The Otterlake Easter Festival is a four day music extravaganza of note. Started in 2013, in collaboration with STRAB, Moonshine Productions, Otterlake German Restaurant, FORR, Moonprint & Unite Against Poaching. Not only will you enjoy an experience of a lifetime; you’ll be contributing towards a very worthy cause, protecting our country’s Rhinos. You can be part of the elite, showing a middle finger to those darn poachers! The second annual edition of Otterlake Easter Festival will be held from the 17th to the 20th of April at Plot 26 in Kameeldrift East (near Roodeplaat dam). The venue is hidden away from the hussle and bussle of city – life, city traffic having been left behind, forgotten and out of earshot. Those that were there will tell you that it was one for the books, a magical ‘Rock for Conservation’ weekend in serene bush-veld surroundings, listening to live music. Mobile bars will be spread around the music and the restaurant areas for festival goers’ convenience. Camping facilities with toilets & hot showers available for the entire weekend and there will also be firewood and ice for sale at the festival grounds. The festival also has “kiddie friendly” jumping castles and a pool to cool off in. And here’s a new addition to a festival, you can try to catch some fish in the river, so start making some pap and mielies for some aquatic adventures! You will also be able to watch The Black Cat Bones, The Fake Leather Blues Band, Bittereinder, The Emile Swiegers Band, Naming James, Piet Botha, Jack Hammer, Tidal Waves, The Smoking Mojos, The Slashdogs, Wolfgang Marrow, Hoot ‘n Anny, Bright Lights Big City, Lord Wolmer, Juggernaught, Jack Stone, Shotgun Tori, the Stray Natives, Johnny & The Bomb, Banda, The Jonathan Peyper Trio, Die See, Andra, Janice & The Halfjacks and Crystal Park. Tickets for the whole weekend will only set you back a mere R350 and day passes a minimal R100. For more info regarding the event, follow this link to Otterlake’s site. And don’t forget to check out Braaiboy at the festival, it’s his ‘birthday’ and he will be more than happy to accept a few complimentary tequilas and cigars. Don’t miss out on Otterlake Easter Fest!
