Splashy Fen named one of five top events for April 2017

Underberg - Global credit card brand American Express has named Splashy Fen as one of the top five events to attend in April this year.

Alongside heavyweight global events such as Kings Day in Amsterdam, the Sydney Comedy Festival in Australia, Baisakhi in India and the Toronto Food and Drink Festival in Canada, this accolade is seen as a reward for the encouraging turnaround that the festival has received since The Splashy Fen Revival took place last year.

American Express Essentials hosts a popular website that presents a selection of the most original travel and lifestyle trends from around the world.

“We are thrilled to be associated with these world-class events” says Stu Berry, Festival Director.

“But more than that, we are proud of what we have achieved in such a short space of time. And we most certainly will not stop here. Our aim is to make each festival bigger and better than the one before; bringing more of the music fans love, more of the entertainment they crave and more of the joy that comes from being out in the beautiful Drakensberg with family and friends.”

In addition, the article asks readers which of the 5 events mentioned make them want to drop everything and pack their bags. 89% of readers voted Splashy Fen.

The 2017 Splashy Fen Music Festival is set to wow fans this Easter from the 13th to the 16th of April, with over 200 local and international artists, more than 50 food and craft stalls, morning yoga sessions, trail runs, live art and more.

The full festival line-up, venue map, accommodation options and tickets are all available at www.splashyfen.co.za.
