For The Record: Wolfkop Weekender Competition

We are pleased to announce that we have 2x weekend passes to give away to ONE lucky person for this spectacular weekend away.

Herewith a bit more detail on the event.


Wolfkop Weekender : Lilo River Flow 2015

Wolfkop Weekender started as an intimate gathering and music event, and managed to remain a best-kept secret; hidden by the valley itself and the locals of Citrusdal for close-on five years. In January 2014, this jewel of a venue and its penchant for a well-seasoned celebration and rolling bassline were revealed to a new group of unassuming revelers, who’d come to the valley under the guise of experiencing, ‘a different kind of weekend away’.

Lilo River Flow took place over a weekend bearing the brilliant brunt of the mid-Summer heat; making for water-based days, that saw 100 or so floatation devices take to the river and indulge the senses in a crystal-clear, back-to-nature experience. A quality and understated soundtrack floated on a breath of wind by day, took you into a cool evening doused with the adventurous energy of a campout and moved you deep into the night.

Wolfkop Weekender : Lilo River Flow returns with a 48 hour frolic on the banks and in the refreshing current of the Olifant’s Rivier in the Citrusdal Valley. Reset, recharge and put an incredible new year into motion from the 23rd – 25th January at the lush Wolfkop Nature Reserve venue in Citrusdal.

Join us for an experience that is part weekend-away, part music festival and all kinds of incredible. Wolfkop presents a unique atmosphere, organic vibe and deep beats of a different kind: Eclectic and downtempo dubs will ease you by day and live throbbing electronica will tease you by night. Bring your floatila devices and your favourite friends, this weekender is jam-packed and brimming with good times.

Wolfkop Weekender is an official satellite event of the Cape Town Electronic Music Festival (CTEMF) and we’re excited to announce this affiliation as we welcome our first international guests to our boutique music stage.

HEADLINERS: Tama Sumo & Lakuti (Berlin) and Christain Tiger School (Cape Town)
A very special treat to grace the stage of Wolfkop; Tama Sumo & Lakuti are pivotal members of the Berlin electronic music scene and influencers across the world, it would be hard to imagine two more suitable debutants for our intercontinental guest list.

TAMA SUMO is a true legend amongst the Berlin music making community. She began her professional career as a resident DJ at Tresor in the mid nineties and has never looked back. A history with the OstGut collective that pre-dates Berghain /Panorama Bar has ensured a residency in the hallowed halls of the legendary institution since the day it opened it’s doors. Her first release in 2008 was co-produced with Prosumer and debuted in the top 50 of German Groove Magazine.

LAKUTI is a South African by birth, and one of our most influential exports. After 10 years running Sud Electronic with another local hero Portable, she moved on to open the now legendary Uzuri Records, an operation which has expanded to into a booking agency that includes such luminaries as Fred P and Levon Vincent. A resident of Panorama Bar, she is regarded as a sublime selector, one only needs to spend an hour with her in the Boiler Room to realise the scope of her talent.

And one of the most exciting live acts to come out of Cape Town; CHRISTIAN TIGER SCHOOL are the teaming of Luc and Sebastian. The young duo have in a very short time made an indelible impact on the SA electronic music scene. Their live set and sonic direction is a show not to be missed.

Following the release of their debut album Third Floor on bombadaa the pairhave taken their live show across the world and supported acts like Little Dragon and Hudson Mohawke. They end 2014 on a high note after a mini tour of NYC and a slot at Sonar Music Festival in Cape Town. The end of the year also sees the release of Chrome Tapes, their sophomore release, which takes a new sonic direction. While the hip-hop foundation remains, house and techno have been integrated moving them into the more experimental electronica field.

Both headliners take to the sound stage on Saturday.
