Review: Jungala Festival 2015

It was Saturday morning, the 25th of April; we were on the road to Buffalo Drift at last – the home of Jungala Festival 2015. My excitement mounted as finally we passed through the gates. The sounds of Rob GonZo’s techno beats emanated in the background and we decided to scout the dance-floor. It was twelve o ‘clock, already the venue was bustling.

I strolled through a quasi-market filled with colourful stalls selling dream-catchers, crystals and clothing, and past the Prema Shanti Healing Sanctuary. The Psychedelic Dream Temple lay ahead with its collection of visionary artworks – as curated by Jonathan West. Then I saw it: the dance-floor. What a sight to behold!

The castle-like structure towered before me and we moved into the oasis. Unfortunately Broken Switch was unable to perform due to unforeseen circumstances so we were treated to some extra Rob GonZo magic before Nick Grater got behind the decks.

Afternoon merged into evening, the sky a rich pink; D-Sciple and Phixius echoed through the trees and I was in a world of my own. By the time Silo & Humerous got on stage, I had my Jungle Bucket in hand – cranberry flavoured – courtesy of Liquid Rainbow.   Continue reading Review: Jungala Festival 2015
