In case you did not know, The Republic of Mieliepop offers a laid back 4 day musical festival experience with over 90 acts performing on 6 different stages, catering for a wide variety of musical tastebuds. The festival also takes place at an one-of- a-kind picturesque venue in Mpumalanga, complete with lakes, swimming pools, caves, green lawns and luxurious ablutions facilities filled with beautiful, friendly festival goers.
