Great News festival junkies! Bos Boogie 2023 is happening from the 25th to the 27th August near Roodeplaat dam (on the outskirts of Pretoria).
Bos Boogie has heard the rhythmic cries of the bush. Curious as to this unusual sound, reminiscent of a distant memory, that feels long passed and I set out to enquire what was afoot. My expedition was led by the hacking of pangas through the overgrown thorn bush, the crunching and bristling of the grass started to dim as my heart started to glow with nostalgia.
Peaking through the thorn bush, the celestial, the alien, the funkiest space traveler, the Bos Boogie Man, with his belly of jolly jiggling in sync with his booty, to the sounds of the best rock and reggae, this side of the boerewors curtain.

At Bos Boogie 2023 you can expect amazing live music, the gees of the most awesome people, Bositivity, epic festival kos, cozy camping, and you’ll have the chance to make memories that will last forever.
The organizers can’t wait to set The Bos Boogie grounds alight and give festival goers the opportunity to enjoy the peaceful respite that the beautiful bushveld provides. Mark your calendars, prepare your camp gear, get your maatjies in check, grab your tickets, and let’s go BOS! This year, we’re going to ROCK and REGGAE!
There will be awesome food vendors adhering to your requests from years past. There will be more stalls than the previous editions of the festival. The bar will be fully stocked and ready for you to try empty it (with improvements from last year). The festival will be expanded and you can expect improved grounds facilities.
The organizers of Bos Boogie 2023 are introducing a very important vibe check this year, and that will also work with a buddy system. They are calling this BOSITIVITY! The premise here is that there will be focus on the lekker and not the icky that’s happening in the world. This is a getaway for all who are attended and the Bositivity will be kept in check in a fun and exciting way.
