Up The Creek Music Festival (Swellendam)
Please Note: This event has already taken place. Please check our Current and Upcoming Events List for current events.
One river, three stages, loads of live music, comedy acts and festival goers with a passion for some of South Africa’s best music in common - get yourself ready for Up the Creek!
We will bring you the same of what worked last year and more: Food vendors offering delicious festival faire, coffee maestros, more stalls and bars throughout the festival. If you are travelling with kids, rest assured that they will be supervised and catered for with kiddie-friendly activities at the designated kid’s area, including a jumping castle. The festival ground is also kitted out with a medical tent with trained personnel, while lifeguards at the riverside will keep tans in check and of course their eyes wide open..
ANYTHING THAT FLOATS…
Lobster lilos, Indian canoes, floating bars and human tube chains are making a comeback! Following the splashing, singing, howling success of the Anything That Floats competition, we’ve decided to stir up in the refreshing water of the Breede river once again.
After spotting a jolly good pair of sailors floating down the river in a bathtub we might, however, have seen it all…or have we? Participants are encouraged to think outside of their beach gear boxes in order to stand a chance to win incredible prizes. At this stage, categories include anything from the best design and most floatable contraption to the most luxurious device on the Breede River.
