Up the Creek Music Festival brought to you by 4th Street, Swellendam: 31st January – 3rd February 2013.
Up the Creek 2013 Line Up Running Order:
We’re super excited to share the running order of the bands for Up the Creek 2013 with you. This year’s line up will have you dancing in your party shoes all weekend long!
In typical Up the Creek tradition we will be running live music on 3 stages throughout the weekend: The 4th Street Main Stage, the MK river stage, and the late night Rolling Stone stage. Also look out for the new addition down at the river this year: the BOS acoustic river stage will be keeping things flowing between sets.
Pull in on Thursday, 31st January for a chilled out preview gig at the Rolling Stone SA stage. You can choose the best spot for your tent and kick-start the weekend’s carousing. The place will be cooking by the time the rest of your friends arrive. The bands and artists performing to kickstart the weekend on Thursday night are: Saintfearless, The Swingsetters, ISO, Piet Botha, the Lizard Kings, Tombstone Pete and Dave Ferguson.
Rolling Stone SA Magazine will be showcasing up and coming bands on Friday afternoon. Be sure to arrive early to catch performances by Crimson House Blues, Ballistic Blues and Long Time Citizen. Comedian Nik Rabinowitz will take the stage at 18h00 to woo and welcome all.
What better way to switch gear and get into the full swing of the weekend than by having some of SA`s most popular and talented female artists making waves on the 4th Street Main Stage. The line up for Friday night is themed: Up the Creek`s Tribute to Women and it includes performances by SAARKIE, Tailor, Machineri, Karen Zoid and BEAST.
Saturday morning`s cup of coffee will be with Lucy Kruger and Shotgun Tori and then you can move down to the river for the Anything That Floats Competition, sponsored by Lilo* – float your homemade boat, while listening to Peter Mitchell, Trenton and Free Radical, No One`s Arc, Nomadic Orchestra and Grassy Spark on the MK river stage, right next to the river.

Red Bull “splash your neighbour DJ series” will keep the rhythm going late afternoon, before you head back up to the main stage.
Saturday night brings you more of the best on the 4th Street Main Stage: YOAV, Peachy Keen, Jeremy Loops, December Streets, Desmond and the Tutus and Black Cat Bones.
To top it all off, the Rolling Stone SA late night stage will keep the party going after the main stage closes down for the night. Friday night`s late night acts include: The Mysticcs and Good Night Wembley and Saturday just after midnight you can dance to the beat of Woodstock Mafia and Taxi and Friends.
Sunday morning`s hangover cure will be Janie & The Beard and Piet Botha and of course a splash in the river to the happy tunes of Dave Ferguson, Shotgun Tori and Akkedis. Funnyman Siv Ngesi will also be showcasing his new material.
So, now you know who’s playing and what the score is. All you need is your ticket, your tent and your toothbrush.
