All the deets:

River Fest 2014 is a day-night electronic outdoor dance music festival - over the full moon - featuring some of SA’s top DJs and electro bands.

The festival is taking place on Saturday 6 December 2014 at Buffalo Drift Lodge on Ruigtevlei Farm, Gouda, Western Cape. The gates open at 08:00 and the festival starts at 12:00.

"River Fest is inspired by the production of massive indoor commercial events,” says festival organiser Calvin Pfaff. “We’re creating a festival that has that same level of sound architecture and décor; combined with outdoor festival energy. Festival-goers will
experience the music and the beautiful venue from all aspects of the spectrum. There’s a lack of outdoor commercial festivals in the EDM market in Cape Town—and we’re filling that gap."

The opulent grooves will start at noon-sharp and the organisers have created a musical journey building to the point where the full moon fills the sky, from there the music continues till 04:00.

The line-up:

• The Kiffness
• Goodluck
• James Copeland
• The Variable
• Pascal & Pearce
• Haezer
• Niskerone
• Gio Ricca
• The Variable
• Ashton Gardner
• Glen Forte
• Mum - Z

Added to the uniqueness of River Fest revellers can look forward to jumping castles, water slides, and an inflatable island floating on the river.

Attendees will be treated to high-end drinks such as premium spirits and bubbly to ice cold beers and buckets of cocktails. Food trucks will be on-site offering a variety of menus that promise to sate both meat-eaters and vegetarians.

From music, to drinks, water toys and more, River Fest has done the thinking for you. All you need to do is set up camp in the spectacular surrounds, and don’t forget to bring swimming gear to take advantage of the incredible Berg River.

Tickets cost R350 and VIP tickets cost R550. Click here to buy tickets.
