One river, three stages, four days, comedy and festival goers rocking out to South Africa`s best tunes – it’s all going down at Up the Creek 2013 brought to you by 4th Street.
At Up the Creek, everyone comes together. The usually quiet campsite close to Swellendam will once again be transformed into a slightly surreal spot of revelry with raging rock and soulful tunes, performances from another planet and shenanigans alongside the mighty Breede River for four days. It doesn’t have any VIP nonsense and steers clear from cliques and pretence. Anticipate a beautiful river, three epic stages, 30 awesome live bands and some of our country’s coolest comedy acts.
On January 31, check out a chilled preview gig at the Rolling Stone SA stage. The line-up for Up the Creek 2013 is going to be nothing short of fantastic and will be announced in November. In typical Up the Creek tradition, organisers will be running live music on three stages throughout the weekend… The 4th Street Main Stage, the MK River Stage and the all night long Rolling Stone SA stage is set to blow your socks off. But remember, organisers will be running only one stage at a time, so that you don’t miss out on your favourite acts. Think about it, where else can you float on a river, headbang to sick, rocking tunes and sip on a Titanic. (Up the Creek`s special signature cocktail)?
If you want to rock out in a little more comfort, then the Heartbreak Motel is for you. There are various options of pre-pitched tents, hot showers, clean toilets, buffet breakfast and other luxuries. Tickets are available at ticketbreak.
The event will run from January 31 to February 3.
