Cape Town – It’s almost time to escape for the weekend and relax next to the Breede River at this year’s River Republic Festival.

What’s it all about?

River Republic is a festival brought to you by the same team that brings you Up the Creek every year. Same river, different venue. Beautiful green grass, tall trees and a stage next to the water. Meet new people, make friends for life, and for a while forget your city strife.

The festival will be taking place from 2 – 4 December 2016 at Round The Bend Camp, Breede River, Swellendam.

Check out these 5 reasons why you need to spend the weekend at River Republic:

1. Sipping our tequila sunrise cocktails on a lilo in the river…are another 4 reasons really necessary?

2. A great mix of music genres to enjoy.

3. The size of this boutique style event means you won’t be crowded or have to queue.

4. Lie in your tent as the sun rises and hear the Breede River rushing past.

5. Psst. You can bring your kids along if Granny isn’t available to babysit.
