While the infamous Wolflop Weekender festival has quite the epic reputation in Cape Town, this year (due to COVID-19 & its associated regulations, restrictions, and protocols), it will present its very own covid-compliant incarnation of the iconic and beloved Wolfkop Weekender Lilo River Flow, held over two weekends with a never experienced before week long retreat in between.

The legendary Wolfkop Weekender is an intimate gathering and music event; a best-kept secret, hidden deep within the Citrusdal Valley, past the orange groves and down by the river. Lilo River Flow takes place over two weekends this year (14 – 24 January 2022), both bearing the brilliant brunt of the mid-Summer heat; making for water-based days that see a floatila super-highway take to the river. Festivalgoers indulge the senses in a crystal clear back-to-nature experience and take in cool evenings doused with the adventurous energy of campout. A quality and understated soundtrack floats on a breath of wind by day and moves you deep into the night.
