Origin is a full weekend of conscious partying as the techno-shamanic tribes from the cities, towns, fields and forests gather in a valley of breathtaking natural beauty to celebrate life and togetherness.
As one Africa’s brightest shining lights for psychedelic music, art, and culture, Origin strives to promote Peace, Love, Unity, and Respect for all, as we strengthen our own global community based on conscious party ethics and respect for nature.
All communities are important to us and as such we are privileged to be able to offer a percentage of our profits every year to development projects under the guidance of the local municipality.
Festivals are about participation, if you have any ideas to offer, installations you'd like to include or anything else please feel free to contact us via our fan page to discuss further.Contact Us!

Our home is the beautiful Elandskloof tucked away between Villiersdorp and Greyton, only 125 Km from Cape Town. This lush green valley with its fresh mountain streams, welcoming forest filled with Oaks, YellowWoods and Redwoods; and towering mountain backdrops, beckons us once more for an adventure in connecting, laughing, relaxing and enjoying nature in all its glory.
