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!


Dewald Dippenaar


Dewald Dippenaar is known for his energetic and lively performances – a born musician if ever there was one! With a unique voice that’s cut out for rock and country, his toe-tapping hits will certainly get you on your feet and make you sing your heart out. Dewald is known for bringing out the guitar and harmonica, which ads an extra cultural dimension to his performances. Hang onto your sokkies, bokkie, because this guy will rock yours off! | |

Willem Botha


Willem Botha is everybody’s friend! This likable fella’s music and down-to-earth personality has launched him into stardom over the last couple of years. Best known as the runner-up in the reality competition Afrikaans Idols, Willem has crept into the hearts of girls, ladies and dames of all ages. You might also recognise him from the famous movie Liefling, not to mention his starring role in the kykNET series Donkerland. Join him on a lyrical journey, and be swept away by his smooth and perfectly composed melodies! | |

Touch of Class


If you haven’t heard of this dynamic musical duo, climb out from under that big rock you’ve been hiding under at Innikloof, and prepare your ears for a musical journey unlike any other. Touch of Class produces the type of music that not only moves you emotionally, but also moves your feet (“skoffel-skoffel!”). Performing a combination of original music and new interpretations of your old favourites, Ruhan and Deon will have you humming their lyrics for months after Innikloof. Bring the whole family for a performance that will make you feel both upbeat and nostalgic at the same time!



Refentse Morake is the very definition of a “gem”, discovered by none other than our queen of rock, Karen Zoid. At the young age of 17, his next door neighbour spotted him singing in the garden of his parents’ house in Vereeniging. Mesmerised by his talent, she asked if she could post a video to Facebook – which ended up being shared over 120 000 times! Today he’s regarded as one of the freshest new talents to hit the music scene, and he’s has graced the stages of the KKNK among other big festivals.


Dewald Wasserfall


Dewald is the type of guy you’d want to invite over for a koppie koffie so you can chat about the deeper and lighter things simultaneously. This talented musician and songwriter knows how to tickle the guitar strings, not to mention getting a crowd to sing along to hits you didn’t even know you knew. Whether you’re Sewentien or fifty-seven, you’re bound to get swept away by his energetic performance, and you’ll still be humming his songs well after Innikloof has become another distant memory. | |

Neil Somers


Niel Somers is known across the country for producing what we like to call "musiek met siel", and his melodic voice speaks directly to the hearts of young and old. Over the years he’s shared the stage with many big names like Koos Kombuis, Dozi, Theuns Jordaan, Robbie Wessels, Bok van Blerk, Lianie May, Hugo, Kurt Darren and many more, mesmerising audiences with his smooth vocals and heartfelt lyrics.



If you love a fast-paced sokkie, you’ll definitely be familiar with this South African heart throb! Jay kick-started his singing career as part of the popular boy band Eden, and went on to launch a highly successful solo career. Over the years he’s performed at numerous festivals, opskoppe, and parties, and he’s even shared a stage with Westlife, Ronan Keating and The Corrs. Come along for the ride – even if your name isn’t Melanie, you’ll still want to sing along to all of his top treffers! | |

Sonja Herholdt


Sonja Heroldt really needs no introduction! Widely considered as South Africa’s sweetheart, this multi-award winning singer will be taking to the stage at Innikloof and you don’t want to miss it. Having made her first stage appearance in the local mining community recreation hall at the age of three, she’s been enchanting audiences with her vocals and sparkling personality for many decades now. Prepare to be swept away on a nostalgic musical journey – a treat for all ages!

Don't miss out on the “Carol by Candlelight Show“ with Sonja Herholdt, completely free of charge! | |

Pieter Smith


Pieter is hardly 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 Innikloof this year. | |

Pieter Koen


Pieter Koen is a name that any Afrikaans music lover will instantly recognise, and rightly so! His toe-tapping beats and catchy lyrics form an integral part of the South African rhythms tapestry, and his likeable personality is known for drawing crowds from distant corners of the country. Over and above setting the stage on fire with his music, he’s a well-known radio and TV personality – so if you’re ready to Skud Jou Biscuit, then don’t miss his show-stopping performance! | |

Die Campbells


Catch South Africa’s favourite duo live at Innikloof, where they’ll be performing all your favourite country, rock 'n roll and sokkie treffers! Brothers Harry and Tony Campbell are both born and bred in Cape Town, which means they know how to rock a mountain. Having sold more than 700 000 CD's and DVD's, these charming young fellows are a household name in South Africa, as well as in Namibia, Botswana, Mozambique and Zimbabwe. | |

There’s more to life than music – said no one ever. However there’s certainly much more to the Innikloof Festival!

If you’re wondering whether or not you should attend the 2017 Innikloof festival, stop. Just stop, because there’s nothing to wonder about. Here’s a glimpse at last year’s kapperjolle; a picture may be worth a thousand words, but not even a thousand words can describe the epic-ness that was Innikloof 2016.

They’re selling like hot cakes – or as we say “soetkoek” – so don’t say tomorrow, buy TODAY!





During festival time, tickets will be sold at Swadini, A Forever Resort – every day from 11:00 am to 13:00 pm at the swimming pools.

If you overslept, take a chill-pill! You can also get your hands on tickets at the gates before every show.
