Tis the season for carols...
Become A Party Animal On a Farm And Celebrate Togetherness
Dress up and dance ‘til dawn, indoors and outdoors, on a farm in the suburbs + free entry on your birthday
Imagine a dance party with a night market on a farm that’s not out of town. Well it exists and it’s called the Farmhouse Party.
It’s happening in Schaapkraal on 8 June 2019. This one doubles as the event’s first birthday party, and if it’s your birthday too, you get in free.
Four friends wanted to bring people together in a space where they could be themselves, to build new friendships and bond through different genres of music.
So Ayesha Binkowski, Monique Van Den Vendt, Avon Abrahams and Stacey Petersen created the Farmhouse tri-monthly event to promote diversity through music, race and age “... just like a farm where all animals live in peace together, we want to create a place for all party animals to party,” says Petersen.
ON A FARM
Sound and decor are by Dranged and Psytrix. Both dance floors have their own decor set up around the DJ booths. The psytrance floor features lots of colours and geometric patterns, fluorescent lighting for the neon effect, layers and lighting. The hip-hop and trap floor offer less lighting and more hip-hop art and posters of legends such as 2Pac or newbies like Cardi B.
THE BIRTHDAY THEME
Because it’s the one-year birthday of the event, the decor follows a kids birthday party theme with a lot of colourful balloons, streamers and bunting flags all over.
The event takes place on an industrial farm in Schaapkraal, complete with ablutions and security. There is plenty of secure parking and you can find the Philippi farm by popping in this Google Maps address.
DID YOU KNOW?
The small-scale farms in Phillippi produce around 80% of Cape Town’s vegetables?
DID YOU SAY CANNIBBLES?
Young entrepreneurs will be showcasing their food, clothing or inventions. Food vendors will be offering gourmet burgers, tikka chicken, boerie and chips, vegan food and even cannibbles from Green Globe Eats who make delicious brownies. There will be a licensed bar, beer garden, coffee stalls and vape bars. You can expect hemp clothing stalls and tie-dye T-shirts at the night market too.
