Imagine a festival filled with artists, food, wine and music, and EVERYTHING is included in your ticket!? Well, that’s Littlegig!
Littlegig is the world’s only 24-hour, everything-included festival. The third edition will take place on 17-18 February in Stellenbosch. It is a showcase of musicians, DJs, chefs, winemakers, artists, designers, and performers.
Food & Drink
Littlegig is unlike any other festival in that all food and drink are included in the ticket price. Only some of the best alcohol and coffee brands are served throughout the event from a string of pop-up bars (with no queues – yay!) in fantastical locations.
The music experience at Littlegig is not about big headline acts but rather a collection of relevant and diverse musicians and DJs in 6 music areas that open and close as the festival journey progresses. There’s the Forest Day Stage with our favourite live bands in the middle of the food forest, the Night Stage – on a real basketball court – with our headline electronic acts; an Art Car playing the sundowner set on the island and then moving to a secret forest location after midnight. The Festival Fashion Concept Store has a dancefloor and a steady flow of champagne, the Island has DJs playing funk, Latin, soul and sounds from the continent, and the Gin & Whiskey Bar has late night live music.
Our international acts include multi-instrumentalist, carnival-style storyteller Stelth Ulvang (from Billboard No. 1 folk/rock band the Lumineers), Cameroonian-New Zealand singer and beatmaker Estère, Kenyan DJ/producer Blinky Bill.
Other highlights are SAMA-award winning Black Motion, afro-folk sensation Bongeziwe Mabandla and electro-soul songstress Nonku Phiri.
Art & Design
Each area at Littlegig is designed by a top stylist, under the creative lead of Littlegig’s Bielle Bellingham, former Elle Decoration editor. Architect and artist duo Sean and JustineMahoney have designed a 6-meter metallic inflatable artwork for the island, there will be a Deep Sleep tent where festival goers will lie suspended in ‘cocoons’ listening to regenerative brainwave music, and there will be an installation by Rodan Kane Hart on the basketball court. Dance, performance, comedy and magic will all be making their Littlegig debuts.
Fashion, dress-up and creative freedom are the heartbeat of Littlegig. The Concept Store – the only place at the festival where money changes hands – presents vintage and bespoke festival ranges by exciting local designers.
