South Africa’s longest-running music festival will take place over the traditional Easter weekend from Thursday the 28th, to Monday, April 1st, 2024, and a stellar line-up of local and international musicians has been released to get fans even more excited for a long weekend of LIVE entertainment.

Thursday will kick off the festivities with a selection of musicians across the 4 unique stage areas. Fans can look forward to the sounds of Carol Souki, Mali Zulu, Qadasi & Maqhinga, and Jerry and the Bandits on the Sedgwicks Acoustic Stage; Tiaan Rivers, Menzi Mbonambi, and Tristan Cole Boltman on the magical Treehouse Stage. The Main Stage area will be quiet on Thursday, but only for those not wearing the Silent Disco headsets, blasting a selection of golden oldies and latest dance releases in the much-loved Silent Disco.

Across the next 4 days, fans will be spoiled with music across all genres and stages. From the beats of Matt Davies and Tim Lewis, to the gees of 4am, the power of Hot Water, and the stardom of American Authors. There is something for everyone at this year’s festival. Nordista Freeze from the UK to the Dreggs from down under, the Kickstands from Durban, Desmond and the Tutus from Pretoria, the Parlotones from somewhere in Europe, the American Authors, from, er, yeah, you guessed it... America, and our global favourites, the Ndlovu Youth Choir. To name just a handful. 

Radio personality Jane Linley Thomas is a Splashy Fen fan of note. This year, she’ll be joining the Splashy crew with her pop-up car boot party, from where she will interview musos, fans, organisers, foodies, crafters, and more.

And of course, as an Easter family destination, there is so much to do over the festival weekend. As a local Underberg resident, Andrew van Rensburg is the festival’s Creative Director and Site Creator. Van Rensburg spends most of his year tending to the Splashy Fen event space, making sure that when fans arrive on site there is hot water in the showers, the hip-high grass is cut, the roads are prepared and the entire site is fully functional and ready to welcome over 6 000 fans for 4 days of fun!  

“Join in an Easter service and egg hunt on Sunday,” says van Rensburg. “Try your hand at yoga on a SUP board in the icy but beautiful river, discover your new favourite cocktail at the Klipdrift Splashy Views, catch up with new friends over a cuppa and chocolate-stuffed-croissant in the Marley Coffee Village, feel like a VIP on our Splashy Balcony in the Main Stage area, charge your phone and chillax at the Peaceful Sleep Charging Station, get your festival hair done in the craft village, take the kids for a pony ride, enjoy a morning trail run, sleep in until late, dance around a bonfire under the stars, give belly dancing and drumming a go, buy and wear your Splashy merch with pride, and just get stuck into the magic of being out in the beautiful Underberg with music to listen to and friends to make memories with.”

Splashy Fen 2024 will take place over the traditional Easter weekend from the 28th of March to the 1st of April 6th when festival-goers will experience a long weekend in the picturesque setting of Underberg, enjoying the best Splashy Fen experience to date. Tickets are available at The festival is currently running a group special for 6 tickets, as well as an opportunity to buy a VIP ticket right up close near the main stage with a dedicated bar, ablution, and viewing deck. Check out The Balcony tickets online. Grab your friends and get ready for #splashy2024.
