Twilight Festival Announces 6 Headliners

                             Posted: Oct 14 2019

Bringing you its 16th edition, Twilight Festival is back to breathe live back into Joburg’s starving music lovers. This time, you can expect that same old infectious vibe with some of the finest international psy, techno and drum and bass acts around.

You’ll be treated to three day of unstoppable music to keep you on the dancefloor with a smile on your face while making epic memories.

Below, you’ll be introduced to the international playing this year: ShivaTree, Teenage Mutants, Breakage, DJ Cholo, XSI and Stryker.


Shivatree is a psychedelic trance project by Ilan Fleischman from Israel. His style is known for powerful bass lines and massive melodies, with influence drawn from the old school Goa trance day but remaining current with the huge sound of today. Recently he has been performing at every major outdoor festival on the psychedelic trance international circuit.

Teenage Mutants

Teenage Mutants revive as a duo. Welcome to this exciting second chapter after 5 years of Christian holding this musical adventure as a solo project. The most important thing now is that the Mainz based guys are back in the game with more enthusiasm and energy than ever before. Keep that!

As a DJ-team, TM has travelled the entire world: from Paris to Hollywood, Miami to Berlin, and Bangkok to Kuala Lumpur… But the duo will be never tired of gigging all over the planet; new gigs in Asia, USA, South America, etc. We will see them touring non-stop.


With monstrous releases across labels like Critical Recordings, Bass Bin, Digital Soundboy and now his own imprint Index, Breakage continues to push the boundaries with fast-paced clinical cuts and low slung rattling bass lines. Following his latest offering "Liff Up" EP on Index and a sub destroying remix of Culture Shock’s "There for you", Breakage continues his good form dropping a number of sought after releases on the Inperspective label.

To quote Roots Manuva... “Breakage is a man with an ear for deep, deep, sub-sonic frequencies. He goes in low. I’m thinking he’s talking to sea-life. He’s talking to the squid”.

DJ Cholo

Cholo was born in Peru and moved to Israel with his family during his childhood. Around the age of 16, he began exploring the electronic aspects of things and a few years later he began studying sound engineering in LFO & BPM School.

Cholo’s sets vividly correspond to his adventures worldwide, presenting a taste of a wide range of cultures and influences. His adventurous soul led him to places including India, Australia, Peru, to name a few.


XSI is a French Psy-Trance project of 2 members, Bart Bayona aka STRYKER & Jean-Marc Segondy aka BIONIX .

Due to a meeting that was bound to happen in one of the most famous clubs in Paris, The GIBUS, where they were both resident DJs for 2 years, the trance band Xtra Sound Independent was born as an active hitmaker that has become a world-renowned stalwart of the full-on psy trance scene.


Stryker’s music is a solid mix of Psychedelic Trance, Full-on, Electro with a twist of Tech. Bart is one of the most known talents of the French psy-trance scene for over a decade, as one head of the hitmaker project XSI.

In between touring all around the world and producing music for 15 years, Bart’s tastes and personality evolved, and the feeling that it was time to make his own project was evidence. Many emotions bundled together in Stryker, no limitations by codes with the main motivation: make you smile and dance and that’s what has taken him all over the world to become one of the leading artists today.

Twilight starts on the 1st of November and goes all the way into Sunday afternoon on the 3rd of November so that’s your weekend sorted.

Tucked away in the pristine surrounds of Malonjeni Guest Farm, you'll be able to reconnect with nature and find your centre here, while making friends and having the time of your life.
