Wanderbay 2023 - Logo 2 black cropped



As we embark on our third adventure together, Wanderbay invites us on a captivating journey that transcends the ebb and flow of life.

Join the annual gathering as we return to the dance floor, delighting in the carefully curated sonic soundscape that resonates through the crowd. On New Year’s Eve, rhythms sourced from far and wide will coalesce into celebration as another chapter draws to a close, and we welcome the dawn of a new year. Wanderers travel from far and wide to the effervescent shorelines of Plettenberg Bay to celebrate, and this year we will once again meet under the dazzling lights.

Heed the call and let the tides draw you into a New Year’s revelry like no other. 

& Presence

"Be Here Now" - Ram Dass.

There is nothing more important than being present. Just as a mobile phone will never be able to capture the true beauty of a South African sunset, so too can no video or photo capture the essence of Wanderbay NYE.

We understand it’s nearly impossible to escape carrying a device with you, but if you would like to have the best experience – use it as little as possible.

Of course, you can take pictures of your experiences for private use, but we aspire to see people with their arms up in the air and their phones safely tucked away. We could all do with swapping thousands of bad photos and boring videos to be completely present in our experience together. 

Film photography is a much-loved alternative to freezeframe a memory, but memories are best kept in your heart!
