Ramfest Poster
The RAM is finally here! So pack away your suits and books and take out your crazy party clothes (hat tricks included) and get ready to have the time of your life!

The RAM's been fed some adrenalin and Vitamin B cocktails since last year and it is ready to break out of its cage. It’s the calm before the animalistic musical storm.

In the words of Richard Brokensha, lead singer and guitarist of Isochronous: “Excited to melt some faces during the Isochronous set, gonna bring the bounce with Tumi, and gonna play some extremely dangerous guitar with Bittereinder.”  This can only be a sign of all the mad “RAMness” to come.

Apart from having two international acts “Funeral for a Friend” (UK) and Alkaline Trio (USA) headlining RAMFest 2011, we are also excited to have Tom Deluxx, a dj/producer from France on the bill.

Tom Deluxx has a solid reputation on the international electro scene. He  has successfully managed to set the stage for renowned electronic artists, such as Justice, The Bloody Beetroots, Boys Noize or SebastiAn.  His EPs "Drama Queen" (2007),"Curse Words" (2008), "Reactivate" (2009), "Run" and "Wasted" (2010) released by Boxon records and Freakz me out records have been well received by both the specialized press and other famous djs. He also remixes for artists like Cyberpunkers, Designers Drugs, Gigi Barocco, and many more. Presently, he divides his time between producing superior tracks and spinning at the best clubs in the world. Catch Tom Deluxx’s awesome set at the electronic stage on Saturday morning, 01:00am.


Audiomatik Events and Hilltop Live proudly present a sizzling line up that features two international bands, as well as some of the best music that SA has to offer.
