You’ve seen them on TV and heard their hit singles These Streets and Heavenly Sent on radio, and now you get to experience them live on stage. Mi Casa, currently the hottest property on the South African music scene, head to Underberg this Easter to perform at the annual Splashy Fen Music Festival running from March 28 to April 1.

With their unique brand of soulful house music, Mi Casa has literally taken the country by storm, topping radio and video charts and bagging Best Group, Best Dance Album and Song of the Year at the 2012 South African Music Awards. They’ve also raked in numerous other local and international awards and nominations, and quickly built a massive fanbase – not bad going for a band that’s only been together since 2011!

Band members Dr Duda (producer and DJ), J’Something (vocals and guitar) and Mo-T (trumpet) combine their individual skills to create a rich sound best described as warm house beats peppered with jazz trumpet and a fresh twist of soul.

Mi Casa will share the bill at Splashy Fen with the likes of Gazelle and inviZAble, The Muffinz, Gangs of Ballet, December Streets, ISO, Matthew Mole and Niskerone.

Festival-goers can look forward to a line-up of close to 100 of the country’s hottest acts performing on four stages, top-class sound and lighting, as well as stand-up comedy, a dance valley, vibrant arts and crafts, plus loads of exciting food and drink outlets.

Camping for the entire four-night, five-day festival is included in the ticket price. Another option is an on-site ‘tent motel’ offering a more glamorous camping experience with all the comforts of home! There is also a separate family campsite, which is the ideal spot for festival-goers with young children.

Supported by Tourism KwaZulu-Natal, Splashy Fen has been going strong since 1990 and is South Africa’s longest-running annual music festival. Booking is at Computicket. More information at or contact 031 563 0824.
