The simple question of what is “Bazique” is asked and with that has given rise to one of the most innovative festivals of 2018 thus far. A verb standing for: THRILLED, EXHILARATED, HAPPY, DELIGHTED, OVERJOYED, EXCITED, ANIMATED, JUBILANT, BESIDE ONESELF WITH GLEE, EXULTANT, EUPHORIC, ECSTATIC… it is a collaboration of some of the most vibrant event-coordinators and brand to give us creativity in its purest form… FREEDOM.

5 THINGS TO LOOK OUT FOR
We see a push for the normally abnormality in things with a viewpoint focused on allowing people to find their inner “Cheshire Cat”. Not a play on any previous locally based entities, a few hours in the commotion of people doing what they feel they should do with out any real madness will give people a real good idea of how setting free can change your vision of the world.
Two very anticipated acts sourced locally and internationally have the honour of journeying patrons from dark till dawn in the sunrise sessions on The Protea Stage both Friday & Saturday. Two hours each doesn’t seem like enough but we won’t be complaining as we get to see this LIVE.
CREATIVITY ON MAX
People are given the opportunity to really “spread their wings” and find their inner artiste for this one. We urge that you try and find comfort in whatever you do as the aim of the gathering is not to stand out but to stand out together… Whether you plan to dress up or dress down… Keep it classy and comfy and enjoy the atomsphere brought upon by the venue and journey.
FRIDAY STARTED OFF THE RIGHT WAY
Theres not much one can say apart from stating the roster of what we get to see on Friday. PH Fat are on the main stage before Jimmy Nevis and local legend Dane Stirrat takes Corona afternoon duties beach-side alongside the likes of Fosta & Dusty Human. The Protea gives us Lady M and &Me on Friday as well with Speedsta, Toby2Shoes & Bhashkar Lee also holding down things on the Art Car, Frisky Disco & La Fee Verte stages respectively.
FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION
Arsing about is the phrase of the weekend with alot of the experiences based on patrons freedom. The biggest pieces being Dance Duels & Mermaid Workshops to kind of help people see that this is not your usual vibe. In essence, Bazique Festival wants you to find your inner being and giving you the freedom to do this with a minimal amount of limitation may end up being fruitful. The freedom of expression is the basis of what this organization wants to showcase and the only way you will know what its about is if you pull up and pull in. They will invite you with open arms…
