One of the country’s biggest arts festivals, the Klein Karoo Arts Festival (KKNK), has concluded after a week-long programme of music, film, dance, art and theatre.
The 26th edition of the Oudtshoorn-based event returned to the town following a two-year absence due to COVID-19.
The festival operated with only 50 percent of its normal entertainment and limited attendee numbers also to 50 percent.
Festival-goers say are they pleased to be socialising outdoors.
“It was really cool actually to be able to go and see a live show. We saw guitar kings and it was quite electric, the atmosphere and it’s just nice to be out with people again,” says one attendee.
“We as people from Oudtshoorn, we need this. It’s a big event for us, financially wise in Oudtshoorn. I personally love this KKNK”, says a local.
