The kykNET Jukebox Roadshow, which includes artists such as Pieter Koen (the winner of the Huisgenoot Tempo Presenter of the Year Award), multi-talented Ricus Nel, the hunky men of ADAM and the beautiful and talented ladies of MWAH, will also make a pit stop at the festival.

Other entertainment includes an aerial display, an extreme motorcycle stunt show, mohair and alpaca expos, wine and beer tents, cooking demonstrations, agricultural displays, new car and 4x4 expos.
There are some great attractions for kids at this year’s festival.

A safe Kidz Zone has also been designated for them, while parents browse through 350 specialist stalls.
Come hungry. There will be lots of tasty snacks and meals on offer, which will have your tummy going wild from early till late.
Sports fans will be pleased to know that a big screen will be up and running in the Windhoek tent and live matches will be screened throughout the weekend.
