For the third year running, Greenpop will be hosting a The Reforest Fest in Platbos forest!

This exciting festival has seen over 3000 indigenous trees being planted in the southern-most forest of Africa. Platbos, a relic forest with trees of over 1000 years of age, forms part of one of the rare and endangered ecosystems of the Western Cape.

The annual Reforest Fest is an attempt to protect and grow the ancient forest through a massive reforestation festival, where we plant trees, hear great music, eat delicious food, and share a weekend of great energy and spirit in Platbos Forest. And this year, the Greenpop Platbos Reforest Fest is happening twice!

They are having a FAMILY fest (weekend of 10th, 11th and 12th May) and a FRIENDS fest (weekend of 17th, 18th & 19th May).

Everyone is welcome at both, but the focus will be slightly different. Both will have tree planting on Saturday and activities on Sunday morning.

The FAMILY Fest will have chilled and fun music on the Sat eve that will end at 10:30pm and varied fun/ educational activities for kids, teens and adults.

The FRIENDS Fest will have more upbeat dancing music on the Sat eve (a forest party that will end at 2am-ish or later) and varied active and restful activities on the Sunday – they will still probably appeal to a variety of ages. Children are definitely still welcome to the FRIENDS fest, but parents must be aware of the Saturday night party.

As well as the aforementioned fantastic forest activities, both festivals include an awesome musical lineup!
