The festival, in partnership with the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality (NMBM), forms part of the annual gathering of South Africa’s single-fin longboard surfers at the Cobbles Classic.

Top artists such as Matthew Mole, Desmond and the Tutus, Farryl Purkiss, Charlie Finch, Too Many Chiefs, ZA’frotronixx and The Brothers, will be performing live at the festival which will take place within the pristine Cape Recife Nature Reserve.

“The Cape Recife Music Festival has been introduced as part of the natural growth of the Cobbles Classic and promises to be a fun-filled day for the whole family,” said event organiser Danie Brink.

The Cape Recife Music Festival will take place on Saturday between 12 noon and 8pm. Tickets at R125 per adult and R30 for children under 12 are available through
