One thing is clear: fans are in for a musical treat.

Since its inception in 1990, Splashy Fen Music Festival has offered festivalgoers the best selection of music from a range of local and diverse South African artists, as well as a curated selection of international acts, who travel from far and wide to perform at the unforgettable foothills of the Drakensberg mountains. While the festival’s early focus was folk and light rock, today sees the inclusion of African music styles, light rock, pop, and electro – offering something special for every single fan.

The festival has confirmed its first 7 acts who will perform on the Main Stage over the Easter long weekend, and festival organiser Stu Berry believes it is a line-up not to be missed. “We’ll be bringing back some of the firm favourites again this year,” says Berry. “Artists who brought the magic at last year’s festival and made a great impression on the fans. We’ll also be seeing favourites like South Africa’s very own Parlotones, who fans would not have heard from in a long time! We like to mix up the music offering, making sure everyone enjoys every moment of the festival.”

The main stage line-up mixes current South African favourites like the eclectic Hot Water, Rubber DUC, Tanner Wareham, and a special performance by The Parlotones. The festival will also host 6 international acts to complement the selection of top South Africa’s acts. These include The Dreggs from Australia, Casey Lowry from the United Kingdom, and 4 more acts that will be announced over the next ten days. Already, we’re excited for Zimbabwe’s Black Mamba Man, Jozi’s 4am, and Durban’s Veranda Panda… to name a few.

About Splashy Fen

Splashy Fen is South Africa’s longest-running and oldest music festival. It is so much more than just a music festival; it is a festival that celebrates life, art, music, people, love, laughter, fun, and enjoyment, all within a world heritage site (the Drakensberg). _ The festival started in 1990 after a night of red wine around a fire when Peter Ferraz and Bart Fokkens decided that the farm Splashy Fen was the perfect location for a music gathering. Expecting only a hundred or so fans, the inaugural festival attracted some 400 musicians and festival goers, and by 1995, it had become the biggest music festival in the country.
Over the years, Splashy has welcomed more than 150,000 people through its gates and provided a platform which has seen music careers blossom across our promised land. It is so much more than a festival... and is rightly dubbed “SA’s Friendliest Music Festival.”
In recent years, the festival has experienced a significant revival and is now attracting fans from across the continent and globally to a festival site that is largely considered the most beautiful in South Africa.
