Plus1 Festival: 2017 – A Matrimonious Affair


Plus1 isn’t your typical art meets music kind of fest. No, this is a love story so unique, a happily ever after you’ve never seen in any RomCom. Plus1 is a marriage of different forms of media and expression, a celebration of people and most importantly, an ODE to Love and living well. All these good vibes are set to take place in the beautiful backdrop of Franschhoek, at a picturesque venue established in 1699 that is now, quite suitably, a wedding venue. The beautiful La Paris Estate.

Not only does the dreamy venue and incredible line up (With the likes of; The Kiffness, GoodLuck, Mi Casa and DJ LoveBirds form Berlin who will be headlining in SA for the very first time at this cosmic union) have us totally amped but the concept and list of curated activities has definitely got our attention. The three stages, rightfully named; Something Old, Something Borrowed and Something New will offer live local and international musicians as well as live Performance Art pieces, Industry Speakers, Chef Tutorials and much more. Festival goers can expect a Kinky Disco take over to kick off the festival on Friday night as well as a Secret Sunrise and Yoga session early Saturday morning. Carnival like characters and performers are said to come alive throughout and all over the festival grounds. There will also be a host of various bespoke markets and exhibitions showcasing some of South Africa’s finest Artists and Artisans. Sunday celebrations will include a picnic and pool party and it doesn’t end there. Whether you’re, single, married, looking or just looking to crash, Plus1 aims to unify people of all statuses as well marry music, design and art of all kinds in a glamorous, one of a kind, World Class boutique festival of Love.

Everything has been finely curated right down to your camping experience ranging from the “First Date” standard camping package right through all the stages of love to the “Honeymoon” glamping package. VIPs can expect high end perks like exclusive use swimming pools, lounges and a late night Silent Disco.
