Review: The Sunflower Festival

Last weekend I joined 4700 party-goers in welcoming Spring at the first outdoor party of the season; the Sunflower Festival hosted by Nawty Media & Marketing and Fourth Dimension at the Cape Town Ostrich Farm. There was much debate about whether or not the organisers would be able to deliver a better experience than the more common “first party of the season” i.e Alien Safari’s Sprung which will take place this coming Saturday. But all in all, the Sunflower Festival was a huge success and I’m glad that I attended.

Despite the terrible weather that loomed, cold front and all, we braved the elements. It did help, of course, that we all came prepared, dressed in plenty layers of socks, gumboots and, you guessed it, onesies.

The more adventurous stompers took the opportunity to get down and dirty in the mud, barefoot I might add, embracing the light rain that did fall now and then. That’s what an outdoor is all about, right?

Unfortunately, the weather did take its toll on the décor resulting in the actual dancefloor being opened late (around 6 or so) which was forgiven once the party got swinging in full force.

It was wonderful to be back in the great outdoors, stomping with hundreds of smiling faces around me, adorned in face-paint with nothing but nature surrounding us. No cramped-up clubs, no walls, no limitations. There really is something very special about an outdoor party.

The vibe did not disappoint. It was awesome seeing all those familiar faces and making a whole lot of new friends too.

There were plenty of photographers on the scene to capture the psy love. Namely DreamerE.K15 PhotographyShutterMonkey ProductionsStu Shapiropartycamsa.comWayneMarc Berman Photography and The Jackrabbit to name a few. View some of their pics at the bottom of the page.

The flower that was crafted by Artescape hung over our heads in true psychedelic glory and communicated what the festival was all about: rebirth and nature. And that wasn’t the only symbolic element of the jol. The weather decided to partake in our festivities and went from being cold and gloomy to bright, sunny and perfect for a day jam.

At night, the decor really came to life.  Stompers were visually excited by spectacular light shows surrounding the DJ box.

I woke up nice and early on Sunday, grabbing a little breakfast before heading down to the dancefloor for Tune Raider‘s high-energy set which was incredible. But then again, who could expect anything less of her? While jamming to her set I heard a fellow stomper refer to her as “the sexy side of psy.” I absolutely love that. To whoever you are, thank you. I will be using that phrase in my next write up about Pam.

The highlight of the event was, of course, Captain HookI was lucky enough to be front and center as he came onto the stage with his groovy glasses and awesome dreads.

He opened with his killer track “walking on marshmallows” and the crowed went ballistic.  His set was everything I imaged it to be and he kept the dancefloor grooving blissfully for an entire two hours.

Captain Hook wasn’t the only DJ who ripped things apart though. I really felt the dancefloor love during Dj BruceDeliriantMAGNETOClass A and Orca‘s sets too, Watch this insane video of Class A live.

When I wasn’t jamming I was admiring the lovely scene before me, while sitting on the slope of a hill surrounded by other stompers who were also taking a breather.

Things rounded off nicely when StereoType played his Brainbug Nightmare remix.

We were having such a good time that we only started leaving the venue at around 5. Or should I say, we tried to. The mud did pose to be a bit of an issue, and there were many trancers helping one another jumpstart their cars at the end of the party. But it was totally worth the missions, right?

So what’s the verdict? Despite a few speed bumps along the way I do believe that the Sunflower Festival was an awesome intro to Spring. I can only assume that everyone enjoyed themselves as much as I did. Judging from all the smiles I saw, I think it’s a pretty safe bet.

I applaud the organisers for their hard work. Special thanks goes to Abby Chapel for hooking me up with free tickets, as well as my lovely friends, the photographers, the DJs and everyone else who made the event such a success.

Judging from Sunflower, I anticipate a mind-blowing outdoor season up ahead. And now that I’ve gotten a whiff of that beautiful outdoor fever, I can’t wait to experience it again. Next up… Sprung!!!
