The KKNK has a new image for the 22nd festival, that will take place in Oudtshoorn from Thursday, 24 to Wednesday, 30 March 2016.

“The red image that the KKNK was known for over the past ten years, is replaced by blue, inspired by the colour of our mountains and skyline,” says Rhodé Snyman, CEO of Kunste Onbeperk, the company that presents the KKNK.

This new corporate identity, with the distinctive KKNK elements at its core, will soon be visible over all the festival’s platforms.

The KKNK will be presented over seven days in 2016 and the Easter weekend (Friday, 25 to Monday, 28 March) will be utilised in an optimal way. According to Snyman, research indicates that festival visitors spend an average of six days at the KKNK. “This new format allows us to have a greater offering available on days that most of people visit the festival.”

Although the festival boasts a new identity, Absa, a member of Barclays, already confirmed their support of the festival for the next three years. “We are extremely pleased that Absa will be continuing as a key KKNK sponsor as the festival has enjoyed tremendous growth over the years owing to the bank’s support. We certainly look forward to taking the festival to new heights with Absa’s continued sponsorship,” says Snyman.

Bobby Malabie, Group Executive for Marketing and Corporate Relations at Barclays Africa, says  “as sponsors, we know that we’ve added considerable value in enhancing the KKNK over the past 12 years and we look forward to helping the festival prosper in the years ahead”.


The programme will be launched in November, with tickets on sale from the end of November. This will ensure that visitors can plan their KKNK visit sooner than ever before.
