***  VDUB CAMP FESTIVAL 2017  ***
 
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 has become the annual tradition to pay respect to our unique Volkswagen creations.
 
Supporters and aficionados of the VAG scene have a choice of visiting the show for a single day (either Sat 4th Feb or Sun 5th Feb) or even better yet spend the entire weekend with fellow Vdub enthusiasts in your preference of camping or accommodation.
 
The organizers are routinely tasked with finding venues that are suitable for the large demand of public attendance and the enormous volume of vehicles that require access to the show.
Meticulous sifting through the country’s landscape is done on a yearly basis to provide a venue that is fitting for each chapter of the motorshow. This year the stunning award winning gem of Badplaas Forever Resorts was found and secured for what will be the most spectacular pilgrimage of the Vdub Camp Fest show.
 
The enormous Badplaas Resort covers an approximate 90 hectares of picturesque land within a 4km scenic perimeter. The venue is hailed by many tourism establishments as one of the most outstanding leisure destinations in South Africa and the Camp Fest 2017 show will enjoy the striking mountain backdrop of the Hlumuhlumu Reserve.

The Forever Resort Group has very well maintained camping facilities, with a substantial amount of trees for shade. The camp sites are powered (by means of the usual campers power plug) and all have braai stands, taps and refuse bins available. There is a vast amount of luxury chalets and accommodation available for visitors to enjoy.
 
Owners of cherished show cars will be pleased that the venue internal roads are well maintained and the Show And Shine exhibition takes place on a large grass turf. The renowned competition will feature a few new categories from 400 competing vehicles and will establish the best cars for the year ahead. The level of competition and project built cars at the next show can be expected to be even more remarkable than past instalments of the motorshow.
 
Visitors can expect various sponsored live demos and debut displays, unveiling of the latest industry products and innovative Camp Fest activities.
 Badplaas offers a large volume of pristine indoor and outdoor swimming pools and water slides for the supporters’ perusal. There is a wide selection of amenities and facilities to enjoy.

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

The 2017 Camp Fest afterparty or "Afterfest" is being hosted as a semi indoor affair with impressive line-array sound and intelligent lighting.
The entertainment includes a variety of celebrity acts that will be performing from the one-of-a-kind Amsterdam VW themed 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 2017 vehicle by November this year.

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.

# MAIN EVENT GUIDELINES:

GTI camping sites are adequate for maximum 8 persons and event allocation is for a minimum of 6 persons. Should you be only 2 or 3 friends attending as campers then we do reserve the right to ask you to share the large 12 meter stands with other GTI ticket holders. The Badplaas venue has space to comfortably accommodate the planned full capacity of Vdub enthusiasts provided that stands are not occupied by less than 6 people.
Note that the GTI ticket entitles the visitor to full event access, Wolfsburg car draw and camping space only. All camping equipment, tents and sleeping gear must be supplied by the visitor himself/ herself. Only suitable, recognized tents, caravans and motor homes are allowed to camp in the caravan park. Sleeping in cars and bakkies are not allowed.
Take note that all camping sites have power points and require a male 3-pin caravan plug for use, which is available from the resort shops. Note that specific camp stands cannot be reserved in advance, please ensure that you arrive early to select your preference of sites if needed.
Every general event ticket holder in 2017 stands a chance of winning the Wolfsburg car! No additional or separate ticket purchase is required. Should a supporter wish to increase their chances of winning then they are welcome to purchase optional Wolfsburg Chrome Plus tickets. Revenue from the Wolfsburg project build supports 6 charity homes annually.
Please note that it is policy for the various Badplaas accommodation units be occupied according to their quota eg; 4 sleepers require 4 persons, and 6 sleepers require 6 persons for bookings. A supporter may therefore not book a 4 sleeper unit for only 1, 2 or 3 people at a discount. Full capacity for chalets, log cabins or hotel rooms must be purchased even if all the beds in a unit are not occupied.
All chalet accommodation is self-catering and there are general stores, food vendors and/or restaurants on site for catering and common supplies. Food vendors at the show area include halaal.
