The Basique Festival 2020 is bringing you the best in electronic music once again! Bazique is said to be a series of ‘extraordinary events, a carnival of entertainment, a circus of performances, a bounty of beats from all corners of the globe, and a gathering place for legends, lovers and like-minded souls’. In fact, the festival has become so popular, it was voted the ‘World’s Best Boutique Festival ‘ at the Tuvalu International Festival Awards in 2019.

“Our gift to you; an adventure-filled excursion and a multi-dimensional playground – the hardest part will be deciding what to be doing when and where.”

When and where

The multi-day electronic festival is set to take place from 13 to 15 March 2020 in Ruitersvlei Estate south of the Paarl.

“Our beautiful new home, Ruitersvlei Estate, has a big, warm water swimming dam, an epic playa for the three night time stages and is only 35 mins from Cape Town, near Paarl which means almost guaranteed sunshine!”

Bazique stages and line-up

Bazique boasts various stages. The seven stages includes The Kraal, Corona Ukudlala Beach, La Fee Verte (an electric ballroom), art cars and Journeys End Island (a floating stage on the middle of a lake).

You can expect ten international DJs, 52 Sourh African DJs, 26 performing artists, 24 installation artists and ‘a magnificent blur of pop-up parties’. The line-up includes Ticon, DJ Richard, Marcus Worgull, Floyd Lavine, Kanan K7, Dee, Anthea, Ivan Turanjanin, Toby 2 Shoes, Bruno Morphet, Nia Blaq and Sacred Sun, Lectric Licks, Dj Ivan, Jews For Techno, Candice Heyns and El Gordo among many more.
