Rezonance New Year’s Eve Party in Robertson

Say farewell to 2016 and welcome 2017 at the premier NYE trance shindig

If you’re a festi-head who loves a good weekend farm jol then this New Year’s Eve stomp will be right up your alley. The mother of all New Year’s Eve parties, Rezonance NYE Festival, is back for four days of epicness from Friday, 30 December 2016 to Monday, 2 January 2017 at Pat Busch Mountain Reserve in Robertson.

As always, this NYE festival lures the hottest local and international psytrance, progressive, techno, dub and electronica overlords, and revellers can expect to embark on a spiritual journey through light and sound.

Four stages and an idyllic dam set the scene for the debauchery that is sure to go down. A variety of food and drink vendors will be based on farm for those who can’t be bothered to bring their own booze and grub. 


There are 150 musicians are on the line-up for the 2016/2017 Rezonance New Year’s Eve Festival, with six international acts also taking the stage. The line-up has not yet been totally released, but so far we have one local act and three of our six internationals.

  • Dickster
  • Arjuna
  • Daydin
  • Broken Toy
