The tickets for Mzansi’s largest Afrikaans music festival, the Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees (KKNK), are now on sale. The festival will take place from 24 – 30 March in Oudtshoorn.
Guest houses, hostels, outdoor rooms, campsites and hotels in the area are rapidly filling up and concert goers are encouraged to purchase their tickets and secure their accommodation.
Rhode Snyman, CEO of Kunste Onbeperk and organiser of the KKNK, says the festival office is a hive of activity as festivalgoers look to book their tickets and secure accommodation for the week-long festival.
“At the 22nd anniversary of the KKNK, there will be plenty of entertainment for young and old, with highlights such as Heidi and the Zoid Afrika Afskopkonsert (kick-off concert).
“We will build on the winning recipe of the last two decades, thus ensuring visitors an authentic KKNK experience. As times change, the festival has to change with it. Festivalgoers can expect many new innovations at the KKNK.”
According to Snyman, pup-up theatres are one of the new concepts on show. “Pop-up theatres are an opportunity for KKNK festivalgoers to sample art on-the-go; art like people have never seen before.”
Beyond established performances and pop-up theatres, the festival offers a wide range of entertainment, from classical theatre and comedy to performances by the country’s biggest music stars. The Rivierbuurt, with its family-friendly atmosphere, promises to be fun for everyone who steps through the gates.
Productions such as The House of Bernarda Alba starring Antoinette Kellerman and the Afrikaansvatter –with, amongst others, Hemelbesem and Coenie de Villiers – should not be missed. Concert goers should be on the lookout for performances and exhibitions by this year’s Kunste Onbeperk honorary members and make sure you buy your tickets in time.
