For those who love a festival like up the creek – this one’s for YOU!
The Kiffness; Grassy Spark; Jackal & The Wind; Kings Down South; Hugo.Hugh; Private Life; Stone Age Citizens; The Vanilla; The Liminals; Toby2Shoes and more to be announced soon!
Where lilo meets river and electro meets rock, pop, swing and folk; where a grassy dance floor meets a bar, and a floating stage reveals a glimmer… of a hidden paradise.
Calling all facial-hair-bearing hipsters, jaunty jocks, burlesque beauties, fancy freelancers, busy business people, or anyone else who loves some fun: It’s time to run away to the river for one weekend of beats, mayhem, mischief and magic.
Escape to the River Republic. A place where time slows and feet are moved by the rhythm of the river and the movements of the sun. Where people laugh and scream and dance and dream, and there’s no hate or sadness or horror or badness, just joy and electro, and light and delight. Catch your most loved local musicians, both DJs and bands, and play chess on a dance floor quite chequered and grand.
Meet new people and make friends for life, and for a while forget your city strife. Let the music keep playing with a shake and a shiver, and you’ll be ever so grateful you came to the river.
River Republic is brought to you by Red Hot Events, the same team that bring you UP THE CREEK every year. Annie Sowden, owner of Red Hot Events explains “we have taken our experience to create something new not only for punters but also for our team. Our philosophy is to have fun and to constantly reinvent ourselves. After all, variety is the spice of life. Round the Bend, a space with rolling green lawns along the river banks, is arguably one of the most fun places on the planet to organise a party. With only 1500 spaces available, we cannot think of anything nicer than 3 days of cool music vibes with our fellow republicans!”
Tickets: R850 for general camping. Pre- pitched tents, chalets and self- catering units also available. Visit the website www.riverrepublic.co.za for more information and to book your package.
