It is almost time for the annual Jägermeister presents Up the Creek, one of the most fabulous festivals for music lovers in the Western Cape.

Grab your bling bikini, funky lilo and party buddies and head on over to the Breede River– your ultimate music getaway weekend awaits!

An exciting change for the 2019 festival will be the addition of a late-night rock `n roll stage. Operating from the Gordon’s Gin Food Court stage, this rocking space will come alive Friday and Saturday after the Jägermeister Main Stage finishes and will offer live music enthusiasts something great to dig into if they don’t fancy what’s happening on the Savanna Late Night Stage. This stage will be graced by some supercool rock acts and collaborative mystery bands led by stalwarts in the industry: think Andre Kriel, Gareth Wilson, Jaco Mans and Greg Georgiades to give you an idea of why this is going to be one of those ‘dude-don’t-miss-out’ party spots at the festival. This stage will then be closed on Friday by The Robfather, and Saturday by Up the Creek`s very own, infamous DJ Dirtroad. Considering requests and feedback, The Food Court will now also have a fully operational bar open all day and night.
