Festival Description

Hilltop Live and the Dullstroom community are thrilled to present the first Dullstroom Winter Music Festival. The inaugural festival, takes place in June 2011 in the middle of winter. Dullstroom is a small village town in Mpumalanga fondly described as The Scottish Highlands of South Africa. It is known for its unique crystal clear Highveld dams and unconventional “Christmas in July” which is synonymous with the town. This town literally lights up in July with traditional Christmas decorations by the residents giving the town a real Christmas feel.

The Dullstroom festival presents a perfect getaway adventure for the entire family. The festival buzz ensures that there is never a dull moment in Dullstroom during the two weekends of festivities. In Dullstroom there is no shortage of accommodation. The area has accommodation with over 2000 beds for those who wish to spend the weekends in the town. Dullstroom has enjoyed enormous growth in recent years with over 20 celebrated restaurants and pubs where you will enjoy splendid food, sun downers and the locally brewed coffee. The Chocolate shop and Cheese factory are also an attraction for the visitors.
