Facebook followers were given a chance to help the Wildsfees team to select the Saturday line-up.

“We had great feedback. The festival is clearly close to the heart of a large number of people from the Eastern Cape and beyond,” says festival director Jenni Honsbein.

Desmond Wells, Izak Davel and Nicholis Louw will be performing at the festival for the first time on Saturday, June 27.

Also making their Absa Kirkwood Wildsfees debut will be Manie Jackson, Jannie Moolman, Corlea Botha and Mi Casa.

Favourites Ray Dylan, Elizma Theron, Kurt Darren and Dr Victor and the Rasta Rebels are back by popular demand.

The whole family will be entertained and treated at the annual Absa Kirkwood Wildsfees on Sunday.

Festival goers can look forward to a line-up filled with local South African artists against the backdrop of the Rietberg Mountains and the aromas of fresh coffee, braai fires and koeksisters.

Gates will open at 9am and festinos can party late into the night.

Tickets are available at the gate, Mafuta Padstal in Kirkwood, BZN stationers in Uitenhage and Westway Café in Port Elizabeth.
