Bazique Family Tree
Secret Garden Party
Roundly regarded as one of the world’s greatest ever boutique festivals, a ground-breaking bastion of outlandish ideas and iconoclastic revelry… a masterpiece of English absurdism and no handbrake fun.
The Garden Party’s top creative (and possibly idiot) savants are ensuring that the Department of Arsing About are true to their name, bringing 15 years of passion and original ideas to ensure Bazique is a show never seen on these shores before.
Wolfkop Weekender was born in mid 2013 when a farmer and a DJ met at a dinner party. By the beginning of the next year the first event was underway and 120 people gathered in the orchards for the first time, dancing and swimming in front of a tiny stage that played host to five friends and DJ’s from Cape Town. Ten festivals later and Wolfkop has established it’s self as a content contender on the SA festival circuit, doing two riverside festivals and one dessert town festival a year.
Driven by a purest desire to deliver nothing but the very best electronic music and an incomparable sensory experience, the team behind Wolfkop has put heart and soul into colouring every little corner of their productions. This and an independent outlook on how a festival should run gives their events an atmosphere that feels homely whether it’s your first or your tenth time attending, an atmosphere created as much by the people who attend as the people who put it on. Summer, winter and spring events annually.
Cape Town Electronic Music Festival
Diskotekah is a conceptual brand that seeks to cultivate an alternative creative scene in South Africa.
The event, which was originally established to fill the gap in the local queer scene, has developed into a outlet for creatives to express themselves through various forms including music, fashion, art and drag!
The inspiration for Diskotekah is an immersive party experience set in a post-apocalyptic paradise and can best be described as an art installation set to techno music.
Diskotekah is committed to cultivating an authentic community of individuals regardless of age, race, religion, sexuality or gender identity.
The goal of Diskotekah is to allow those people liberal in self-expression an opportunity to escape from reality for a little while, while encouraging others to think about how they represent themselves to the world.
Our advice? Throw a little glitter on it!
Sexy Groovy Love
Summer is as close to paradise as it gets. The burn of the sun, the cool, refreshing touch of water, and the positive sizzle in the air make our spirits rise, bringing out the party-lover within all of us. It’s this atmosphere we crave, it’s the euphoric vibe that makes us come together.
Sexy Groovy Love is a boutique festival that combines all of the facets we love about the outdoor journey. That building anticipation during the week followed by the wonder of arriving at the utopian, dream-like venue. This is fulfilled by exploring, meeting new people and getting absorbed into the positive energy channelled from the wide smiles and good vibes
Our friends at Silent Events will once again be bringing their excellent, 3 channel multi genre headphone shindig to Bazique , doing pop up parties over the weekend.. look out for them !
