This alternative pop group will bring together unique sounds of reggae, soul and blues on Saturday late afternoon.

Meet new people and make friends for life, and for a while forget your city strife. Escape to the River Republic. A place where time slows and feet are moved by the rhythm of the river and the movements of the sun.

Where people laugh and scream and dance and dream, and there’s no hate or sadness or horror or badness, just joy and electro, and light and delight.

Catch your most loved local musicians, both DJs and bands, and play chess on a dance floor quite chequered and grand.

Let the music keep playing with a shake and a shiver, and you’ll be ever so grateful you came to the river.

To launch the new festival, River Republic have had contra-vision vinyls printed for the back of car windscreens, and if you're the first in your suburb to claim your vinyl by emailing we'll give you a free ticket along with it!

Tickets: R850 for general camping.

Pre-pitched tents, chalets and self- catering units also available. Visit the website for more information and to book your ticket & accommodation option.
