Littlegig festival is a 24-hour showcase of musicians, DJ’s, chefs, winemakers, artists, designers, speakers and contemporary dancers. The 24-hour event takes place in a forest 40 minutes outside Cape Town on 17-18 February 2018. Tickets, which are limited, start at R2 300 and include all food and drink.

Our international acts include multi-instrumentalist, carnival-style storyteller Stelth Ulvang, Cameroonian-New Zealand singer and beatmaker Estère, Kenyan DJ/producer Blinky Bill Music and celebrated UK comedian and bassist for Pink Floyd Guy Pratt (Official) who will do a musical-comedy performance.

Performance artist Dear_Ribane - who have recently done projects for Nike, i-D magazine, Chanel and Kenzo - will open the electronic stage.

Littlegig is unlike any other festival in that all food and drink are included in the ticket price. Only premium alcohol and coffee brands are served throughout the event from a string of pop-up bars (with no queues) in fantastical locations. Lamb riblets, giant Vietnamese crystal rolls, wild mushroom kebabs, butter chicken and more are served from food stations dotted around the festival forest. For the real foodies there are 2 additional experiences, a Paired Food and Wine Tasting featuring 6 top female chefs and winemakers (Ash Heeger X Nadia Newton Johnson; Jenny Ward X Nadia Barnard; Vanie Padayachee X Jocelyn Wilson), and a 6-course Chef’s Table Dinner for 50 guests by Eat Out Top 10 chef Arno Janse van Rensburg (Janse & Co.)

Surprises - like a convenience store, where you can stock up (for free, of course) on sweets, chocolates, suntan cream, condoms; a 10-meter pavlova brought out after dark, a hot chip station at the 2am secret after party, and a surprise taste experience on a dance-floor when you’re least expecting it – are part of the magical Littlegig food experience.

There are 8 categories of Camping and Glamping, ranging from tents with blow-up mattresses to bell tents the size of a bedroom, with Egyptian cotton linen. For the 2018 event self-camping has been introduced for the first time, at no extra charge. And for those who would rather sleep in their own beds, there’s a taxi rank at the festival, which is just 40 minutes’ drive from Cape Town.

Fashion, dress-up and creative freedom are the heartbeat of Littlegig. The Concept Store - the only place at the festival where money changes hands - presents vintage and bespoke festival ranges by exciting local designers such as Marianne Fassler Fashion Designer, Mami Wata Surf, RICH MNISI, Neo Serati, David Brits for GOOD GOOD GOOD, Sheila-Madge Bakker, Lukhanyo Mdingi and Dr Pachanga. Adjoining the store – and sharing its music lineup and free Krone champagne bar – is the Salon, with 12 top stylists and make-up artists who will transform guests, at no cost.

Each area at Littlegig is designed by a top stylist, under the creative lead of Littlegig’s Bielle Bellingham, former Elle Decoration editor. Architect and artist duo Sean and Justine Mahoney have designed a 6-meter metallic inflatable artwork for the island, there will be a Deep Sleep tent where festival goers will lie suspended in ‘cocoons’ listening to regenerative brainwave music, and there will be a surprise live installation on the basketball court during the headline DJ’s set. Dance, performance, comedy and magic will be making their Littlegig debuts. Performance art pioneers Dear Ribane will open the Night Stage. Also on the lineup are London comedian and Pink Floyd bassist Guy Pratt, contemporary dance outfit Indoni Dance Academy, and multi award-winning illusionist Stuart Lightbody.

24 hours of connection, creativity and convenience.
