What a weekend, holy shit. Not sure where to start, so i may as well start somewhere. It makes us proud to end the #WITCHFEST story with the amazing 2017 Festival edition in Johannesburg & Cape Town, the bands, the fans and atmosphere were electric. Thank you to every single person who came out to Witchfest 2017 and every other Witchfest over the last 14 years for that matter.
Please note the Johannesburg festival has moved to the old BASSLINE venue, now called “The Groove Live” located at the Old Bassline building
– ALL tickets are still valid and you do not need to exchange them.
We tried to use a new venue when the original Bassline closed, however the moving process has not been easy or smooth for us. There were too many additional and hidden cost associated with moving forward as an outdoor event. While we may be a big festival by metal standards, we are nothing compared to rock and mainstream events. Our crowd is limited and being a 100% self funded event, it got to the point where we would have to sacrifice show quality in order to just to keep it an outdoor event.
