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.
