THE 20th Splashy Fen came and went in a drum-beat and proved to be one of the best ones yet. The crowd of festival goers ranged from metal-studded Goths to colourfully-clad hippies, whose Splashy spirits remained high whether they were jiving to a great South African band or chilling down by the riverside.
The White Mountain folk festival is an annual event that takes place near Giant’s Castle in the Central Drakensberg region of Kwa-Zulu Natal from 24-28 September. If you have been to Splashy Fen before this is basically a mini-version of that whole scene, only with more acoustic-type music and more of a family vibe. This was the third White Mountain festival and the event seems to be growing in popularity. I highly recommend it and suggest booking accommodation in the lodge if you’re not the camping type. It is during the rainy season after all
