Thank you to the Stihl company, Justin Nurse (Laugh It Off) and all involved in making the Stihl Lumberjack Festival such a success! Lievland was the place to be last weekend! We hope to have a repeat performance in the near future! Up next on our calender, will be What “We Are Going To Be Doing On Sunday on a Wine Farm Near Stellenbosch” happening Sunday 6th May….acoustic live music, picnic and a relaxed sunday for the whole family. It will be the last folkfest for the season, so come and enjoy and remember to watch this space!
Lumberjack fun n games underway! Beautiful day at Lievland. Join tomorrow for more. Free tree climbing and swing extreme. Chainsaw carving not to miss. See you there…
The STIHL Lumberjack Festival will be a carnival-crazy combination of an agricultural show, a musical festival, and a family fête – all centred around Lumber Games and other sporting activities that rope in children, parents, students, and the working man. Everything from Tree Climbing and Axe Throwing, to a Giant Tree Swing, Jumping Castle and epic Water Slide will be on the go – along with great music and comedy MC’ing providing further entertainment in the background throughout the day.
A dedicated sundowner music session in the evening, when the Lumber Games have wound down, will feature Jeremy Loops performing on the Saturday the 14th of April, and the Valiant Swart Band on Sunday the 15th of April. The event will be hosted by comedian Dave Levinsohn.
Other great bands playing:
