Music & Entertainment
The Whale Fringe Festival, now officially in its third year, once again celebrates the arrival of spring, new life and the Whales in Walker bay with a programme of real music and entertainment in existing venues in Hermanus that mostly provide a year round platform for local performances.
The Rivertones, Slow Jack, Manouche, Gypsey James, Money for Jam, Dave Knowles, Zwelihle Marimba, James Saunders, Wild Lettuce, Roby Auld, DJ Sharklady, Paige Mac and jazz band 24/7 are some of the artists performing at these venues: Tapas, Dutchies, Gecko Bar, Bientangs’s Cave and the Fisherman’s Cottage Restaurant. There are also performances of Koeked at Maya’s vineyard in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley.
The Hidden Treasures Guide, another Fringe Festival initiative, takes one on a tour highlighting the unique shops, galleries, boutiques and eateries around Hermanus where one can enjoy personal, friendly service, unique products and fine fare.
The Hidden Treasures Guide and the Music & Entertainment Guide are both available at outlets throughout Hermanus including guest houses, venues, shops and Hermanus Tourism offices, as well as on the website and Facebook.
