Cape Town - Renowned for the organising of Up The Creek, one of the Western Cape's most loved music festivals, the Red Hot Events team also introduced a wild and wonderful new boutique-festival two years ago: Savanna presents River Republic. 

Set at the same river, on the plush lawns next to a beautiful creek, this new little festival embodies that pina-colada-hidden-paradise-kind-of-awesome-party that we all dream of. Take a break and escape to the River Republic for the coolest getaway party with your best friends and most loved local DJ's and bands. 

The festival is taking place from 24-26 November at Round the Bend Lodge, Breede River, Swellendam.

The line-up:

The Kiffness, Nomadic Orchestra, Ben Dey & the Concrete Lions, BRYNN, Brothers Remedy, Bam Bam Brown, Dave Knowles, Hans Zen, Jackal & The Wind, Jak Skandi, Koisan, Los Tacos, Lt. Fizzer, Manny Walters, Mobbing Bali, MT Seas, Roxton met Herki.

To keep the good times rolling, we are also bringing you some live comedy over the weekend: Anne Hirsch is your MC on Saturday and comedian Kagiso Mokagadi will be providing you with good laughs. 

On arrival you will be greeted with a free ice cold Savanna as you jump on the shuttle down to the festival. Just the thing to get your weekend started and well deserved after your drive!

Mexican madness hour:
When a band like Los Tacos comes along you just want to get your groove on. With a mix of Latina and Capetonian blood, their catchy Latin American tunes will shake up the river banks. Don your sombreros, sip on tequila flavoured Savanna Locos and hula, hula people, let’s party!

Music Experience deck sessions: 
Just like last year we’ll be hosting auditions for fresh talent at Music Experience (end September & October). From each session, we’ll choose two artists to perform on the deck at River Republic 2017. Email sune@redhotevents.co.za if you’d like to apply to audition.

Keep an eye on our social media pages for more acts to be announced in October.
