Country Hotels

Looking for a stunning evening out with your family? If you live in the Northern Cape you might have been frustrated with the limited amount of entertainment options available. But that’s all about to change.

As the leading hotel brand in the Northern Cape, the Country Hotels Group is now leading the live music and eventing space with a brand-new events portal and series of music events featuring top artists.

Responding to the impact Covid-19 had on the livelihood of performing artists and local community members, Country Hotels came up with a novel and very entertaining way to stimulate growth in the region through partnerships with local schools, artists, and businesses.

The result is a series of music events hosted by Country Hotels across the region. The events feature top performing artists such as Steve Hofmeyr, Demi Lee, and Robbie Wessels to name just a few. Each event allows schools to participate to raise funds, and local small businesses and beverage brands to benefit from increased exposure and awareness on event evenings.

“Yes, you can say these events are an absolute labor of love,” says Craig Carmichael, Chief Operating Officer of Country Hotels. “We envisaged a platform that benefits everyone in the community – from local businesses and beverage brands, to schools who are always in need of funds. This platform will also act as a springboard to launch our local musicians into the industry as they get to share the stage with well-known artists as opening acts. We have such amazing talents in the region – all they need is that big break. And we’re giving it to them.”

These family-friendly events happen monthly at select Country Hotels. The events are open-air happening under what is arguably the most beautiful night skies in the country.

Night markets will accompany each show – allowing local businesses the opportunity to showcase and sell their products, and local schools to raise funds by selling popcorn, pancakes, etc. Event days will feature the best food and beverage specials in town including standard music festival fare such as burgers, boerewors rolls, ribs, and corn dogs as well as menu items from the hotel restaurants.

“The locals have spoken, and we have listened. We are proud to have created a platform that benefits schools, businesses, artists, and the local economy. And importantly – to bring some music and top artists to the region! Northern Cape, it’s our time to shine,” says Carmichael.

Tickets are available from select schools in the region or can be booked online. Tickets are limited per event, and with the high caliber of performers booked,
it’s a good idea to secure your ticket in advance. Ticket prices range from R120 to R250. All events start at 7pm with gates opening at 6pm.

For someone looking for an even more memorable evening out – limited VIP tickets will be made available. The VIP ticket prices vary per performance and include front row seats, dedicated parking, comfortable seating, a private waiter and bar access, and hot and cold snack platters.
