The line-up is one of the craziest South Africa music festival line-ups that I’ve seen in recent times. It’s even crazier than last year’s amazing Mieliepop line-up which left many South African music lovers and festival junkies with smiles on their faces before, during and after that particular festival.

This year’s line-up is awesome because it reads like an Encyclopaedia of SA Music in 2016/2017:

Adelle Nqeto, ANG, Bad Peter, Barbosa Experience, BCUC, Ben Dey & the Concrete Lions, Benson, Bhashkar, Black Math, Boargazm, Bobbejaan DJs, Bye Beneco, Crimson House, Desmond & the Tutus, DJ Legend, Dogstarr, Haezer, Half ‘n Half, Hellcats, Hello Beautiful, Hot Water (Duo), Ella G, Embassy, Fabio, Femi Koya, Freecaps & Teeshirtz, Fuzigish, Gerald Clark, G-Force, Grassy Spark, Greg Georgiades & Ultra Natives, Johnny Cradle, Jol Stransky, Jonathan Peyper, Kallisto, Late Night Fox, Lil Bow, Luma, Majozi, Medicine Boy, Menticide, Miagii, Michael Canfield, Michael Lesar, Morrison Taylor, Mouse, Mr Green, Naming James, New Academics, Night Vision, PHFat, PopArtLive, Retro Dizzy, Rudeboyz, Rudeone, Shortstraw, Sound Sensible, Tidal Waves, The Dandies, The Dead Trends, The Deathrettes, The Lectric Monks, The Oh So Serious, The Tazers, The T’s & C’s, Thor Rixon, Urban Village, Vasco Bromada, We Are Charlie, Yo Grapes & Zolabudde.

Mieliepop has changed quite a bit since it was first held in 2011, but I have to say that it has always been one of the festivals that I look forward to on the South Africa music festival calendar annually. It’s a mixture of the breath taking venue, the amazing line-ups, the chilled-out festival vibe and the rave cave just makes me want to go back to Mieliepop every single year (and if you’ve been there before, you’ll totally agree with me).

    Ek sal iemand van ISIS throat-jab net sodat ek kan gaan. Hopelik is die ou ‘n vet penis liefhebber want as ek daai kaartjies kry sal my mielie fokken once pop, pappa. Ek sal ook natuurlik seker maak as ek Henno raakloop, dat hy genoeg Black Label in sy hande het, en n plekkie los vir n tequila of so. As hy mooi vra, sal ek enige girl kry om saam ons te pose vir n foto sodat ons kan feature op RWR 😀

  • Tiaan Greyvenstein

    Ek sal enige iets doen om my mielie te laat pop. Trust me. Say it and I’ll do it! Ek het al my hairy nipples geflash by parks vir Oppi kaartjies, ek het al kaalgat deur fonteine geswem vir Jool kaartjies. Ek sal ENIGE iets doen vir festival tickets!

  • Joss de Villiers

    I will Print a whole bunch of mieliepop posters and instead of clothing wear those for a whole day while I go and participate in various activities around town – Like begging at a Robot, Doing cartwheels across the local rugby field, Climbing up a street lamp and screaming “Mieliepop”, and possibly even propose to a pretty miesie. Would be pretty fun for everyone involved.

  • LizzyLOve

    Ek sal laat JOhan my bodypaint soos ‘n mielie met wolfkop.

  • Irene Holder

    I will gladly take a slushy in the face, broadcast it LIVE ON FACEBOOK all in the name of Mieliepop

    And I would do anything for Mieliepop,
    I’d run right into Ermelo and back.
    I would do anything for those acts,
    I’d never lie to you and that’s a fact.
    But I’ll never forget the way your music makes me dance,
    Oh no, no way.
    And I would do anything for Mieliepop, but I won’t do that,
    No, I won’t do that.

    Anything for Mieliepop,
    Oh, I would do anything for those acts.
    I would do anything for the jol, but I won’t do that,
    No, I won’t do that.

    Some days the hangovers come easy,
    Some days Jagermeister comes on hard,
    All these days are a celebration, and these are the days that should never end.
    Some nights the Hellcats are breathing fire,
    Some nights Albert Frost is carved in ice,
    Every night is like nothing I’ve ever experienced before or will again.

    Maybe I’m broke, but it’s something I have to do,
    I know Running Wolf’s Rant can save me, no-one else can save me now but you.

    As long as Haezer’s decks are turning it up,
    As long as New Academics are burning it up.
    As long my dreams are coming true,
    You’d better believe it, that I would do…

    Anything for Mieliepop,
    And I’ll be there until the final act.
    I would do anything for that party, and I’ll take the Jager and a six pack.
    I’ll never forgive myself if I don’t go and if I do, I may never come back.
    I would do anything for Mieliepop,
    Oh, I would do anything for that jol.
    Oh, I would do anything for Mieliepop, but I won’t forget the fact,
    That I’m there thanks to Running Wolf’s Rant.
