  13. I love origin because out of all the parties i have ever been to, origin has outshone them all. From the breathtaking venue to the music and decor. It leaves my body shaking and my soul soaring. My feet positively stomped out and my cheeks sore from grinning.

  14. I love Origin because it’ll be my first outdoor since I left beautiful Cape Town 6 months ago, endured awful European Winter and have come home broke and in serious need of some sunshine, good times and shoe- shaking!:)

  15. I love Origin Festival because it’s the BEST outdoor Trance party in the world and its where I firts met the way of the trance and it was AMAZING!!!

  16. I have never been to origin One day i sat and thought

    This was puzzling for me oh what joy the other festivals have brought.

    And so i checked the line up and euphorically i did find.
    Artists that create such amazing beats, It completely blew my mind.

    There is no turning back now, i cannot forget this. The chane of attending such a spectacular event, would offer me bliss.

    So please My City By Night, make my dreams come true.
    I will dance and prance around eternally grateful to you. <3

  18. “I love Origin Festival because that is where I am going to meet up with my freaky friends again when I come home to Cape Town at the end of January after six months in KZN”

  19. I Love Origin because of the pure good energy one experiences at the festival, the people,the music,the love, the happiness…this is all in abundance at Origin and something I cannot get enough of,only at festivals am I completely free in thought, word and deed. Origin is like an answer to my dreams..a place where there is no judgement and hate but instead just Peace, Love, Unity and Respect. Please allow me this blessing, One Love.

  20. I love Origin because I’m a ninja!

  21. “I love Origin Festival because it is the perfect combination of venue, music and people. Truly the highlight of the outdoor party calendar.”

  22. I love Origin Festival because there is no better way to celebrate the Beginning of a new age than with a party that is symbolic of Peace, Love, Unity and Respect, and I would love to start my year with this one (:

  23. I love Origin Festival because it assembles the community of peace loving beings, where each of us shines bright before mother nature to the tune of pure exhilaration!

    Origin – > Awesome lineup -> Amazing venue -> Beautiful camping under the oak trees -> Swimming/chillaxing -> Lots of vendors -> Wheelbarrow guys -> Best organised festival I’ve been to! -> Counting the days…

  24. I love Origin Festival because they stay true and never compromise!

    The guys at Nano Records have always upheld their standards over the years and released and signed some of the best psy in the world, and Origin has become the benchmark and testing ground for this. A truly unique musical experience, Origin isn’t like any other trance party in The Cape… While many others aim to beat your brains out with the hardest, fastest and noisiest tunes, Origin strips the music to its sweet essentials. The quality of the music at Origin, for me, is definitely one of its main draw-cards; from the most influential tech of Luigi Madonna, to the prime British psy of Dickster, to the bouncy prog of D-Addiction, to the absolutely legendary nighttime goa tunes of Green Nuns, Origin brings us back to, and reminds us, what these parties are really all about!
    Great vibes, smiles and amazing, authentic and inspiring tunes are the Origin ;) of it all!

    Needless to say, I WANT TO BE THERE THIS YEAR!
    But I’m broke, haha

  25. I love Origin Festival because I can get freaky-deaky and krunk drunk all at the same time!!!! Nothing better than a crazy awesome line-up of DJ’s that will blow your mind AWAY and the fact that you can literally roll to your tent to pass out….now that’s what I call responsible partying, AND I’M STOKED!!!!!!!

    • “…krunk drunk…”
      I think you might me going to the wrong festival! Origin is about Light Light and Happiness…. Not for people like you spewing on yourself, and being inconsiderate towards others! Try any Alien Safari party, right up your street!

      • hey man, let him go. maybe once there, one of us will have a positive influence on the guy.

        • Not stopping anyone Morne…. but I hope you are right, sincerely so! But for me personally, I tend to avoid the “krunk” drunk kids. BTW, I think Bethany is a chick.

  26. I love origin because its by far the best party on the trance calendar. Its the only party where I can’t get a chance to sleep because the music is way too good and I don’t want to miss out on a single moment.. The sound,the decor,the artists they bring down each year are amazing and also not forgetting the energy felt on the dance floor on a Sunday…beautiful :) here’s to many more fantastic origin parties in the future, big ups to Regan and the Nano crew for never disappointing :)

  27. I LOVE ORIGIN because…………I don’t know why!!!!! I’ve never been and would LOVE to go. GREAT line up and concept!!!!! And I’ve only heard good things about the festival. Pretty pretty please <3

  28. I love Origin because it broke my outdoor-seal! The very first full-on psy outdoor event that I’ve been to and I fell inlove! Green green grass with a wallpaper or stars, happiest vibes, most positive energy and fun-loving people. Origin is the one party apart from NYE rez that I look forward to! 4 years running strong ;) Bring on Shane Gobi again this year!! Headroom, monique pascall, broken toy and tons more!! #Magical

  29. I love Origin Festival because it makes my holiday on planet Earth way more exciting, humans are cool bleep bleep!

  30. I love origin festival because this is the ONLY festival where I went with the boys(9 of them) and ended up lost at the venue with no torch,trapped in barbwire fencing that got stuck on ALL 10 OF US for hours and we had to figure out how to get loose! HILARIOUS!!!!!! I will always look back at origin parties with the best memories made. I feel I originate from there u know ;-) P.L.U.R get ur boom on!!!

