“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. Not just any festival though; Vortex. Specifically winter Vortex – the coldest of all noteworthy outdoor psytrance events in the Western Cape of South Africa. 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.

Everyday I experience a small wave of excitement when I log onto my blog’s stats.
What’s most mind-blowing for me is that I’m sitting somewhere, at the tip of Africa, writing about what’s going on in our little city, and sharing it with people I never imagined I’d talk to… and so fast!
This world really has become a global village thanks to the internet, as well as the psytrance and culture that connects people all over the planet. And a small but beautiful planet it is.
Thank you to everyone who reads my blog, where-ever you are.
