Grietfest was a unique inner city experience filled with headline acts, must see up and coming dj’s and performers. The venue its self was a must see, set in the heart of central Jozi “the container yard” held the secret to this events success as there were large open spaces between the dance floors with audible vortex created off the echo on the containers with certain points intertwined with quite creative harmony.
Phfat killed the stage with his performance which was to us THE PERFORMANCE OF THE EVENT. His energy was exhilarating and the effectiveness in which he included the crowd made everyone on the floor feel like they were taking part in a live collaboration, as like his past performances he personalized his stage time to the very unique and diverse Grietfest crowd.
Ivy Lab was another explosive performance, Popartlive was there in full force with the best beats at hand, As well as all the way from the UK Billy Kenny whose set was electric from the symphonic beats to the pulse of the crowd vibrating to every sound except for a slight power cut which was handled like a pro!!
From the lighting and stage set up, including “the secret stage” was all expertly designed to fulfill each and every party seekers needs from inside container chill areas, with couches and lights, next door to beer pong tables in a lumo settings and let’s not forget the Olmeca Golden surprise booth with a selection of gifts for lucky winners.
All and all the event was a massive success with only one unfortunate part being of a brutal attack on victim “Brandon Swanepol” in which the reaction from the organizers was phenomenal, to the extent of helping with a fundraiser for his legal and medical Fee’s
We thank Grietfest and the organizers for allowing the Jozi-Deep team to be a part of the festival and the event as a whole was truly incredible and a definite must see in Jozi!!
