In less than three years, Bazique Festival has firmly established itself as South Africa’s most original and exciting, large-scale festival of performing art and was even voted ‘World’s Best Boutique Festival ‘ at the Tuvalu International Festival Awards. Bazique offers dancers and art lovers spectacular installations to muse over, art-cars, art-boats, pop-up exhibitions, and astronomical lineups of musical talent all served with a smorgasbord of the unexpected!
The festival is the brainchild of a groundbreaking collective of creative minds – Cape Town Electronic Music Festival, Wolfkop Weekender, Sexy Groovy Love, Bridges for Music, Diskotekah, ToyToy and Into the Wild Experience – who are all passionate about experiential art, music and community.

Bazique Festival 2020 will be hosted once more at The Elgin Grabouw Country Club, just a short road trip from Cape Town. The breathtaking, 400-hectare space and its centrepiece swimming lake surrounded by rolling mountains and white sand beaches has fast become one of our favourite festival venues in the country.
The 2020 edition of Bazique Festival will feature local and international talent performing over three days across four spectacular, art immersive stages plus a silent disco and an elusive new stage in the middle of the lake (Journey’s End Island) – so pack that lilo baby!
Last week organisers announced eight headline acts which include six international DJs and two local stars; Marcus Worgull (DE), TERR (BRA), Shimza, Madmotormiquel (DE), Ticon (SWE), Freudenthal of Pardon Moi (DE), Floyd Lavine and The Head Gardener (UK).
After a short yet much-anticipated wait, Bazique Festival have finally released the full lineup for their 3-day reverie of art, music and surreal shenanigans! Take a look at the sweltering list of confirmed musical talent below. For more information join the event online and visit the official Bazique Festival website to book tickets and more!
