Yes, it would be ideal to make this a true no-money gathering, but we do need to cover huge costs in cash, so the Ticket price is in Rands. Once within the festival though, it’s a no-money event. Gifting, sharing, bartering or using the Talent Exchange is where it’s at.
- Tickets are available on Quicket online. They are a little higher than last year as our costs for the venue have increased substantially.
- Tickets are also available directly for cash or direct Eft.

- This is not an open, public event. Tickets will be limited
- The price is the same whether you come for 8 days or 1 day. This is to encourage full participation in the community experience.

This is essentially a self-catering Festival, but there are prepaid meal vouchers for R50 for ready made delicious vegan meals from the Conscious Kitchen. At the gate you will receive vouchers for the number of meals you have bought and these can be redeemed at the Kitchen for meals that will be available at lunchtime and dinnertime.
You will need to decide beforehand how many prepaid meals you wish to have during the Festival and pay for them on Quicket, or cash beforehand. At the fest, put your name down each day for the number of meals you will want. No meal vouchers will be sold for cash at the festival – please remember no money whatsoever should change hands. So come prepared.
Anyone wishing to help in the kitchen for morning or afternoon shifts can work for a free meal and a lively lesson in healthy ethical eating from Caron and Mark – vegan caterers extraordinaire!
A note about trading in Talents
- You don’t have to trade in Talents if you don’t want to, but you need to join the exchange to get into the Festival.
- You are welcome to gift, for the joy of giving, or swop. But certain workshops or activities will be asking for Talents to attend.
- If you do use your number to buy things then you MUST commit to balancing your account by giving back to your community either at the festival or at home by offering your services or selling something for talents.
- We are trusting that your will honour and not abuse the system.
- Ideally, think of a way you can provide a service or have something useful to sell at the festival so you can earn talents to spend at the fest or to balance your account.
- You can also start using the Talent Exchange right away and begin earning talents immediately (selling something useful or offering your skills) you don’t have to wait for the festival. There is a Monthly Talent market in Claremont Cape Town and the next one is on the 10th December.
- The organisers and land-owners take no responsibility for any loss, injury, death or damage of any kind, whatsoever, whether deemed negligent or not. Everyone is expected to be attending this Festival as a sovereign individual, fully responsible for themselves, their children, and their belongings, understanding the inherent risks in attending such a festival, and deciding to take the risk and the consequences, without blaming or seeking compensation from anyone else.
- Tickets are sold on the understanding that there are no refunds if you cannot attend. You are welcome to give it or sell it to a friend if you inform us, and send us their name and CES number.
Check out The LEARNING MANual for details on what to bring.
- If you bring your dog you need to be 100% responsible for it. It would be nice if you have a spade to hand and to bury any dog poo on the paths, , even if it was not your dog. 🙂
- If your dog is a barker, a biter, a fighter, or a food stealer, be able to stop them or we may have to ask you to take them home.
