Last updated: 8 November 2022

One of the UK’s driving forces in music and artist promotion (think Ed Sheeran, Steve Aoki, Ben Howard), The Playground is bringing some of the most influential and groundbreaking acts to the country for the first time. A star-studded line-up of international and local electronic music acts will play at South Africa’s first Timeless Festival – a 3-day camping festival happening from 10 to 12 March 2023, on a working farm at the foothills of the Riviersonderend mountains. 

Tickets are selling fast – here’s why, and what to expect. Plus, a 5-hour playlist and 5 music videos to get you in the mood.
