KKNK festival: Vaxxed and unvaxxed welcome, under strict terms and conditions

The Klein Karoo National Arts Festival (KKNK) is back, with a Covid-19 vaccination mandate in place.

From 29 March to 3 April, festival goers will be able to attend the Klein Karoo National Arts Festival (KKNK) in Oudtshoorn – this time in an adapted format fit for the Covid-19 climate we’re currently living in.

Ticket sales opened to the public on 3 March, resulting in many people reaching out in various ways over the decision to implement a Covid-19 vaccination mandate for the festival.

Hugo Theart, Artistic Director of Kunste Onbeperk, says, “After an absence of two years the festival makes its return to Oudtshoorn with the reality of the threat of Covid-19 still in our midst. As festival organisers we must try to find solutions to provide a safe environment for a mass of festivalgoers and all other stakeholders, to limit the exposure to the virus maximally.”
