Electric Vines 2015


The Electric Vines New Years Eve Festival is ON and this years the event is going to dance them vines electric in a whole new way; with an incredible new venue alongside the Bot River, insane sound and stage production, three music stages, world-class camping and of course, a slew of the finest performers South Africa has to offer.

This year, Cath Grenfell, a South African music powerhouse and our hostess with the most ROCK! is partnering with us to curate this year’s stellar line up.

“I really enjoyed Working on Electric Vines last year and felt that I could get more involved this year and go back to my production roots. So I was very excited to get on board to help with artists and production for Electric Vines 2015.” Cath says. “I truly believe in this festival and feel that it will grow into one of the biggest New Year’s festivals in the country.”

Our first phase of artists has been announced and we’re beyond excited at the calibre of live acts and artists who are joining us to while-away the last days and hours of 2015 – and blow our senses with epic live performances!

GOLDFISH will headline the festival on 30th December, dropping their freshest tracks to celebrate the year-end on a gold note, and Mi Casa will ring in the New Year on 31 December with their unmistakable groove and infectious soul!


Other acts include Desmond and the Tutus, PHFat, The Kiffness, Shortstraw, Al Bairre, Red Tape Riot, Veranda Panda, Niskerone and Dean Fuel. We can’t wait to hear these phenomenal artists booming over the Main Stage system.


With Just 3 months to go before the year 2015 comes to a close – it’s time rally the troops, arm yourself with tickets, and countdown the days until we meet deep in the vines for 2 days and 2 nights of sun-shiny electric revelry!

Check out the line up confirmed for Electric Vines NYE Festival 2015 – and there are loads more on the way!

Electric Vines 2015 will be hosted at the magnificent Wildekrans Wine Estate, just 90km’s from Cape Town and 30km’s from Hermanus, making the destination an easy 50 minute drive and accessible to all.

Wildekrans Wine Estate is a picturesque 1000 hectares of lush countryside nestled away in the beautiful Bot River Valley. The party will be situated alongside the Bot River and close to a swimming dam, where you can cool off from the blazing Cape Summer heat. This venue’s natural beauty is the perfect setting for the much- anticipated second instalment. Join us as we send out the year in Electric Vines style!

The hugely popular fashion group, ‘Cotton On’ has just been confirmed as an official sponsor to Electric Vines 2015. This exciting partnership will include in-store activations in selected Cape Town stores starting in October. Cotton On will also have a pop-up store at Electric Vines this year with some cool festival related goods as well as Electric Vines merchandise.


Last year’s Main Stage was a sight to behold with mountainous backdrops and equally monstrous sound. This year we will recreate the magnificence in our new Wildekrans Venue. Expect hair-raising performances with super-sonic surround sound, epic lighting and production effects. This is where you will be rocking out to the sounds of Goldfish LIVE, Desmond and The Tutu’s, Shortstraw, PH FAT, The Kiffness, Veranda Panda, Dean Fuel and SO MANY MORE.

Announcements are still rolling out, so keep posted!

The Acoustic Element

Something for those who like things a little more mellow yellow, a little more soulful, a little more man-meets-guitar and lady-meets-microphone. The Acoustic Stage will run each morning until late afternoon and entertain with a bevy of instrumental and unplugged performances. Here you can roll-out a picnic blanket and take in the day while the likes of Joshua Grierson and Grace De La Hunt whisk you away with evocative lyrics and deeply strummed tones.

More of this goodness to be announced, don’t stray too far.

Life’s a Beach Bar!

We are excited to introduce our new Beach Bar; a little piece of heaven we sliced off the island of Ibiza to bring you a serious dose of electric energy, for those who like their feet in the sand and the electronic beats in their hair. This is where you can shoot the breeze and take in a journey-full of electronic-based sounds while dipping in and out of the dam. The music will run the spectrum of deep, house, techno — and then some! — While a fully stocked bar will service your liquid refreshments all day long.

Stay tuned for some exciting announcements!

Dam Good Fun!

Only metres away from the Main Stage and campsite is the Beach Bar where festival goers can swim in the dam, cool off, have a drink and groove to our DJ line up.

Cool by the VIP pool

The VIP private pool area will be available to those festivalgoers who hold a VIP Pass. This area is an exclusive area, where you will be able to cool down away from the festival hub, take in a ray of sunshine on the loungers and yes, even order a cocktail from your own private bar. The VIP pool is the perfect place for a mid-party splash away from the maddening crowd.


The Beach Bar

The Beach Bar will be situated along side the Wildekrans dam, and will be open all afternoon. It will be the perfect spot for afternoon refreshments while listening to some fun electronic tunes and cooling off in the crystal dam.

The VIP Bar

The VIP Bar areas will be an exclusive bar area where VIP ticket holders are able to get their drink of choice with ease and speed. These two spots will be conveniently located within the party so that all aspects of EV can be experienced from within the area.

The Main Bar

The Main Bar areas will be open to all EV festivalgoers all day and night. The bars will be fully stocked with all your favourite drinks, and are strategically placed around the festival to ensure that queues do not build up making the ordering process quick and pain-free.


Campers may bring their own alcohol however this can only be consumed in the vicinity of the campsite. So drinks will be allowed to leave the camp area, but we’ll have plenty of cold ones available at the multiple bars around the venue.

We have something special in store for your food requirements. Make a meal of it or grab some sustenance on-the-go to keep your tummy fuelled with tasty fare and nutritious food options for everyone. Details of our feast-filled food garden will follow soon.


Due to restrictions from the Western Cape Liquor Authority, no under 18’s will be allowed at Electric Vines 2015. We will notify guests should this change. 
Unfortunately due to the nature of the festival we regret to inform that no children or pets will be permitted to enter the premises.
