Top Parties Happening in SA This Summer Holiday


Not quite sure what to do with yourself now that you’ve got *almost* all the time in the world?

Fear not because we know exactly what you’re into – and quite frankly, it’s the festive season which means; parties every other day!

Submerged Sundays

Described as once ‘were mild-mannered students by day that blew the roof off house parties by night’, Dominic Peters and David Poole who form Golfish, are one of the biggest duos in the EDM scene. Get a chance to see them live at Shimmy Beach Club, on December 23.

‘Submerged offers more than just perfectly curated lineups and feel-good sounds. With festival-style food, world-class production and Shimmy Beach Club’s unbeatable ocean views added to the occasion, these events are designed to enhance and excite all the senses.’ Lit.

Love and Light Festival: Full Moon

This festival is a favorite for all the earthy, and indigo children. And if that’s you, this’ll be home on the 22 – 23 December at Ostrich Farm. Coincidentally, their 8th edition falls on a full moon and is known as the Strawberry Moon, a time that signified the harvest of wild berries in the summertime. ‘Wild berries in the summertime’ is officially our middle name. Come one, come all as Captain Hook, Ghost Rider, Not (and more) take us on a trance-like musical journey!
