Wolfkop Weekender is a series of boutique festivals in South Africa’s now burgeoning electronic music scene. The season consists of Lilo river flow in mid-summer (January) and Power Flower Picnic once the orange groves bear fruit in spring (August-October).
Set along the Olifants Rivier (Elephants River) grassy banks and limited to 600 lucky souls. These events are always in hot demand among those with a discerning ear for delightful electronic beats.
Expect to sip on refreshing citrus themed cocktails while frolicking in the cooling river water. All soundtracked by a distinctly South African lineup with a smattering of international guest selectors to keep you moving & grooving all weekend.
The Wolfkop Weekender Venue
Lying within the Cederberg mountains, nestled in the orange groves of the Cape floral region, is Wolfkop Weekender’s home.
The Wolfkop Nature Reserve is an idyllic backdrop for a series of boutique festivals to take place. And the organisers do a fine job of infusing these surroundings into the programming.
By day you can expect lazy beats to lull you into submission whilst lounging on your favourite floaty. The evening’s musical curation will lure you under the central boma and off your aquatic chariot.
On-site accommodation is available in the form of camping, glamping and rustic cottages.
From Cape Town city you can drive either the N7 (182km) or the R44 (206km). The journey time is roughly 2hrs to Citrusdal.
If you are coming from outside of South Africa then your most direct option is to fly into Cape Town International airport which has plenty of daily flights from Europe and the UK.
The other is to fly into Johannesburg International airport (O.R.Thambo) and catch a connecting flight to Cape Town. Johannesburg is the busiest airport and also the most well connected in South Africa.
