Otterlake Easter Festival 2015
Gauteng’s premier music festival The Otterlake Easter festival is back and bigger than ever this coming Easter!
Enjoy 3 days of live music, performed by South-Africa’s top artists, in the serene bush-veld surroundings of Kameelfontein, north east of Roodeplaat Dam, less than 40kms from Pretoria’s center. Come and swim in our lake or pool, fish, camp, laugh and experience the magic for the long-weekend! The festival is ‘kiddie friendly’- children’s play area with jumping castles etc. and swimming pool. Free entrance for children under 12 (bring ID’s). Not only will you enjoy an experience of a lifetime; you’ll be contributing to a very worthy cause, as proceeds of ticket sales will be donated to Unite Against Poaching and help protect our country’s precious rhinos.
For the thirsty the festival has two main bars and a beer garden, for the hungry there will be a variety of tasty food stalls. Weekend Camping, clean toilets and hot shower facilities available. Other facilities include a mobile ATM, curio stalls and wood for sale.
An extra highlight on Saturday eve will be Otterlake’s Easter Fire Celebration – a 10 meter high bonfire, an old European tradition, which symbolizes the bringing of people in from the darkness and into the light.
Live music starts daily from 12h00 until 24h00 Friday to Sunday.
Gates for the event will open daily from 10h00.
Day visitors also welcome.
This year’s lineup includes:

Finally, after 7 years, the release of Anna Davel’s latest solo album “Moment”.
With 13 brand-new original, soulful tunes composed by her over the past decade. Titles like “Missing string” (How some people leave behind an everlasting emptiness), “Photograph” (The sad realization that your memory of a lost love’s image is slowly fading), “Kompas” (how your heart finds its own way in spite of our attempts to remain headstrong), “Afrika se son” (For Anna’s brothers who live overseas) and “Sondagmiddag” (The beauty of fleeting moments, like this autumn afternoon in May with a dear friend).
The production and arrangements of “Moment” were masterfully put together by legendary SAMA and EMMY winner JB Arthur, producer of amongst others Freshly Ground and Watershed, and also the Film score creator of Story of an African Farm and the official FIFA 2010 campaign. Some of SA’s best and internationally acclaimed musicians, such as Matthys Maree (piano), David Klassen (Drums), Denny Lalouette (Bass), Nathan Smith en Juan ‘Floors’ Oosthuizen (guitars), are featured on Moment.
