Wolfkop Weekender returns to the breathtaking depths of Citrusdal this month with their season opener - 'Power Flower Picnic'

Wolfkop Weekender – Cape Town’s best-kept party secret returns to the breathtaking depths of Citrusdal this month with their season opener – ‘Power Flower Picnic.’ Hidden deep within the Citrusdal Valley, past the orange groves and down by a lush river is a jewel of a venue and home to Wolfkop Weekender’s summer series of events.

This spring Wolfkop kicks off with their groovy gathering the ‘Power Flower Picnic.’ The gathering will take place in the rolling greens of Wolfkop’s camping village when the orange groves are heaving with bounty. The weekend combines the essence of a camping getaway with a grass-roots festival experience. As the wildflowers bask in the glory of the early spring-sun and run like blankets of colour across the fields; Wolfkop invites you to welcome back the warmer season with their annual celebration on the Olifant’s riverbank.

This year, Power Flower Picnic will kick off on the 20 September and run through until Tuesday 24 September (Heritage Day). The music will play from Friday afternoon to Sunday night as usual and feature a fantastically curated lineup of local talent such as; Culoe De Song, Bruno Morphet, Cthulhu, Fabio, JAY ME, and more. Their international headliner, Mark Flynn aka The Drifter is a DJ and producer and the Co-Owner of the record label Maeve.

Born in Ireland but based in Berlin this incredibly versatile artist, found his passion for electronic music after an upbringing dabbling in different musical pursuits; from bands and choirs to folk and traditional music. Flynn‘s love for electronic music was born from many ventures into the Dublin nightlife scene and a move to Berlin ensued soon after.

Guests attending Wolfkop Weekender: Power Flower Picnic 2019 are also invited to stay for an extended long weekend – meaning an additional day and night to see out the festival in a restorative style. Festival attendees can look forward to a scrumptious lunchtime braai on Monday after the hurry-up-and-stay Sunday session in the boma. “There are a couple of amazing hikes in the area, that you’re unlikely to have ventured on during the festivals and that we highly recommend,” the organisers say, “The stars are just the craziest thing out there – so don’t forget to take a quiet moment and look up!”

The Drifter
