GABRIELA VILJOEN

An ice-cold craft beer, local musicians jamming out on stage and a breathtaking sun­set over the Summerhill Farm landscape. A Taste of Craft, a festival held in celebration of MFM Radio’s birthday, made its annual appearance this past Saturday.

Live entertainment got the crowd going with the likes of The Steezies, Jack Parow, Uncle Spike and the legendary South African musician, Koos Kom­buis, gracing the stage.

This unforgettable line-up was accompanied by a varie­ty of craft beer, craft gin, craft wine and craft brandy tastings which were available till 18:00 to all the festival goers.

The Vanilla Colts and The Stinging Rogers opened the evening, setting the laid back and social atmosphere where-after students and craft enthusiasts gathered around the stage to sing along with multi-talented Koos Kombuis.

Once again, Uncle Spike did not disappoint and the Steezies brought their eclectic style and proudly South African sounds to Stellenbosch.

Both performed some of their unreleased and upcoming music which they have been promoting on their social media platforms. Jack Parow brought the house down with his dynamic and energetic performance and new songs.

He seemed thrilled to share the stage with Koos Kombuis and posted a picture of the two of them on Instagram, captioning: “Altyd ‘n eer om saam hierdie legend to jol”.

There was truly no better way to have spent your sunny Saturday evening than on the Sir Thomas Brewing Co. farm with local creatives and mu­sicians. If this is what’s to be expected from next years MFM birthday bash, mark your cal­endar, because you don’t want to miss it.
