1st – 3rd of December at Anura Wine Estate. This is #SynergyLive2017!

We took a little break, but Synergy Live is BACK! We’ve found a new home just 45 kilometres from the city, with all the beautiful scenery and spectacle you’ve come to expect from the Synergy Live festival experience. Think amazing music and sound, killer decor, mind-blowing audiovisuals, multiple stages, the best in artisanal food and 3 fun-filled days and nights in nature with friends old and new. We’ve even got a few surprises up our sleeves, so expect the unexpected!

Ft: wAFF, Paranoid London, De la swing, Dino Lenny, SHADED, Joeski & more!

🌍🌍 THE VENUE 🌍🌍

With current water crisis levels, we had to sadly say goodbye to Theewaterskloof – our home for the last few years. Though we’ll miss the times spent there, we’re excited for a fresh start at our new venue, Anura Wine Estate ! Located an easy 45km outside of Cape Town on the foothills of the Simonsberg Mountains, Anura Estate is a nature-lovers oasis. With rolling green forests, stunning mountain vistas, large open spaces and a sparkling clear dam, conditions are perfect for three days of summer fun…

A new venue means a new layout, and we’ve been putting the finishing touches on something really special. With reduced walking distances, shaded camping and scenic stages, this promises to be our best year yet. Feel the soft grass underfoot, take in the beauty of the Simonsberg and soak up the sun – welcome to Synergy Live at Anura!

🔈🔈 THE MUSIC 🔊🔊

We’re switching things up a little this year with a new sound direction, new stages, new collaborators and a few other little surprises that we think are going to put serious smiles on your dials! Over the years, we’ve always strived to bring the sound of the underground with acts and artists on the cutting-edge of their craft. Synergy Live 2017 is no different so prepare for a weekend of good vibrations and sonic sensations!

With some of the best in Cape Town’s food trucks, market stalls and artisanal food purveyors, we’ve got those munchies sorted! Whether you’re after a smoothie to replenish the vitamins lost along the way, a power pizza to boost that midnight rave stamina, or something light to munch midday, you’ll find all the stuff to tickle your taste buds at The Market Place. Come hungry!

🕶🎪 THE TRADER SQUARE 🎪🕶

For those looking for a little retail therapy, festival style, The Trader Square will feature arts, crafts and official festival merchandise for those little musical mementos. Get everything you need for topping up gift credit with your significant other, replacing lost sunnies, or impressing that fine young thing at the beach bar at our mini mall in the woods.

If you’ve partied a little hard or you’ve picked up a UDI (unidentified drunken injury), The Trader Square is also the place that you’ll find our Medical Tent where a team of highly trained professionals will take care of any musical malady you might have acquired.

To apply for a vendor or food stall, please email stalls@synergylive.co.za. Each stall is priced individually, based on the type, number of staff, size and goods sold.

🥂🥂 ANURA CHAMPAGNE & WINE BAR 🥂🥂

For those who are looking for a touch of sophistication and a place to get away from it all, the Anura Champagne & Wine Bar is for you. Sip on a fine Savvy B or share a bottle of bubbles while relaxing on the comfy day beds, or have a nibble from the cheese board while soaking up the sun. And for those that just can’t make their mind up, let the folk from Anura guide you through a selection of their finest wines from the tasting menu, after all this is what lazy summer days are made of.

🏆🏆 ACTIVATION AREAS 🏆🏆

As always, Synergy Live will be a hive of activity with sponsors and partners bringing their Activation A-game! Whether it’s chill out lounges, secret spots, or drinks and prize giveaways, you’ll find plenty to see and do thanks to our party partners. Keep an eye out for some surprises too!

⛺⛺ CAMPING ⛺⛺

Ah yes, what would a festival weekend be without camping in canvas! Just because the music stops, the good times don’t have to. Make new friends, find new love, and let your hair down without having to worry about negotiating the roads after a solid night of partying. This isn’t quite roughing it though, as our campsites will feature the latest in festival infrastructure with regularly cleaned showers and toilets, lighting and full time security so that you can leave your favourite hoodie in your tent safe in the knowledge that it will be there when you get back. Your best mate probably won’t be though (we’ve heard he digs to get down).

🏕✨ THE HEARTBREAK MOTEL 🏕✨

Calling all glampers! Heartbreak Motel will once again be setting up a tented village of excellence at Synergy Live 2017. For the uninitiated, we’re talking a camp experience where you can live festival life to the full, without worrying about pitching tents and lugging cumbersome gear around. Done for the night? Retire to your own little chill patch to relax and sleep in comfort. It’s still close enough to the action to feel like you’re in the middle and, best of all, since there’s no pitching or packing down necessary, you won’t miss a moment of the time of the madness. All tents include mattresses, linen, a light, a bin, access to an exclusive chill zone and Heartbreak Motel showers and toilets.

✔✔ FESTIVAL CHECK LIST ✔✔

We’ve done our best to make sure that you can get pretty much everything you need at the festival itself, so we recommend packing as light as possible to avoid lugging half your room back and forth between the car, tent and stages. We also humbly request that you leave no trace and ensure that everything you bring you dispose of properly or take back home with you. Less is definitely more when it comes to festival packing!

Certain items are a no-go, so please do not pack any of the following:

– Glass Bottles. Standard festival procedure – they are a dangerous fire and safety hazard and will be confiscated. ⛔
– Excessive alcohol or food. We’re not saying you can’t bring enough to fill your belly over the weekend, but anything over a reasonable amount where we suspect you might be trying to start a little campsite hustle, and we might have something to say. Again, no glass containers please.
– No dodgy goods! Persons suspected of carrying out illegal and/or offensive activities onsite may be searched and face eviction and or arrest. ⛔
– Absolutely NO animals (except registered guide dogs), sound systems, generators, kites, fireworks, fires or burning materials of any kind will be allowed on site. ⛔
– No professional filmmaking equipment except by those who have obtained express permission from Synergy Live beforehand. ⛔
– Persons using fireworks or making fires will be evicted from site.
– Alcohol / Soft Drink Policy: You are allowed to bring in your own alcohol (for consumption in the camping areas) but only up to a reasonable amount per person. You will be asked to leave excess quantities outside the event and this will be enforced. You will NOT be allowed to re–enter the festival site with alcohol once you’ve come in the first time. You will not be allowed to bring in glass bottles of any kind. Alcohol cannot be brought into the main festival site from the campsite. We have fully licensed bars with alcoholic & soft drinks available at reasonable prices.
