Utopia Festival is back for its second year and promises to once again put a twist on one of Cape Town’s favorite venues – Nekkies – bringing you amazing stages, décor, design and only the country’s top performers.
After the success of 2013, the inaugural year for Utopia, the team is back and no longer content with being just another music festival!
This year you can expect to see the festival grown into a one of a kind, full entertainment experience – combining the most renowned South African musical talent with cutting edge production & design to create an unparalleled festival space that you will have to see to believe.
Utopia is also forward thinking event when it comes to sustainable human practice; once again partnering with GreenPop with the core focus of the festival to bring people together not just through music but also through the ideals of a sustainable and eco-conscious lifestyle.
To start off their greening practice, they have released a limited number of well-priced Green Tickets for purchase. A Green Ticket includes a Full Weekend Pass to the Festival and a tree planted on your behalf by the GreenPop team. All party goers will then also be able to “green” their tickets by adding on a GreenPop tree to any Utopia ticket purchased via the webtickets website.
