Holi ONE Festival – Competition


Inspired by the original Holi Festival in India, Colour Festivals have travelled around the world to Germany, the USA and Singapore – and now HOLI ONE launches in South Africa for the first time!

If you’re still not quite sure what everyone is going on about – i’ve seen a couple of people on Facebook a little confused. Check the video out below:

CAPE TOWN kicks off the HOLI ONE tour on Sat 2 March, it then moves on to JHB on 6 April, Durban – your date is still to be confirmed! After the South African leg of the journey – these guys follow the Sun and head off to: Berlin, Munich, Bremen, Dusseldorf, Leipzig, Lubeck, and Munster… After that, who knows. They’ve already taken the festival to Ibiza, and Barcelona before!


Holi is a spring festival celebrated by Hindus as a festival of colours. It is primarily observed in India and Nepal but also in Bangladesh and Pakistan. It is also known as Phagwah and Festival of Colours.


The powder used at the HOLI ONE Colour Festival is completely safe, non-toxic, water soluble and environmentally friendly and is made from corn flour and food colouring. Only certified 100% natural HOLI ONE powder may be used at the festival. No powder bought outside the festival can be permitted. However, people with allergies, asthma or contact lens wearers should use mouth and/or eye protection.

Personal Advice:

– Wear sunglasses (the bigger the better)

– Keep a handy pack of baby wipes on your person

– Buy a cheap white t-shirt at Pep or wherever


You can win yourself 2 tickets to the Holi ONE Festival in Cape Town – 2 March 2013! All you have to do is make sure you follow @HOLIONESA and decide which colour you are! Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, or Pink.
