Origin Festival has a strong history of recycling almost 99% of the waste generated at our events. We have an efficient recycling team on site who work through out the weekend. We even have recycled art work which features around the venue.
All the care in the world is taken to leave the venue as we found it with the exception of a few peg holes and some missing grass patches due to your love of dancing and need to keep your feet hopping and stomping.
LEAVE NO TRACE
As much as we love them, this event is not for kids.

Elandskloof Farm, Helderstroom.
We return to the beautiful Elandskloof tucked away between Villiersdorp and Greyton, only 125 Km from Cape Town. This lush green valley with its fresh mountain streams, welcoming forest filled with Oaks, YellowWoods and Redwoods; and towering mountain backdrops beckons us once more for an adventure in connecting, laughing, relaxing and enjoying nature in all its glory.

1. Absolutely No Fires!
We hate being serious, but seriously guys, any moron who thinks making a fire at a big event during peak fire-season deserves to be cooked upon an open fire themselves.
2. No Dogs (or other pets) allowed
as much as we love em, it just is not fair on them or other party goers.
3. No Littering, No Glass!
There will be plenty of bins on site – please use them. Glass will not be allowed at the event, so please remember to bring your drinks in plastic containers. Promotional flyers will also not be allowed except at the entrance upon arrival and exit. (Please contact us if you are Promoter and wish to advertise at the event)
4. No Butts!!
This is very important – please don’t throw them on the ground – if you have a pocket ashtrays from a past Origin or Earthdance please bring it along and use it! We hope to be making more available too, please ask for yours at the gate if you are a smoker.
5. No ‘business’ or loo paper in the bush!
This is also really important. We are making a special effort to provide sufficient toilets and to keep them clean for you.
6. Don’t pollute the water with grease or soap!
Rinse off in the river, and when you feel you need a real wash, there will be showers available.
When you arrive, please drive slowly along the access road without stopping until you reach the ticket station, stay on the road, please park where you are asked to park and camp only within the designated festival area and don’t remove or damage any plants, animals or natural objects.
