But don’t be so bedazzled by the old favourites that you miss out on the Suidooster festival’s new stars: three times Sama winner Lira, the Black Tie Ensemble, more 7de Laan household names, Christo Davids and Zane Meas, the Cape funky Irit Noble, the ever energetic Alistair Izobell, the acclaimed Amanda Strydom and our festival artist who was honoured by the president, Peter Clarke.

The movie offering focuses on Distrik 6: the 13 hour-long documentary episodes are a unique combination of archive footage, interviews and music directed by the late great Taliep Pietersen.

Due to the hands-down success of 2009’s cooking shows, they are dishing up Huiskok Glanskok Live! based on the book by the same name with famous chefs Francois Ferreira and Errieda du Toit. Also on the menu is an exhibition of food art photography by the book’s photographer and Chris Koch will offer you a delectable taste of whisky and chocolate with his festival circuit hit.
