Jungala Festival 2016


30 April - 2 May 2016

We welcome you back onto the forest floor, to reunite in ritual.
You are the chosen ones.

The universe is a song and Life is its dance,
Every atom in constant rhythmic motion.
Mankind however, resonates at its own frequency,
Dictated by the ticking of the clock, lost in the chaos...

But the music calls to him once more...

The tribe who has forgotten its roots is awakened by the chanting,
An ancient calling, a desire to return to the Jungle.
To be moved by the sound of cosmos,
and tune in to the great unknown.

The beat goes on..

Now listen closely as you hear the music drifting though the trees,
As the mystical melody draws you closer.
Once again it is time for the tribe to gather,
To dance, discover & embrace the magic that is Jungala.

// Thinking Green

Car Pool

Carpooling is a more environmentally friendly and sustainable way to travel as sharing journeys reduces carbon emissions, traffic congestion and the need for parking spaces. By having more people using one vehicle, carpooling reduces each person's travel costs such as fuel costs and the stress of driving. The more the merrier.. but only one person per seat belt!

Giving Back

Please bring tinned food, old clothes, blankets, toys or anything you think is fit to donate. We will be accepting all donations at the gate and giving back to the Saron community police trauma unit.
Over the past few years PsynOpticz Productions and Jungala Festival have proudly donated food, pillows, blankets, baby food, baby clothes and baby blankets, nappies, baby toys and much more to accommodate all the trauma victims of the area. This initiative setup by the Saron Police is called the Thula Thula Room.

We also have a new initiative we are supporting this year. Raising the Rhino. Raising the Rhino raises funds for security improvements, increased public awareness, care of orphaned and injured animals, and community involvement and education programs. Check out the organisation and the great work they do: ww.facebook.com/RAISINGtheRHINO

Buffalo Drift, Ruigtevlei Farm

Gates open on 30 April at 8am. No one will be allowed access to the venue before this time.


From Cape Town:

▲ Take the N1 out of Cape Town, heading in the direction of Paarl.
◄ Take the Stellenbosch / Wellington off ramp.
◄ Turn left in the direction of Wellington (R44).
▲ Drive straight with the R44 into Wellington.

❤ Come through the gates & follow the signs. 

Drop & Go

Your driver will be given a Drop and Go Car Pass at the gate which allows you to be dropped in a designated area near camping section with all your camping gear.

Keep it clean

At the gate each car will be given a dustbin bag, please keep it on your camp site and throw all your waste away. There are bins allocated all over the venue. LEAVE NO TRACE is more than just a fun concept.. it is so much more enjoyable to dance and enjoy the venue when you have taken the time to assist in keeping it beautiful. There are cleaners on site for the duration of the event, but thousands of cigarette stompies are not easily removed. Help, be kind, assist, make an effort to maintain our beautiful venue. This kind of attitude is contagious.