  31. I love Origin because it is going to be a gathering of my kindred souls.

I love Origin because it is going to be the MOST epic Stomp Fest ever. I love Origin just because I friggin LOVE Origin. ONE LOVE

  32. I love Origin Festival because I am a dirrrty hippy :)

  33. I love origin festival because of countless things. The bass thudding through my body, the utter lack of equanimity of those grinning faces all around me, people’s awe at the surrounding beauty, the way you feel as though every single person there is your friend. Its all about the energy and the beat that feeling in the pit of your stomach of utter joy and losing all your inhibitions. You check your worries and drama at the door and can escape to somewhere not quite like any other party a certain something special that i look forward to more more after each Origin festival i attend.

We come together to share the explosive positive energy and together we create an atmosphere that brings the people together to not only listen but to feel the music and the beats that thrive through our bloodstream. It’s not just a ‘festival’ but a place that awakens our senses and spreads the peace. It’s a place to get enjoy, be festive and realize the beauty of music,people and life. THANK YOU ORIGIN FESTIVAL!

    I love Origin festival because it was at Origin that I made friends with people i had been going to university with for 3 years, who i had never spoken to. because of Origin these new friends are some of my closest.

    I love Origin festival because of the bone crushing bass and rollin beats that made even the security guards and cleaning staff lose their shit. These same beats made me move in a way that could not be replicated by any other form of music.

    I love Origin festival because of the hard work and dedication that the organisers put in to making it the best possible party for all of us. The decor that is so good it can make you stop dancing and just stare up in amazement.

    I love origin festival because out of all the parties i’ve been to, their Sunday funday has the best vibe about it. The same vibe that when a Psy anthem drops an explosion of whistles and screams echos through the crowd and water rains down on everyone bringing relief and pleasure.

    First thing that came to mind :-)

  76. I love origin becuase its where the psy-gods of nano records come to shift the plant and throw bass in our face! Straight up the best party of the season with goodtimes events raising the bar every time. The party has the most positive vibe with the perfect blend of old school psy and the new scene comming together into psychadelic power fest!
    I’ve got too much love for origin!
    Aweeeh :D

  77. I love Origin Festival because…

    Well, I can’t finish this sentence right now because I’ve never been to one before. Unlike everyone else, I can’t reminisce about that one time I saw someone tripping balls on the psyfloor or the love & positive energy that everyone raves about. I can’t think back to the unified rhythm of the stompers or the beauty & serenity of the surrounding nature…

    All I can do is post this little entry and hopefully – with your help – after a weekend of otherworldly stomping, I’ll finally be able to complete this sentence for myself.

  78. I love origin festival, yes boy I do, one word to describe this experience..EPIC! On the next level. Lovely crowd, vibe, sound and breathtaking views. Let’s have fun coz we can!
    Stoked:)

  79. I love Origin festival because its the only place you can take naps on the side of the dance floor, find yourself in random caravans for litchi juice breaks, spend the whole day in the dam and feel like you are one with the dam, have your friends ask you what time you woke up and proudly state that you never went to sleep! And, if you ever get tired of all the heavy stomping you can take a walk up the hill and look at the millions of stars shinning above while laser lights and the lumo stage shine on the friendliest people below :)

  80. I love Origin Festival because it makes me feel alive and embodies everything i love about an outdoor: nature, incredible music and making memories with friends.

  81. i love origin because i get to RUUUUUUSH my face off.

    and peace and love and all that other shit swell.. but rushing… so sick so nice.

  82. I love Origin Festival because of the RIDICULOUS amount of effort put into the decor and sound:
    Seriously, some of best lighting, sound, set up, etc of the whole season.

    Also, the trees. Trees are sick man, and dancing in a forest just blows my brain to bits.

    Yeah I’m a hippy, I can admit it :)

    Peace

  83. I love Origin Festival because…it’s one of very few parties where you can engage your mind and soul by dressing up as a giant mushroom and wandering through the mystical Helderstroom forests while sprinkling glitter over the heaving masses and chanting “Break on through to the other side!” (Jim Morrison) before spending the entire weekend stomping in puddles of luminescent paint to heavy, reverberating bass lines and psychedelic synthesizers. Nothing quite compares to the Origin experience.

