What is the Plett ARTS Festival?

Plettenberg Bay celebrates the arts with two weeks dedicated to live performances, workshops, fashion and much more from 25 June – 9 July, 2018 during 5th annual Plett ARTS Festival. As always, Plett presents a one-of-a-kind backdrop to an arts extravaganza not to be missed. Enjoy exciting international performances and unique cultural activities at one of the most exciting new festivals along the Garden Route.

We bring you two weeks filled with interesting and exciting festival events and activities. The town will be getting into a festival state of mind; relishing in music, art exhibitions, street performances and street food during the Twilight Meander along Plett’s Main Street. A new addition to the festival, Plett Winter School, will educate and inspire people of all ages about the visual arts, music, viticulture, wine tasting, quilt making and more with workshops and short courses from printmaker John Moore, the Cape Wine Academy, African music authority Richard Nwamba and more. A popular feature, the Plett Food Film Festival, offers a journey of compelling food and delicious film at select restaurants throughout town. The Plett Fringe Festival brings comedian Daniel Richards, and musicians Chris Chameleon and Andrew Young, to town for light-hearted entertainment and world-class music.

2018 also brings a new member to the Plett ARTS line up – AFRIDOCS in Plett, featuring documentaries, special guests, and a nightly afterparty with DJ Jazztrain and Plett’s unrivalled hospitality.  Chill at Plett SunSets on a Friday with musicians like Koos Kombuis, Msaki and Tim Hopwood.  Another new entry with live music takes centre stage on Central Beach: Plett AFROJAZZ has jazz masters, Pops Mohamed, Dave Reynolds, Ronan Skillen and Charlton Daniels opening the night and ushering in the Afrobeat sounds of Femi Koya and his 9-piece band - an exuberant finale to Plett ARTS Festival.
