Hex Festival by Darker Dimensions

Dannyboy playing at Hexfest

Hex Festival, held in GibaLand, a gorge near Durban in Kwazulu Natal, South Africa, was fabulous. Great Psychedelic music, great crowd, decor, visuals and excellent sound made for an outstanding event.

The KZN Psy crowd is friendly and fun to party with. The Darker Dimensions crew have assembled some great DJ’s that play really good music.

GibaLand is in a lovely forest. It was heavily affected by the recent floods in KZN, with the bridge to the venue washed away by the river. Luckily they were able to fix the problem before the event.

If you have never been to a party in Kwazulu Natal, South Africa, make the time for it. I have never been disappointed.

Organik Love Project

Organik Love Project this weekend was a great event. Set on Kromrivier Farm in the Cape of South Africa, the venue was beautiful. Surrounded by mountains, a river and forest, it was the perfect getaway. A great lineup of some of Cape Town’s best DJ’s as well as Sonic Species, the music was fresh and the dancefloor was packed.

The stage design was a collaboration between Carin Dickson and Christopher Dowding, with 3D tendrils filled with LEDS, beautiful stretch decor and shaped into a big heart.

The music was top class. My favourite set came from Bernz on the Friday night, 10.30pm to 12.30am. Great Psychedelic Trance, and the crowd was jumping!

The festival was opened by Sonic Druid, playing some laid back Zenon style grooves. It’s been a while since I saw him play and he did a great job of bringing the crowd onto the dancefloor.

Cape Town collective “Our Minds” had a strong showing at the festival, with one of the head guys, Abra playing some good Dark Psy.

There was some rain on Saturday, but that didn’t seem to bother the crowd at all. The dancefloor stayed full and people just kept dancing. Some dancefloors just disappear when the rain and cold comes, Cape Town seem to have developed thick skins! Silo played a great set and held the crowd, dancing all the way.

The Sunday was warm and sunny and people had a lovely Sunday Funday. Headroom always seems to be the most popular DJ in Cape Town, rocking the crowd with his signature sound. Lots of hoola hoops, jugglers and flow artists were out and about, showing off their skills.

Great production and teamwork from the crew. They were on the ball and I didn’t see any incidents that they couldn’t handle with ease. Special thanks to Warren and Bianca for their hospitality and making sure everything ran smoothly throughout.

We launched our new brand at Love Project, and are looking forward to seeing it grow.
