WELCOME TO UP THE CREEK
It doesn't matter whether you're a staunch oke, a trance tripper, a hip hipster or a hip hop head.
At Up The Creek everyone comes together.
No VIP nonsense. No pretence. No cliques.
Just a beautiful river. Three epic stages. Thirty awesome live bands and our country’s coolest comedy acts.
So don't make plans between the 31st of January and the 3rd of February because you'll be setting up camp just outside of Swellendam for three days and three nights of happy, happening madness.
You will rock, you will laugh, you will sing and yes, you will get wet. And a little crazy.
Okay a lot crazy.
Think of it as Woodstock. Just wetter.
It’s one stage at a time too so you don’t have to miss out on anything.
This thing isn't just Called Up The Creek because you’re laming in the Breede River.
There have been incidents of Ballerina flash mobs, celebrity weddings, gentlemen parading around with flaming newspapers in their rears, lobster lilos and countless other insane shenanigans.
And that's just the things we're allowed to mention on this website.
Plus our sponsors; 4th Street, Rolling Stone and MK will be setting up a bunch of rad surprises for you too.
There’ll also be plenty of lekker eats, from snacks and spit-braais to all sorts of vegan delights as well as cocktails, gourmet coffee and cold-drinks.
Think about it, where else can you float in a warm river, head-bang to sick soulful, rocking tunes and sip on a Titanic (3 Tots Vodka, Blue Curacao and Lemonade - Oh Yes).
So remember it doesn't matter if you have big biceps or skinny jeans, or an ironic moustache, or a non-ironic one, at Up the Creek you can be yourself. And get together.
And that counts for the acts too because at Up The Creek everyone parties together and hangs out.
See you there!
Okay, now for the responsible stuff.
Yes, it's going to be crazy. But not that kind of crazy.
There'll be security guys, lifeguards and repairman on call to keep the vibe running smoothly.
Plus there'll be hot showers and flush toilets.
