Acoustic music at White Mountain Lodge.

The White Mountain Folk Festival takes place from September 24 to 27 in the beautiful setting of White Mountain Lodge near Giant’s Castle in the Central Drakensberg.

The festival offers a four-day programme of laid-back acoustic music in a superb mountain setting while listening to acoustic performances by some of the country’s top artists. There is also a wide choice of outdoor leisure activities, arts and crafts, a beer market and assorted food stalls. Festival-goers can also make full use of the lodge’s facilities, including a restaurant, pub, games room, swimming pool and satellite TV.

Early Bird tickets are now on sale at Computicket for just R350, which is a saving of R150 on the gate price. This offer is limited to 500 tickets only. Children under 12 pay R50. The price includes camping in the newly graded and grassed festival campsite overlooking the dam.

White Mountain Lodge is only 34km from Estcourt on tarred roads and 200km from Durban.
