CELEBRATING 30 YEARS OF SPLASHY FEN
Back in 1990, two local Underberg farmers decided to host an intimate weekend of music with a couple of friends from the area. Seven short months later,
over 1 200 enthusiasts from across South Africa arrived to enjoy a selection of live music set in the natural amphitheatre of the Splashy Fen Trout Farm in Underberg. That was the magical moment that Splashy Fen Music Festival was born!
Who would have ever imagined that 30 years on and Splashy Fen Music Festival would still be going strong; forging a name for itself across the globe as South Africa’s friendliest festival. 2019 sees the festival celebrate its 30th edition, and preparations are well under way for another magical musical experience for the whole family.

“It’s going to be a fun-filled anniversary for Splashy Fen, and we’re really excited to share it with our fans,” says Stu Berry, Festival Director. “After a successful sold out 2018 festival, we are already well into planning for our special 30th edition, to make sure that we offer all the great things that people have to come to know, with a few new highlights thrown in the mix.”
“Next year, something else to look forward to is the introduction of powered campsites.” says Festival Creative Director, Andrew Van Rensburg. “With the increasing number of families and caravans in attendance at the 2018 festival, we have now developed a campsite that offers 40 electrically powered sites. The site will cost R1500 for the full 4-day festival for a maximum of 4 people, and will have dedicated security and power. Fans can book these sites online when purchasing a festival ticket.”
