The Barleycorn Music Festival at Maynardville: 10 March 2012

Posted on February 14th, 2012

The annual Barleycorn Music Festival is taking place at the Maynardville Ampitheatre on Saturday 10 March 2012. The festival showcases some of the best local musical talent, along with some favourites who’ve performed at the weekly Barleycorn gigs over the last year or so. It’s a great platform for established artists as well as up-and-coming acts.

This year’s line-up includes The Natasha Meister Band, The Brothers Streep, Steve Newman, Black South Easter, Tombstone Pete, The Stremes, Sixgun Gospel, Mothercity Mojo, Jenny Eaves, Londi Gamedze and The Philip Malan Band.

The festival has grown over the years to include a variety of musical genres and not just the ‘traditional folk’ style which fans enjoyed back in the early years. Nowadays, music lovers can enjoy a mix of rock, folk, blues, traditional and even comedy bands at the Barleycorn. Past festivals have seen performances from acts like Flat Stanley and Freshlyground who have both gone onto make big names for themselves. The very first Barleycorn Festival in 1980 saw a then unknown David Kramer taking to the stage and the rest is history…

Tickets for the festival are available at the weekly Barleycorn gig which takes place at Villagers FC (11 Lansdowne Road, Claremont) on Monday nights from 20h00. Tickets will also be on sale at the festival. The cost is R60 for adults, R50 for Barleycorn members, R30 for students, scholars and pensioners and there’s no charge for kids under 12 years old.

Feel free to bring along a picnic and blanket on the day. There’ll be plenty of food (including vegetarian) and drinks on sale at the festival. The music starts at 14h00 and finishes at 22h00. The kids can join in the fun as well, as there’ll be a jumping castle, face painting and other fun activities. You’ll find the Maynardville Ampitheatre in Church Street, Wynberg.
