Alien Safari: Masqued Ball Trance Party

Dress up and explore the Kingdom of Hearts at one of summer’s wildest outdoor electronica festivals

There is no better time than the present to embrace your inner dancing sprite or entertain your outer merry prankster than at the Alien Safari trance party happening just outside Cape Town on Saturday, 25 and Sunday, 26 February 2017.

That’s right stompers, the much-anticipated and oh-so loved Masqued Ball is back this year with a rad all-star line-up of epic local and international DJs and producers, like Dirty Saffi (UK), Dust (Italy) and Ritmo (Israel).

Plus, unlike some of the more massive, commercial psy-calendar highlights, this party perfectly mixes the spirit of a friendly get-together with the incredible production quality of a big outdoor summer event.

But the main thing that sets it apart from the rest is the location. This supersonic weekend adventure sounds off on a secluded beach near Gordon’s Bay, and the out-of-the-ordinary, enchanting venue features great camping sites, a grand view and the opportunity to catch some waves between sets.

Otherwise, if you’re looking forward to roughing it, don’t forget your mask and tent! There will be a full bar on site, but it’s always advised to bring your own booze (no glass, please), sunscreen and smokes.

TICKETS FOR THE 2017 ALIEN SAFARI: MASQUED BALL TRANCE PARTY

Pre-sale tickets are available via Quicket.co.za for R400p/p prior to the festival. Gates will open at 10am on Saturday, and the music stops on Sunday at 4pm.

There is also an extra R250 vehicle levy (on top of the ticket cost) charged per car. For each additional passenger, the levy is reduced by R50; so it will be R250 for one person (the driver), R150 for two people, R100 for three people, R0 for four people.

  • Absolutely no drinking on the beach will be tolerated; partygoers can drink alcohol in the caravan park. Note that this rule will be strictly enforced.

  • Swimming at night is strictly forbidden.
  • Respect the venue as it is part of a nature reserve; strictly no glass, fires, fireworks, domestic animals, independent sound systems, illegal substances, graffiti and weapons are allowed at the venue.

  • Organisers have ensured that the event is safe and secure and will not accept any responsibility for negligent behaviour.
  • And please, leave the bad attitude at the gate.
