September 21 to 24
Come to the Midlands for the White Mountain Festival
Lilly Million – one of many reasons to head to White Mountain this year
Not to be missed at this year’s White Mountain Festival is Johannesburg singer-songwriter Lilly Million, an exciting new talent whose soulful organic folk vibe is creating a stir on the South African music scene.
With a sound reminiscent of Tracy Chapman yet uniquely her own, this charismatic artist is the real deal, delivering rich poetic lyrics expressively framed in simple melodies. If you haven’t seen her live or heard her songs on radio, be sure to catch Lilly Million at White Mountain over the Heritage Day long weekend, September 21 to 24.
Now in its 7th year, the festival is held at White Mountain Lodge near Giant’s Castle in the Central Drakensberg, less than 200km from Durban, 400km from Johannesburg and only 25km off the N3 on tarred roads.
Known for its intimate, relaxed atmosphere, plentiful amenities and idyllic setting, it offers acoustic performances by some of the country’s top artists, as well as arts and crafts, assorted food stalls, a beer market and loads of fun outdoor activities for the whole family.
A limited number of Early Bird tickets are now on sale at Computicket for R450, which includes camping for the entire festival. This offer runs until the end of June, after which advance tickets will cost R550.
