 Last updated: 12 December 2023

Chivalrous knights, evil Faerie kings, benevolent elf queens, fire dancers, aerial artists – you’ll find all of this and more at Cape Town's hottest New Year’s Eve party, held at the foot of Table Mountain from 4pm to 3am. Here’s everything you need to know about Alcazar 2023.

PREPARE FOR A LAVISH CELEBRATION

Alcazar is an annual New Year’s Eve celebration, set against the dramatic backdrop of Table Mountain. ​​Three immersive art stages will whisk you away into a kaleidoscope of joie de vivre, with 3D projection mapping, fire dancers, aerial artists, gymnasts and performance artists. 

Alcazar attracts more than 5 000 party-goers every year – so expect to see the who’s who of Cape Town and visitors from around the globe. Note: Alcazar is an over 21s event.

CAN YOU GUESS THE THEME?

Each year the 3-storey-high main stage at Alcazar is inspired by one of the great palaces of the world (real or fictional) to create an astonishing art piece. This year the theme is Faerie Tale, with ethereal creatures, magical beasts and mischievous faeries.  

With the main stage mimicking a fae palace, you’ll be part of the fantastical playground that is Alcazar. Party-goers can dress up like chivalrous knights, evil Faerie kings, benevolent elf queens, cheeky forest spirits and so much more, if they wish.


Fancy dress at Alcazar is optional, but highly encouraged. Image: Alcazar

WORLDWIDE TALENT ACROSS 3 STAGES 

This year, the Alcazar main stage includes international headliners like Catz ‘N Dogz (a Polish duo who mix elements of bright disco and deep house with foundations in techno). Madmotormiquel is not to be missed – beginning his career in 1990’s Germany, he’s become synonymous with the Berlin house scene. 

A stand out local act has to be Floyd Lavine, who’s making international waves with his vibrant Afro sets and his charismatic energy that the crowd adores.

Then, there’s the Wolfkop Den, the electric dance floor that promises wonder and fun-filled vibrations all night long. A highlight is Mimi Love, with an electronically nomadic sound that blends dreamy downbeat disco and hypnotic house. 

Le Fee Verte, the decadent ballroom stage, features talent like Abby Nurock (one of the only local DJs to play her sets completely on vinyl). 


All 3 stages will run from 9pm - 3am. Image: Alcazar
