Review: Beartrap Ground Zero Festival 2014 (Sunday)

On the 15th of March 2014, I awoke during the early hours of the morning – early, as in it was still dark outside – with excitement stirring inside me for the Sunday Session that awaited us at Ground Zero Festival.

We were on route before the sun came up. Nekkies was the venue of choice this year, having been a longtime favourite for major festivals, such as Earthdance, with plenty of space to accommodate three (yes, three!) stages and a pool to boot.

I was a little bleak about having missed Double-Click and Vini Vici the previous night, not to mention some of my favourite locals and the Insane Intelligent Lighting Display that everyone was raving about. Fortunately however, we arrived just in time for Ultravoice (a legend within the international psytrance community having almost a decade’s worth of experience behind his name).

After a little chocolate tequila for breakfast (shhh, don’t tell my Mom) we were well on our way to psychedelic paradise. The dance floor was heaving when international icon Sesto Sento took the stage. (This was a pretty big moment for me, considering I’m a full-on Sesto freak). Spirits were riding high when he played his famed “Lift me up” mix.

Just listen to those melodies!

The sun was glaring by the time Blastoyz began to blast his killer high-tech beats, so I made my way over to the sprinklers at the rear end of the dance floor. There I met a few other drenched partiers. As we revelled, stomping bare-footed in the mud my favourite track “Green Stuff” erupted from the speakers.

Sway was on next. The crowd extended a warm Beartrap welcome and you could see that “Mama Bear” was right at home. Her uplifting beats protruded from the DJ box. I didn’t want them to stop for a minute. The hose pipe was going at this point, and the crowd was causing muddy mayhem on the dancefloor.

Headroom was behind the decks before I had a chance to recover. I guess it’s true what they say, time flies when you are having fun! I realized I was in a total time warp, going from one killer set to the next, when I glanced up to see Dave Mac was taking over, bringing his proggy tunes to life.

Finally, the big moment had arrived. The all-mighty Berg captured our attention as he climbed onto stage. It’s no secret that he’s become a psy-sensation within the Cape Town trance scene. His popularity seems to escalate every time he graces South Africa with his magic. And it’s no wonder why.

Apart from Berg’s dashing Israeli looks, his hard-hitting bass-lines and proggy psychadelic hooks are globally-recognized. As I jammed to esteemed tracks like “Wizdom” and “Limitless” my expectations were well exceeded.

What an awesome atmosphere. Cape Town can Berg in my book! Talk about ending the party on a high-note. Big thanks to Beartrap, RP Sound and Lighting, Psylife, Abby and Laura (Sway).
Until next time… Stay #psyked.
