HISTORY

A collaboration between C-Weed Entertainment Promotions and White Mountain Lodge, the annual White Mountain Festival is the perfect opportunity to escape the city and unwind in a stunning setting while enjoying a great line-up of live, predominantly acoustic acts.

Known for its intimate, relaxed atmosphere, the festival is now in its 13th year and is held at White Mountain Lodge near Giant’s Castle in the scenic Central Drakensberg region of KwaZulu-Natal, just 28km off the N3 on tarred roads, 185km from Durban and 400km from Johannesburg.

Aside from the music, festival-goers can look forward to a wide variety of food and drink outlets, colourful arts and crafts, plus loads of outdoor leisure activities for the whole family.  These include everything from a 100m zip line to fishing, volleyball, guided hikes and supervised activities (like scavenger hunts) for the kids.  There is also a choice of camping, caravanning, chalet accommodation and a stylish ‘tent hotel’.  And that’s not forgetting the lodge’s spacious grounds, convenience store, swimming pool and charming old stone pub (with satellite TV and late-night live music), which add another dimension to the usual festival experience!

One of the best-kept secrets on the music festival circuit, White Mountain is a gem of a festival and definitely not to be missed! Expect great music, fun times and smiles all around…
