Splashy Fen releases Main Stage line-up
13th February 20
It's hard to believe - but things have just gotten hotter in Durban this week, as Splashy Fen Music Festival announces their 2020 Main Stage line-up. And it's a goodie! Obviously.
This week, festival organisers Impi Concept Events hosted an intimate gathering for ticket holders and sponsors at the Kingston Beach Club in Durban for their exclusive launch party; an annual event where the Splashy Fen Main Stage line-up was announced. Streaming live to the festival’s social media channels, the team revealed the first 14 acts – consisting of both international and local musicians - who will take to the Splashy Fen Main Stage across the 4-day music festival.
“We spend months and months considering the right direction for our musical line-ups,” says Stu Berry, Festival Director. “So it’s always a big deal when it comes time to make the announcement to our fans. Last year, 5 000 Splashy Fenners completed an event survey, in which 92% of people questioned, indicated that their attendance at Splashy Fen was NOT due to the headliner acts, but rather that they trust the Splashy brand to always bring good music, and the nature of the stage performance was much more important to them than a band with top-charting hits.”
“So this year, we have focused our energy and line-up curation on musical acts that will connect with our fans through not just their talent, but through their energy and emotion too. Acts like the critically acclaimed Ndlovu Youth Choir, Mi Casa and Goodluck are just some of our South African artists who tick all the boxes. And we’ve got a handful of international acts too, who we are confident will leave a lasting impression.”
Multi-platinum artist Coleman Hell will be the first international act to hit the Splashy Fen Main Stage on Friday the 9th of April, along with Mali Zulu, Josh Wantie, The Steezies and South African dance favourites Goodluck.
Bad Peter will open the show on Saturday afternoon, followed by American artist Shakey Graves, the acclaimed Ndlovu Youth Choir, musical showstopper The Jagermeister Brass Cartel and one of those most high-energy acts in South Africa; Mi Casa.
Back by very popular demand, Australian Duo The Pierce Brothers will be blowing up the Splashy Fen Main Stage on Sunday evening, along with England’s Frank Turner and South Africa’s very own Rubber DUC and Desmond and the Tutus.
South Africa’s longest-running music festival will take place over the traditional Easter weekend from Thursday the 9th of April to Monday the 13th of April 2020. Tickets are limited to 9 000.
