Kommetjie Festival – 7 December 2013

The laid-back seaside village is a hive of activity preparing for Kommetjie Festival which will take  place on Sat 7 December – with the usual events and more for 2013.

The Kommetjie Surf showdown, the Anything that Floats festival, a beer tent, bands, DJ’s and crafts. The event will take place on the Kom lawn… it’s a fun day out for all the whole family!


Festival Music Line-up.

Come and watch the sunset over the ocean and the stars coming out while enjoying a diverse selection of live music at this year’s Kommetjie Festival!

Our headline act, Trenton and Free Radical, rocked last year’s Festival, and after a year on the road they are returning for more Deep South love.

The line-up also includes SA music veteran Wendy Oldfield together with singer/songwriter extraordinaire Lionel Bastos and guitar guru Tim Parr.

Crimson House Blues bring their unique “bluegrass meets western punk” style to Kommetjie following a successful year on the Festival circuit and the launch of their second album.

And because the Kommetjie Festival is all about celebrating local talent, we will be introducing the fresh sounds of Southern Sons and 7th Wave.

Music starts at 5pm on the Kom, entry R80 for adults and R30 for kids under 16.
