Flamjangeled Tea Party 2015

In 2014 it looked as if the Tea had ran out. It was a year when there was simply no Tea to be served. This meant that tea-lovers, dancers, flamzanians and pranksters everywhere would wander through the year in even more loony abandon than before, rationing their memories and expressions that were collected from the good Tea years that came before. But 2015 is a year of good things and magical occurrence, bringing the beloved boutique festival, the Flamjangeled Tea Party back with a promise of more delightful dilly and silly than ever.  The three day festival is a collage of fancy, radical dress, live music, natural beauty and childish games. Sounds like we could all use a cup! Expect to be entertained by the likes of Felix Leband, John Wizards, Al Bairre and the Nomadic Orchestra, to name only a handful. Some of the highlights include classic silent movie screenings brought to life with curated soundtracks by infamous DJs, dancing in the mirrored forest and the best dressed flamzanian competition. When? 27th March - 29 March, gates open on Friday at 2pm. Where? 125km outside of Cape Town at Elandskloof Farm, Helderstroom. Tickets? Pre-sale tickets are online at R450 or R500 at the gate. Accompanied kids under 12 get in for free.
