Now in its 12th year, White Mountain is KwaZulu-Natal’s only three-day acoustic music festival and the perfect opportunity to escape the city and unwind in a stunning setting while enjoying a line-up of some of the best acoustic acts in the country, plus so much more!

It takes place from September 28 to October 1.

Known for its intimate, relaxed atmosphere, the festival is held at White Mountain Lodge in the foothills of the Giant's Castle Nature Reserve, only 185km from Durban and just 28km off the N3 on tarred roads.

Performing at White Mountain this year are the likes of Luke Lovemore (Top 7 finalist on this year’s season of The Voice SA), Crimson House, Jenny & The Jameses, The Sextons, Black Whiskey, The Sweet Resistance, Jerry & The Bandits, Bianca Santoro, Roxton met Herki, Luca Hart and Freddy Lalendle, to name a few.

Colourful arts and crafts, a wide variety of food and drink outlets, plus loads of outdoor activities for the whole family including a 100m zip line and fun stuff (like scavenger hunts) for the kids. And that’s not forgetting the lodge’s spacious grounds, fishable dam, swimming pool and charming old pub (with satellite TV and late-night live music), which add another dimension to the usual festival experience.

Situated on terraced ground overlooking the dam, the festival campsite has its own ablution facilities, plenty of space, and is adjacent to the main entertainment area. (No electrical points.) Camping in this area is included in the ticket price.

If you don’t have camping gear, or the thought of putting up and dismantling your own tent sounds too much like hard work, there is also the option of booking into a stylish on-site ‘tent hotel’, offering a relaxing and affordable camping experience with all the comforts of home. (Think spacious walk-in tents, comfy beds, linen, towels, chairs, tables and hot showers.)

Price (festival tickets not included):
Min 2-night stay – R1,100 per tent per night – sleeps 2 persons
Min 3-night stay – R1,000 per tent per night – sleeps 2 persons

Groups of 10 or more people wishing to make a bulk booking will qualify for a discounted ticket price of R450 per person. This special rate is not available from Computicket and tickets need to be purchased directly from C-Weed Entertainment Promotions. Contact Mandy at 031 564 9074 or email
