Kirkwood Wildsfees entrance fees kept caged

2018-04-26 06:01

ENTRANCE fees at the annual SPAR Kirkwood Wildsfees have not been allowed to run wild, and will be the same as last year – despite a bigger and better programme, says festival director Jenni Honsbein.

The festival will take place from Friday, June 29 until Sunday, July 1.

Included in the entrance fee is all the live entertainment by South Africa’s favourite musicians on the giant Wildsfees stage, supervised entertainment for kids in a special child-friendly festival-within-a-festival and a full day’s demonstrations, Walking on the Wildside and other activities.

“We are the only festival in South Africa with its own special kids’ festival, where the youngsters are free to go wild (under supervision) while the rest of the family enjoys the shopping and entertainment,” says Honsbein.

Santa’s Secret Winter Workshop entrance fee is R10 for both the young and the young at heart. This includes a free cupcake and a gingerbread man.

The young and young at heart can also meet and have their photos taken with some of their favourite TV characters. Free entertainment will be presented in four separate stages – the giant main stage, the Flavourfontein Beach Bar, the Coca-Cola Stage and the kykNET Leefstyl Plein stage.

There will be more artists than ever on the main stage in 2018. Included in the galaxy of stars will be ten artists on stage on Friday, 15 on Saturday and eight on Sunday.

Adult tickets cost R150 per day for Friday, Saturday and Sunday. A weekend pass will be R350. For festival goers aged between 7-17 tickets cost R70 per day for Friday, Saturday and Sunday and R150 for a weekend pass.

  • Tickets are available from: Mafuta Padstal in Kirkwood, Westway Café in Cape Road, Port Elizabeth, and BZN Stationers in Uitenhage.
