In the heart of the Riebeek Valley, this weekend, comes Origin trance fest. The setting: river, rolling lawns, dance and trippy decor. Strictly an over 18 festival, reviews I've heard of previous Origins have involved words, "unadulterated (or maybe not) mayhem" and "way way sick". While not particularly articulate, I think these drive home the message: ineffable awesomenessity. (I know it's not a word, but let's go with it). Festival activities will include swimming, swaying, camping, drinking, dancing, perusing craft and pausing for nourishment at the food market. While trance isn't my particular field of expertise, I know enough to know that this one gets rave (literally) reviews.
