We are only one and a half months away from our destiny with STRAB 2018.

Tickets are sold out and the only tickets available are those that gets into the system due to cancellations. The STRAB team were in Malongane over Easter for the annual planning meeting with their management. Everyone is excited about seeing us again!

The remaining bands for STRAB will be announced on our Facebook site over the next few weeks and as they are announced, you can view them on our website at We have a supercool lineup again this year.

Now is also the time to book your meals, dives, merchandise, border transfers or extra days. We are less strict on the payment of these items than we are on the accommodation, so don’t be afraid to book these items. We will not cancel your booking if you haven’t paid for your T-shirt yet. You can still pay at the end of the month or worst case bring cash and pay your balance at the gate upon entry!
Just remember that you need to book Merchandise by 20 April 12:00 at the latest. For the newbies, due to logistical reasons, we print merchandise by order. We do print a small buffer on each size that we bring with, but we cannot guarantee that you will have merchandise available if you want to buy at the festival.

We have also changed the date range that you can select for arrival and departure to accommodate 19 – 30 May. If you want to arrive earlier or stay later, contact to accommodate your additional days outside of the booking system.

There are two Road to STRAB parties planned to get you worked up for the festival. Mercury in Cape Town will be hosting one on 4 May. Thirst@28°East Craft Exchange will host the second one. Watch Facebook and websites for the date to be announced!
