River Republic Electro Folk Festival on the Breede River
River Republic is a new festival from the Up the Creek promoters which seems to be aimed at the slightly younger ‘Rocking the Daisies’ crowd as they combine electronic dance music with folk, reggae, swing and pop.
River Republic will take place on the weekend of 27 – 29 November 215 at the Round The Bend Camp on the Breede River, Swellendam.
Where lilo meets river and electro meets rock, pop, swing and folk, where a grassy dance floor meets a bar, and a floating stage reveals a glimmer… of a hidden paradise.
Republicans, it is time to run away to the river and join us for a weekend of beats, mayhem, mischief and magic. And music! Here it is: the complete line up for our very first River

Meet new people and make friends for life, and for a while forget your city strife. Escape to the River Republic. A place where time slows and feet are moved by the rhythm of the river and the movements of the sun. Where people laugh and scream and dance and dream, and there’s no hate or sadness or horror or badness, just joy and electro, and light and delight. Catch your most loved local musicians, both DJs and bands, and play chess on a dance floor quite chequered and grand.
Let the music keep playing with a shake and a shiver, and you’ll be ever so grateful you came to the river.
