Cape Town – It’s almost time to chill next to a river while listening to some awesome music at this year’s River Republic 2017. 

Set at the same river as Up the Creek, 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. 

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

And to get everyone in the mood we cornered Indie rockers Ben Dey and the Concrete Lions, who will be performing at the festival, to ask them some river themed questions.

Check it out below:

What is your favourite river in SA and why?

The Breede River. What other river hosts two rocking music festivals.

What’s the one thing you’ll be taking with you to the river and why?

A pair of board shorts. The general etiquette is to swim with something on.

What’s the best tune to listen to while floating on a river?

The River-Bruce Springsteen. 

What’s your best memory that involves a river?

Playing Up the Creek 2016. Nothing beats playing music in nature on the banks of a river. Looking forward to reliving the experience this month at River Republic.

If you had to write a song about a river, what would you call it?

Water Road.
