Vivid Psytrance Life

We have heaps of local talent in South Africa; it’s not uncommon to see a world-class DJ perform on a week night in Cape Town for less than R100 while the same artist will get booked for international events at some of the world’s top festivals. Headroom, Tune Raider, Broken Toy and Rubix Qube are well-known Trance ambassadors. Not to mention Bruce, Connecto, i-Tone and DJ Mark but there are too many talented DJs and producers to list!

Do’s and Dont’s in Cape Town
