The Jägermeister Up The Creek festival takes place between the 25th and the 28th of January 2018 at the Breede River in Swellendam and over the years, the festival has made a name for itself by bringing summer, good tunes and epic food together for the ultimate riverside adventure.

This year, you can see the following live at the festival: Mango Groove, Fokofpolisiekar, The Kiffness, Albert Frost, Nomadic Orchestra, Spoegwolf, Veranda Panda, Crimson House, Boulevard Blues, We are Charlie, Lucy Kruger, BRYNN, Slow Jack, MT Seas, Aidan Martin, Sunset Sweatshop, Mobbing Bali, West Coast Wolves, Sublime Tribute Project, Jackal & The Wind, Native Young, Southern Wild, Jerry & The Bandits, Sol Gems, Jak Skandi, Bongeziwe Mabandla, Fox Comet, Opposite The Other, The Steezies, Bad Peter, Jews for Techno, Half `n Half , The Beach Toys, The Shabs, Michael Canfield, Jägermeister Brass Cartel Band, Van T, Stone Jets, Veladraco and Ben Dey & the Concrete Lions.

Up The Creek has always been a sort of exclusive festival and this year it’s no different. Only 2500 tickets are on sale so you can imaging the feel is going to be unlike any other. Festival director Caitlin Hanley explains that “As a festival that only sells 2500 tickets each year, we are uniquely positioned to deliver a high-standard show with all the benefits of a small festival; plenty camping space, clean ablutions and hot showers, minimal queues and great service all the time from our crew. This year’s line-up is probably the most exciting we’ve planned since I joined the team in 2013. We have a real mix of genres, two fantastic headliners, plenty of favourites returning and a fresh collection of bands who will be performing at Up The Creek for the first time. As a festival that prides itself on repeatedly delivering a weekend of awesome entertainment to an audience who love live music we know that 2018 will be one you don’t want to miss. A mention of thanks must go out to all of our sponsors for the 2018 festival, especially Jägermeister, our naming sponsor, who have made it possible for Fokofpolisiekar to return to our stage.”

Tickets are available at NuTickets ( at R1,030 (excluding booking fees) for a full weekend pass. With a line-up this epic, it’s a festival you don’t want to miss.
