“Kouga Municipality is extremely proud to partner with Collective Records to bring residents and visitors to our beautiful region an unforgettable Easter Festival,” said Kouga Executive Mayor, Horatio Hendricks.
“Without their selfless assistance, this festival would not have been possible. It is thanks to them that the well-known artists will take to the stage at no cost to Kouga Municipality. Come visit us in Jeffreys Bay for a festival created to uplift the Kouga community.”
On Saturday April 16, festivalgoers can expect the following confirmed line-up: DJ Jazzy D, Ernie Smith, Jarrad Rickets and Don Vino, DJ Oskido, DJ Zinhle and Early B.
