With the atmosphere eerily united and the music playing loudly, the festival, although smaller than last year, was true to its name in bringing hundreds of people from all over the province – and from even further away – together. With each countdown to the hour, everybody stuffed themselves into the company of the person next to them to indulge in a rain of colour as each person threw a bag-full of powder into the air.
The unity was mostly achieved by the music that was played continuously throughout the day. The line-up included the main feature of the event, long-time international electronic DJ, Felix Da Housecat, with Mix N Blend, Ma’ Original, Michael Lesar, Penthouse, Matt Suttner and Vinny Da Vinci keeping the attendees well entertained with each of their sets throughout the day.
Despite a cloudy and overcast weather forecast, the sun was mostly shining bright rays on the crowds of rainbow people gathered during the festival. To prevent overheating refreshments where readily available, safe from collecting coloured debris in the “no powder zone”, to keep the heated attendees cooled down.
Although the colours blended into a faded brown after the third throw, the crowds continued forward in full spirit, keeping the vibes flowing in bliss.
Although it might be too early to get the dates of the next event in Johannesburg or Cape Town it would be wise to keep an eye on social media for announcements of the dates as this is a festival not to be missed.
