Win tickets to the Plus 1 Festival!


The ultimate Valentine’s Day weekend will be presented for the very first time with the all new Plus 1 Festival that will be taking place from 17 to 19 February 2017 at the recently refurbished La Paris Estate in Franschhoek with its spectacular views and rolling green laws.

This “festival of love” can be attended for the entire weekend or just for one of the three days, with a fantasy themed “Happily Ever After Party” presented like never before. The theme is inspired by the idea of marriage and how a couple who make these vows to one another chooses to be with the one that stole their heart “till death do us part” for a lifetime of happiness. Therefore, the ultimate fairytale.

Those attending can expect live performances from top local acts like GoodLuck, Euphonik, Mi Casa and The Kiffness, and for the very first time in South Africa, DJ Lovebirds from Berlin will be performing to play a special set.

As the Plus 1 Festival will be celebrated as a marriage between contemporary Art and her groom, sexy Music, over twenty of South African original artworks will also be displayed in the winery, turned into a gallery for the weekend. Furthermore, another five talented artists created five large art installations that will be placed across the picturesque estate as a symbol of love. Examples of this will include a “Steam Punk Bride” installation at the dam, as well as an almost six meter tall Eifel Tower.

Says Greg Lipton, Plus 1 Festival Director: “This all new festival invites discerning party goers from all over SA and the world to come to one of the most beautiful settings on earth in order to get lost in this enchanted playground – effectively, when Art marries Music, everyone over 21 is invited!

He adds that as Art and Music are stylish and fashion forward, those that attend should plan their outfits wisely. “Fantasy Friday is the Stag and Hen parties, so prepare for all kinds of sexy. Saturday will be the big Celebration, while Sunday is Funday to picnic and chillax,” Lipton says.

Costumes for Fantasy Friday should be a sexy expression of self, while outfits for the marriage on Saturday can be inspired by a variety of cultures and how they celebrate weddings. For Funday (on Sunday), the more outrageous, louder, artistic and original, the better.

Lipton concludes: “This is going to be the ultimate happily ever after event ever. Picture a mixture of romance and spectacle to the max as only a Disney film directed by Quentin Tarantino would be. That is only a hint of what to expect.”
