The 20th big Splash!


Preparations for the 20th Splashy Fen Music Festival taking place this year are already well underway and festival-goers making the annual pilgrimage to Underberg in KwaZulu-Natal can expect a special celebration to mark this major milestone in the festival’s history.

Over the years, Splashy Fen has evolved from a small gathering of hippies in the mountains into one of South Africa’s premier festivals, widely recognised for its contribution to promoting local music by providing a platform for close to 1 500 artists and has even helped kick-start many successful music careers.

Happening over the Easter weekend from 9-13 April, Splashy Fen 2009 will once again offer a diverse four-day programme of top and up-and-coming live acts, including featured performances by a number of Splashy legends.

A limited number of discounted tickets are now on sale at selected Game stores for R400. If you miss out on this promotional offer, then tickets are also available at Computicket (R450) and at the festival gate (R500). Children under 12 pay R50 – tickets at the gate only. The price includes camping for the entire long weekend.

If you haven’t been to a Splashy yet it really is a great experience. If you have, the organisers are looking for stories, photographs and video footage from Splashy Fen’s early years, and would also like to hear from any Splashy veterans who’ve been to all (or many) of the previous festivals.

All contributions are welcome and can be emailed to splashyfen@gmail.com. Here are some of my videos from last year’s festival (produced for the Natal Witness). Enjoy!
