South African promoters Make-Believe are currently pushing some of those most quirky, forward-thinking parties to be found anywhere in the world. An exaggeration? Not at all. In conjunction with the Train Lodge, an event space in which the dance-floor is situated on a train platform, between two actual trains and a swimming pool, Make-Believe have started Face The Music, a series of parties that aim to bring top-quality electronic artists to some of the most interesting and avant-garde venues in South Africa. Hoping to boost what are increasingly burgeoning house and techno scenes in Cape Town and Durban, Make-Believe are riding the wave of a significant nationwide sonic and cultural shift.
Make-Believe Boat Party
On November 3rd Make-Believe presents Face The Music will be inviting none other than US techno favourite Bruno Pronsato to headline the extended 14 hour festivity. Showcasing his much-lauded live show, Bruno will be bringing his unique blend of detailed, sophisticated but ultimately groovy electronic music to the Cape Town public. Those that have witnessed the Seattleite in action will know that few in the scene put as much effort and enthusiasm into their performance as Bruno does, never failing to forge a palpable bond between himself and the dance-floor. The occasions in which great djs and mindblowing venues are brought together are few and far between; here is one that cannot, and should not, be overlooked.
**Competition** Make-Believe have very kindly offered MEOKO the chance to give away 2 tickets to the event. All you have to do is tell us which of the below does NOT hail originally from Seattle:
