Last year, the inaugural Liefde By Die Dam festival proved to be incredibly successful. So, it’s no surprise that the festival returns to Emmerentia Dam in 2017. Named after Valiant Swart’s chart-topping hit of the same name, Liefde By Die Dam is a showcase for the best in local talent – and this year, the line-up is fire!
Join the groundbreaking group Die Heuwels Fantasties, revered for their unique music and their energetic live performances. Joining Die Heuwels on the mainstage is iconic front man of legendary South African rock bands Fokofpolisiekar and Van Coke Kartel, Francois van Coke. Whilst lazing under the leafy trees of Emmarentia, the beloved Afrikaans voice of Laurika Rauch will serenade you, followed by Afrikaans darling Riana Nel. Crowd favourite SAMA nominee Majozi returns this year with his foot stomping, electro indie rock and adding to this stellar line-up is the inspirational Tresor, and South Africa’s own rap superstar, JR. To round off this unbelievable day of entertainment are newcomer Jo Black, whose debut album already reached gold status this year, and guitar virtuoso Loki Rothman.
What’s cool about this festival is that you can bring your own picnic and spread your blanket out for the perfect celebration of youth and music. However, a wide variety of artisanal food stalls will also be selling some yummy treats. The festival will also be collecting blankets for those in need which is an awesome initiative. The event promises to be exceptional. Tickets are on sale now.
