Bastille LIVE in SA

a seed experience

“But if you close your eyes, does it almost feel like nothing changed at all…” will echo through the valleys of Kirstenbosch Gardens and the parks of Emmarentia Dam in January 2014.

Exploring Fascinating Africa!


It’s 4.15 am. Still quite sleepy, I creep out of my tent to be, some minutes later, ready to sit in the truck that is waiting for us. Shortly after 5.00 am, we leave the campsite and after a one-hour-drive we reach our destination. I jump out of the truck and feel the fresh, clean air surrounding me. Above me lies nothing but the still dark and cloudless sky. Immediately, we start climbing “Dune 45” which spreads itself right in front of us. Finally we sit on the ridge of the dune, searching in anticipation for the expectant sunrise. Bit by bit, it edges out of the darkness until its warm rays caress our faces and then the entire plain before us. And as J.W. Goethe’s writes in “Faust” “I am a man here; I can be a man here!”

About Cape Town



Everyone has been on at least one terrible date. If at this point you are thinking to yourself, “No, not me”, perhaps you are unwaveringly optimistic, perhaps you have flexible expectations, or perhaps you are downright nauseatingly lucky. For the rest of us (who can relate to horror stories of small-talk that led to “I only listen to heavy metal bangra”, or the maniac that asked to see your feet on the first date), we understand how a terrible choice of place can ruthlessly catalyze an already souring date. Luckily for you though, the Mothercity is nurturing when it comes to romance. The rain and winter breeze encourage opportunists to venture in closer, under the guise of consideration and warmth. From Gugulethu to Camps
