Wavescape Festival 2016

A bumper lineup of events and activities awaits Cape Town between 21 November and 11 December.

The Wavescape Festival was born from a strong love for surfing and ocean culture, and the simple idea of sharing these feelings with an audience. Eleven years later, they present a range of film, music and art events in South Africa, with the aim of having fun, building community and promoting conservation.

The film festival component comprises 27 surfing and ocean films from around the world screened in two indoor locations, and our outdoor flagship, Clifton 4th Beach. Slide Night presents 10 salty tales by 10 ocean gurus. Fish Fry hosts a surf culture party and celebrity fish braai. 

Other elements include the Wavescape Beach Reach (fun, interactive day for kids to learn about beach safety and ocean conservation), and a partnership with the Sea-Change Children’s night at the Two Oceans Aquarium. We’re also giving away surfboards, wet-suits and gear in raffles and the #WavescapePhoto2016
