People fed up of the British winter could consider holidays to South Africa to experience a summer festival.

The country will play host to the 25th annual Up the Creek Music Festival from 6th to 8th February, an event popular with both visitors and natives.

It features a “monumentous” mixture of bands and entertainment, including sets by popular comedians and will take place, as usual, on the banks of the Breede River close to Swellendam.

“We’re back again after a cooker of a festival in February last year,” the festival’s website states, adding that people considering a visit should keep an eye on the website for the latest announcements as to what will be taking place.

However, you may wish to be quick, since there are only 2,000 tickets available.

Summer in South Africa runs from mid-October to mid-February and is characterised by hot, sunny weather, often with afternoon thunderstorms, according to SouthAfrica.info.
