The Earthdance Experience


In the next 24-48 hours South Africa will be hit with one of the largest outdoor events in terms of brand reach and over the four main locations, dancers can expect a global experience, as each has its own unique journey.

Mother nature becomes the face of these events with a theme based on the simple aspect of “RE-EVOLUTION”. This is your captain Gonzo #ReportingForDuty with an introduction to the pioneer behind the “Prayer For Peace”… EARTHDANCE.

2017 comes with the opportunity for everyone to get involved by reaching four different points in South Africa; namely Cape Town, Johannesburg, Nelson Mandela Bay (PE) & Durban.

A refreshing twist on proceedings where each gathering has its own unique flavor we take a deeper look into each by showcasing what each event has to offer.

CAPE TOWN

We go back to Nekkies in Worcester for this one with the Boden’s from Flipside taking over the reins. They have received a warm welcome with the announcement of internationals Space Cat, Off Limits & CoExist. A pinnacle part of the psytrance calendar in Cape Town, we expect only the best from the new heads of command as they have proved themselves time and time again.

NELSON MANDELA BAY

Commonly referred to as ED PE or ED of the Garden Route, a much smaller gathering which still packs quite a punch being powered by the team from Vortex Trance Adventures. The NMB ED organizers have called upon the services of SA favorites to formulate their roster and have come up with a lineup which could be one for the books.

An area which has struggled to find its outdoor footing as of late, the launching of ED DBN brings hope to a community which needed the boost. A step in the right direction, it can only go up from here. We hope to see the Durban faithful supporting the cause and growing the psytrance community over in that part of the country. We’re really excited to see how this event turns out.
