LUCKY prize winners, yours truly, NUMBER ONE SYNERGY FAN (youve probably heard this so many times, but go ahead and ask them) oh…. another thing, i follow MCBN Religiously everyday and share your videos 24/7, heck i sometimes even send you guys videos that i think you will love, as you can see in most of the messages we have sent eachother in the past! LOVE YOUR WORK!!! PS: please dont give these tickets away just for someone trying to make a quick buck, its for the Synergy Originals, the people that matter!!! Thanks for the awesome opportunity and thank you for always making me LAG and making my day more bearable throughout the week. Im done now

  39. Help me and Hayley Russel escape to our happy place! Hayley deals with snooty folks who say things like “ooooh don’t sit with the commoners” and “do you have thinner rimmed wine glasses” so she deserves it, and I deserve it because my main line of the day is “can you find the start button on your computer screen… you cant? Have you tried switching it on?” (to which the answer is usually no). Also “Help us we’re poor”

  40. I deserve these tickets cause Synergy Live 2014 is going to be in sane in the membrane. And I want to be there. Oh and I’m the bees’ knees. No the cat’s pyjamas.

  41. I’d love to win these tickets but may they go to the most deserving person. My motivation for winning? I quit my job this year to start working independently and would have otherwise afforded to go had I still been tethered to the comfort of a monthly salary, but as it goes, being self employed is no financial picnic! Stimming is one of my favourite producers and features in many of my mixes, and I would love an opportunity to see him perform live, as well as the many other incredible acts who will be performing at Synergy this year.

    If you’re wondering what I’m talking about, have a listen here:

  42. Had such a Sick time at synergy 2013 on the mainstay beach Zone. Super keen to get down again at the ERA stage. Then rocking out to Felix cartel! It was so windy at the camp Zone my tent gave up so I need to redeem my camp master skills! Help! Please would you swing any of those tickets this way.

  43. DESMOND and Yo Grapes- Shane and Craig are my cousins(for reals!) and I have never had a chance to see them in concert before. This would be super cool! and a great way to celebrate finally graduating from med school:) This seems like the perfect event for my first ever music fest:) KEEN!

  44. I deserve to go… because I have reached that age in my life where my parents now expect me to pay for my own expenses if I want partake in family holidays. Flights, accommodation, meals, drinks, the whole shebang.

    Let me start December on high, before I have to watch ever penny I spend like a hawk.

  45. I would love to win the synergy live tickets because it’s my friends birthday that weekend and it would be an amazing present and, let’s be honest, there’s no better way to spend your birthday than jamming it out to the incredible artists in the line up

  46. Because I’m a starving artist and I’m hungry for live music, super magitastical rides and chipsticks. Errybody loves chipsticks.

    I painted 9 paintings and 5 murals. I made 16 ice cream sculptures and one sculpture of a slut, a bodysuit made entirely out of flowers which I wore to Kirstenbosch and a giant, metal, geometric bird in a diamond shaped steel cage this year at UCT and I need a break.

    You can check them all out on my website or Facebook page (but my website is waaaay cooler-I made it the other day, took me 6 hours straight.)

  47. I always wanted to attend synergy, and this year was the year I decided to finally attend. I love and appreciate all different types of music and people. Music is my passion and literally every single part of me feels whatever song I am listening to. However, I cannot attend this year as my ticket money has to be used for a car battery as it got stolen out of my car. That’s the sucky part. I am happy to just win 1 ticket so I can place my feet on the synergy soil! PLUR

  48. I’m flippin keen for Synergy!!
    I’m an outdoor festival virgin
    It’s my Birthday on the 29th of November
    S.P.Y, Stimming, Congorock, Jakobsnake, Bruno Morphet, Ivan Turanjanin and Floyd Lavine are certainly gonna change lives
    I’d really love for my friends to experience all of this!!

  49. Ugh honestly I wanna spoil a mate who has come down to cape town with a free ticket and we obsessed with the techno line up!

  50. My friend and I were really looking forward to Synergy Live. Synergy Live brings together diversity, good vibes and epic music in one cohesive experience, who wouldn’t want to be apart of that? I want to be surrounded with diverse smiles, have amazing views and headlines but most of all I want to be one of those maniacs jumping, dancing and creating lifetime memories. We’re students and can only experience this lifetime memories if we win the tickets.

  51. OMG would live to attend this year’s festival. Missed it last year & have withdrawl symptoms the whole year 🙁 Please, Please pick me. it would SO make my freakin year!!!!!!

