Three thousand eager fans can celebrate, as the promise of another beautiful Splashy Fen music festival has been confirmed by event organisers, Impi Concept Events.
Easter 2022 is set to be one to remember as the Splashy Fen Farm in Underberg, KZN will again be transformed into a magical music festival for those who have been missing out not only on the festival’s traditional music, arts, crafts and lifestyle festivities, but a sense of freedom and normality and the chance for a good old knees-up in the mountains.
Tell your friends, gather your families, mark your calendars and get ready to secure your limited #splashy2022 ticket to what will quite possibly be the best, most anticipated, emotional Splashy Fen Music Festival ever. The festival will take place over the traditional Easter weekend from Thursday, April 14 to Monday, April 18 2022, and tickets, limited to 3000, are now open for sale.
All ticket holders from the cancelled 2020 festival will have first dibs on purchasing tickets for next year’s event. These 2020 “ticket holders” will be sent an exclusive clickable link via email, which gives them access to buy the same number of tickets as they had in 2020 at the discounted Otter Club ticket price. There will be a two-week period in which to purchase these discounted tickets, thereafter, general and normal-priced ticket sales will open to the public.
Those who became a #splashyhero back in 2020 when they donated a portion of their 2020 ticket to the festival, will be eligible for the promised 20% discount – which will be applied to the Otter Club ticket price.
“It seems like a lifetime ago when we made the announcement to cancel our 2020 edition festival,” says Stu Berry, festival director. “Collectively, with our fans, we were devastated, but the choice was not ours to make. None of us had any idea just what we were up against.
“For months we have waited patiently for the green light from authorities and for the infection rate to drop. We have also watched, longingly, as international festivals have taken the lead with a number of entry regulations that allow hundreds of thousands of fans to return to packed stadiums to enjoy live music and entertainment again – something that we are determined to be able to offer to both our SA fans and musicians; as we continue to champion the local entertainment industry that has been hit so hard with the shutdown of events and festivals.”
The Splashy Fen website – www.splashyfen.co.za – has been updated with all the important information that fans need to navigate the latest ticket options (also see price options in this post below). Organisers have done everything they can to ensure no risk to ticket holders, and fans are guaranteed a 100% refund on their ticket, should the festival be cancelled due to Covid-19 lockdown regulations. At this stage, no day visitors will be allowed to the 2022 festival.
“We are sure our fans will have many questions regarding the 2022 festival,” says festival creative director Andrew van Rensburg. “Our website should be able to address all of these queries, including what we envisage will be the Covid regulations at Splashy Fen 2022. It has been great watching the European festival season operating with full capacity crowds and we cannot wait to get back out there and deliver a world-class experience once again. We need it!”
