The Dam Rock Festival

A Dam Good Rock Festival

The Dam Rock Festival is the first and only floating music festival and will take place on the banks of the dam at the Emanzini Resort in the small town of Vrede.

This stunning, intimate event is only a 2-hour drive from Johannesburg or a 4.5 hour drive from Bloemfontein or Durban, and is guaranteed to give you a unique experience with an adult "Summer Camp” vibe! The festival has over 30 artists performing on 2 main stages over 4 days with music for everyone from Techno, House, Ska, Electronic or Trance to Reggae, Blues, Indie, Rock, Funk, Punk and Folk!

There will be on-site camping available for all attendees - your ticket includes your campsite! Access is granted to the festival grounds and campsite from 2pm on the first day. The camp site is first come first served, so be sure to make it there early to claim your spot! Parking is not permitted inside the campsite, however, there is parking near the entrance that is secure. There is no electricity or hook-ups so bring a portable charger! There will be no open fires, gas burners or cookers allowed, however, there is a communal braai area for campers so bring your own wood or buy some that will be on sale there. 4 ablution blocks with hot water showers and flushing toilets are on the grounds as well as 24-hour security giving you peace of mind!

Remember to bring along your printed or digital festival ticket with your ID, a Lilo or Tube, your tent and your bedding, solar camping lights and most importantly a great vibe! Come together as one to celebrate summer, the water, music, and good vibes!
