About the Festival OUR VIBE

Philosophy Eco-Conscious Play As always, it is our hope to experimentally co-create with all of you a space to facilitate and expand on Eco-Conscious Party practicesand Interacting with Awareness – of our selves, our tribe, our natural environment, and our constantly evolving world at large.We are working to engage with and promote the ethics and principles of being 'high on life' -which we understand to be the practice of enjoying our personal selves through sharing our skills, talents and  passions to promotelife, health, and a happy green Earth for all to enjoy.​This is a conscious child-friendly event which caters to all ages, colours, shapes and forms.It is therefore important to note we do not accept raucous, intoxicated and high-maintenance behaviour at any point during the celebrations.​We aim to provide a space within which to party creatively, with loving respect for other people, our animals, and the land itself.If you are unsure of the motivations of the people joining you, please take responsibility for relaying this message clearly.Of course we will play, with much enthusiasm, but we expect everyone who attends to align with our ethos.​

Festival Theme AFRIKAGROW

The longstanding drought in this area together with recurring wildfires has made urgent the need to fast track the rehabilitation of indigenous species, both fauna and flora, by selectively removing alien vegetation and re-cultivating the land with appropriate plants and purpose.​To bring attention and awareness to this important environmental issue, and to harness the potential of purposeful-people-power,we will have a tree planting session where we invite you to learn, share and get your lovely hands dirty.​This SOUL SOIL SESSION will be focused around our mission of re-greening the campsite withindigenous buffer zones and planting food for our bees.In this way we creatively celebrate and honour our Earth as we bring in the New Year with wholesome intention.​Check the line-up when you arrive if you are keen to get involved!Important to Note:While we do all we can to minimise the threat of wild fires on the farm, the Garden Route is still ahigh fire-risk area, especially in the hot, dry summer months.Cigarette butts, open fires and irresponsibility are the main culprits.We request everyone to actively and conscientiously work with us on this one.​​Artist Applications If you have something special in your toolbox to contribute to this event and you feel inclined to get involved, please email Ola at wsfestivaloffriends@gmail.com.​For any other info or queries please contact our lovely Michaela at the same address.
