3000 eager fans can breathe a sigh of relief, as the promise of another wonderful Splashy Fen music festival is confirmed by the event organizers, Impi Concept Events. Finally, something we can look forward to, Easter 2022 will be remembered as the Splashy Fen Farm in Underberg, KZN is once again turning into a magical music festival for those who missed not only traditional festival music, arts, crafts and life festivities, but a sense of freedom and normality.
Tell your friends, gather your families, mark your calendars and get ready to secure your limited # splashy2022 ticket for truly the best, most anticipated Splashy Fen music festival ever. The longest-running music festival in South Africa will take place during the traditional Easter weekend of Thursday, 14th April to Monday 18th April 2022, and tickets, which are limited to 3,000, open Wednesday 6th October.
All ticket holders from the canceled 2020 festival will have their first instructions on buying tickets for next year’s event. These 2020 “ticket holders” will be emailed an exclusive, clickable link that gives them access to buy the same amount of tickets they had in 2020 at the discounted Otter Club ticket price. There will be a two-week period in which these discounted tickets will be purchased, after which ticket sales at general and normal prices will be open to the public. Those who became #splashyhero back in 2020 when they donated part of their ticket to the 2020 festival will be entitled to the promised 20% discount – which will apply to the Otter Club ticket price.
2020 would be the 31st Splashy Fen Music Festivalsst edition. It would be 4 days of music, fun and time away from the city bustle for lovers looking for a fun, safe, inclusive home away from home in one of the most beautiful parts of our country. But 2020 was not an event for the music industry and the world at large, as festivals around the world closed due to the global pandemic that was, and is, Covid-19.
“It seems like it was a lifetime ago when we announced the cancellation of our 2020 edition festival”, Says Stu Berry, festival director. “Together, with our fans, we were devastated, but there was no choice on us. None of us had any idea what we were fighting against, how long we would be absent, and what the music scene would look like when we finally returned. We have been patiently waiting for months for the green light of the authorities and the fall in the infection rate. We also watched for a long time as international festivals took the lead with numerous entry regulations that allow hundreds of thousands of fans to return to crowded stadiums to enjoy live music and entertainment again – something we are determined to offer to our South African fans and musicians; while we continue to support the local entertainment industry, which has been hit so hard by the closing of events and festivals. ”
The Splashy Fen website – www.splashyfen.co.za – has been updated with all the important information that fans need to navigate the latest ticket options. In line with the ethos of transparency and integrity of the festival, the event organizers have done everything they can to ensure that there is no risk for ticket holders, so fans are guaranteed a 100% refund for their ticket, in case the festival is canceled due to COVID locking regulations. At this stage, visitors will not be allowed to attend the 2022 festival on any given day.
“We are sure that our fans will have a lot of questions regarding the 2022 festival”, Said the festival’s creative director Andrew van Rensburg. “Our website should be able to answer all of these queries, including what we anticipate will be COVID regulations on Splashy Fen 2022. It was great to watch the European festival season working at full capacity and we can’t wait to get back there and once again provide a world experience. It’s been a tough 2 years where we’ve all been taught to stay away from each other and separate, and hopefully we’ll all come back together, laughing and smiling together. We need it now more than ever.”
