Posted on July 1, 2011 | FestivalsNo Comment


People in the Republic of South Africa truly love their music. This is the reason, a large share of the festivals of South Africa are base on music. The most widely celebrated ones among them are: Ardklop Art Festival, Arts Alive, Cape Town Jazz Festival, Joy of Jazz and Splashy Fen. In this article, we will get acquainted with The South African Festival of Splashy Fen.

Splashy Fen was first arranged in the year 1990. The first year of this festival hosted the celebrations amid an exceedingly humble setup. However, after 22 years of celebration, this festival has now become one of the biggest events on the festival map of South Africa. The event is held in a farm known as the Splashy farm, from where the name of the festival comes. If you are coming from another country of the world to take part in this festival, you will have to book a flight to Durban in the South African state of Kwa Zulu Natal. If you travel on wheels, you will need around 2 hours to reach the Splashy Fen farm.

Splashy Fen is celebrated annually during the Easter weekend. More than 70 top artists from different corners of the country gather here to entertain the guests. The music played during the Splashy Fen music festival mostly belongs to the ancient times; the form of music you will get to hear ranges between authentic folk tunes and light folk blended with a bit of rock.

Other than great musical experience, people visiting this part of the world during Splashy Fen will also get the opportunity of participating in a number of interesting outdoor activities. There will also be several food stalls and drink outlets serving cuisines of different origins.
