Still fairly new on the block, Transylvania made quiet the impression. The duration of the party was only 2 days and 1 night and took place at Mareson Plaas Malmesbury. Not sure what to expect, I arrived there early and my friends and I were of the first few people who had arrived.
Firstly, This venue is one of my favourite venues. Personally, you didn’t have to walk crazy long walks to get to your tent and to go back to the dance floor. Toilets were clean and so were the showers, for such a small gathering you just didn’t expect it. I know most people enjoy the long walks but I’m speaking about my own experience and this is not meant to upset anyone.
One thing that I’m sure we(those who attended) can agree on is that Transylvania taught us how important sunscreen is at a party. Got some serious sunburn but it was worth it. However, the wind was strong at a certain point and broke my tent while I was asleep inside of it. I was just laying inside and felt everything collapse on me, luckily it wasn’t nothing serious but now I have to get a new tent.

The International act/ headliner for the event was on Mesquita from Entourage from Conteudo Artistico Brazil, who inspired our minds with some minimal magic.
A local legend that stood out for me at Transylvania DJ D-rANg3D (Equal Records/ Dirtybox). He played a late afternoon set and I don’t usually go in front of the stage but If a certain Dj’s set is good at the time, I will go in front for a while.
