JOBURG WE ARE ONE COLOUR FESTIVAL

6th April 2013 

Emmarentia Dam & Botanical Garden was host to one of South Africa’s most anticipated, well thought of events of the Year. With an outstanding attendance of

15 000 people from every region of the country and some from different parts of the World.

WE ARE ONE COLOUR FESTIVAL brought eager fans from as far as Australia to our shores to come party together as one.  With unity, peace and love the expressions shown on the faces of each individual you couldn’t ask for more.

Countdown    
Complete Powder Cover
It still amazes me as to how AWESOME the view was as soon as the
powders had been launched into the air and how everyone
who arrived in white clothing, was actually happy when leaving after
the event all covered in multitudes of colour from head to toe.
Head to toe in Colour Powder    Loving the colour
The DJ line up was excellently chosen and not to mention the Stage
and Sound were in perfect proportions. The music was flowing keeping everyone
dancing, singing and moving their feet to the great Beats  
on a Beautiful Hot and Sunny Day from 11am – 8pm. Cant wait for next years event.
Stage and Sound 
Gorgeous
