Lush Festival will be taking place from 24 to 27 March 2016 over the Easter Weekend.


There is also a special Plus Camping area at an additional cost of R600 per ticket and limited to only 350 people.

The private area will allow for spacious camping and is alongside a small stream with points of shade under the willow trees. It is well positioned alongside the Harambee Hotel and will be close enough to be convenient but far enough to be more peaceful, and will have its own toilets and showers.

The festival also hosts a glam camping section hosted by Harambee Hotel. Each luxury hotel style tent sleeps 2 with single or double bed options, lights, power points for charging phones and includes a few extra creature comforts including a restaurant catering for Breakfast (included in the price).


Activities available to Lush participants will include an official trail run and fun run, a three day Mountain biking tour event, and guests can also take advantage of nature trails, abseiling, rafting, horseback riding, hiking, hot air ballooning, and much more on offer in the area.

Lush Festival is the perfect long weekend getaway that has everything to offer. Make Lush Festival in Clarens your destination for the most idyllic Easter Weekend breakaway.
