Packed into three days Theewaterskloof, less than an hour outside of The Mother City, welcomes back the annual pilgrimage and much-loved institution that is SYNERGY LIVE 2014! Friday 28, through Sunday 30 November 2014 is when 11 international headliners, a colossal line-up of SA bands, live acts, comedians and electronic artists descend, delight and dissolve into all things festive. In the midst of its open-air hub of rising stars and seasoned headliners, SYNERGY LIVE 2014 is set to pop, and go down as your best weekend ever! But what exactly separates this life-affirming entertainment extravaganza from everything else out there? Variety, quality and quintessential originality – all of which punters are known to travel far and globally wide to confirm. As with any respected major festival, anywhere on the planet, the Main Stage is what excites the imagination long before the three-day weekend reveal unwinds. SYNERGY LIVE 2014 knows and swears by theirs, if only because it’s not merely a stage, it’s the festival self-proclaimed home made up of an extraordinary audio visual production and showcasing a world-class line up of bands, acts and artists. The big names will blow you away, but look out for future superheroes earning their stripes. It’s a full widescreen HD experience that forms the on-going soundtrack to a spectacular weekend in the sun and between the stars. SYNERGY LIVE 2014’s Main Stage wishes to count as the one playing the right tunes at the right time. All you have to do is turn up! Add the Red Bull Studio Live experience to what’s patently apparent, even before the beats bleed out, is every style of music will get a look and listen in at SYNERGY LIVE 2014. With Red Bull commissioned and conscripted to deliver the finest electronica, made up of drum and bass, dubstep, deep and tech house, blended into a background filled with techno and trance and what’s assured is you’ll be reaching for an ice-cold can between their impressive beats per minute delivery. Watch out for the likes of S.P.Y, Egbert and Secret Cinema, to name a few. Diversity is the guaranteed constant, on tap, at SYNERGY LIVE 2014, and in order to reinforce that ideology the electronic music fraternity will happily acknowledge and support the Sirius Sunday Electronic Music Experience. The nine-hour electronic music party, from the likes of international acts Captain Hook, right through Atmos and Mindwave, each will drop the punchiest bass lines and most hypnotic rhythms turning the world on right now. Add the ERA Beach Club, with mandatory sarongs, cocktails and a collection of deep house and techno, and what’s sure to ensue is a party of epic proportion. Dished up by Cape Town’s CBD of dance, ERA, together with their whole crew and fiery foursome of international cameo acts – Stimming, Ron Costa, Lake People and DJ Anna – ERA Beach Club looks set to be the perfect go-between stages, The Market Place, The Traders Square and your tent or boutique-styled outdoor glamper’s investment in Heartbreak Motel luxury. For less than two bars you and your significant other can bed down, shower up and sleep soundly in a tent already pitched before you arrive. Fresh linen and 24-hour security makes perfect sense if you’re looking for a pampered party solution. Remember though, accommodation and festival tickets are sold separately. And for laughs? Look no further than The Comedy Club, the laughter zone. With its non-stop daily stand-up makes for a welcome respite between sets from some of the biggest names in music today. Between sets explore the various activation areas peppered all around SYNERGY LIVE 2014. There’ll be lounges, bars, promo girls, drinks and competitions to enter and win, that will feed and leave you replete – ready for more high-grade entertainment. Bring a bank card, rather than wads of cash as there’ll be ATMs on site too. The My Music Matrix Team make a welcome return to SYNERGY LIVE 2014 too, bringing with them all the essential oils and ingredients to satisfy your retail therapy wants. From T-shirts to CDs, and everything in-between, you’ll get to wear your memories, quite literally on your sleeve, long after you’ve made the trek home from one of the most beautifully placed man-made entertainment experiences ever.
