INNIKLOOF is a South African music festival “met skop”,

featuring some of South Africa’s top artists and musicians.

Hosted at the bespoke Swadini, A Forever Resort, the festival promises to be a treat for the ears, eyes and soul. So bring your butcher, your baker, your banting-bread-maker and the whole fandamily, en kom makietie dat die vonke spat!


Ricus Nel


Ricus Nel is a popular musician, singer and songwriter, especially known for playing not 1 but 13 different instruments. His debut album, Sak en Pak was released in 2011 and quickly achieved gold status, cementing his name in the minds of Afrikaans music lovers across the country. Be sure to catch him on 17 December for country-rock performance that will move you to your core. |

Ray Dylan


Originally from the small town of Odendaalsrus, this established Afrikaans singer is certainly no "New Kid in Town”. He originally kicked off his music career by performing in clubs and bars, before hitting the stage with well-known South African singers across the country. While the electric guitar is his instrument of choice, he’s most known for tickling the heart strings with his heartfelt ballads.

Joe Foster


Joe Foster is a South African songwriter and solo artist. Originally a member of the popular Afrikaans group ADAM, he wrote a number of their most recognised songs like "Gebore om jou lief te hê", "Hartklop" and "Hart se volkslied". Joe has become a regular at music festivals around the country, and is known for drawing big crowds at bespoke shows like the Huisgenoot-Skouspel. |



Juanita du Plessis definitely needs no introduction! Widely considered to be one of Afrikaans music’s sweethearts, Juanita has something in her repertoire for young and old. Whether you’ve loved her since her Ska-Rumba days, or only recently been enchanted by her iconic voice playing over the radio (because you’ve clearly been living under a Karoo rock), this is one artist you have to experience live on the Innikloof stage.

Anton Botha


Anton Botha, lead singer and songwriter of the Anton Botha Band, will be shaking the floor boards of the stage at Innikloof 2018 – definitely a performance that’s not to be missed! Over and above the songs on his own albums, he’s also written songs for Juanita du Plessis, David Fourie and Arno Jordaan, to name but a few. This lyrical genius is known for combining both heartfelt words and comical truths, to ultimately move audiences to the core. |

Riana Nel


Namibian born songstress Riana Nel will be bringing a distinct mix of pop, country and gospel to the Innikloof stage. Following numerous successful international tours, Riana has dazzled audiences across Namibia, France, Russia and Australia, to name but a few. No matter what your music preference, Riana is guaranteed to blow you away with her angelic voice and touching lyrics. |

The Massers


The Massers is a dynamic brother-sister duo that’s been taking the South African music scene by storm. If you’ve seen them on The Voice SA or spotted them performing at a local hotspot, you’ll know exactly who we’re talking about – because their unique sound is something you don’t easily forget. Combining voice and acoustic guitar, the Massers will be bringing an entirely fresh element to the Innikloof stage.



Yes, you’ve heard correctly – the man, the legend, Steve Hofmeyer will be performing live at Innikloof 2018! Entertaining South Africa for the past few decades, this talented artist and actor has become part of our cultural tapestry, and his career is practically one long reel of highlights – from performing on stages across the world to starring in numerous critically acclaimed TV shows. This is your chance to tick “seeing Steve live” off your bucket list, so be sure to get your tickets before they sell out. |

Pieter Smith


Pieter is hardly a new and unfamiliar face on the Afrikaans talent scene and his name is generally featured on the posters for most big music festivals. This is not surprising, considering that he’s been playing guitar since the tender age of four, and his first album hit the shelves back in 2001. With classic hits like Stukkie Van Der Merwe still doef-doefing on local radio stations to this very day, this talented performer will ensure plenty sing-alongs at this year’s Innikloof festival. |

Arno Jordaan


Bring the whole fandamily, because Arno Jordaan is hitting the stage at Innikloof, folks! Known for entertaining audiences of all ages, Arno first started his career in 2003 (on Zing) and has since recorded numerous solo albums, all incredibly well received by Afrikaans music lovers in countries as far as Australia. After gracing the stages of numerous festivals across the country, we’re excited to finally see him perform at Innikloof. |

Nicholis Louw


When you hear the name Nicholas Louw you know you’re in for the party of the year. With numerous awards, accolades and platinum albums under his belt, this multifaceted artist brings a combination of rock, pop and ballades to the Innikloof stage. His shows are especially known for being dynamic and high-energy, and he’ll have you on your feet, bopping your head to the infectious beats before you know it. |

Liezel Pieters


Critics have called her the Laura Branigan of Afrikaans music, and her first single “Asemloos” literally takes your breath away. Singing has always been a big part of her life, but it wasn’t until a couple of years ago that she was first noticed for her unbelievable talent and stage presence. This is one show you don’t want to miss, so make sure you get your tickets to see Liezel Pieters live at Innikloof!

He is well-known for his musical collaboration with non-other than AB de Villiers, as well as the South African group 'n Man Soos Jan.
