As it turns out, Wonderland is in the Western Cape. The fantastical roaming village is hidden deep in the Equinox Enchanted Forest, and can only be found by those who know the way. Luckily for you, we have directions to this extraordinary village and the wonderful festival taking place there between 15 and 17 February 2019.
The Equinox Experience
This mystical playground among the trees is a one-of-a-kind sensory adventure of uplifting music and fun activities. From jumping castles and ball pits to face-painting, yoga and meditation, a crafts section, food trucks and extreme visual mapping, Equinox Festivals are known for putting “the experience” front and centre.
Join the Enchanted Family
Tickets are not for sale to the public. To buy yours, you need to register on their website and, once approved, you will be able to purchase your ticket (and book accommodation if needed).
Get your tent on
Nestled at the foot of the Western Cape’s second highest mountain, with the smell of pine cones crisp in the air, is Matroosberg Private Nature Reserve – the home of the Equinox Experience’s Enchanted Forest. For three days, you’re invited to pitch a tent under the 100-year-old pine trees just metres from the newly built open-air, hot-water-shower block. If camping is not your thing, there are several on-site accommodation units available, ranging from luxury to in-house camping. Rent one for an easy festival experience, and then cast your inhibitions to the wind…
Visual Mapping by Afterlife Visuals
If you attended Enchanted Forest 2018, you will know what we mean when we say: “insane visual mapping!” Word on the street is that this year’s video mapping, supported by brand new wireless lighting and high-density lasers, is the first of its kind to be done in South Africa.
Get ready to be blown away by the crystal-clear very high definition (VHD) sound rig by KV2 Audio. The clarity and power from this state-of-the-art sound rig will make you listen to electronic music in a completely new way! Intrigued? View the lineup here!
The Enchanted Forest lineup
The 2019 Enchanted Forest lineup promises a selection of handpicked DJs and producers, ranging from Deep House, Techno, Melodic Techno to Progressive Psy-Trance.
Food for thought
Guests are asked to support the local community by purchasing snacks, drinks and fuel while driving through the Ceres area. And if you have old clothes, stationery and books, or you feel like donating long-lasting food to those less fortunate, you’ll be able to drop off your contributions at the gate.
The devil’s in the detail
To ensure safe, clean fun is had, please don’t bring glass, illegal substances, weapons, fireworks, independent sound systems, litter and negative attitudes into the grounds. Regrettably, no pets are allowed (unless previously agreed upon), and no-one under the age of 21 years.