  52. Coz 1) Its my friend @farahfredericks birthday 2) I am the ultimate festival junky 3) I want to spoil my recently turned 18 year old nephew @slatercarolissen to his first festival 4) The amazing line up and epic festival

  53. I am ending matric and I can’t afford rage and I would miss rage for synergy. It’s also my boyfriends birthday and I can’t afford a present for him like this. Would be amazing. Please

  54. Hey!!! I’m so excited to attend Synergy this year, as last year was amazing!! but I’m living the broke ass life at the moment so can’t afford a ticket! All my friends are going and it would be awesome to party it up with them for the last time before I leave for america! Im only turning 20 next year so I won’t be able to party it up in the USA , Synergy will be the perfect time to go the extra mile and drink it up and have an amazing farewelll! Please pick me I neeeed dis!
    Love ♡

  55. So I have a few reasons why I feel I should win these amazing tickets! . So I wouldn’t say I’ve done anything spectacular to win these tickets this year but I will for sure take full advantage of winning them. First of all, the other night we saw DJ fresh in long street and we were like ” oh shit Dj fresh” and got way to excited. Now that was a local, imagine getting VIP access with the amazing acts coming to Synergy?. I would die and feel pretty cool at the same time. I’m not one of those girls that go to festivals to try look good or to chill with the “ou’s” in my bikini. I go purely for the music and the party – usually have lost my voice after every party. Please mycitybynight, make me a very happy person

  56. Let’s be honest – nobody wants another 18 year old verlep rasta hond in kak shorts from Jay Jays puking next to your tent and knocking your expensive, grown up drinks out of your hand while you’re watching your favourite band.

    If I win, I’ll have a deck chair, sunscreen, and at least four bottles of gin and tonic stationed conveniently on the side of the dance floor – where people can seek refuge from all the other filth wizards and basic bitches who will leave their usual haunts in Claremont to terrorise us all for the weekend.

    Do the right thing. Don’t give the ticket to a verlep rasta hond.

  57. I deserve these tickets because if I get them, I will pay it forward ten fold to the universe. Don’t deprive the universe!

  58. Newly divorcee – and celebrating life without all the negative abuse. Restarting my life an living each day to the fullest not missing out ever again. Definitely deserve a little VIP treatment in my life !

  59. *thinking why I would deserve to go to synergy* well I really need to break mysynerginity…. good enough?

  60. Synergy is where I met my fiance. We go every year and celebrate with our mates, some of which are made during an unforgettable weekend each year. We are getting married early next year and with all the expenses we simply cannot do it all. Super bleak. Help me put a smile on my brides face. I need it…..I mean she needs it 🙂

  61. I AM the Biggest Party Animal and that is a fact.
    I don’t stop till the DJ drops.
    I have a need for the beat with every fibre of my being.
    Oh yes please

  62. Well I haven’t thrown down in almost 2 months now. Which hurts me inside, but I have been working my ass off for 2 Companies and studying for my CBA exam. Awesomely enough I write my exam on Thursday, and if I pass and win this competition I will call in sick on Friday and get the paramedics in the medical tent to write me a sick note.

  63. Up to synergy me and my brother
    will journey together as Bombay bicycle Lovers
    Just for the day, unfortunately is all we can make
    But if we don’t go we know whats at stake
    FOMO of course we all know synergy’s Grand
    The people, the vibe and our favourite Band
    So please my city by night we plead
    for two tickets, its just these two we need!!!

  64. Honestly, finishing my Honours in Education and working full time – I could do with this amazing break!! Definitely something to start my holiday and end off this year right!!

  65. I really need these tickets as my brother is returning to CPT for 2 weeks and synergy falls in that time. Would love to spend a crazy weekend with him before he goes back too America for 3 years :'( PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

  66. not so sure if it’s who deserves it who NEEDS it .
    I work 6 sometimes 7 days a week , very uptight and hectic work environment .
    I NEED to let off some steam and party it up with my best friend .

    hope you like it! Maybe it will help me in my quest for tickets.

  70. These tickets would be an awesome birthday present. And I don’t have holidays coming up, so Its the break I need. I don’t have a twitter account, so I hope that doesn’t kill my chances.

  71. We deserve these tickets because Elke and me because we are all about unity and will MAKE THE CIRCLE BIGGER! #whileyouweresleeping #afrooptimism #loveisafrican #unity #connect #vuka #halala

  72. We deserve these tickets because Elke and me are all about Unity! We will MAKE THE CIRCLE BIGGER!

  73. I started going to Synergy in 2009 (and have been addicted ever since) which would make this year my 6th year, if i could afford to go i would but alas alack the boring tale of a broke student has struck again. I cant afford the tickets but even more than that, i cant afford to miss this years event with Bombay Bicycle and Felix Cartal. I mean need i say more? You feel me? That line up is just dayuuum. Make it a weekend of celebration, celebrating my friends first birthday in SA turning 22, my 6th consecutive year at Synergy and the end of exams. I just want to celebrate properly and what better way than synergy?
    Im sure you can smell my desperation through the computer its that potent. Fingers and toes and all other available limbs are crossed.

  74. I am not going back home to my family for Christmas to Namibia i have to work and thats sad,i moved to Cape Town and almost a year now in the mother city and its just a amazing place with stunning people,this would be my first if i am so lucky but it will make up for missing out spending time with my family and can share the experience with my Namibian friends and show how its been done in Cape Town

  75. Being able to go to Synergy will enable me to 1) Go to the best music festival of the year 2) give my best friend and cousin the most amazing 20th Birthday present and 3) have the best experience of my life by being able to hang in VIP with the best local & international artists. Plus ill bring the party back to VIP all day eerrrrday.

