“Circle Of Dreams” – Riviersonderend / Endless River
CAPE TOWN – SOUTH AFRICA – GPS 34*08’16.27”S 19*59’43.14”E
A place in consciousness, where you are one with your soul and its purpose to enjoy every moment of your incarnation. A place which invites the contemplation of divine mystery, and encourages an attitude of spiritual openness not necessarily where answers are grasped or understood but rather where questions are asked, conversations occur, rituals are perpetuated, dances are performed and silence is heard.

A place that exudes harmony, beauty & peace & has the magic of trees & hidden forest beings & the mysteries of the ancients. It has wide mountain views, yet is completely secluded. A beautiful Private forested River Party Sanctuary giving us a magical party space, perfect for multiple days of psychedelic adventure. An Endless River, underneath ancient majestic mountains ranges. The cry of the African fish eagle, a lush forest, a circle of oak trees used by travelers for 100’s of years as a sanctuary, shaded camping for every tent & a beautiful river for swimming.

Open Source is a collaboration of like-minded, dedicated Psychedelic Freedom Fighters committed to the revival of an authentic & profoundly transformative vibe in the outdoor party scene. This is realized through our unique family gathering in the magical realms of the Circle of Dreams, a river & forest camping setting located near the bewitching Mother City of Cape Town, on the Southern tip of Africa.

‘Open Source’ is an ideal initiated in the technological community as a revolutionary response to elitist corporate culture & reflects a struggle against oppression that resonates on many levels within our world & every living being in it. This renegade movement promotes free, universal access & redistribution of a design or idea & its implementation. It is typically created as a collaborative effort in which all improve upon the code & share the changes within the community. It unifies us as co-creators of transformative acts in our evolution & expansion as a global, synchronized family.

The Psy-Trance Community is an expression of this integrated remix culture & holds exceptional power & responsibility for unity, harmony and global respect. We believe that by aligning with the open source paradigm we can unlock this potential as a radical catalyst for change. As small as this change may be, we recognize the significance of every creative element in the bigger picture, and hold conviction in our inherent role as light-workers for conscious metamorphosis.

Across two decades of whole-hearted involvement & allegiance to this community, we have come to know and work with many sensational people from all over the world who echo this cause. People who are committed to leaving behind all illusions of separateness – including politics, race and religion – by connecting as one through music and sharing the moment. Who believe that the road is as important as the destination itself? It is our goal to encourage & assist the collaboration of these visionaries, as well as the expansion of this awareness to others, sharing the gift of giving without wanting back in return.

The venue is open throughout the year for camping & small functions, birthdays, etc. When there is a festival, should you wish to arrive before or stay longer, you may camp @ R50 per person per day. Bookings & full festival tickets required:
