LUSH Festival returns to Clarens over Easter weekend on 18, 19 &20 April and this year the festival welcomes a brand new home. Noah’s Cheese on the farm Node, located just outside of Clarens, is the spacious new location for LUSH.

Life is all about experiences. Savouring beauty. Finding hidden treasures. Creating memories with family and friends.

This year’s Lush Festival showcases some of the most amazing experiences imaginable that will leave your soul spellbound.

The live performance line-up for this year’s LUSH Festival is a stellar one with Wheatus, Youngr, Kim Churchill, and Juzzie Smith confirmed as the international live acts and the local line-up seeing Spoegwolf, Jeremy Loops, Goodluck, Jo Black, TiMO ODV, PHFAT, Shortstraw, Refentse, Desmond & The Tutus and many more to take to thevarious stages at LUSH.

Wheatus are one of those rock acts with classic anthemic hits that have stood the test of time from their debut album and still ubiquitous single “Teenage Dirtbag” (released in 2000).

Youngr is an exciting edition to the international line-up and his take on ‘Sweet Disposition’ by Temper Trap went viral and racked up over 15 million views in the first two weeks.

Australian folk, rock, singer-songwriter Kim Churchill has had a number of hit singles and fans can look forward to seeing him perform singles such as ‘Window to the Sky’ and ‘Second Hand Car’ live at LUSH.

For those who love a challenge, there is the usual trail run options on site, as well as all the activities set in and around the town including MTB trails that rest against a breath-taking backdrop, guided tours, White Water Rafting, abseiling, and horseback riding along the majestic countryside.

Being a three-day festival, organisers have ensured there’s ample accommodation for festival goers who can make use of the onsite camping and the town of Clarens, which has self-catering hotels, B&Bs, backpackers, lodges, and guest houses.
