A trip to Terror Island

First we were treated to some pretty amazing hologramic live visuals and electro sounds courtesy of Etienne De Crecy, then we rocked out in an abandoned cement factory in Nyanga with Two Door Cinema Club, this year act three of the #5GumExperience found us bound for a trip to Terror Island.
Dressed in our most scary Halloween best and surrounded by beasties of many terrible kinds we ventured to the Parade of Grandness and then on to the secret location. 5Gum pride themselves on original and unexpected venues and this year was no exception. Joburg party-goers were treated to the Old Joburg Train Station in Newtown on Friday, while keeping on theme Capetonians found themselves throwing shapes at the Cape Town Train Station on Saturday.


Blood on the speakers

An interesting venue indeed, a suspense-building passage with flickering red and blue lights welcomed us into the main cavernous dance area with a DJ booth of altar-like proportions. While bars and food stalls were set up on the rooftop under the still and almost-full moon night. The mood was electric; the party-goers savage, the smell of incense and urine thick in the air. This was a blood-on-the-speakers type of party if I ever saw one.

Local support artists: Funafuji, Christian Tiger School, White Nite, Youngsta and Sibot delivered tasty teaser auditory snacks to the sonically greedy mass of monsters and ghouls. While international headliners A-Track and Hudson Mohawke reeled the crowds in with a main course of harsh-and-heavy beats. Even pretty Halloween princesses and cuddly teddy bears were feeling gangsta, courtesy of those two beat-juggling scratchers.

Stumbling home between drunken toilet-paper-mummies and dishevelled naughty nurses, we could only eagerly await the next #5GumExperience. Awhoooo!
