Rock the River SA New Year’s Festival 2011/12
The year is speeding to an end and the party season is fast approaching – do you know how you will be spending New Year’s Eve 2011? How about heading out to a kick-ass outdoor music festival with your friends, away from the madness of the surging inner-city crowds?
Now in its third year, Rock The River SA Festival continues to provide an exciting alternative to conventional New Year’s Eve parties – allowing participants to enjoy live South African music in an intimate, safe and natural environment. The need for non-mainstream, small yet professionally-run events was first acknowledged in 2009 and since then Rock The River SA has grown to an annual New Year’s event.
This year’s Rock the River SA New Year’s Festival will take place from December 31st to January 2nd at the Cape Town Ostrich Ranch, located 20 minutes’ drive from Cape Town along the N7, towards the West Coast. The organisers will once again bring along a brand new state-of-the-art sound and lighting rig to provide three epic stages for the more than 100 acts expected to attend. This includes the Main Stage, the Electro/Dubstep/D&B stage and a third stage for Metal/Goth/Hard Rock and Punk.
At present, the confirmed acts for this year’s event include (subject to change): Fokofpolisiekar, Hog Hoggidy Hog, Reburn, Half Price, Peachy Keen, Stonecollar, The Modes (PE), Junkyard Lipstick, CY.STR, Jackal & Wolf, Thought Police, Witness to Wolves, Boombox Troopers, Cannon, Smugg Juggler, Woodstock Mafia, Signal Hill, Dustland Express, My Flawless Ending, Fingers in the Sky, a DJ line-up provided by RubaDub and Basscore, as well as the 420 Comedy Troop. More acts to be confirmed. You may view the rest of the line-up here.
