Over the last week Darren Maule has been on a mission to convince his colleagues to travel to Splashy Fen with him. After much convincing, they finally said yes. 

In exchange for the VIP treatment the team will receive at Splashy Fen, they need to create and perform a song for the Splashy Fen acoustic stage. Luckily, the team have a secret weapon up their sleeve. 

Thanks to the help of KZN's local music stars, The Kickstands, as well as fellow East Coasters, this song will come together. 

TUNE IN to East Coast Breakfast tomorrow to catch Gary Nixon along with Josh Swanson as they help us with our journey to Splashy Fen.

LISTEN LIVE HERE tomorrow morning from 6-9am.

Join us at SA’s friendliest festival, Splashy Fen.

Some of the East Coast Breakfast team have been apprehensive towards journeying to Splashy Fen, but there’s nothing like a call from the event organiser, Stu Berry, to get you even more stoked and excited for the special event.

Take a listen to what went down in studio: 

With unwavering optimism and the help of some annual Splashy attendees, Stu paints a vivid picture of the festival – vibrant music, camaraderie around camp, and the exhilarating thrill of embracing nature.

There is so much to do over the festival weekend. As a local Underberg resident, Andrew van Rensburg is the festival’s Creative Director and Site Creator. Van Rensburg spends most of his year tending to the Splashy Fen event space, making sure that when fans arrive on site there is hot water in the showers, the hip-high grass is cut, the roads are prepared, and the entire site is fully functional and ready to welcome over 6,000 fans for four days of fun!

“Join in an Easter service and egg hunt on Sunday,” says van Rensburg. “Try your hand at yoga on a SUP board in the icy but beautiful river, discover your new favourite cocktail at the Klipdrift Splashy Views, catch up with new friends over a cuppa and chocolate-stuffed-croissant in the Marley Coffee Village, feel like a VIP on our Splashy Balcony in the Main Stage area, charge your phone and chillax at the Peaceful Sleep Charging Station, get your festival hair done in the craft village, take the kids for a pony ride, enjoy a morning trail run, sleep in until late, dance around a bonfire under the stars, give belly dancing and drumming a go, buy and wear your Splashy merch with pride, and just get stuck into the magic of being out in the beautiful Underberg with music to listen to and friends to make memories with.”
