♥ THE MAGICAL VENUE ~ THE CIRCLE OF DREAMS ♥
Endless River / Riviersonderend / Cape Town – South Africa
Fairies on root and Mother City crawlers alike, we are the bird of fire, just in another light.
★ DIRECTIONS ★
From CT – Take N2 past Caledon to Riviersonderend. From Caltex Travel 7 km & turn left at DR1306. From George – Take N2 to Cape Town – Past Swellendam & turn right at DR1306. LOOK FOR SIGNS!
Distance is relative to your desire to travel. Life’s a journey, enjoy the ride.

★ VENUE INFORMATION ★
FULLY waterproof tented dance-floor, FREE hot showers, serviced flush toilets, MASSIVE bonfires in every camping zone & around the dance-floor, The best mountain spring drinking water, fully sheltered forest camping by your vehicle. And the best yet: BRING & BRAAI. We encourage you to bring portable braais to keep away any winter chills! Dry wood will be sold onsite; no ground fires permitted in campsites.
Is there a moment quite as keen, or memory as bright
As light and fire and music sweet to warm the winter’s night?
We dance ever slower as the leaves fall and spin
And the sound of the Horn is the wailing of the wind;
The Earth is wrapped in stillness and we move in a trance,
but we hold on fast to our faith in the dance.

♥ OUR PLANET and OUR WASTE ♥
At the Circle of Dreams, we celebrate life; we unite and create a special magic. Only we are responsible for our future on this beautiful planet, it is up to us to create a sustainable future together. Most of us know the struggles that our planet faces due to waste – this is one of the many reasons why we recycle waste from the festival.
With this in mind, we ask that you take special care in the way you handle your waste at Vortex. Always use the bins provided, and keep the camping and festival areas as clean as possible. Remember cigarettes butts are litter too!!!
We want to cherish and love this special venue as it has loved us, so help us make a difference, LEAVE NO TRACE!
♥ GENERAL INFO ♥ NO ID NO ENTRANCE ♥
★ A cash-back service at the bar is available for you to draw cash – a small fee will be charged.
★ No glass is permitted on the venue. Please decant your drinks into plastic bottles before you come.
★ The Info Station – You will find the Info Station behind the main toilet block. Here you can hand in or collect lost property, get extra rubbish bags, ask for advice or information and report any incidents.
★ Special Needs and Camper Vans – For more info and car passes contact Tyree @ email@example.com
★ Donations – Every event Vortex supports a different charity, so please drop off your donations, no matter how big or small, at the InfoStation and help support local charity initiatives! Be the change your wish to see in the world!
★ Safety is our top priority at Vortex and with that in mind, we have started an initiative with the local police at the Riviersonderend Police Department to get them involved with our security team at the festival to help curb crime. Although due care is always taken to keep party-goers safe, unfortunately festivals are easy targets for theft and petty crime, so please leave your valuables at home. For anything you need to have with you, keep it LOCKED IN YOUR CAR! Remember to look out for your friends and camping neighbours!
★ We have partnered up with PsyCare for our events. It is a Volunteer based Psychedelic Support and Harm Reduction Initiative serving the Trance community. We do not advocate the taking of substances but know that substances are taken in the festival environment. Often people are out of their depth and need assistance. The members of this group volunteer to help in a safe and secure manner. This is basically a Psychedelic First Aid Service…
★ We are also partnering up with the SADD – South Africans Against Drunk Driving for our events. We have lost to me comrades in life because of alcohol and drunk driving. Please party responsibly and don’t drive to or from the festival drunk! The venue is still open till the day after the festival and the extra night camping is at no extra cost. Please make sure you take the time to rest and sober up before returning home after the festival. It is not only your life at stake but your friends and other people on the roads as well. Don’t gamble with human life, it is far too precious to throw away for a festival!

Is the core of energy found within ourselves when we let go of all or fears. We have a loss of interest in judging ourselves and those around us. We tend to think and act spontaneously, enjoying each moment as we appreciate everything and smile through the eyes, from the heart.
We all long for love, understanding and acceptance. We can only truly give and receive love once we have gained acceptance and peace within ourselves. Our actions of love towards others all stem from the love we have for ourselves.
Is what happens when a group of people, who have peace, experience their love for themselves and each other, creating a oneness within the group.
The attitude you reach because of Peace, Love and Unity. This allows an environment of freedom of choice. You allow yourself the freedom to be yourself as you allow others the freedom and space to be themselves.
