A while ago I wrote a short Live Mag SA Cool Hunters feature on webisodes to watch. Out of the five I listed, two made me extremely giddy but StereoTypes- Are you a Hipster, featured on the Pharell Williams -produced I am Other show got me and a few others laughing! A presenter basically goes around asking random people if they think they’re hispters. Anyway it got me thinking about the “hipster movement” so without trying to be too serious I decided to put together a list of top 5 activities, events and stores for Jozi Hipsters. If you’re still confused about who these guys are , use this list as a hipster tracker.

In no particular order here they are :
