The Programme - Windhoek Oktoberfest

Fest Beer

The opening of the keg will take place on Friday 02 November. With the exclamation “O`zapft is!” (“It`s tapped!”), the first beer is handed to the mayor or representative of the city, who then declares the Windhoek Oktoberfest in Cape Town officially open.  This is a special "Festbier" exclusively brewed for the Oktoberfest by Brew Master, Christian Müller.  This authentic German beer is brewed according to the Reinheitsgebot, the 1516 Bavarian Purity Law.

An interesting note is that NBL offers a special training program to become a certified skilled German brewer craftsman. This entails a 3-4 years in-house training in all fields of brewing and includes German lessons covering reading, speaking and writing. A 6-month full scholarship in Germany to become a certified German brewer follows which enables brewers to work all over the world. Bachelor and Master Studies can subsequently also be obtained in Munich, Ulm or Berlin.

Main Band

The Kirchdorfer band

They have been the official band in the "Hacker-Festzelt" at the Oktoberfest in Munich since 1994 and we are thrilled to once again have this legendary band perform at the Windhoek Oktoberfest in Cape Town. The Kirchdorfer band has also completed 100 tours in 17 countries thus far.

Supporting Act

Die Broers

Over-and-above the Kirchdorfer band, we are thrilled to announce that local celebrities, Die Broers made up of Snyman brothers Christo, Cobus and Stephan will be performing on Friday 2nd  and Saturday 3rd November.  Well-known for their hit with "Huistoe" (meaning Home in Afrikaans) in 2008 for which they won "Best Song of the Year" in the Tempo Awards, get ready to party the day away with great entertainment!

Schuhplattler Dancers

Schuhplattler is a traditional style of folk dance from Bavaria and Tyrol. In this male-only dance, the performers stomp, clap and strike the soles of their shoes (Schuhe), thighs and knees with their hands held flat (platt).  Fun fact: a man can only be part of the group whilst a bachelor.

Traditional Food

It’s hard to compete with hearty melt-in-your-mouth German dishes which complement your beer perfectly.  Hartlief, well known for its comprehensive variety of high-quality meats will be serving up traditional specialities bringing the taste of the Munich Festival right to your door-step.  Look forward to traditional ‘Eisbein, Bratwurst mit Sauerkraut und Senf’ and roast chicken, to mention but a few. 

Activities on the Saturday

Typical to a traditional fair, there will also be lots of games including "Stamm-sägen" (Log-Sawing), "Bierstemmen" (Beer-Lifting), "Hau den Lukas" (High Striker), Nageln, Beer Pong and Catty shooting. 

Kids Area

Kids will be able to enjoy a wide variety of fun-filled activities catering for all ages.  Physical jumping and climbing options will be on offer as well as face-painting, arts and crafts. Parents can relax in full eye-view of their kids in a shaded area with close proximity to the music.

Cashless Card Wristbands

We will be running a cashless event this year and will be making use of cashless wristbands that can be purchased on arrival and loaded with spending funds. Any funds that are not used can be claimed via the website and will be reimbursed to the client.
