K-Day 2011 presented by Santam and Kfm!

Yes yes, rather late than never, so here it finally is! The spectacular music fest that is K-Day, held at Val de Vie in Paarl. If you weren't there, you missed out on a serious event! Great artists, beautiful venue, spectacular performances, fabulous celebs and the best party I've been to in a while! K-Day, you will definitely see me again next year!

Hundreds and hundreds of people arrive for the much anticipated event! It was blazing hot that day, so some came prepared with umbrellas, cooler boxes and some even in swimwear!

Pretty useless for the first hour after arrival! 44 degrees is no joke!

Luckily we were just a few steps away from the beer tent!

After an ice cold drink, I suddenly had some life in me again and decided it was time to go roll with the cool kids in VIP. Here I'm pictured backstage and loving the vibe!

Pictured here with my blonde beauties, Ashlea and Natlie.

I only have blonde babes in my entourage, it seems. Pictured here with the awesome musician and SA's finest export, Arno Carstens.

Backstage was the place to be!

Ash, me, Esme and Natlie pictured here with musician Lloyd Cele.

Goldfish baby! Ah, we're such groupies!

Terence Mentor from Kfm. Awesome 'fro!

Pictured here with Tamara Dey from Flash Republic. Wow, she is just so unbelievably nice!

There were hundreds and hundreds of people! This is the view from The Polo Club

Kfm, you did good!!

Sometimes the simplest of sweet treats are the best dessert! Marshmallows, nougat, brownies, jelly beans, sour worms... it brought back some memories. Very creative idea!

VIP section was in The Polo Club.

Spotted Tammy-Anne Fortuin in VIP too. She's a model and Roer presenter.

Pictured with the girls from La Vuvuzela. Very nice girls and very talented!

Backstage again!!

Elana Afrika, radio and television presenter, is proof that dynamite comes in small packages. She is very sweet and extremely bubbly!

Hangin' with radio personalities, Mark Pilgrim and Ryan O'Connor. Great guys! I think Ryan is kinda hot! And the fact he's uber nice and liked my 'hot pants', scored him some serious points.

We also got to meet radio and television prankster, Darren "Whackhead" Simpson.

On stage with Ross Learmonth, lead singer of Prime Circle, seconds before he has to give a show. And boy, what a performance it was!! I'm in love with the band all over again! Ross is amazing and so down to earth.

Grabbed Prime Circle drummer, Dale Schnettler, before their live perfomance too.
The Kfm cabs chauffeured VIP guests to and from The Polo Club and backstage. Not a detail left out.

I also met Xolani from Freshly Ground. Loving her new hairstyle!

I wonder which artist arrived in the limo...

Flash Republic on stage! They were absolutely mind-blowing and the energy was amazing!

Back at The Polo Club we bumped into SA's R&B artist, Loyiso Bala. Very chilled dude!

Freshly Ground was absolutely amazing!! When they sang Waka Waka the crowd went insane! Definitely one of the best performances at K-Day. Hands down!

Pictured here with the man of the moment, Kfm presenter, Denver Apollus. He ran around all day to help make the event the success it was. Well done, D!

Whackhead and Ryan taking a breather. Everyone worked really hard!

The view from the stage.

The Kfm team on stage. Ryan was very popular!

Prime Circle was definitely the highlight of the evening! They gave an out-of-this-world performance unlike anything I've ever experienced!! I love these guys and it was so cool to mingle with them after the show. Really down to earth.

That's it!! My wonderful K-Day experience will not be topped soon. As you can see, I was all over the place, up and down between The Polo Club and the stage and met so many wonderful people. Thank you to Santam and the entire KFM team for pulling off such a well-organised event! It was such a big treat and I cannot wait to attend it next year!
