We’re counting down the days until Cape Town’s biggest festival opens its doors for 14 hours of never-been-seen before production at their new home, the pristine Anura Wine Estate in the heart of Cape Town’s most visited wine region, Stellenbosch.
When you think of Get Real, you immediately think of an event synonymous with perfectly tune loud music, exquisitely beautiful people and a fantastic and safe space for you to lose yourself to the countries best musicians. While we could touch on the internationals, previous and present, we’d be here all day. Get Real really give their audience what they want with their carefully curated bookings of international superstars. These are just some of the reasons why Get Real is a festival marked off on everyone’s calendar.
Here are our top five reasons Get Real is fast becoming one of our favourite outdoor festivals and why you simply can’t miss this edition of GET REAL:
BRAZILIAN SUPERSTARS: Groove Delight & Chemical Surf
Get Real has become well-known for its big-name headliners. We can’t fault them on that and this year, it’s absolutely no different. Headlining this year’s GET REAL is the show-stopping superstar act fresh off the top of the Brazilian charts is none other than Chemical Surf. Having gained traction as Brazil’s top 3 exports with worldwide releases being supported by everyone from Alok to Tiesto, their debut show in South Africa is set to rock the roof off at GET REAL. Featuring exclusive pyro-visual special FX expect an explosive set in more ways than one!
Supported by a South African favourite and no stranger to Cape Town’s stages, GET REAL proudly ushers back a name that garners hype wherever she goes – Groove Delight returns to Cape shores. Infamous for filthy basslines, and trusted to hit the crowd’s sweet spot every single time, Groove Delight brings her banging beats to treat your aural sense from head to toe so get ready to let it all go with the Brazilian Queen of Filth.
NEW VENUE – ANURA WINE ESTATE
Anura is an incredibly beautiful wine estate in the heart of Stellenbosch, positioned on the foothills of the Simonsberg Mountains, Anura boasts a wide variety of soils, slopes and microclimates. The venue offers various products and things to do including their award-winning wines up for tasting, the beautiful Cooperage space (maybe a soon-to-be second dance floor for Get Real?). This venue is really one of the best Cape Town has to offer and is only 40km from town, the ease of access is next to none.
EXCEPTIONAL VIP OFFERING
Get Real has become known for their incredible VIP offering and this time around it’s NO different. You can get yourself a private VIP package including 6 VIP tickets with your own Private lounge pod in the raised VIP area with a Bottle of Vodka, 6 Hunters Dry, 6 Red Bull, 6 mixers with quick & easy access to private 20m bar & VIP Toilets.

WORLD-CLASS PRODUCTION, STAGE, SOUND & LIGHTING
Every year, the stage, sound and lighting get bigger, better & more of a challenge than the year before – bringing a new focus on professionalism from both the Get Real team and their production team Tech X. Since they’ve teamed up with a production house we hold in high regard, it’s no doubt that these stages and productions have developed over the years.
The team have gone over and above to put on an out of this world show for you on Saturday. From stage decor to art installations, to their food court and markets, the picturesque venue has been carefully scoped, set up and aligned to have every aspect covered for you. Keep your eyes out for the beautiful champagne girls – they’re going to be on the move all day. There’ll be PLENTY more surprises on the day, we’re going to leave you to find them.
BOUTIQUE BUT ALWAYS GETTING BIGGER
We have mentioned this slogan a few times when we mention Get Real and for all the right reasons. Every year, the local line up gets bigger. The international artists announced are of world-class quality and each year they are provided with a platform to perform for the local audience on a stage production that supersedes the year prior. We’ve gotten a glimpse into this year’s stage and festival layout. When we say Tech X has gone above and beyond, prepare to have your minds blown as you could never have begun to imagine.
