More about My Karoo Buurman Octoberfest
My Karoo Buurman October fest is on now, Saturday, 28 October, from 12:00 until 23:00, and it’s a beautiful day in the Cape Winelands at Simonsvlei Winery, Paarl.
It’s an Octoberfest with a rocking edge, says the organisers, promising some of the best up and coming craft breweries, plus legendary South African rock stars.
Akkedis Band and Gerald Clark headlines the day, with smooth supporting acts Boulevard Blues, Johnny Camel, Mean Black Mamba, Ricky Nass, François Haasbroek as well as The Pelicans feat Dinka (all the way from Poland).
But that’s not all, there’s off-beat beers (and off-beat people) straight from the breweries, barrels of vintage wine, crazy tunes and crazier times. Luscious lawns, majestic mountains, and fabulous foods frame the rest of your day trip to the winelands.
