WE ARE ONE COLOUR FESTIVAL BRIGHTENS UP CAPE TOWN & JOBURG!
SOUTH AFRICA’S ORIGINAL COLOUR FESTIVAL HIT JOZI AND CAPE TOWN THIS PAST WEEKEND WITH A FAIRYTALE CARNIVAL TWIST, THE LEGENDARY FELIX DA HOUSECAT AND LOADS OF COLOUR
The celebration of colour kicked off at the Grand Parade in the Mother City on Human Rights Day this past Friday, the 21st of March. Colour-soaked revellers decorated the air with coloured powder and danced in unity to the sounds of Kanan K7 (BRA), The Skenes, Dean FUEL, James Copeland, Tommy Gun, Plagiarhythm, Floyd Lavine, Mike Play and Chicago’s legendary house DJ, Felix Da Housecat.
After waiting with much anticipation, Jozi festival-goers headed to the scenic setting of Emmarentia Dam on Saturday for their turn at the colour phenomenon. The audience jumped and bounced to the electric beats from SA’s top DJ’s such as Penthouse, Michael Lesar, Matt Suttner, Mix n Blend, Maoriginal, Vinny Da Vinci and finally to top it all off, the legend himself, Felix Da Housecat.
To up the ante at this year’s WE ARE ONE series, Seed Experiences promised fans a bigger, better and louder colour festival with a FAIRY TALE CARNIVAL theme – transforming the previous white dress code into a mystical expression of fantasy and Mardi Gras colour where revellers let their imaginations run wild. Beautiful masks, striking make-up and flamboyant accessories filled both venues while celebrating the explosions of coloured powder every hour on the hour.
With close on 100,000 Facebook fans across both Jo’burg and Cape Town pages, the official festival hashtag #WEAREONESA was trending as the excited festival-goers tweeted their messages, party photos and colourful selfies for the world to see.
Adding to the extravagant occasion, Place in the Sun Wines as the official wine sponsor, provided the colourful party-goers with a range of their Fairtrade certified wines to enjoy in a cool tasting zone.
Another successful WE ARE ONE Colour Festival, proudly brought to you by Seed Experiences, has left Cape Town and Johannesburg fans soaked in colour and once again, establishing itself as the original colour festival of South Africa.
