The Sunflower Festival ft. Captain Hook / Orca / Magneto / Class A [Win Tickets]


The Sunflower.

A symbol of spiritual faith, so regarded for it’s worship of the sun as it stares blindly towards the life giving rays each day, following the suns path across the sky.

As our earth to turns once again, towards the sun, and winter begins to fade, we are reminded of what this uniquely beautiful tribal symbol represents – life and faith, healing and nourishment, spiritual knowing and magic, longevity and vitality, light and balance.

We celebrate our rebirth from a time of reflection and introspection and invite you to be part of the Sunflower Festival as we channel the energy accumulated over winter, allowing it flow from our core, into the universe as we connect with the seasons change and coming of Spring.

A connection through music, through dance and through ceremony. A connection with your inner child and the dreams you have yet to live.A connection through love, through joy but in harmony with each other and peace with who we are.

Be part of our communal call to Gaia as we prepare the space with drumming energy in a meditative opening ceremony and join us as we look towards the sun, becoming part of the next amazing chapter in the beautiful cycle of creation and acknowledge the miracle of life, in so doing honouring our existence and the existence all the eternal life force that connects us.

This is the first day of Spring!

This is the Sunflower Festival!

Two days and 1 night of thundering basslines, retina melting visuals, amazing psychedelic decor, massive audio visual production, sensational international artists, some of Cape Towns most sought after afts – and a musical progression fit to usher in a new beginning.

Rumoured to have the blue-prints for Krang's TechnoDrome, stolen straight from Dimension X, he’s the type of guy who exudes so much coolness that he adds whole countries on Facebook at one time instead of just people. Always up for a party and a Tequila shot or two this is the guy who we always call first, both before and after a night out…
