Cape Town pays tribute to Tata Madiba
Organik Love Project Trance Party
Kick it up at one of the last outdoor psytrance festivals of the season
Don’t hang up those party outfits just yet: the good folks at production company Organik are bringing trance lovers another outdoor music festival, Love Project, from Saturday, 11 May to Sunday, 12 May 2013 at the aptly titled Utopia, a dreamy venue near Caledon that lies just 100km from Cape Town.
One of the last jols of an epic season, the party features two mega psytrance producers from Israel, Vertical Mode and Xerox, as well as local favourites, like PsyGuy, Headroom and Stereotype, who are all sure to bring the sickest beats and breaks to stompers jamming on the shaded dance floor.
The grassy, tree-lined setting lends itself to spreading the love and features everything festival-goers could need for a good time, including dams for swimming and food, craft and clothing stalls. Revelers should note, though, that no glass bottles are allowed in, so any alcohol brought from home should be decanted into plastic containers.
Camping goes without saying, and for those who don’t feel like roughing it too much, Belle Tent Village will be hiring out groovy waterproof tents that sleep between two and four people.
The organisers Organik have also made a pledge to ‘play’ it forward by supporting the Overberg Development and Empowerment Centre in Caledon. There will be a collection box at the festival gate
s for spare blankets and clothes that will go to underprivileged school children from the region who will need them this winter.

- Xerox (Israel)
