Up the Creek

Event information

Up the Creek is the ultimate outdoor music celebration. Loyal creekers, new creekers and everyone in between is welcome as Up the Creek returns in February 2024. It will be the first reunion back at the river since 2020.

Established in 1990, Up the Creek is the second longest-running outdoor music festival in South Africa and is set annually on the banks of the magical Breede River, about 23km outside Swellendam in the Western Cape. Grab your festie besties and enjoy four days of great music, good food, chilled vibes, short queues, and a whole lot of gees.

Curate Your Creek
Up The Creek loves hearing from you and really values your constructive feedback. Your opinions on things like the line-up and food vendors matter. It helps organizers to tailor-make a fun and unique festival experience for all Creekers. Who would you like to see at the festival?

Are You a Camper or a Glamper? You’ll be stoked to know that Up The Creek caters for both! Attendees can choose to camp and literally pitch their own tent, or book in at one the Heartbreak Motel’s options.

There are four general campsite options available, but you need to decide whether you want to camp with your car or not.
