The 2012 Up the Creek festival will be held in conjunction with Bacardi and will feature three stages, with lots of music and comedy. It will be held from 2 to 5 February on the campsite close to Swellendam on the Breede River.
For R100 extra, Creekers can pull in on Thursday, 2 February for a preview gig at the Bar Stage. They can choose the best spot for their tents and kick-start the weekend's carousing so that the place is cooking by the time the rest of their friends arrive. The main festival weekend is from Friday, 3 to Sunday, 5 February.
There will be live music on three stages throughout the weekend: The Bacardi Main Stage, the MK River Stage and the all-night-long BOS Breede River Bar Stage.
The line-up for the weekend includes: Kongos, aKing, Akkedis, Black Cat Bones, Blues Broers, Cameron Bruce, City Bowl Mizers, Fox Comet, The Great Apes, Holiday Murray, Hot Water, Karen Zoid, Louwtjie Rothman, Machineri, No One's Arc, Piet Botha, Taxi Violence, Wrestlerish, Jeremy Loops, Luna Paige, Shadowclub, Sterling EQ, Andra, Peachy Keen, AC/DC Tribute, Southern Gypsey Queen.
This year Up the creek is hosting an international act. Kongos is a rock band of four brothers (Johnny, Jesse, Dylan and Danny Kongos)- sons of multi-million-seller South African singer-songwriter John Kongos. They grew up in London and South Africa and now write, record and perform in Phoenix, Arizona. Kongos released their debut album in 2007 and are currently promoting their second album "Lunatic" for Tokoloshe Records, an independent label they recently formed together with John Kongos
Prizes for floats
Lobster lilos, Indian canoes, floating bars and human tube chains are making a comeback in 2012. There will be prizes for a variety of creative floats this year. Participants are encouraged to think outside of their beach-gear boxes in order to stand a chance to win. At this stage, categories include anything from the best design and most floatable contraption to the most luxurious device on the Breede River.
There will be more food vendors to get you through the days in style, including coffee maestros that can deliver your caffeine to your tent-step, more stalls and more bars throughout the festival. Once again, there will be dedicated lifeguards to ensure maximum safety.
