WHAT TO EXPECT FROM THE FESTIVAL AND ITS LINE-UP: 

Expect a fun filled family day with great music and amazing people. The line-up of great, diverse musicians promises a bit of everything: rock, hip hop, afro- funk, pop, traditional and electronic. This year Off the Grid will start with The Cape Philharmonic Youth Wind Ensemble. This vibrant young act of musicians will be blowing you away with a mix of the classic and contemporary music.

That act will be followed by Bootleggers Blues, and then by The Steezies, voted one of the top upcoming bands of all festivals, will be up next with an Afro funk energy train that blends western music, African harmonies and hip hop in an explosive live performance with fabulous outfits.

Next up: Stone Jets onto the stage, a band that is quickly gaining momentum in the South African music scene with their fresh, unique brand of Afro Pop-rock and acoustic soul. Radio Kalahari Orkes, led by well- known Ian Roberts, has toured the length and breadth of our land and no town they have visited will ever be the same again.

All to be topped with The Kiffness, a live electronic act who needs no introduction in the music business. 

Gates open at 15:00 with the DJ Jake Wildheart, back after popular demand, he will also keep all on their feet when line-up done, rocking under the stars.
