It’s unfortunate to be the bearer of bad news on this beautiful Friday afternoon, but hey, if you don’t hear it first on ZAlebs where will you hear it from?
A few moments ago the One-Eyed Jack camp informed us that the Joburg WE ARE ONE Colour Festival, originally scheduled for 23 November 2013, will move to the new date of 22 March 2014 so that award-winning event organiser, Seed Experiences, can deliver festival-goers the best colour festival experience in the country.
“We recognise that there have been a lot of copycat colour festivals across South Africa this year, with very little to differentiate one from the other,” says Seed Experiences managing director, Brian Little. “To reaffirm WE ARE ONE as the original colour festival in the country, maintain our credibility as top event organisers, and deliver even better colour festivals, we have taken the proactive decision to move the Joburg event to March 2014.”
Brian adds that the move will mean that the Joburg event can join Cape Town on 21 March 2014 as part of an annual WE ARE ONE Series.
Being like everyone else is not the WE ARE ONE vibe. Our fans expect only the best from South Africa’s original colour festival, so we plan to give it to them.
The date change means Seed Experiences will be maximising and distinguishing the WE ARE ONE experience, in contrast to all other colour festivals. Seed Experiences will deliver a production that is bigger and better by securing a top international and local line-up, ensuring venue exclusivity, superior colour powder quality and overall entertainment.
All existing tickets for the Joburg event will automatically be changed to the new March 2014 date. All fans who hold onto their tickets for the new date will be offered one free bag of colour powder, which can be collected from the powder and merchandise tents on the day, using a voucher issued by Webtickets.
If a refund is required, ticket holders can email [email protected] and include their reference numbers. For all EFT/ cash deposit payments, please include your bank details. All refund requests must be sent before 23 November 2013.
