March and April 2013 saw tens of thousands colour-crazy fans covering Cape Town and Johannesburg in a kaleidoscope of orange, green, pink, blue and yellow at the original We Are One Colour Festivals.
Back then, the We Are One Colour Festival was the first EDM event based on a colour powder festival concept in South Africa and it attracted sell-out crowds. However, it also set in motion a “colour fest” trend. Suffice to say, there have been several Johnny Come Late copycat versions with promoters jumping on the colour bandwagon.
As a result, the public has taken notice of this and questions are being asked online and in social media about why there are so many different colour festivals that seem so similar. As the company responsible for putting on We Are One, the award-winning Seed Experiences, wants to set the record straight.
This is what Brian Little, Managing Director of Seed Experiences has to say:
“We don’t claim to be the first colour festival ever and the concept of a non-religious colour festival is no longer new and many are held around the world. But to be sure We Are One is South Africa’s First Colour Festival of its kind and, as Seed Experiences, we remain committed to throwing successful colour festivals that are about music and people having a great time in the spirit of togetherness.”
Despite other versions of the first We Are One Colour Festival popping up, Seed Experiences is confident that both existing fans and new colour-party revellers will support the country’s first EDM colour festival. “Like all of Seed Experiences events We Are One set the standards in South Africa. People who attend We Are One know they are part of the first festival in the country and they know they can expect a world-class event, the best line-up, and an overall amazing experience. This is clear from our sell-out events in March and April,” adds Brian.
WHEN WILL WE ARE ONE COLOUR FESTIVAL RETURN?
Seed Experiences will be announcing the new venues and dates for the summer We Are OneColour Festivals very soon. The official announcements will be made on the Facebook pages and to media in the coming days.
