Lilo Anything that Floats Competition at Up the Creek 2013

For those of you creative, mad, fun people heading off to Up the Creek Music Festival, remember to start building your floating masterpieces for the Lilo Anything that Floats competition. If it floats and its cool, bring it to Up the Creek!  Boats, lilos, inflatables, swirling zoos, colourful crates and balloon-driven-boudoirs – anything is welcome. Let your imagination go wild in creating the ultimate winning water feature.


Lilo is making a splash at this year’s UpThe Creek music festival. Literally! They`ll make sure you have a ball. Literally! They`ll keep you afloat on the river too. Literally! Lilo will be handing out lilo’s (jip, double take that) and beach balls at the festival. So you and your friends can float, play catch and make a splash. They are also running a super fun competition where you can stand a chance to win 2 full weekend tickets + a VIP paddle pool filled with drinks to be parked right in front of the Rolling Stone stage on the Friday afternoon. All you have to do is go to their Facebook page: here.  Like it, enter the competition and you could find yourself as happy as a human duck in the river at Up The Creek

Lilo will also be judging the Anything That Floats competition, so make sure that you’re floats are spectacular and no, sorry guys, there is no secret bank account for bribing the judges. Your floating creation will just have to stand out.

The competition kicks off on the Saturday morning of Up the Creek Festival at the river. There are three categories that you can enter for:

Best Float:

This prize goes to the most original, super fantastic float. The float that has us gasping in delight because of its sheer brilliance, the float that steals the hearts of onlookers and photographers alike, the float that will make many people say “now why didn’t I think of that!”  Win “Best Float” and you’ll get a bunch of great stuff including R3 000.00 in cash, a hamper from Lilo, two tickets to Up the Creek 2014 and two tickets to a Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concert of your choice.

The Most Romantic Float:

Love is in the water! If you have the most romantic float we`ll treat you and your loved one to a romantic dinner at Up the Creek. A dedicated butler will serve you a spit roast made by famed farmer Andries, while you relax by a beautifully decorated table. You will also win two tickets to Up the Creek 2014 and two tickets to a Kirstenbosch Summer Sunset Concert of your choice.

The Float with the Mostest:

How many people can you pack onto your float? A lot we hope. Because if you can get more bodies on your float than anyone else, you`ll get a free Titanic cocktail for every person standing on your float for a least one minute.
