Colour in the Sun, inspired by the traditional Holi colour festival in India, ventures to Carnival City on December 16.
The event will bring together thousands of colour-crazy revellers for an afternoon of spectacular entertainment, sets by well-known DJs and tons of powder-infused fun.
Confirmed artists and DJs include Dj Zan D, Infinite Boys, Major League Dj’s, Dimplez, Sterra on Percussion, Shorts Da Deejay, and Morgan Beat Box.
Colour in the Sun is a top-class colour festival promoting unity and equality while celebrating youth, togetherness and fun.
This festival derives from an ancient Hindu festival celebrating springtime, love and, of course, colours.
It has recently spread from its origins in India and Nepal to parts of Europe as a non-religious day to reflect equality and togetherness.
Against a festive backdrop of song and dance, participants play, chase and colour each other with bright, dry powders.
All colours consist of corn starch and an aromatic substance.
Aromatic substances include lavender, lavender oil, sage, dill, 2-undecanone, chamomile, rosemary, rosemary oil and acetic acid.
The colours are red, green, pink, orange, blue and yellow.
