Share memories of Splashy

2009-01-02 00:00

ARE you a Splashy veteran with hundreds of memories from the past 20 years? If you are, the organisers of Splashy Fen Music Festival want to hear from you.

“We are looking for stories, photographs and video footage from the festival’s early years, and would also like to hear from any Splashy ‘veterans’ who’ve been to all (or many) of the previous festivals,” festival spokeswoman, Mandy Carlo, said.

All contributions are welcome and can be e-mailed to splashyfen@

This year’s festival plans are well under way and festival-goers who make the annual pilgrimage to Underberg from April 9 to April 13 can expect a special celebration to mark the 20th festival.

Over the years, Splashy Fen has evolved from a small get-together in the mountains into one of South Africa’s premier music festivals.

Although continuously adapting to changing trends, the festival has nevertheless managed to retain its unique character and appeal; that special “something” — the people, the vibe, the sense of family — that has allowed it to endure for nearly two decades.
