Hatchetman Unplugged62

Hatchetman will be performing at the Unplugged 62 Music Festival.

The organizers, Red Hot Events, bring you an array of popular SA musicians throughout the weekend, including the blues rock phenomenon Albert Frost; the enigmatic Majozi who`s hit single “The River” played on major radio stations including 5fm and KFM and SA`s favorite instrumental dance band Nomadic Orchestra. Add to that the stylish gypsy jazz sounds of Manouche, the raw melodic rock of the much talked about newcomers Slow Jack and Hatchetman, three men who wrap their remarkable blend of three-part harmony around an intoxicating brew of original songs. Wrap it all up with the fabulous DJ Dirtroad’s “50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, and some 90’s beats” – and the weekend promises to be the best party the Klein Karoo has ever seen.

All ticket options include a full weekend of festivities. The Joubert-Tradauw Wine Farm will play host to nine bands starting Friday evening at 19:00 and ending Sunday morning at 11:00. Tickets also include access to camping facilities, as well as a R62 Deli Alfresco Klein Karoo lunch on the Saturday from 15:00 to 17:00 along with a glass of Unplugged62 Sauvignon/Merlot (your choice).

There will also be a market style tasting area on the farm with all sorts of delicious local fare to enjoy. Think cheeses, olives, freshly baked goodies, biltong and more. Wine on offer for the weekend will be plenty and a fully stocked bar will be set up next to the stage where visitors can enjoy tastings of Joubert-Tradauw’s wines as well as other brands.

Unplugged62 is a great weekend away for the whole family – all ages are welcome. Kids 12 and over can take advantage of the discounted ticket rate, while kids under the age of 12 are allowed free entry.
