Lekkerland Carnival held at Pretoria Botanical Gardens



King Price Insurance`s popular annual music festival, Lekkerland Carnival started in 2017 in Dullstroom, Mpumalanga and this year, the venue is moving to the scenic National Botanical Garden in Pretoria. Expect a world-class stage and sound experience under a big, beautiful sky, a carnival area offering super rides, food trucks and a beer garden, and fun activities for the kids as reported by LekkerLand. A fabulous day out that will undoubtedly become one of the best live events in Pretoria`s annual events calendar.

Every act on this year`s line-up is known for their stellar live performances: One of SA`s legendary rock groups Prime Circle, will share the stage with the popular blue billy folk pop group Georgetown and a golden string of the country`s most loved solo artists including Elandré, Matthew Mole, Irene-Louise van Wyk, Ryno Velvet, Pedro Barbosa and Zaan Sonnekus. The funnymen Bouwer Bosch and Themba Robin will be your hosts on stage as MC`s.

De Wet van Deventer, head of marketing at King Price, says: ‘We’re super excited about the Lekkerland Carnival and encourage everyone to bring the entire family. In fact, that’s why kids aged 15-and-under enter for free. With some of SA’s best local acts, carnival rides, bars, food stalls and an awesome vibe, there’ll be something for everyone so get ready for lots of #lekkerrr fun… With a little King Price madness, of course.’

‘Lekkerland is a place where everyone loves to sing along at the top of their voices.’ Ross Learmonth, Prime Circle.

‘Lekkerland Carnival is the place where you go to feel LOVED!’ Pedro Barbosa.


‘My idea of #lekkerrr is to have my guitar in hand, playing for a super fun audience.’ Elandré.
