Misty Water 2020 2021 FAQ's

Hi all you beautiful people!

We hope you’re as stoked as we are that Misty Waters 2020 is FINALLY a few weeks away and scheduled to 100% happen! It’s been a rough few years, not only with regards to Misty Waters but considering everything that transpired in this chaotic world we live in. Surely the news that Misty Waters is taking place in little over two weeks (23 to 25 September 2021) should bring joy, peace and happiness to us all, if only for a little while.

The purpose of this blog is to answer all of the frequently asked questions we have been receiving lately and set you all at ease regarding the curfew and other regulations.

Please enjoy the remainder of this read, which is extremely formal and rather banal, but if we don’t provide you with this type of information we’ll see a bunch of festies running around our festival ground like chickens with their heads cut off…  And we don’t want that.

Unless that’s your classic dance move or your preferred method of entering a mosh pit – well then it’s encouraged!
