MORE than 40 of the country’s star artists, 360 specialist stalls and at least two of the Eastern Cape’s biggest expos will be at the 18th annual SPAR Kirkwood Wildsfees from Friday, June 28 to Sunday June 30.

Internationally-renowned star and judge on The Voice SA Lira will be one of the highlights of the Friday night line-up and Bok van Blerk will be making his debut Kirkwood Wildsfees appearance.

Also on the Adventure Province stage for the first time on Friday night will be local artists award-winning rapper Early B, and Rob & Ferdi.

Some of the other favourites to perform during the Wildsfees include Elandré Schwartz, Liesel Pieters, Karlien van Jaarsveld, Nicholis Louw , Jo Black, Deon Groot, Wicus van der Merwe, South Africa’s top female rock band Saarkie, Brendan Peyper, Juanita du Plessis, Ghapi (aka the singer with the bigger than life personality and hairdo), Jan Bloukaas and all-time favourite Robbie Wessels.

For the first time in the Eastern Cape festival goers will experience Monster Energy’s “Flight Night” which features top local and international daredevil freestyle motocross riders in an explosion of exhausts, light, sound and fireworks.

There will be two other stages where festival goers can sit back and relax and listen to local artists and these stages will be the Flavourfontein stage and on the kykNET Leefstyl plein stage.

Other entertainment in the weekend programme includes performances in the Vodacom Pavilion by Friesian horses, anti-poaching exercise demonstrations by the Addo Elephant National Park Ranger Corps and the police K9 unit, and a Boerboel dog show, the annual Koedoedrolverspoeg competition and for the first time a Wildsfees Langvoet Challenge where there will be a battle of the sexes (in the nicest possible way).

In addition to the music and expos festival goers can enjoy wine tasting, gourmet taste sensations, shop at over 350 specially selected stalls and kuier at the ATKV en Die Burger Koek op die Stoep FeesKafee.
