The annual Up The Creek production, organised by Red Hot Events and Blue Moon has been confirmed for 30 January to 2 February 2014. Up the Creek is probably one of the only festival left that captures the essence of what an old school gathering of this nature was like without all of the pretense.
Just a beautiful river, a magnificent out of town setting, some awesome bands and people – really all that you need. And on that note here’s a first look at the lineup for Up the Creek 2014 (with more names to be announced in the upcoming months):
Springbok Nude Girls (20th year anniversary tour)
Black Cat Bones
Desmond & the Tutus
Mean Black Mamba
Gerald Clark and The Dead Men
The final line up will consist of more than 30 bands, but this is enough to get your mouth watering for now.
Float your boat :
Lobster lilos, Indian canoes, river rafters in grand costumes, human tube chains and whatever else makes your boat float funky style, put your creativity to the test to win great prizes at the annual Saturday morning “Anything That Floats” beach party. Look out for more details in November.
