We House Sundays 2-Day Outdoor Festival Kicks Off Summer
There are 20 local and three international DJs on the line-up
Dance music faithfuls and lovers of good music, vibes and food, now have a two-day outdoor gathering to indulge their love of house music. That's because tickets for the We House Sunday Festival, on from 14–16 December, 2019 in Cloof Wine Estate, are now on sale.
ALL CULTURES, MUSIC, ARTISTS
WHS will be hosting their 5th outdoor festival, a welcomed extension of the monthly gatherings that celebrate the true essence of House music and bring together diverse cultures, connecting artists, music lovers and dancers from around the globe.
ALL AGES, ALL STYLES AND JUST DANCE
The idea for the festival came about as a natural progression of the Sunday events, says co-founder David Dix. “There are many festivals here in Cape Town during the summer but none really catering to our style of music. We’re wanting to expand our Sunday events to new experiences and explore new ideas.”
ONE BIG NATION OF MUSIC LOVERS
Everyone who attends the monthly WHS agrees that it feels like one big family of love and unity.
The love, the music, the people, the energy, this makes the place one giant nation of House heads and I feel right at home” says a regular attendee of WHS.
“It’s about the people, the music, and dancing together as one. The feeling on the dancefloor is indescribable” says another
If these are the sentiments from the one-day events of this Cape Town music institution, imagine what it’s like at an entire two days of House bliss at one of the prettiest venues in the Western Cape; Cloof Wine Estate.

The comfort camping option still offers the essence of the camping experience, but without the schlep of setting it up yourself. You get a ready-pitched vinyl tent with two single mattresses. This option includes priority parking, toilets and showers.
NB: Bedding and pillows are not included in both options.
