Camphill Village is a community for intellectually challenged adults. They live and work on this farm 40 kilometres from Cape Town up the West Coast and the festival is to raise funds for them. It's an outdoor concert, with a variety of great food and wine stalls. The line-up is Beatenberg, Just Jinger, Ottoman Slap, Bootleggers and Swallowers of Time, with Hemelbesem as the MC. Gates open at 11 a.m. Book online with Webtickets.
Run away from urban life to the river for a weekend of mayhem, mischief, magic and music. The line-up includes Veranda Panda, The Kiffness, German outfit Riders Connection with their bend of reggae, soul and blues, Southern Wild, Grassy Spark, Das Kapital, Jackal & The Wind and Kings Down South.
To launch the new festival, River Republic have had contra-vision vinyls printed for the back of car windscreens. If you’re the first in your suburb to claim your vinyl by e-mail, you'll get a free ticket with it. Tickets are R850 for general camping. Pre-pitched tents, chalets and self-catering units available.
