Origin Festival 2014!


A weekend of Psychedelic Music, Art and Culture: A sundrenched weekend of quality vibes!

Origin Festival brings another electronic gathering to amaze your senses, both visually and musically, experimenting with various additions to the music festival environment; including top international guests and the cream of South African talent, visionary art gallery, recycling initiatives, alternate music floors and styles and much more behind the scenes antics!

  62. Dean Nathan Jones says:

    Personally, for the Origin Floor, I’m super interested to see Ryanosaurus! There’s been a lot of hype around the Zenon dudes on the social interwebs, so I’d dig to see what their unique dark prog sounds are all about (especially on a booming rig)!

    As for the Beats Stage, my number 1 would have to be Secret Cinema! Mainly because I know he does a lot of back-to-backs with Egbert! hahah So he must be good! :D

    Either way I know Origin will be a bloody humdinger again this year! Last year was my favourite party of the year and I’m sure I’ll be able to say the same of it again for 2014!! AMPED!