  76. This will unfortunately be my last Synergy, likely forever. So I really want to go and make the most of it!

  77. I have never attended a concert besides a psy jol let alone a Synergy! I am DYING to attend this event as i need some diversity added to my life. I will be front and centre Friday to Sunday making My City By Night PROUD! xoxomycitybynightboy

  78. So it has come to that time of the month and well frankly the time of the year where my dear old bank account is desperately running low. The plan you ask? Well currently my two choices are either sharing one epic adventure with some beautiful people at Synergy or to continue buying food for the next month… My choice? Well I just don’t think I can handle that kind of excessive FOMO so yes indeed I choose you Synergy! Soooo… some tickets would be pretty incredible so that me and my old pals don’t ruin our New Years Weight Loss resolutions a month too soon!

  79. Legend has it that Synergy is the all time best party of the year. Unfortunately as a takkie squeaking, boots wiggling outdoor festival veteran I’ve NEVER had the chance to experience the magic synergy! I thought I’d have to miss it again this year due to a wedding….having been told a week before that I’m no longer welcome as my boyfriend has broken up with me…This would be the teaspoon of sugar to help it all go down! Nothing would be better than dancing under the stars to my bucket list band, Bombay Bicycle club or sipping cocktails at the Era beach bar…I’m so excited!!!please please please make this a reality for me!!!!!

  80. I’m reading a lot of soppy stories on why everybody else deserves these tickets , well I don’t have one. I just want to experince synergy in a different way this year and the VIP tickets would make it possible !!! Don’t brake my heart 🙂

  81. I deserve this because I’m sailing in an inter-varsity regatta straight after synergy, at Theewaters! Synergy would be the perfect warm up for my liver! (And I’ll deserve a few brownie points for managing to survive Theewaters for a solid week.)

  82. I`ve never been at Synergy before. and Ive never ever won any tickets , so that be real cool if I could 🙂

  83. I NEED to win these tickets because I’ve been waiting a whole year for this festival!!! The main reason Im going is to see Bombay Bicycle Club (the rest of the incredible line up is just an added plus!) so VIP Tickets would make my year and it would be an early birthday present! I wont be in SA this time next year so I need to make the most of SYNERGY 2014!

  84. I would love to deserve it to be part of Synergy Live 2014 because it is going to be such an astonishing event with exceptional artist…… Please!!

  85. Holy crapsticks, what an incredible lineup! I really need this because 2014 had been one of the best years of my life, and I’d like to end it off with a bang before my best friend goes to Dubai in Jan. Please guys, this is the only way I’m getting there

  86. Holy crapsticks, what an incredible lineup! I really need this because 2014 has been one of the best years of my life, and I’d like to end it off with a bang before my best friend goes to Dubai in Jan. Please guys, this is the only way I’m getting there

  87. Look, I don’t really think anyone deserves it more than the next, but it would be so sick of i won. Just saying…. Love to be part of synergy! Keep it fresh

  88. Im not saying I deserve this more than anyone else but I am saying that no one will be more greatful and appreciative of this if I do win… could really use this to get out of focus and just let loose a little after this long busy year… much love p.l.u.r

  89. To be honest I probably don’t deserve these tickets. However, I sure as hell know how to party. So should I win, rest assured them tickets won’t go to waste. I’ll honestly be there for every performance as it goes down. All over that venue at once. #madskills. Plus that ERA sound system brings tears of joy to my eyes !

  90. I need this because we are breaking my bestfriends festival virginity and we want to jam out with our clams out!! I am obsessed with this festival I have gone ever since I was legally allowed to and I always go hard I am the flower crown wearing, Lot bra rocking chick centre stage who suffers from sun stroke 3 days after!


  91. Title of the story: The tickets.

    One day a pair of tickets decided to land on our planet in search of an adventure. These tickets were pure white never been touched living a dull life. One day as a wind picked them up they hit a glass window that had the synergy 2014 poster on it. At this time they didnt know what to make of this great life moment about to happen. They packed there suitcase and instantly wanted to hitch a ride. They looked for what the best possible candidate would be. Knowing that time was short and that many were going they had to choose correctly……..We saw these two amazing souls filled with joy and a groove that was infectious? Please help us get to those two amazing gentlemen across the road to help us finally reach our synergy dream.

    To be continued…..

    I believe I uphold the synergy brand and being able to attend this exclusive event will start this festive season with a merry CHEERS! 🙂

  92. My entire life revolves around music, and I would probably sell my soul for these tickets. It would be the perfect reward after a year of struggling through second year law. I deserve these because I am obsessed with music, I need this.

  93. I’m gonna be a lawyer at some point so you should get me on your side now just in case you run into some trouble with the law one day

  94. I honestly just want to enjoy a sick weekend away with amazing music and beautiful people 🙂 I’m also a 1 man band looking for some proper inspiration and there is no better place than this amazing experience. May the best man win :):)

  95. I deserve these tickets because all my fellow matrics are celebrating the end of school at plett rage and I cannot celebrate with my best friends and I really want to go to Synergy but do not have enough money for tickets. Please it would the greatest celebration for the end of matric!

  96. Well done to our two winners:

    Jasmine Smith – VIP DOUBLE winner
    M V A – normal DOUBLE ticket winner
