Holi One Colour Festival 2015

HOLI ONE – WE ARE ONE South Africa’s First Colour Festival returns to colour Cape Town & Johannesburg!

In April 2013 tens of thousands of colour-crazy revellers covered in a kaleidoscope of green, orange, pink, yellow and blue at the original HOLI ONE – WE ARE ONE Colour Festivals.

HOLI ONE – WE ARE ONE will again cement its status as South Africa’s largest Colour Festival party experience!

To meet demand, HOLI ONE – WE ARE ONE will be bigger and better: capacity for both events has been increased; a great line-up of international and local artists PLUS a new ‘COLOUR DAY & NEON NIGHT’ theme to add to the usual white dress.

If it doesn’t say HOLI ONE – WE ARE ONE, it’s not South Africa’s biggest Colour Festival party experience!
