Camphill Village, on the West Coast near Cape Town, is gearing up for their third music festival. It will feature top bands Freshlyground, Majozi, Bootleggers, Albert Frost and Jackal & the Wind. It aims to have something for everyone with food trucks and stalls, as well as beers, wines and ciders in the bar tent. The fest is a fund-raiser for the Village, a community of intellectually challenged adults who live and work on the farm. It's only a 40-kilometre drive from Cape Town, but this year you have the option to camp overnight as well. Get tickets from Webtickets and more info on the Village website.
