Tour Overview:

Established in 1990, Splashy Fen is South Africa’s longest-running music festival, which every Easter attracts thousands of people to a farm near Underberg in KwaZulu-Natal for a unique outdoor music experience.

The festival offers a four-day line-up of some of the country’s hottest acts, top-class sound and lighting, plus a wide choice of outdoor leisure activities for the whole family. Add to that the beautiful scenery of the southern Drakensberg, an abundance of different food and drink outlets, colourful arts and crafts, a crèche and children’s entertainment programme, as well as various camping and accommodation options and you’re set for a winner of a long weekend!

Splashy Fen has something for everyone; in fact there’s nothing else in South Africa quite like it!

The Reason

By joining the Rush budget pack, you won’t have to worry about accommodation, transport, petrol, drinking and driving or getting enough friends together to share costs. With your lift organised from Jo’burg to Splashy Fen and back, a pre-erected tent with mattresses set up for you and your breakfast served each day, all you need is some cash for drinks & snacks and enjoy the magical atmosphere provided by Splashy Fen and all the amazing artist they have install for you!

How It Works?

Once you’ve booked and paid for your trip, your entry ticket, seat and tent is allocated aside for you. All you need to do is grab a sleeping bag, pillow and some warm cloths and join the Splashy Bus at one of the pick up points in Johannesburg or Pretoria.

After a mellow ride through to Splashy Fen in the heart of the Drakensburg, your pre-erected tent and mattress will be there for you just to put your belongings down and enjoy the festival.

Each morning between 08h00 & 10h00 our crew will have a cooked breakfast for you including cornflakes, bread and jam, etc. The kettle will be on the burner each morning and evening for coffee or tea, giving you the energy you need to have a jol. There are many different food stalls to choose from for yummy lunches and dinners at such reasonable prices plus you get to try something new each day.

After breakfast on the last morning we join the coach back to Gauteng arriving back in the late afternoon.

What To Bring Along?

You need to bring a sleeping bag, pillow, some warm cloths, a towel and your toiletry’s. Splashy Fen showers are basic but they are hot with short queue’s depending on the time of day. A torch will come in very handy after dark and a warm pair of boots, gloves and a beanie will make you more comfortable late at night. If you have a floating device or tube for the days in the river, fold it up small and bring it along for some water fun.

We have all the cups plates we need but we advise you to bring a plastic cup for your personal drinks as we will not loan out cups because they seem to disappear and never to be found again.

Luggage space on the bus is limited to a certain degree so bring a small backpack for your cloths and a day bag to help us with the space.
