 ***  VDUB CAMP FESTIVAL 2018  ***
 
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 3rd Feb or Sun 4th 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 being the 10th anniversary of the event, the stunning Warmbaths Forever Resort was secured for what will be the most spectacular pilgrimage of the Vdub Camp Fest show.
 
Widely recognized as one of the very best camping holiday resorts in the country, the enormous Warmbaths Resort falls in an approximate 6 squared km of picturesque land within a 12km scenic Hetbad Nature Reserve perimeter. The venue is a sister resort to the previous Badplaas location and hailed by many tourism establishments as one of the most outstanding leisure destinations in South Africa. The Camp Fest 2018 show will enjoy the striking backdrop of the Warmbaths Island Lake.

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.

Warmbaths 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 2018 Camp Fest social afterparty or "Afterfest" is being hosted as an outdoor 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 2018 vehicle by November this year.

Camp Fest 2k18 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.

A: The Afterfest takes place on Saturday evening from 18h00 to 00h00. All residents (on-site and off-site accommodation visitors) as well as GTI campers get access. Sadly all Polo day-visitors have to leave the resort by 5pm and will not be allowed to attend the Afterfest.
 
Q: How many cars are allowed to enter the Show And Shine competition?
A: The judging panel scrutinizes roughly 400 vehicle pre-registration entries beforehand. Approximately 160 of those are shortlisted as successful contestants to display their vehicles at the motorshow. Ultimately 30 of the vehicles that have then been judged on the main stage will be selected as category winners, with 1 finalist being crowned Best Of Show for the current season.

Q: I want to display my car at Show & Shine how do I enter? 
A: The Show & Shine pre-registration takes place via the event website submission as from 1 November to 12 January.
Note that all resident visitors can take their car into the venue but not all visitors can display a car at the Show & Shine competition space.
Pre-registration means that your car will go through a selection process with a panel of judges before the actual event, and only successful applicants who the judges deem fit to compete are given a registration approval.
All submissions do receive either a "successful" or an "unsuccessful" registration notification via email before the show.
Approved vehicles will receive a dash board (official Vdub Camp Fest contestant) display form by 26 January 2018.

Q: What other activities happen at the motorshow?
A: The Sound-Off, Low Limbo, Dyno and other motorshow related programme content will be announced ahead of the event. The entertainment line-up will also be detailed on the event social media at regular monthly intervals.

Q: The Amarok crew camping venue is really interesting. Can I pay it off in stages?
A: Unfortunately all attendance tickets need to be paid once off in full. We suggest collecting the portions from crew members as quick as you can and then paying for the ticket either via EFT or at your nearest Standard Bank branch. Purchasing of any event tickets needs to be done as early as possible because Camp Fest tickets do sell out very fast.

Q: Why do festival tickets cost more than a normal visit to the venue at another time of the year?
A: The festival is an expensive special event to host. The exclusivity of the venue for the motorshow requires substantial upfront funding and the national laws for extraordinary large events (the Gatherings Act and the Sports & Recreation Act) dictates that a significant amount of expensive logistical changes need to be made at the venue for the congregation of a large crowd.
Further factors are the costly audio visual setups and the unique main stage, the Wolfsburg giveaway car and show prizes which include an international trip, the Afterfest entertainment, the vast security deployment, safety officers and medical standby services, licenses and structural certifications, public liability insurance and event attorney services, additional ablution and sanitation, access control fencing and bar code scanning equipment, VIP areas, marquees and furniture, the Amsterdam DJ vehicle, Dyno and Sound-off service providers, event memorabilia and souvenirs for supporters, print and media advertising, there are outsourced services that are too many to list here.
Note must also be made that the festival takes a full 12 months of planning, equipment and physical work every year and this requires resources that is not possible to accomplish at zero cost.
Lastly, it would be a tragedy to provide nil support to the charities who desperately rely on the support that the event provides to the orphanages annually. So while organizers always keep ticket prices to the lowest possible rate, the brand does depend on a marginal increase to make the objective of hosting an awesome festival achievable.

Q: I would like to arrive earlier than Friday, or leave Warmbaths later than Sunday. Is it possible to do this?
A: Supporters are welcome to book for additional days to prolong their stay. This can be done by getting an Extended Service plan ticket on Quicket and then calling the venue to book additional days directly with their reservations desk. They will coordinate a stay at your selected accommodation unit or camp stand throughout the festival period.
You may book without the Extended ticket, however you would have to depart from the venue on Friday morning at their stipulated checkout time (11h00) and then join the outside cue to enter the venue under your separate event tickets. The Extended ticket therefore offers a discounted rate for your additional days as well as a seamless stay at the resort.

Q: I really enjoy Camp Fest and never miss it. Is there anything different happening for the tenth anniversary show?
A: Firstly the outstanding venue offers an all new experience for supporters. Secondly the organizers always have a few surprises in the event programme to make it a memorable festival. We can’t give away too much information beforehand otherwise it wouldn’t be a surprise ;)
