JUST PLUCK IT! (article first published : 2002-02-23)

The 13th Splashy Fen Music Festival takes place on the farm of the same name from April 25 to 28.

Splashy is renowned for being the country's gentler music festival and the largest camping event in the country. The landscape alters almost over night from green pastures to a vibey array of people and brightly coloured tents set against the superb backdrop of the southern Drakensberg.

There'll be top rock acts in the Marquee and the Dome day and night-time stage with a variety of Blues, World Music and Folk Rock, with some "reggae splash" this year. The free stage provides an opportunity for both established and up-and-coming musos to jam in front of a captive audience.

Splashy means so much to so many people. For musicians, it's a dedicated audience of between 5,000 to 10,000 people; for families, an opportunity to bond with a common interest; for teenagers, time out from parents; for music lovers, a feast for the ears, and for campers itís heaven.

Tickets presently available at Computicket at a discounted rate of R208 during February and March. In April the price goes up to R228. Tickets at outlets ie. Game, Rythmic Beat, are available from mid-March at R220. The gate price is R250.
