This year’s Rock the River SA New Year’s Festival will take place at the Cape Town Ostrich Ranch, located 20 minutes’ drive from Cape Town along the N7 towards the West Coast. Which means you will be able to enjoy your New Year’s in a safe, natural environment, away from the bustle of the inner city, listening to awesome tunes amongst awesome people. True party animals can settle in on the 30th from 15h00 onwards for camping, enjoy a drink at the bar and participate in some fun festival activities before the party marathon kicks off on the 31st.

Even better news is that Fokofpolisiekar will be headlining this year’s Rock the River SA New Year’s festival. Currently one of SA’s most popular rock acts, Fokofpolisiekar has become known for their explosive live performances and raw on-stage energy. Fokofpolisiekar was named “Best Live Local Band” in the 2008 FHM Awards (March 2009 issue). Controversial and ever-questioning in their lyrics as well as their lifestyle, the band has generated much controversy in the South African media.
