The Basics

26-29 January 2017
Swellendam, South Africa

Up The Creek Music Festival brings international and local lineups to the banks of the Breede River in Swellendam, South Africa.

A river full of colourful lilos and pretty much anything that floats, open-air stages that ring out with everything from rock-n-roll to folk, and (we think) the only festival stage in the world you can watch from in the river itself: Up The Creek is as summery and free-spirited as they come.
