The Event

***  VDUB CAMP FESTIVAL 2016  ***
 
Vdub Camp Fest is the biggest South African annual event for enthusiasts of all things German.
The pilgrimage attracts thousands of people who love extraordinary cars, modern entertainment and the outdoor lifestyle.
This two day event is a highlight on the national social and motor industry calendar, and a benchmark for other car shows in Africa.
 
...............................
 

The first weekend of February is our annual tradition to pay respect to our unique Volkswagen creations.
 
Supporters and lovers of the VAG scene have a choice of visiting the show for a day (either Sat 6th Feb or Sun 7th Feb).
Or even better yet spend the entire weekend with fellow Vdub enthusiasts in your preference of camping or accommodation.
 
This year the organizers had a near impossible task of finding a venue that is larger than the previous ATKV Buffelspoort for the 2016 chapter of the event. After several weeks of searching a newly refurbished gem known as Eagle Waters Resort on the southern tip of Hartbeespoort Dam was found and secured for what will be the largest edition of the Vdub Camp Fest show.
 
The enormous Eagle Waters Resort stretches a total length of 3,6km along the dam’s scenic water edge, with 1,7km of that waterfront dedicated to the actual show area and the remainder along camping and accommodation space.


Notwithstanding the large space of this venue, organizers had to include accommodation at various nearby resorts to cater for the huge demand that the event has established. The previously hosted Hartbeespoort Resort will cater for additional campers once the initial main venue space is sold out. The Orion Venue Hotel as well as Amanzingwe Holiday Resort will cater for patrons who prefer more upmarket standards of accommodation. The massive Magaliespark Resort on the north of the dam will also join in catering for chalet visitors at the final stage of ticket releases in November.
To end off the list of venues involved is the Majestic Waters Villa which is suitable to cater for the larger crew that travels from far and wishes its members to all stay over at a single point. All accommodation destinations and pictures disclosing exact distances to the show area will be posted on social media platforms for ticket buyers’ perusal.
 
In essence the 2k16 Camp Fest event is taking place across the entire Hartbeespoortdam region. The show has grown to such an extent that there is no single venue that can accommodate the mass of people and vehicles attending therefore all future installments of the event is likely to see the main show hosted at one venue, with accommodation spread across the surrounding town.
 
The various Scirocco accommodation ticket holders and GTI camping ticket holders will have their own gate for entry /exit. While Vivo Day-visitors will have a separate entrance gate much the same as the 2015 event. Despite the fact that the high volumes of arrivals do result in moderate and inevitable traffic at entrances, event attendees have found that traffic congestion at the most recent event has substantially improved and the organizers will continue their efforts to reduce the bottleneck effect.
 
The Eagle Waters Resort has well maintained camping facilities, with a reasonable amount of trees for shade. The camp sites are powered (by means of the usual campers power plug) and most have braai stands available. Naturally the best sites are occupied on a first come first served bases so supporters are encouraged to arrive early to choose their preferences of sites.
 
Owners of cherished show cars will be pleased that the venue internal roads are well maintained and the main road leading past the Show And Shine area is tarred so passing traffic will produce minimal dust. The stage and competition itself does however take place on a lawn turf, Camp Fest is after all popular precisely because of the outdoor atmosphere and the green surroundings that most people are not able to enjoy back at their city offices throughout the year!
 
The renowned competition will feature a few new categories from 300 competing vehicles and will establish the best cars for the year ahead. The Best Of show winner and partner for 2016 will be winning a trip to the largest global VAG gathering at a town called Reifnitz in Austria. The level of competition at the next show can be expected to be tight to say the least. It is suggested that you get your passport ready if you have any intention of entering and grabbing the ultimate trophy on the SA scene.
 
Visitors can expect various sponsored live demos and debut displays, unveiling of the latest industry products and innovative Camp Fest activities. Keep a look out for the Streetfighter Champion Edition inspired concept at the next show!
Details regarding a first time rally motorsport concept will also be announced at a later date.
 
Eagle Waters offers a pool for the accommodation area, two pools for the camping area and one pool for the day visitor area. Organizers will have some additional inflatable slides and outdoor activities brought in for adults and children over Camp Fest weekend.

The event judging and entertainment lineup will once again include international personalities in line with the high standards from past shows.

The 2016 Camp Fest afterparty or "Afterfest" is being hosted as a beach party with impressive line-array sound and lighting.
The entertainment includes a variety of celebrity acts that will be performing from the one-of-a-kind Amsterdam VW Golf build DJ booth.

Another flagship attraction is the Wolfsburg car which will be given away to one lucky supporter, and we will be announcing details of the 2016 vehicle within the next 2 months. For now rest assured that it is something watercooled and a fairly recent model ;)


Camp Fest 2k16 has many surprises in the making and more info will be announced ahead of the event.
 
Keep visiting our social media for updates, and keep an eye on various local print media for further announcements.
