SPARK /spärk/ n. meaning:
A sensational two-day, two-dance floor Music & Arts Festival brought to Cape Town by the quixotic creators of The Spirit Train from Afrikaburn and Train Parties by Make-Believe.
In their unerring dedication to delivering soul-pounding parties, impeccable talent and amazing vibes, mega soundsystems and a mesmerising tribe of DJ legends, the experimental community that created Africa’s first biggest mutant Spirit Train will host SPARK Arts & Music Festival over one the festive season, 27-28 December.
After countless years of arranging epic entertainment events and fertile platforms for creative seed-sowing, SPARK organisers are set to display their collaborative wealth of technical, practical & musical craftsmanship – engineering a lush musical and artistic landscape complete with fantastical installations and mutant vehicles.
The Festival’s unique ‘Leave NO Trace’ venue is situated just 45kms from Cape Town (between Paarl & Stellenbosch) on a nature reserve fittingly chosen with the legacy of conservation and radical-responsible partying in mind … and it truly is a gem (more details to be revealed shortly)!
Featuring an ‘island as the central dance-floor and surrounded by swimming water, mountains and stars – a video-mapping, lighting and fire display by night will complement the sheer beauty of this incredible venue.
Festival participants will experience a carefully-crafted landscape of sound over two floors – from dub, funk and experimental beats to the deep ‘n twisted house & techno grooves. 9 Live Acts and 28 DJ’s – including Andi Dill, Metro Ticket and international music men – Nico Sun and Luke Redford. Plus many, many more.
Camping out is part of the SPARK experience – and is free. The venue boasts a wide stretch of shaded camping under a beautiful, tall canopy of Eucalyptus trees that flank the main festival area.
Other festival features will include a fully stocked bar – complete with Snapscan payment option, food trucks and sushi bars and a cell-phone charging station.
