EVENT REVIEW: VORTEX Parallel Universe – Easter Weekend



✧Parallel Universe✧Easter Weekend✧

Was on Saturday 31st March – Monday 2nd April

Vortex Parallel Universe returned once again to the circle of dreams,Riviersonderend for the annual Easter weekend gathering. Vortex promised a three day psychedelic trance universe, a space where one can experience conscious vibrations that lead to new perceptions of mind expansion, connectedness, togetherness, happiness, peace and love.


For those that haven’t had the pleasure of experiencing what the circle of dreams has to offer it is a magical little forest that provides the option of sun or shade, a swimmable river, foot friendly terrain, a dance floor encircled by oak trees, hot showers and bathroom facilities. It’s the perfect balance between nature and comforts necessities.

This was home to a family of old and new friendly faces, happy and connected through music and love.  Together we experienced top quality production from beginning to end.

The main stage was shared by international and local talent, when trying to compare them we found ourselves counting blessings as we have so many exceptionally talented artists right on our doorstep.  The music was sensational and seamless accompanied by stunning yet humble decor that did not take away from the beauty of the natural surroundings, left room for imagination and made use of the latest “technologies and techniques”.  Some of our musical favourites were Liquid Viking, The Commercial Hippies, Itone and Vertical Mode.

The chill floor “Loka love tent” set on the river provided a peaceful space where one could take time out to re-centre and reenergise. Special mention to the sounds of Ramity. They were fresh, uplifting and comforting.

As usual there was an incredible selection of food vendors and stalls; our all time favourite is Atma pure vegetarian Cuisine.

VORTEX by Night

It was disappointing to see many cigarette butts on the floor.  This was no fault of the organisers; there were butt buckets all around the dance floor, cleaners and bins!  I call out to all attendees… It is our responsibility to keep the environment clean and leave no trace.


Vortex promised and she delivered!  The entire crew from gate staff, security, bar staff through to the cleaners were friendly and dedicated to improving the experience…


Thank you to Heather, Jamie and all involved.
