Back by popular demand, the stage will be set for some of the biggest performing acts in the country to provide the mood while you sip on the finest wines from the Riebeek Valley.

The festival is happening on 4 and 5 May 2019 and the stage will be hosted at Riebeek Cellars Wine Co.

The festival will be headlined by Francois Van Coke of Van Coke Kartel and Fokofpolisiekar. He will be supported by artists such as the Alt Acoustic Jesse Jordan Band, feel-good rock/reggae/folk band Sunset Sweatshop, the story-telling Afrikaans band Soetmelk, the eclectic Jake Gunn, Willim Welsyn’s folky sunshine pop and Francois Haasbroek’s rock cover versions, among others.
