Unplugged62 Festival in Swellendam Platteland, Wes-Kaap
Karoo Style Party
Annually, the Joubert-Tradauw Vineyard Farm, just outside Barrydale opens its doors to visitors that come from far and wide for an amazing weekend of food, wine and plenty of music. Organisers Red Hot Events promises a wide range of South African musicians throughout the weekend accompanied by true Klein Karoo hospitality.
A deli alfresco lunch is on offer with the ticket price and wine and all other market style tastings such as cheeses, olives, biltong, preserves and freshly baked goodies are available to ensure you get a real taste of the Klein Karoo.
2017 will see a few newcomers to the list of performers, the most talked about being Jack Parow, who will be adding to the already much anticipated sounds of jazz, rock and classical arrangements that are part of the weekend line-up. This year is looking to offer the best party the Karoo has ever seen!
New this year is a campsite only metres away from the main stage area. Rooftop trailers and camper-vans will be granted access to the site and campers are welcome to prepare their own food on gas skottles, but please be aware that fires are not permitted. If the idea of having to pitch a tent does not appeal, then Cherry Glamping will be there to help “Glamp” up your camping experience.
For those who do not care for camping in the slightest, alternative accommodation options are available, including the Heartbreak Motel Cadillac Tent which includes a 3m X 3m Dome tent with sealed PVC flooring, outside doormat, inside tent mat, two mattresses, two fitted sheets, two cover pillows, showers and toilets as well as your own private area close to the stage and cellar!
Come camp in style or just camp in a small tent, either way, come have fun and listen to great local music!
