25th Birthday – Party like you own it!


Creekers, we know that you are rambunctiously excited to know which bands will be playing at Jagermeister presents Up the Creek 2015. Bring out the whifflers to clear the path; come closer; hear hear! Round up your friends who suffer from Deipnophobia because their mother-in-laws wear Winklepickers; wake the fudgelling folk and phone your nearest and dearest friends; your annual weekend of sheer joyful abandon at the Breede River awaits!


The good news is that none of our stages will be overlapping, so you will not be subject to spaghettification – that is, “the process by which you would be stretched and ripped apart by such gravitational forces.” Shame on those quomodocunquizing clusterfists that put up callithumpian parades to discombobulate the audience. What a waste! Do it properly we say!


With no further ado then dear folk, herewith the first band confirmations of our fabulous 2015 line up:


Zebra & Giraffe, Shortstraw, aKING, Bye Beneco, Al Bairre, The Black Cat Bones, Taxi Violence, Red Huxley, Manouche, December Streets, Hot Water, Piet Botha, Grassy Spark, Kite Rider, The Kiffness and Diamond Thug.

We know. Habromania right?That is why we will give you a breather before we announce more bands in October!
