Camphill Village Westcoast is happy to announce that Hemelbesem will be the MC at this year`s Camphill Village Music Festival. The line-up includes popular South African artists: Beatenberg, Just Jinjer, Ottoman Slap, Bootleggers and Swallowers of Time. Hemelbesem is an artist, poet, activist, actor, writer and author. He has been the leading Afrikaans hip-hop artist over the last 5 years and is also well known as a presenter for the weekly Afrikaans magazine TV program Pasella on SABC 2. Hemelbesem is also a key member of the ATKV Project team for their nationwide “Liedjieslypskool” projects. His editorials have been published in Die Burger and he has been the creative force in the kykNet documentary “Vat Die Rap”. Apart from being the MC, Hemelbesem will also perform at the Camphill Village Music Festival. The Festival will be an outdoor concert, with a variety of great food and wine stalls. Come and join us on the beautiful countryside festival grounds for a day of good vibes and fabulous music. The event will start at 13H00 and run until 19:00. Gates open at 11:00. James Sleigh, Managing Director at Camphill Village Westcoast says that they are excited to have Just Jinjer and Beatenberg as the headliners of this year`s Festival. Beatenberg is the fresh new face of pop music from South Africa. They won a total of 7 SAMAS in 2015 including Best Album. Just Jinjer also needs no introduction. They are South African Music Legends. Sleigh says that with names like these on the line up, Camphill Village Music Festival will hopefully grow to be a highlight on the Music Festival Calendar in the Western Cape. Add to that Ottoman Slap`s exotic flair, Bootleggers` musical mojo and Swallowers of Time`s blues-rock vibes, the Camphill Village Music Festival 2015 is set to be an unforgettable experience.
