The New Republic
We experienced our first taste of Mieliepop last year when the festival celebrated its fifth edition. The adventure was filled with a variety moments which collaboratively saw us adding the boutique festival to our list of must-attends. Each moment was only further augmented by the boutique peripheries which included an exquisite location, a varied line-up appropriate for any taste, and most importantly the right amount of good people.
Unlike the fate of a few other local festivals, Mieliepop is coming back this year for its sixth installment. 2017 is the year the boutique festival becomes a republic. The team has put in the yards and the little assembly in Tolderia now stands toe-to-toe alongside the best South Africa has to in outdoor music experiences.
“We observe today not a victory of a party, but a celebration of freedom, creativity and individuality – symbolizing an end, as well as a beginning – signifying renewal, as well as change. For we have sworn before you and almighty God of Great Music an oath to present the best artists a country has to offer across all genre’s over one weekend.” – Kernel Mieliepop
