Mango Groove has been announced as the headline act for Jägermeister presents Up the Creek 2018, which will take place at the Breede River in Swellendam on 25-28 January 2018.
The Up The Creek festival has been hosted at Up The Creek River Camp since 1990. It offers live music from various musical genres across a number of stages, including the Savanna River Stage at the water’s edge.
Claire Johnston of Mango Groove says: “We are really excited about this one - Mango Groove has never performed at Up The Creek before. It is one of those very special events on the SA live show calendar that every musician and band wants to be a part of…and in 2018 it happens for us. We are planning a total Mango Madness onslaught in this amazing part of South Africa. The band is having more fun than ever before and we can’t wait to see you there.”
The rest of the line-up, so far, includes: Spoegwolf, MT Seas, Aidan Martin, Sunset Sweatshop, Mobbing Bali, Westcoast Wolves, Sublime Tribute Project, Jackal & The Wind, Native Young, Southern Wild, Jerry & The Bandits, Sol Gems, Boulevard Blues, We Are Charlie, Veranda Panda, The Kiffness, Jak Skandi, Bongeziwe Mabandla, Crimson House, and Nomadic Orchestra. More acts are to be announced at the end of November.
Jeffrey the Jam Van is set to entertain the crowd before the Jägermeister Main Stage kicks off and the Sedgwicks’ Old Brown Food Court stage will be running in the mornings and afternoons to showcase new and upcoming artists.
Savanna Premium Cider will be supporting live comedy, fresh local acts, as well as draught cider on tap at the main bar, DJs on the late night stage, giveaways throughout the weekend, and more. While the festival is one of the few remaining that still allows you to camp next to your car (should you choose) there is also a greener campsite where no cars are allowed or you can book pre-pitched tented accommodation.
In an effort to go cashless, Up the Creek will be introducing Howler Loaded. After the festival ticket has been purchased, attendees may set up and preload their Howler account with festival money.
