Oh yes. Oh yes. OH YES! We’ve been waiting for this for some time at Brandalism HQ, so we’re pleased to let the people know that Cape Town is set to get it’s very own Holi One Festival of Colour.
A Hindu religious festival by origin, the Holi festival marks the celebration of the death of Hiranyakashipu – the King of Demons – and is traditionally celebrated in Spring. The festival also marks the beginning of a new season, and the end of the harsh winter. Known for it’s joyous moods, dancing, music and (especially) the throwing of special coloured powder, the festival has gained popularity throughout the world.
The event caused a massive stir when it was initially announced way back in July,with the Facebook page going viral and amassing 5000 or so likes in no time at all. Then both the event and page just vanished from thin air without a trace – quite unlike the coloured powder we were all so looking forward to throwing about. The good news is that it’s back on track and is now being managed by Seed Experiences (of Rocking the Daisies). Here’s what they had to say about the mixup:
“We’ve just been appointed as the project management company behind the South African HOLI ONE Colour Festival series and we will be handling the project from here on out. We are aware that there have been communication issues on Facebook before we were appointed but all of this will be streamlined going forward and the social media portals will be easier to navigate from now on. All three events promise to be amazing! More details to follow in the coming weeks.”
We’re really glad that such a top class team is behind it now, as the event promises to be pretty special indeed.
Cape Town will be the first city to host the HOLI ONE Colour Festival and will feature a brilliant line-up of some of the biggest DJ acts in the country, as well as a host of the freshest and most impressive new DJ’s exploding onto the Cape Town music scene.
2 March 2013 – Cape Town, Grand Parade – 12pm – 10pm. Tickets available from Webtickets and selected outlets (R170 early bird; R190 otherwise).
