Jägermeister presents Up the Creek 7-10 February 2019.
More bands announced and other good news!
Less than two months to go to the annual Jägermeister presents Up the Creek, one of the coolest riverside getaways for music lovers in the Western Cape. Some more fantastic bands and DJ`s have been added to the already stellar line-up. Creekers, you will also see and party in front of the stages with: Hot Water, Sean Koch, Alfred Adrian (Comedian), Southern Gypsey Queen, Nick Hamman, Pedro and the SOULdiers, Warongx, Coelacanth and DJ inviZAble.
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 including Hellcats, Bed on Bricks, Willim Welsyn 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.
A reminder of who else has been announced to date, so that you can get the fabulous overall picture so far: The Black Cat Bones, Femi Koya, Grassy Spark, Gerald Clark and the boys from Prague, Stoker, Jackal and the Wind, Crosscurrent, Lo Ghost, Stone Jets, Koos Kombuis, BRYNN, Bam Bam Brown, Zengeance, Piet Botha, Greg Georgiades & Ultra Natives, The Steezies, Diamond Thug and Money for Bali.
