The venue for the event is the beautiful Bosheuvel Country Estate in Nooitgedacht on the outskirts of Johannesburg. From humble beginnings the Bosheuvel brand has developed into a fully-fledged stud farm, breeding and hosting Pinzgauer cattle of the highest calibre. There is a deli, a restaurant “Cattleman’s Kitchen”, a Boutique Hotel, conference rooms, a variety of venues and much more.
Larnie Solomon Director of On Fire Events commented “The idea behind the Beefstock festival came from the love of music. We wanted to create a relaxed space for all to enjoy a weekend with some of SA’s biggest names in the local music scene. We also wanted to make the public aware of the venue itself. Bosheuvel Country Estate has some of the finest meat available.”
