South Africa’s friendliest festival excites fans with more great acts

Underberg - Hot on the heels of the exciting news that Australian megastars The Temper Trap will be headlining at the iconic Splashy Fen Music Festival 2017, event organisers are eager to share the next batch of local and international artists who will be filling the rolling hills of Underberg with their sweet sounds over the Easter weekend next year.

The Splashy Fen 2017 Phase Two Acts include some of South Africa’s favourites: the hugely successful Parlotones, Shortstraw, Rubber DUC and Veranda Panda all add to an already exciting line-up.

In addition, a musical treat awaits Splashy Fenners next year as America’s Rodney Branigan – Splashy Fen’s second international artist - has confirmed his presence at the event and has included Splashy on his festival-to-do list.

Having toured the world several times, and supporting artists such as Jack Johnson, Billy Bragg and G-Love, Rodney proves he is top of his craft. Never failing to please an audience, Rodney’s musical magic includes performing with two guitars at once and a delightful song writing ability that will have the audience cheering for more.

Over 200 musicians will perform for fans across five unique stage areas throughout the iconic 4-day festival – with the new Treehouse stage set to add a whimsical element to the festivities.

Other acts include The Springbok Nude Girls, Jack Parow, December Streets, Desmond and the Tutus.

Splashy Fen 2017 will take place over the traditional Easter weekend from the 13th to the 16th of April. Tickets are available at www.splashyfen.co.za. Plus, if you buy 2 tickets between the 5th and 22nd of December, you can enjoy a discounted Christmas price of R700 per ticket. The perfect gift for a friend, a loved one, and yourself!
