This year, the festival will be hosted at the Old Biscuit Mill in Woodstock, and promises to be bigger and better than ever before. The festival has partnered with The Neighbourgoods Market to bring you a delightful day out with fabulous food traders, stalls, and a curated line-up of live music to get your foot tapping and rump shaking.

Festival goers can expect a bounty of delicious artisanal eats by Cape Town’s street food stars and a diverse lineup of musical acts across multiple stages, all in celebration of the purveyors, spirits and cocktails behind South Africa’s iconic gin culture.
