Everything kicks off on Thursday, 31st January with a chilled out preview gig at the Rolling Stone SA stage. Next year will once again feature live music on 3 stages throughout the weekend: The 4th Street Main Stage, the MK river stage and the all-night-long Rolling Stone stage (performances happen one stage at a time, weirdly enough). Red Bull will be bringing up some djs to man the van, playing a river set on Saturday afternoon, directly after the Wedding of a mysterious couple (yeah I don’t know either). BOS ICED Tea, always keeping it natural, will be wooing you with an acoustic set and BOS cocktails down at the River during Friday and Saturday morning.
