About Up the Creek

First opening their doors to the public in 1990, Up the Creek is the second-longest-running outdoor music festival in South Africa putting a focus on only showcasing South African artists.

The popular outdoor music festival was one of the first festivals to include comedy. In the early days, they interviewed Albert Frost at a young age during a show they called People of the Mouth. It was the festival’s version of the popular TV show called People of the South.

Before becoming the massive festival it is today, all the performances at Up the Creek took place on the “stoep” of the farmhouse located on the riverbank.

From surprise opera performances to celebrity weddings, Up the Creek has catered to loads of weird and wonderful events over past few years.
