Twenty-seven South African musicians will entertain visitors at the SPAR Kirkwood Wildsfees from June 28 to 30.
Most of the shows will take place on the Adventure Province Main Stage at Kirkwood High School.
Jo Black, an Afrikaans singer who won a SA Music Award for the best contemporary album (Skepe) last year, is one of the well-known artists performing on the opening day.
Festivalgoers will also be able to enjoy the soothing soul, funk and jazz sounds of Lira, an 11-time Sama-winning afro-soul vocalist.
Nicholis Louw and Bok van Blerk will set the dancefloor alight with their respective rock and pop songs while Early B, the versatile Afrikaans rapper from Port Elizabeth, will end off the day’s entertainment in the Lagerville Biertent.
Refentse, who grew up in Vereeniging, will take to the stage on the second day. The 21-year-old was discovered four years ago when he was playing guitar and singing on the pavement outside his family home.
He went on to win four Ghoema-trophies for his album My hart bly ‘n taal.
Afrikaans country singer Juanita du Plessis, who is known for the hit “Ska-Rumba”, will also get the feet tapping and hands clapping.
There may be a few renditions of the “Leeuloop” by festivalgoers while Robbie Wessels is on stage, while pop singer Jan Bloukaas will end off the night in the beer tent.
The final day will see Ray Dylan, whose breakthrough came with his album Hokaai Stoppie Lorrie in 2006, on stage.
Musical group Die Campbells, who received a Sama for best sokkie album Mamma Maria in 2010, will draw the curtain on this year’s SPAR Kirkwood Wildsfees.
