Colour Festival Durban 2013 – Photos

Durban’s first colour festival took place on Saturday 6 April 2013… I arrived a little late, and completely underestimated the traffic coming in towards Gateway. Arriving just before the scheduled first Colour Throw, I scrambled to get my camera ‘dustproofed’, a few plastic bags, some insulation tape and a bit of duct tape, that was as good as it was going to get.

I managed to get through to the main area just as the throw happened, but wasn’t quite ready to get the shots. None the less this wasn’t a big deal. There was a colour throw planned every hour on the hour and there was plenty powder getting given out to the masses, definitely no shortage there.

Music wise, I must admit, its not my typical scene, I’m not particularly fond of the general stereotypical people that go to these events. Thankfully though this was a very mixed crowd, with people from all walks of life, young and old, that came to get covered in colourful powder. The venue was packed, I haven’t attended an event at Wavehouse that had seen so many people in that area, which was an awesome sight.

I must comment, however that people in Durban clearly don’t understand the concept, there was little unison when it came to throwing the powder up all at the same time. It seemed to happen in smaller groups. With the majority of people just throwing it directly at there friends.

The bar areas were inadequate in my opinion, I didn’t even bother trying to get a drink, I think there were about 4 or 5 separate bar areas available and they were all overflowing with the 6000+ colour festival attendees.
Lets not forget the bathrooms, I don’t know if it was from the powder itself, or the packets the powder came in, but all the basins were blocked, and overflowing, spilling a brown liquid all over the place. The cleaning staff were clearing the area throughout the event, but not being very considerate, splashing this dirty water all over any unsuspecting person that walked into the restroom.

All in all the event was as expected, a lot of colourful mess, with some awesome DJ’s that kept the crowd moving the duration of the event. The general feeling seemed as if the majority enjoyed the event and enjoyed getting colourful.

This non–religious event set on African soil makes it a truly amazing melting pot of cultures. Featuring a line-up of broad of cross-over artists, the event promises to cater to multiple tastes and get the whole city dancing in a bright display of colour.
