Rezonance New Year’s Eve Party Cape Town

Hit slick groovies and cruise into 2015 at this premier NYE trance shindig in Durbanville


Where will you be celebrating New Year’s Eve in Cape Town? If still stumped for plans, consider partying in true Mother City style – that is, have an all out massive jol at a four-day trance festival.

We don’t just mean any old outdoor affair either; we’re talking about the mother of all trance parties, the big dawg that reigns proudly over others – we’re talking about the Rezonance NYE Festival.

The electro extravaganza kicks off on Wednesday, 31 December 2014 at Contermanskloof Farm in the Durbanville area (a 30-minute drive from Cape Town) and thuds to close on Saturday, 3 January 2015.

As always, the epic NYE jol lures the hottest local psytrance, progressive, techno, dub and electronica overlords, and revellers can expect to arrive in one way and leave in completely another.

Four stages and an idyllic dam are all part and parcel to the debauchery, and party organisers will ensure that there is a myriad of food and drink vendors on hand for those who can’t be bothered to bring their own booze and grub. 

Not to mention – and for those of you new to the wonderful world of the outdoor festival - camping under the stars, stomping in the mud and overall fun and freedom will be the order of the day.

Now, if that doesn’t sound like an out-of-this-world, tree-hugging good time, we don’t know what does.
