“With even the nights being warmish we expect record crowds for the evening entertainment, which will see many of the country’s top artists on the biggest stage in the Eastern Cape,” says Honsbein.
Headline acts include Snotkop and Dr Victor and the Rasta Rebels on Friday, Bok van Blerk and EDEN on Saturday, and Lianie May and Ray Dylan on Sunday afternoon.
