You are invited
Aftermath is a participant-created event run by volunteers. It won't happen without you. We need your participation! Here's where you find out all about all the different ways to bring *you* to Aftermath.
Die Departement van Publieke Werke (department of public works) is all about the dirty work. From erecting massive structures, digging trenches, demarcating danger zones to scrubbing toilets and carefully curating fairy light placement, DPW does it all. So if you like being hands-on and appreciate all the love that goes into manual labour, DPW is for you.
Leave No Trash is dedicated to making sure our event is 100% zero waste. This is so important to us, that LNT has it's own dedicated page. Please read more here
GATE CAMP (Die Portaal)
Greeters: Are you a reeally good Hype person? The initiator of your friends going out for that "one" drink? The greeters are the very first thing any one joining Aftermath see. We have to bring the "gees." Like really hard. You have to greet them so hard that the rest of the weekend seems kind of like a let down ( it obviously won't, but that's the vibe that we bounce.)
A much praised feature of the Aftermath is growing to not only give you a place to prepare your meals, but also to exercise your community muscles. Let's cook together, laugh together, give together and talk together in our own town hall, where all are always welcome. This year, the kitchen will be located in the venue known as the Melkweg. It will be DIY, self service.
THE BAT COUNTRY MOTEL
Brought to you by the Rust 'n Dust team, with a new, fresh vibe.
Calling all musos, poets, talkers and anyone who feels super welcome on a stage!
Come and strut your stuff at the renowned Rokpondok; the best pop-up live music & performance venue West of the Sun & open for only 1 weekend a year! If you'd like to start a jam or book a slot, mail rokpondok@notaftermath.
SHEBEEN: All your booze. Bring it. Drink it.
Set up a THEME or OPEN CAMP!
A Theme Camp is open and accessible to all participants who will delight in whatever you are offering – be it a chilled spot with a library and a cuppa; an inspiring space to set free the artist in you; a dance floor with some groovy tunes to bop to; a pot of something delicious to share; or a hug and a tequila!
An Open Camp does not necessarily have a theme or specific gifting, but welcomes participants in for a visit or a chat. We are introducing Open Camps as a means for our small, tight-knit community to have an opportunity to get to know each other even better.
Whatever it is, this is your opportunity to SHINE – make your camp colourful, welcoming, comfy – and remember great signage and good lighting at night goes a looong way. Keep in mind, the weather can swing from super hot, to rainy to windy and make allowances.
