A weekend of Psychedelic Music, Art and Culture: A sundrenched weekend of quality vibes!
Origin Festival brings another electronic gathering to amaze your senses, both visually and musically, experimenting with various additions to the music festival environment; including top international guests and the cream of South African talent, visionary art gallery, recycling initiatives, alternate music floors and styles and much more behind the scenes antics!
Besides being an amazing outdoor party with multiple area’s and dancefloors, Origin strives to bring consciousness back into the South African party scene while hoping to gently expose people to new ideas and positive lifestyle alternatives.
Set at the breathtaking Elandskloof Farm, Helderstroom, this lush green valley with its fresh streams, enchanted forest and towering mountain backdrops beckons us once more for an adventure in connecting, laughing, relaxing and enjoying nature in all its glory - the full Origin Experience.
