In honour of this month’s STA Travel Sounds artist @Jeremyloops hailing all the way from Cape Town, here are some of the best music festivals South Africa has to offer:

1.Rocking the Daisies

Where? Cloof Wine Estate, Darling
When? 6 – 9 October
Why? Don your daisy chains and get ready for a MASSIVE party with an equally MASSIVE line up. Cape Town’s biggest festival, full of colourful tents, bohemian hippies, fancy dress and party spirit. Last year’s line-up included The Cat Empire, The Kooks, Milky Chance and our favourite Jeremy Loops. Peace & Love.

2.AfrikaBurn

Where? Stonehenge Farm, Tankwa Karoo National Park
When? 25 April – 1 May
Why? South Africa’s annual burn spanning 7 days. The citizens of Tankwa Town in the Karoo come together to create art, burning structures, music and performance. This year’s theme is X. The Roman numeral for ten. Celebrating a decade of AfrikaBurn. So get creative, feel the burn and enjoy the spectacle that is Afrikaburn. Beats your local bonfire day.

Where? Marks Park, Johannesburg
When? 16 April 10:00-21:00
Why? An urban music and lifestyle festival, focusing on quality South African and international music talent. The event spans over one day with three stages and gourmet food vendors from local farmers markets. Cold beer and gourmet burger in hand, it’s the perfect day out! This year’s line-up includes Jasmine Thompson, Mi Casa, James Hersey and again Jeremy Loops (popular this year!)

6.Synergy Live

Where? Theewaterskloof Municipality (1 hour outside of Cape Town)
When? 27 -29 Nov
Why? They promise you the time of your life. Get your arms up in the air, soak up the sun on the banks of the dam and dance the night away under the stars. A multi-stage festival with a Barcadi beach bar and a comedy stage for when you’ve had one too many Barcardis (remember laughter is the best medicine). It’s one hell of a party.

  1. 1. While there are elements of the democratic form of governance within the framework of our government, the US is NOT a deo2yracc.m. There are already those with narrow self serving desires attempting to influence the minds of the voters; they are commonly called politicians, political action committees, unions, etc. So the message from a corporation running a campaign message is just one more in a sea of hundreds if not thousands.

  3. Howdy! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog.
    Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out
    pretty fast. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start.
    Do you have any ideas or suggestions? With thanks
