    Where’s the Patat Festival in Napier WC in June? You missed that one and it’s a great Festival. Please give the smaller towns a showing too. Thank you.

    You guys need to add Feastival to the list!!!
    One of Cape Towns finest for amazing craft food and drinks with live acoustic music that eventually turns into amazing DJ sets. One of my ultimate favourites for Cape Town winter.
