The Opening Ceremony
We are thrilled to see internationally renowned sound healer Kailash Kokopelli at Origin this year. He will perform the opening ceremony on Friday at 18h30. Kokopelli is a leading pioneer in exploring the healing effect of sound since before the turn of the millennium. The multi-instrumentalist is recognized as a cross-cultural bridge-maker, medicine person and humanitarian artist working with indigenous people around the planet.
World-Class Headliners Across Three Floors
ORIGIN 2019 will host three floors. The main stage will serve up an eclectic range of full power psytrance, accompanied by the BEATS floor, hosting an array of tech beats as well as the DEEP CHILL area – a special dancefloor/space dedicated to getting your chill on. Attendees can look forward to over 45 local and international performances- the Main Stage will host the likes of Circuit Breakers, Burn in Noise and Dickster while the BEAST floor presents one of the most exciting techno lineups we’ve seen in a while with headliners Josephine Wedekind and Guy J confirmed. View the full lineup below.
The Incredible Venue
Elandskloof Guest Farm, Helderstroom is the home of ORIGIN Festival. Tucked away between Villiersdorp and Greyton, and just a short road-trip away from Cape Town, this lush green valley with its fresh mountain streams, welcoming forest filled with Oaks, YellowWoods and Redwoods; and towering mountain backdrops will once again be your home for the weekend. Please remember to LEAVE NO TRACE and take back home what you bring with you and dispose of it there. The farm must be respected. Please treat it as such and keep it clean.
Awesome Festival Features
Origin is more than just a music festival. Artists from all walks of life have been invited to join the festival and share their craft. Whether it’s the visionary art gallery that will display amazing artwork from some of the most talented local and international visionary artists to The Deep Chill space that features lazy beats, yoga, mind-expanding talks – ORIGIN Festival has something for everyone.
‘Just Rock Up’ will also host a stall at the event which will sell a variety of camping necessities as well as swimming inflatables for attendees who did not pre-order theirs. Other than their world-class psytrance production, below is a comprehensive list of all the awesome ‘extras’ party-goers can look forward to at ORIGIN 2019.
