One river, three stages, more than 30 live music and comedy acts and 2000 festival goers with a passion for some of South Africa’s best music in common – get yourself ready for Up the Creek 2010.
The line up includes: The Dirty Skirts, The Rudimentals, Bed on Bricks, Flat Stanley, Dan Patlansky, Hot Water, The Black Cat Bones, Andra, Ryno Velvet, Dave Ferguson, Piet Botha, Akkedis, Ashtray Electric, Van Coke Kartel, Taxi Violence, The Pretty Blue Guns, Taxi Violence, Mr Cat and The Jackal, Willem Welsyn and the Sunrise Toffies, the Plastics, Fox Comet, an AC/DC Tribute slot and the debut performance of The Gods, with Albert Frost, Schalk van der Merwe on bass, Parri Luckhoff on vocals and Francois Kruger on drums.
Creekers can look forward to the return of Corné and Twakkie, together with a selection of some seriously funny comedians, including Dave Levinson. In typical Up the Creek tradition we will be running the main stage, the river stage and the all-night-long Breede River bar stage once again.
For the die-hard Creekers, we are putting on a show at the bar stage on the Thursday night. You can claim the best camping spot and enjoy an extra day Up the Creek. Watch the website for the Thursday night line-up.
In 2010, we will bring you the same of what worked last year and more: More food vendors to get you through the days in style, including coffee maestros that can deliver your caffeine to your tent-step, more stalls and more bars throughout the festival. Once again, there will be an area with committed staff to look after the kiddies, as well as dedicated life-guards to look after the young at heart at the river.
We are also revamping the loo’s and have already started watering the campsite for a nice green touch. But if this still does not get you excited about the idea of pitching a tent, simply pitch up, and rent one of our pre-pitched tents.
