A Secret Line-up of Live Music, Poetry, Comedy and Dance In Muizenberg Homes
Hidden venues, surprise performers and fortuitous amount of complimentary drinks at the inaugural Muizenberg Village Vibes event
Based on the village of Darling’s Voorkamerfest (Voorkamerfees) concept, Village Vibes on the evenings of 12 and 13 April 2019, is a first-of-a-kind event for Muizenberg. The Voorkamerfest carries an element of excitement for the audience as the venues and performers remain a surprise until you arrive. June Homan, former Darling local and now the owner of Joon restaurant in Muizenberg, is responsible for bringing the concept to Muizenberg.

- Official After-the-after party-party at The Striped Horse Muizenberg with DJs until 2am + complimentary drink to ticket holders on arrival
If you’d like to try your hand at guessing who the other performers are going to be, for some clues, head to the website.
Meet at Joon Restaurant for the before-party and enjoy your complimentary welcome wine on arrival. Gear up for the evening by pre-ordering a snack platter such as cheese platter, mini slider platter or vegan meze platter for R70 to R95.
You can order snack platters on the night too, but that'll be on a 'first come, first served' basis. Alternatively, opt for their delicious pizzas (it’s a good idea to place your order early for pizza).
Thin-crust butternut, caramelised onion, feta and rocket pizza or bacon, avo, feta and garlic or artichoke, mushroom and feta? Yes, please!
