The first summer gathering or 2008 is upon the ‘Fu-Cha’ and what better way to give thanks to all who have contributed to the energy these festivals have created. ‘The Fu-Cha Gathering Summer Stomp’ will turn the beautiful Hornbill Ravine into a magical playground of psychedelic pleasure allowing all who make the trip to escape into a reality unknown to others… come join us for another anticipated outdoor adventure…

Main act:

..::Broken Toy::..

Broken Toy is James Copeland , a 27 year old from Cape Town, South Africa. He has produced psytrance with a unique, twisted funk style and a wide variety of moods for the dancefloor since 2001. From full-on to electro-funk, from deep and dreamy to tribal techno. Previous musical experiences include being a guitarist and bass player in a metal band and producing as a member of the more dark/full-on project ” Damage “.
Since 2004 he was taken up as an Alchemy records artist and has gigged all over the world - Brazil, India, Russia, The UK, Canada, South Africa, Israel, Mexico, France, Spain, Austria, Italy, Greece, Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden, Germany, Portugal, Japan and Australia. His self-titled debut album was released in May 2005 and he has just released his 2nd album, ” The Low , Down, Dirty sound of …” .
He was one of the pioneers of the Cape Town psytrance scene, producing alongside other artists from South Africa like Shift, Artifakt, Protoculture and Phyx. Since those early days a lot has changed, but the idea is still the same - Keep the dancefloor rocking and the party-people entertained. So expect the Broken Toy to keep bringing the noise to all the girls and boys!

..::Fu-Cha Tips::..

Anyone who has been to a festival of this nature before will tell you that it’s essential to have your own space of accommodation. A tent shared amongst friends is perfect to have as a base to experience everything this festival has to offer. Your base will allow you to step out of the fun for a rest whenever you like. No need to be traveling back home at some silly hour.
(Please see camping and chalet accommodation under ticket info.)

Bring a warm jacket and at least one change of clothes to ensure your comfort.

Swimming gear, towels and sun block are essential.

A torch is always a handy item if you are camping.