  84. I love Origin Festival because… it’s on my Birthday!!!

  85. I love Origin festival because you just gotta love origin festival .

  86. I love Origin Festival because… It’s the first party where i truly saw my arse and learned a lesson. Woke up covered in bruises, no memory of (obviously) one of the best nights of my life. Girl told us the next day ‘Check yourself before you wreck yourself’, so haven’t had a big fail since then. Growth/Self-improvement = fuck yeah!

  87. Honestly, (having never gone to one as of yet, due to the long distance) I love Origin festival because the photos look amazing.

    I’ll be able to give you a better reason next year if I can afford to come this year. Yes, that was a hint at a free ticket.

    Also, my eyes are really light blue and it hurts when I look at beautiful things like I’m bound to see at Origin. That was a hint for the Oakleys.

    Also, a pair of Salomon Boots of mine (my brand new christmas present to myself) went missing at Rezonance. They cost lots, so I’m more poor than I should be. You can take that as a hint for the tickets and glasses, or even new Salomon 4D GTX boots

  88. I love Origin Fest because… this is going to be the first outdoor trance party i will be attending:) #MakeitHappen :)

  89. I love origin festival because it falls on the perfect date …whilst I’m in CapeTown and it is the sickest of all the festivals I look to attend regardless of winning a ticket but let’s be honest the only thing better then the origin festival is winning free tickets to the origin festival

  90. I love Origin Festival because… Rezonance just didn’t hit the spot.

  91. I love origin festival because everything is amasing about it! the decor is insane the music is insane the people are amasing and the vibe is the best, definately beats all other trance parties…you feel like you are in a gypsy community moving from village to village. Please can i have the tickets otherwise i mase well have died in 2012.peace

  92. I love Origin because… it shall be a journey of colourful serendipity, entwined with the dancing energy of a recently re-discovered soul family and fellow male reflection of my spirit… I love Origin because… it shall be my first experience of galavanting to this mass-congregation of sublime beings and whimsical sound rhythms. I love Origin because… three adventurous, nomadic years have passed since my feet have floated upon an outdoor dance floor and these eyes have observed the smiling hearts of the fellow magical beings who radiate the exact love for the nature music. I love Origin because… I love to love :) <3

    Blessings and metta to you all :)

  93. I love Origin because I am South African, Capetonian and it’s in my blood to make the pilgrimage to stomp in the African sun and feel the scense of community that you can only feel at Origin and looking good in a pair of OAKLEY sunglasses from Oakley South Africa, that is know what summer’s about

  94. I love Origin Festival because its one of the few places where masses of peace loving, tree hugging, trance tripping, soul seeking, mind blowing, space jumping, negative hating, earth conserving, personality expressing, all night partying and no sleeping people meet and become one*

  95. I love the Origin Festival, simply because it loves me… When I’m there the love surrounding me is profound. You will not see so many smiling faces anywhere else but at an outdoor. One love, peace and respect all round! <3

  96. Wow …. Right now I LOVE ORIGIN, coz its the only thing keepin me goin!!!
    I will be on a plane in 2 weeks & outta this freezing weather.
    Enduring minus 14 degrees & working myself silly just to be able pay for a plane ticket over to sunny South Africa & going to the best party ever….. BRING ON ORIGIN, I need to see happy, shiny, awesome people & the sun. Love & light to all ….. Mwah.

  97. Hi everyone ;) I love Origin because of the gathering of Origin fans, far and near to a most beautiful venue, and the sky and the clouds and the breeze and the sun and the trees. Not to mention the ‘natural plunge pool to meet and have a ‘cocktail’ in the delicious day with friends, and the beat rolling in the background.. makes you feel like your on the french riviera! The music is awesome! OMG and to be able to party with my bestest friend again with the amaaaazzzzing art & decor ‘hybrid earth stargate’ to the dimension of trance and the electonic sounds! At other trance parties I meet the most wicked and cool peeps on the dancefloor usually on Saturdays… And I have absolute faith that at Origin its going to be mind blowing and beautiful all at once, shared with the most lovely people. I have no doubt Wow man! The walks from the car to the tent to the dancefloor and the crazy conversations and amazing individual camp sites, all very interesting and bringing back original neighbourliness. Yes, thats it… bringing back original, the things that make people and dance and nature and sound beautiful (-_(-_(-_(-_-)_-)_-)_-) Just stamp me, “Sponsored by Origin for eagerness and participative Origin Style” and I’ll kiss you, Mwah xxx Bestest wishes Origin for 2013!

