The 26th Splashy Fen is almost here and I am literally counting down the days!
Matthew Mole, Shortstraw, aKING and Dan Patlansky are among the many top live acts set to perform to thousands of fans at this year’s Splashy Fen Music Festival, which is coming up over the Easter long-weekend from 2 to 6 April.
Also on the bill are the likes of Taxi Violence, KAHN (frontman for The Parlotones), MonArk, Beast, Hot Water, Urban Creep, The Muffinz, Mickey Burns, The Anti Retro Vinyls, Nakhane Toure, Die Wolvedans, Majozi, Reburn, The Kiffness, Pascal & Pearce and 5FM DJ Catherine Grenfell, among many others.
“In short, festival-goers can expect an awesome line-up of the very best in SA music, featuring many big names as well as some of the hottest new acts on the music scene,” says event organiser Pedro Carlo.
Visitors can also look forward to multiple stages, a new EDM marquee featuring more than 30 DJs, as well as a craft beer arena, drum village, loads of food outlets and a colourful craft market and retail zone. For the more energetic, there will also be bag jumping, dirt boarding and a fun trail run presented by TRAIL Magazine.
Held on a farm near Underberg in KwaZulu-Natal, Splashy Fen has been going strong since 1990 and is South Africa’s longest-running annual music festival. With its spectacular mountain setting, winding river, open fields and unique vibe and character, there is simply nothing else quite like it!
Tickets are available at Computicket and include camping for the entire four-night, five-day festival. For more information, visit www.splashyfen.co.za or contact 031 563 0824.
