Every year the Joubert-Tradauw Vineyards open their farm in true Klein Karoo hospitality style and welcome visitors from all over to join them for a fun-filled weekend of good live music, food and wine. The organizers, Red Hot Events, bring you an array of popular SA musicians throughout the weekend of 7-9 October 2016, including the blues rock phenomenon Albert Frost, the enigmatic Majozi and SA’s favorite instrumental dance band Nomadic Orchestra. Add to that the gypsy jazz sounds of Manouche, the raw melodic rock of Slow Jack and Hatchetman, Hezron Chetty and DJ Dirtroad’s “50’s,60’s,70’s,80’s, and some 90’s beats”. The weekend promises to be one of the best parties the Klein Karoo has ever seen.
All ticket options include a full weekend of festivities. The Joubert-Tradauw Vineyard will play host to nine bands starting Friday evening at 19:00 and ending Sunday morning at 11:00. Tickets also include access to camping facilities, as well as a Deli Alfresco Klein Karoo lunch on the Saturday from 15:00-17:00 along with a glass of Unplugged62 Sauvignon/Merlot (your choice).
Van Loveren have come on board as a sponsor for the event and will be hosting a ‘Breakfast with Christina’ on the Saturday morning. MCC classique style – a delicious plate of food and glass of bubbles in the garden. Tickets available at an additional R120 per person.
There will also be a market style tasting area on the farm with all sorts of delicious local fare to enjoy. Think cheeses, olives, freshly baked goodies, biltong and more. Wine on offer for the weekend will be plenty and a fully stocked bar will be set up next to the stage where visitors can enjoy tastings of Joubert-Tradauw’s wines as well as Van Loveren’s much loved brands.
Unplugged62 is a great weekend away for the whole family – all ages are welcome. Kids 12 and over can take advantage of the discounted ticket rate, while kids under the age of 12 are allowed free entry.