  106. I love Origin festival because at my first Origin I walked into the forest and the first thing I saw was a “Welcome Home” sign. My heart was touched and the weekend only got better. The music is amazing, the stompers are friendly and hug me loads as I walked to and from the dance floor. They have two beautifully decorated dance floors, a cool river and shady camping area! They also have the best eats, clothing treats and art display! Despite having all of that, the thing that I will always remember and love about Origin the most is that “Welcome Home” sign. :)

    Regan and Monique are of the few organisers that still do it for the Love

  121. I love Origin Festival because… Its a chance to leave the world behind and lose yourself in the festivities….

  122. I love Origin Festival because it’s one of a kind
    A special event that will blow everyone’s mind.
    I’d love to forget all my pre-party frowns
    So please let me stomp on those breath-taking grounds –
    With big oaks all around to provide us with shade
    And fresh water dams in which we can wade;
    We’d party together as one and the same -
    All gathered together, with like-minded aim.
    We’d jump and go crazy and have such fun –
    From dawn ‘til dusk, in that hot, shining sun.
    I’d love to hear Headroom and Broken Toy play -
    And from the trance floor I doubt I would stray.
    By the end of weekend my body would hurt;
    But I’d be smiling non-stop and covered in dirt –
    What an awesome time I would have had –
    To have it end would make me happily sad.
    Please let me win tickets to this amazing event;
    You have no idea how much it’d mean if I went.

  123. I love Origin because it is the most beautiful festivals I have ever encountered, in every way.
    From the music to the decor to the people, it’s like a world apart from this one. It makes me feel euphoric thinking about it.

    The main reason I would love to win the opportunity to attend this festival
    is so that my best friend and I can have one last farewell stomp together(shes leaving the country).

    This opportunity would be beyond appreciated.

  124. “I love Origin Festival because… Its the one place that make me feel safe, We can dance, party, consume alcoholic drinks and not worry about driving anywhere, what a awsome stomping party :-)

  125. I love Origin because its a space from reality, its a space you can allow your mind and heart to go on an adventure. You can be free and forget whats behind and whats to follow. You can ignore all thats around you but feel the music and get lost in Nature. You can be riské, you can be you, you can be who you choose. I love origin because for 2 days life is paused and adventure is in play.<3

  126. I love Origin festival because… it’s freakin ORIGIN festival?! Need i say more?

  130. I LOVE ORIGIN FESTIVAL!
    Origin is dramatic, bright colours that paint our awakened souls.
    Origin is dancing till your feet hurt, and then dancing even more.
    Origin is a state of being, wherein you are your most alive, most authentic and most spirited self.
    Origin is a magnetic force of pleasure and consciousness – seducing us with music that fills the air and lightens our core.
    Origin is laughing with friends, and smiling with strangers.
    Origin is an escape – from realism, from routine, from hurt and from normalcy.
    Origin is opportunity – to breathe, to be
    Origin is golden. These days are golden.

    Defined, “Origin” is the beginning of something’s existence.
    For me, Origin Festival is not my genesis – it is an outlet of the wonder that exists within me.
    It is my colour, my soul, my happiness, my adventure.

    I LOVE ORIGIN.

  131. I love Origin Festival because to me it has the idiosyncratic properties of being the most prodigious occurrence as it provides the most mind thumping mellifluous music, beguiling optics, ambrosial foods and all round impeccably coordinated services. It’s gonna be rad yo

  132. I love Origin Festival because it brings us all together in peace and harmony!

  133. I love origin festival because it allows me to become a freak
    But not in the negative sense, in the sense that I become unique
    There’s no one there to judge, hold a grudge or be demeaning
    Just be yourself, and no matter what your spirit will be gleaming
    And seeming; to rise to another dimension
    Dancing in heaven will cause you to have angelic perception
    Psychedelic trance is like a beautiful infection
    Travelling straight into your main vein like a happiness injection
    :)

  134. I love Origin Festival because it’s like going into another world. You leave all your worries behind to spend a magical weekend camping in an enchanted forest, which leads out onto rolling lawns where a kaleidoscope of colour on the dancefloor awaits you. To top it off you have a gorgeous flowing river to cool you down! Everyone is happy and everyone is smiling. You’re guaranteed to have a good time at Origin.

  136. I love Origin because i am filled with love to my core,to my very centre,my Origin. I have surrended to the devine to let its infinite light and energy flow through my vessel and towards everything and everyone around me. Wherever i am,in that moment,i can go back to my centre where i am,you are the centre of the universe,your/my Origin!

  137. I love origin because of this.

    This common space with its common pulse
    This orchestrated mess like nothing else.
