Win Tickets To The Village!


The time is upon us once again to embark on a journey into the unknown… The Village is proud to re-introduce The Gathering. After the overwhelming success of our 5 year birthday celebration and the conclusion of yet another great outdoor season in the Cape, our aim is to re-unite all walks of like-minded beings to celebrate a collective consciousness and come together as one to delve deeper into the depths of The Land of Wondering Dreams. We have assembled a vast array of talented musical maestro’s to tease and tantalize your senses as we transport you to and from yet another ground breaking production by The Village.

On a more serious note…The Village has undertaken to donate R5 per ticket sold for the event to the Raasbekkies Crèche – (endorsed by The Pebbles Project) located in the small farming community as you enter the venue. For a long time now, the children of this area have been in dire need of a school, in order to promote education and a decent guide to their younger years we have undertaken to assist as much as humanly possible. It is through your loyal support that we are asking not for financial donations but trade donations. If anyone who is attending has any old school equipment or stationary, structural (i.e. desks, chairs, carpentry, plumbing, building skills etc) children’s books or anything you think might be of use to the crèche then please feel free to bring it along with you. Any assistance in the matter would be greatly appreciated.

  30. Village was the first party I had ever been to, and it was such an experience that i have been to every village since (2 years), but after the recent semester, many subjects failed and allowance cuts, i cannot afford it this one. please let me carry on with the tradition!! :)

  31. On the cheerful village green,
    Skirted round with houses small,
    All the boys and girls are seen,
    Playing there with hoop and ball.

    Now they frolic hand in hand,
    Making many a merry chain;
    Then they form a warlike band,
    Marching o’er the level plain.

    Now ascends the worsted ball,
    High it rises in the air,
    Or against the cottage wall,
    Up and down it bounces there.

    Then the hoop, with even pace,
    Runs before the merry throngs;
    Joy is seen in every face,
    Joy is heard in cheerful songs.

    Rich array, and mansions proud,
    Gilded toys, and costly fare,
    Would not make the little crowd
    Half so happy as they are.

    Then, contented with my state,
    Where true pleasure may be seen,
    Let me envy not the great,
    On a cheerful village green.

  32. Over the weekend of the village its my 21st…… I thought of planning a big party but how can I do better than an event such as village….. Crazy music beautiful people and great place…. Will definitly be one to remember( sorry parents u have to give this one a miss ;)

    One ticket to bring them all and in the village bind them……give me my precious…. :)

  51. My bestie is leaving Cape Town for Johannesburg soon but before she goes I want to open her up to what Village and this beautiful city has to provide!! Village is more than a festival for me it is a connection to this worlds beauties and love and I want to share that with her!! Please give me the opportunity to take her to her first village and open her up to the magic that this festival has to provide so that she can leave this place knowing what it means to be truly happy, free, to know what it means to have music flow through your body, and how to get down and dirty with the earth :)

  52. Cant afford it & dont wanna miss my fav boi Deep filth’s Bday simple as that

  53. Kk Pele would MOST DEF be the Mayor of My Village!

    He is the one person who completely lives trance and what trance stands for!!

    He showed me and proved to me that.. Trance isn’t just about the beat, it’s about the movement of the beat, the sound, the life behind the music you are listening to. Its about the clear blue sky above you, its about the feet stompin to the sounds around you. Its about the colours that encapture the movement.

    Listen to it the wrong way and you’ll miss everything….

    Please let me come stomp to the beat at THE Village 2011, at THE GATHERING alongside Kk ♥

  54. Did you guys choose yet cause im a day late :/ know what will be awesome? Me! going to the Village 2011 THE GATHERING <3 ^_^ everyone enjoy your time at the Village hopefully ill be able to afford it eek! PEACE!
