This year, Spectrum and Reboot bring you its annual Blue Moon Festival in conjunction with Psyked in the City and ROCKITSHIP RECORDS.

Party goers can look forward to some powerful full-on/night time psy in the Main Arena, while the Prog Arena will be reserved for Cape Town’s finest progressive acts. Then, of course, there’s the dark psytrance and high-tech arena which will be blasting that dark mind-mangling goodness for those who prefer things a bit harder and faster. Scroll down to view the line-up.

Needless to say, we’re incredibly excited to be part of this anticipated event! We’ve got two tickets to give away to one lucky trancling. Follow the steps below and it could be you.

WATCH📹: A Hipster Goes to Vortex for the 1st Time

“A lost hipster” as he calls himself, Luca Strappazzon, let his psytrance-loving friends persuade him to attend his first ever psytrance festival earlier this year.

We can’t believe this video managed to slip under our radar! Nevertheless, here it is. Enjoy a chuckle and some really quality footage of the event to make you feel all nostalgic inside.

Looking Back: Vortex Parallel Universe 2017 #SundayFunday

by Gila Efrat

We arrived at Vortex Parallel Universe, clean and fresh on Sunday Funday, unlike many other stompers who were already tired from their share of debauchery. Nonetheless, the beautiful backdrop of the mountains welcomed us to join in on the Easter fun. The farmground, dusty and dressed with hay, was decorated in hanging technicolour flags in a semi-circle around the dance-floor and clothing stalls. We decided to head to Oh So Peachy for their famous cheese and corn samosas, after getting the munchies due to the long drive from the Cape of Good Dope.

Vortex parallel universe review

A drink or two later and I was prepared for a set’s worth on the dance-floor. The windy day had caused the gazebo to sweep back and forth, fitting as the luminescent decor danced in sync with the loud vibrations. I had arrived just in time for Deliriant; and you definitely get what you paid for with Deliriant’s energetic and atmospheric style.
