COVID restrictions have been lifted and events are back with a bang in a big way. But while there are a wide variety of music festivals, Bietjie Bos is unique in its offering as a new weekend away camping event. Leave your worries behind, grab your tent and GAAN BOS from 5 to 7 August! Set in the Limpopo bush, the location is beautiful with a stellar line-up that includes: Spoegwolf, Early B, Danny Smoke, Martin Bester, The Black Cat Bones, Riaan Benade, Straatligkinders, Valiant Swart, Van Pletzen, Bernice West, Zebraman, Saarkie, Akkedis and Die Melktert Kommissie.


Bietjie Bos, aptly named due to the location on Marakeli Farm in Limpopo is a wild weekend of SA’s best Afrikaans artists, camping and non-stop entertainment all weekend. The way a music festival should be!

Some of the best and most legendary SA Musicians will be sharing the stage. A favourite rocker over decades, Valiant Swart, says: “I am very excited to be playing at the Bietjie Bos Festival. It's high time! It's been a while since I have been in the sunny Thabazimbi veld. I've always had great times there! Aside from the outdoors festival vibe, I am also really looking forward to seeing the other cool bands on the line-up – and to be rocking like the bad old days with electric guitars, drums and ice-cold beer!”

The Black Cat Bones

Peach van Pletzen says that fans can expect a massive show, with fabulous techno glam: “In the bushveld, we can let loose!. And it will be big and loud! We are looking forward to it!”

Bouwer Bosch from Straatligkinders rounds it up perfectly: “It's always great to be in the bushveld and to do a show in the open air, where you are not just performing songs, but doing so under the stars. This is where nature and music meet – and ain't it just two of the most beautiful things in the world. We can't wait! Festivalgoers can expect some of our classic tunes, as well as some funky covers.”Valiant Swart 2
