The final day is always one riddled with mixed emotion. For those who have been working with the festival there is a sense of relief as they enter the final stretch. The fans however are sad to see it end.

And they did not disappoint. Soweto rockers Blk Jks brought their rage against the system front and centre and had an audience jumping up and down as if it was Woodstock. If it wasn’t for the muddy ground you would have seen mosh pits all over the place.
