It’s been a while since we’ve been able to relax a bit and attend local food and wine festivals, just like it’s been a while since artists have had the opportunity to perform live on stage.
That’s why this year’s Proe’toria festival is one not to be missed. Especially when you look at the line-up, they are promising festival goers…
Held at the 5-star Hotel Monte de Dios, this feast for the senses may be just what you need to get back into (post-Covid) reality.
It’s a festival for all the family, with the best South African music, food, wine and even children’s entertainment.
Whitley Neill Handcrafted Gin is the main sponsor of the event, so when it comes to libations, you’re in the right place.
On March 5 and 6, artists such as Karen Zoid, Jo Black, Die Heuwels Fantasties, Reventse, Janie Bay, Early B, Riana Nel, Martin Bester, Ampie, Jemma Catherine and Dagbraak will entertain the audience.
There will also be food demonstrations and you can browse various craft offerings during the event.
Pierre Greeff of Die Heuwels Fantasties: “We were delighted that festivals would take place again and can’t wait to be on the stage of Proe’toria.
Riana Nel says: “Proe’toria has something for everyone and I look forward to being a part of it.”
The Proe’toria Festival will boast over 40 stalls selling food, wine, art and craft beers, and while these exhibitors and vendors can come from all over the country, the festival aims to give you a good idea of Pretoria.
For artists like Janie Bay, being able to get back on stage is a wonderful prospect.
Originally from Cape Town, she has recently moved to Pretoria and is looking forward to performing with rap artist Early B with their songs ‘My Lief’ and ‘Die Universel’.
Jemma Catherine – a newcomer to the music industry – will also showcase her talent on the stage of the Proe’toria Festival. She has previously shared the stage with famous singers such as Francois van Coke and Ruhan du Toit and her first single entitled ‘Alles gee’ will be released soon.
The festival will be presented by Jacaranda FM’s Thambiso Khambule, who will host the event and give out numerous prizes to lucky festival-goers.
Mont de Dios and the owner of the EPH Group, Leon Pheiffer, says: “We have waited two years to re-present Proe’toria and are now working very hard to give people an incredible experience. We are grateful that we can generate income for them again together with the artists.”
Festival times are from 10am to 7pm and the gates close at 9pm on Saturday and 6pm on Sunday.
Tickets for the Proe’toria Festival are available on tixsawith VIP tickets available until March 2.
