The last sub_urban state was forever ago. The event was shut down by the Joint Operations Committee and I’d kind of given up hope of it ever resurfacing but on the 25th of January it did. sub_urban state is a rooftop party in the heart of Johannesburg. It is my favourite one because of the types of people it draws to the event. It’s not about being cool, it’s about having a lovely day with friends and strangers. It’s about doing the Carlton and having your bass face on as the sun sets over Johannesburg. It’s about really good Mojitos, tequila shots, different genres of electronic music, getting sunburnt, enjoying good food and experiencing the best of Johannesburg. I even saw jocks mingling with hipsters and I knew we were onto something great. The event sold out. So in future rather be on the safe side and buy your ticket beforehand, in case you miss the free tickets, otherwise you will miss out completely. I guess I’ll see you at the next one.
We had a large DYD team contingent at sub_urban state. Deji and Kyle were taking photos. Yetu was shooting for sub_urban state and Ash was on that dancing grind. Here are a series of photos taken by Kyle using his Canon A-1 and Fujifilm Superia X-tra 400. Yetu describes the day.
