Splashy 2016

Splashy 2016 jazzes things up with cool camping options.

Underberg – With the iconic Splashy Fen music festival around the corner, fans of the four day festival in the foothills of the Southern Drakensberg have warmly welcomed the unique, new camping options that have been announced by the organisers.

Glamping at Splashy Fen

Why not go glamping at Splashy this year?

Research shows an increased interest in booking camping options available on site by fans who appear opposed to packing their own camping gear for the long weekend. Revellers are snapping up the brand new Splashy TeePee purchase offer; a funky two man tent that comes inclusive of an air mattress, two sleeping bags, a solar lantern, and a private toilet section, in a fenced off area with added security, available for only R2600 (ex VAT) for two people. The organisers have added a further incentive when you purchase the Splashy TeePee offer in which you get to take it all home with you after the festival.

“Glamping” has become a ever-popular fad and Splashy fans seeking something a bit more comfortable can look to the popular Harambee Tent. For R4250, two happy campers will enjoy accommodation in an A-Frame tent for four nights, complete with a real bed, bedding, bedside table and lamp, power points and a hot breakfast each morning with hot showers and VIP toilet area.
Fans can book either of these options by calling 082 745 9540 or emailing bookings@harambeehotel.com

The announcement of a dedicated Jazz line-up in the Rainbow Rhythm Sunday set in conjunction with Rainbow Restaurant highlights a significant development in the rebirth of the Splashy Fen Music Festival.
“Jazz is a key part of Splashy Fen and will continue to be in years to come,” says Stu Berry, Festival Director. “To welcome Jazz legends such as Oliver Mtukudzi and Louis Mhlanga to the Splashy Fen stage, shows that we’re serious about staging a cross section of the best music in South Africa”.

In addition, fans can get excited about a foot-stomping line-up to take place at the popular Electric Boma showcasing South Africa’s top Electronic Dance Music artists. Positioned in the fallen forest area on Splashy Fen Farm, the Boma is strategically situated away from the main campsites.
Splashy has teamed up with Uber Cool Events to host a 3 day line-up of acts that include HAEZER, NISKERONE, Pop Art Live, Veranda Panda, Ivan Turanjanin, Night Vision and more than 23 supporting acts.
