"As you reflect over the coming days, concentrate on engraving the memories of a special 4 days on a Southern Drakensberg farm called Splashy Fen. A festival where the exchange rate, politics, news, conflict & judgement are forgotten, but instead family, friends, happiness and consciousness are embraced. A festival that brought 7 000 South Africans from all walks of life together. Thank you Splashy Fen. You have fulfilled our souls & we hope we have managed to fulfil yours. Until 2019... STAY HUMAN.
