We chat to Hippie Mafia ahead of their set at the very first Love & Light Festival in Joburg this weekend


Johannesburg psy-trance duo, Hippie Mafia (Josh Schachat and Daniel Peimer) will take the stage this weekend at Love & Light‘s very first festival in Johannesburg. The eccentric pair’s music combines playful harmonics and bouncy basslines that are perfect for a wild daytime adventure on the dancefloor.

“We have been to a couple of the Cape Town Love & Light’s and have been following the brand since inception. We feel extremely honoured to be a part of the first Love and Light Johannesburg, especially playing alongside such prestigious international and local talent,” the duo said when asked about performing at the first Love & Light JHB.

The festival will take place this Saturday at Ground in Muldersdrift with international PSY-trance legends, Morten Granau and Symphonix headlining the event. Hippie Mafia will feature as one of the incredible local supporting acts. While the duo is known for their hard-hitting progressive beats, Hippie Mafia plans to bring more groove and bounce to their set this weekend, “We are very familiar with the style and sound of Morten & Symphonix and we want to ensure that there is a smooth flow between sets.”

“We really love the vibe and the daytime element that these parties bring to the scene. Love & Light Johannesburg is going to be a one of a kind experience with fresh and vibrant energy, groovy beats and epic production.”

Catch Hippie Mafia live at the first Love & Light Johannesburg taking place this weekend, 13 April at the breathtaking Ground, in Mudlersdrift. The event is offering transport to and from the venue on their exclusive Love Bus.
