From what started as a purely rugby event from Cape Town rugby heroes Bob Skinstad and Robbie Fleck back in 2009, Cape Town 10s has emerged as a multi-sport, social (read big party), and lifestyle event – Having recently won the 2016 Discovery Sport Industry Award for “Best Live Experience” in South Africa.
A weekend of a fantastic outdoor summer good times – with live music, 100’s of hours of live sporting action, Africa’s largest beer tent and plenty of cold ones. See you there!

It’s January, the height of summer – and time for one of the more unique and hilarious music festivals in South Africa – Up The Creek!
Lounge on the river sipping a beverage of choice in the hot summer sun, vibing to the jams on the River Stage, or get fully into the music at the Main Stage, and later boogy into the night at the Late Night Stage – Up The Creek has you covered for a full weekend of epicness.
But theres far more…
This thing isn’t just called Up The Creek because you’re laming in the Breede River. There have been incidents of Ballerina flash mobs, celebrity weddings, gentlemen parading around with flaming newspapers in their rears, lobster lilos and countless other insane shenanigans.
While the festival is one of few remaining that still allow you to camp next to your car (should you choose), there is also a greener campsite where no cars are allowed and a tented hotel (Heartbreak Motel) if you don’t fancy pitching a tent yourself.
There will be plenty to eat, from snacks and local farm fare to all sorts of vegan and vegetarian delights, as well as gourmet coffees, crepes and cool-drinks. So don’t worry to bring along the kitchen sink- our food court will surely have something that tickles your taste buds.
Think about it, where else can you float in a warm river, head-bang to sick soulful, rocking tunes and sip on one of our classic cocktails; the Titanic, Iceberg or Rubber Duck.
So remember, it doesn’t matter if you have big biceps or skinny jeans, or an ironic moustache, or a non-ironic one. At Up The Creek you can be yourself, and still make friends.
And for heaven sakes bring some cool floating stuff to put in the river. Think lilos, inflatable tubes and just about anything that floats.
See you there!
