Earthdance Cape Town 2011 and The Red Bull Sound System
This is an excerpt taken from the Red Bull Studio website...
"After the excitement of Maximum Signal Control, we all had high hopes for our little Sound-System in the wide-open expanses of Nekkies Resort in Worcester, where the annual Earthdance Festival is held. Wow, did she deliver!
The three-day festival is an amalgamation of Psychedelic Trance, World-ish music and Dance / Electronica being spread over three stages with food stalls and market style shops dotting the landscape between the debauchery and musical delight that is provided by each dancefloor. People are in no short supply, with the festival having gained massive support as one of the best on the calendar that makes up the summer fest season in Cape Town.
This year was a great wake-up call and testament to the power of electronic music and the sound that is being so heavily pushed by the Red Bull Studio and its musical friends around the country. The Music Box Stage has provided a platform for a wide range of styles, From Electro, Techno and many other forms of Dance music, to the more sit-down-and-listen styles of Glitch and Dub. The programming of the Music Box stage was varied and widely-encompassing, and truly an excellent example of South Africa's musical range but also the Red Bull Sound System."
I had the time of my life and possibly one of the best sets I have played.. The crowd was amazing, the rig was HUGE and the party will go down as one of the best this year.. Thank you Earthdance and Red Bull Studio Cape Town.. Long live the Music Box!!!
