The arty Bazique music festival is slugged “A 3 Day Reverie of Art, Music and Absurdism”. The fun all happens from 15 to 17 March 2019 at Elgin Grabouw Country Club.
It’s a collaboration with Wolfkop Weekender, Sexy Groovy Love, Cape Town Electronic Music Festival, Bridges for Music, Diskotekah, Into the Wild, We House Sundays and Summer Camp, with cheeky twist of Secret Garden Party (UK).
There’s camping and glamping at this epic event, which is packed with music stages. There’s also a huge swimming dam surrounded by mountains and fringed by 2 kilometres of sandy beaches with horizon sunrises and sunsets – what’s not to love!
Colourful add-ons include Art and Architecture (think large scale site art that can be danced in, on and around), a Starlit Spa, Art Cars and Art Boats and The Vehement Youth Young Designers Emporium.
Bazique music stages
A new art-immersive area presented in association with Bridges For Music. It combines bands with an African flavour in the day, with deep house, Afrobeat and techno till sunrise. Cape Town Electronic Music Festival takes over on the Friday.
Corona Ukudlala Beach
The drift: “Come and shake yer hula and dance all day on the lakeside sand to deep house and tropical beats. Be fabulous and dress in your tropical daytime disco best”.
La Fee Verte
“An Electric Ballroom, Whisky Bar and Revue, purveying music to make you dance that ain’t house techno or trance … instead we got funk, disco, swing, hip hop, be-bop. Basically rock n roll, and a whole lotta love accompanied by strange entertainers on and off the stage. Burlesque dancers and gypsy swingers, bad taxidermy and good whisky, strong absinthe and weak wills … a den of oddness and iniquity that is definitely not for the faint-hearted.”
This groundbreaking, indoor entertainment concept is designed by Andrew Florenca and Will Hutton from The Sunroom.
The amigos at Silent Events once again bringing their three-channel multi-genre headphone shindig to Bazique – doing pop-up parties on various playa locations over the weekend. Plus there’s a Blue Lotus Chillout area.
