We were so optimistic that we could break the Covid-19 Blues this Autumn. All systems were ready to rock but with the Second Wave now washing over us, it is hard to imagine that the Authorities will give us the go-ahead for a Music Festival by the end of March 2021.
The planning of Misty Waters 2020 has already been finalised over a year ago. That includes artist deposits paid, sound engineers booked, vendors lined up, and everything else imaginable to host one of South Africa’s finest Rock festivals. It is with the continuous support from our fans and our optimism that we will do everything in our ability to celebrate another magical Misty Waters, at Lake Umuzi, before the end of 2021. Everything is in place and ready to rock at any given point. However, the first suitable and realistic date for a safe Misty Waters, is the Women’s Day long weekend of 6 to 8 August, 2021.
All festival accommodation and tickets already booked and paid for have already been moved to the new date. Any booking made and paid for before the end of March 2021, will still be honoured at the original 2020 prices. All bookings made from April 2021 onwards, may be subject to a slight escalation.
We realise that these are in dire straight times and those unlucky ones not able to make the new date (or should need be the soonest possible date) will, of course, be refunded any monies paid, in full.
We, the Misty Team, are committed to bringing Fans the best we can LIVE, in Rock, Blues, Indie and Folk bands, as soon as we can. We will do all in our power to grow the Misty Legacy by being as fair to the fans, the Artists and the Vendors as possible. Except for our International Band, Kongos, all the local bands are keen and ready to rock.
This Virus won’t get us down, we will never give up!!

For now, all we can do is wait in anticipation for the President to address us during the second week of February and hope for some good news. In the meantime, keep rocking those masks and stay safe!
