Flamjangled Tea Party

Flamjangled Tea Party

Set on the Contermanskloof Wine Farm, only 30 minutes from Cape Town, the Flamjangled Tea Party in Durbanville is a unique, colourful weekend long party and celebration of music. With its ‘Mad Hatter’s Tea Party’ theme, festivalgoers need little encouragement to dress up in psychedelic costumes, embracing the opportunity to dust off their zaniest outfits. A magical array of props and festival décor set the scene for one of Cape Town’s most beloved festivals, which attracts a more folksy and artistic crowd than most.

This year’s party promises to deliver, with a stellar line-up of great bands and artists performing on Saturday and Sunday, with performances by the Ruby Robins, Mzfitz, The Jack Mantis Band, Mr. Cat and The Jackal, Peachy Keen, Guy Buttery and Hot Water, amongst others, which are sure to delight!

Camping at Contermanskloof Wine Farm is an absolute pleasure owing to the gorgeous scenery, grass fields for camping, parking space and dam for swimming in. The food area positively groans with delicious food offerings, including vegetarian fare and a gypsy tea caravan, serving delicious Lady Bonin tea. The caravan and Turkish style chill area is sure to be a popular spot at the tea party!

Besides for non-stop musical entertainment, the organizers of the festival also have many more magical things up their sleeves, including dazzling performers, an outdoor theatre, a pyjama party, the ‘Miniscule of Sound’ and black and white movies. The Flamjangled website is wonderfully informative, including advice on what to pack (with an emphasis on sunblock), what to wear, how to behave and how to dance! Obscure talents seem to be in great demand at the festival, with a talent competition taking place over the course of the weekend. So it’s time to whip out those curious talents you’ve kept hidden for most of your adult life and show them off at the tea party.

Tickets to The Flamjangled Tea Party cost R290 for the entire weekend, if you buy your tickets beforehand at select outlets and cost R150 for Sunday only.
