About the Splashy Fen Festival

Established in 1990, Splashy Fen is South Africa's longest-running annual music festival.  Every Easter this five-day event attracts thousands of people from around the country and abroad to a farm near Underberg in KwaZulu-Natal for what is regarded by many as the ultimate outdoor music experience.

This year's festival, the 26th since its inception, runs from 24th March to 27th March 2016 and once again promises a varied line-up of more than 80 of the hottest live music acts in the country, backed by top-class sound, lighting and stage production.  Also on offer are fun outdoor activities for the whole family, colourful arts and crafts, a wide variety of food and drink outlets, as well as various camping and accommodation options.

"With its stunning mountain vistas and unique vibe and character, there is simply nothing else in South Africa quite like Splashy Fen" says festival organiser Pedro Carlo of C-Weed Entertainment Promotions.  Preparations for next year's festival are already well underway and we'll be announcing a number of exciting new developments in the coming weeks, all geared towards making this one of the best Splashys yet!

Key Information

The ticket validation process has now been moved away from the side of the entrance dirt road to the Underberg Country Club. The Club is on the road through Underberg and does not require any detours. There is ample flat parking, a nice hall and a bar for people to get their tickets scanned. The Red Bull wings crew will also be on site to help with some much needed Red Bull. All you need is your valid ticket and barcode which will be scanned and validated – once validated you will be issued your access armband which will be your access to the site. At the gates to the festival, you will then have your armband checked and car searched for glass, otherwise entrance will be quick and easy. You do not need to bring your ID with to the festival.
