Synergy Live, Cape Town’s legendary Live and Electronic Music Festival returns to the beautiful Theewaters Sports club on the edge of the Theewaterskloof Dam. Soak up the sun, pitch a tent, relax and rock out to a mind-blowing line-up international and local bands, DJ’s and comedians, performing on multiple stages for 3 full days. And with less than two weeks to go, here’s a reminder of what to expect:
As with any respected major festival, anywhere on the planet, the Main Stage is what excites the imagination long before the three-day weekend reveal unwinds. They know and swear by theirs, only because it’s not merely a stage, it’s the festival’s self proclaimed home, made up of an extraordinary audio visual production and showcasing a world-class line up of bands, acts and artists. The big names will blow you away, but look out for future superheroes earning their stripes. Don’t forget international headliner, indie band Bombay Bicycle Club!! It’s a full widescreen HD experience that forms the on-going soundtrack to a spectacular weekend in the sun and between the stars. Synergy’s Main Stage wishes to count as the one playing the right tunes at the right time. All you have to do is turn up!
Add the Red Bull Studio Live experience to what’s patently apparent, even before the beats bleed out, is every style of music will get a look and listen in. With Red Bull commissioned and conscripted to deliver the finest electronica, made up of drum and bass, dubstep, deep and tech house, blended into a background filled with techno and trance and what’s assured is you’ll be reaching for an ice-cold can between their impressive beats per minute delivery. Watch out for the likes of S.P.Y, Egbert and Secret Cinema, to name a few.
Diversity is the guaranteed constant on tap, and in order to reinforce that ideology the electronic music fraternity will happily acknowledge and support the Sirius Sunday Electronic Music Experience. Thenine-hour electronic music party, from the likes of international acts Captain Hook, right through Atmos andMindwave, each will drop the punchiest bass lines and most hypnotic rhythms turning the world on right now.
Add the ERA Beach Club, with mandatory sarongs, cocktails and a collection of deep house and techno, and what’s sure to ensue is a party of epic proportion. Dished up by Cape Town’s CBD of dance, ERA, together with their whole crew and fiery foursome of international cameo acts – Stimming, Ron Costa, Lake People and DJ Anna
ERA Beach Club looks set to be the perfect go-between stages, The Market Place, The Traders Square and your tent or boutique-styled outdoor glamper’s investment in Heartbreak Motel luxury. For less than two bars you and your significant other can bed down, shower up and sleep soundly in a tent already pitched before you arrive. Fresh linen and 24-hour security makes perfect sense if you’re looking for a pampered party solution. Remember though, accommodation and festival tickets are sold separately.
