“We are extremely excited to have worked a deal to bring an international artist to Splashy Fen in 2016,” says business Director of Impi Concept Events, Stu Berry. “Music is a global language, and Splashy has not had many international performers over the years. The announcement of Xavier Rudd and his band as one of our headliners is a massive occasion for Splashy Fen and all those who have supported the festival over the years.

“We are thrilled to announce Xavier Rudd to the line-up of musicians to Splashy Fen 2016, but will continue to remain true to Splashy’s core values with regards to supporting local South African acts, which will make up over 90% of our line-up!” reassured Berry.
