Second batch of artists announced for Mieliepop 2016


Mieliepop 2016 is fast approaching. This festival (which will be held for the 5th time at Tolderia Resort 10 km outside Lothair in Mpumalanga) promises to be one of the music festival highlights of the year.

A few days the festival organizers announced another batch of artists who will be performing at the festival, so without further ado, here they are:

Bye Beneco, Gerald Clark, Grassy Spark, Blomtrein (Jan Blohm & Neil Nachtrein), Diamond Thug, Rambling Bones, Basson Laubscher, Sol Gems, Coelacanth, Bark, The Tazers, Blazin Gooch, Art Snakes, The Shabeen, DJ Mxit Moola and Napalma.

In case you forgot, Mieliepop 2016 will be held from the 18th to the 21st of March. They are offering you a 3 day camping experience with 50+ live acts on 3 stages at a one of a kind venue with food stalls, hot showers & lots of additional outdoor activities.

When you think Mieliepop, think great music talent, gorgeous rivers, rolling fields, squeaky clean infrastructure and incredible entertainment. Crystal clear waters, green hills, lilies and magical caves will set the scene for 3 music stages, surrounded by a massive lake and pools to keep you refreshed & energised all day long.

Ask yourself “What more do I need from a festival?” and then head on over to the Mieliepop website to purchase tickets. General admission tickets cost R550 per person.

Not convinced that you should go? Here’s the rest of the artist line-up for the festival:

Bittereinder, BCUC, The Black Cat Bones, Black Math, Bobbejaan DJ’s, Die See, Georgetown, Hellcats,
Late Night Fox, Mr Cat & the Jackal, New Academics, Tidal Waves, The Moths, The Nomadic Orchestra, The Oh So Serious and We Are Charlie.

If you’re a die-hard yogi or perhaps just dipping your toe in the reflective waters of yoga as a beginner, then the Soul Flow retreat option might be for you. Activities will be spread over three days around the exquisite lakeside lawns of the Mieliepop farm.

So what makes this retreat so special? Well, there will be an amazing selection of yoga teachers, classes and workshops, stand up paddle board yoga (lake-style), meditation, delicious nourishing vegetarian and vegan food, entertainment in the form of Hughes Rhythm, Chiba and the Dj Qki Sound experience, dancing in the cave with the DJ’s and children under 12 can attend free of charge.

Early bird tickets cost R1500 and regular tickets cost R2000 and includes 3 days at the festival and camping or campervan and parking, plus all the yoga classes (or activities) and all musical entertainment. This includes 2 Yoga classes a day, 1 Meditation session, 1 Workshop and 1 SUP Yoga per person for the day. Get your tickets at this link or e-mail [email protected] for more information.
