We're super excited to bring you The Fifth Element, as we take over the club with the finest tuned , indoor FUNKTION ONE sound system on the continent!
Reset, formerly known as ERA, will be providing it's unrivalled facilities for GOLDSWINDLER to put on what will be a FULL POWER GIG with a LINEUP that, in our opinion, will be unrivalled this year!


It is GOLDSWINDLER's 12th show and will be the 7th since moving from Brighton, UK to Cape Town, South Africa. True to our mission, we always select the best possible venues and being hosted by the futuristic Reset when we serve up our journey through sound will be something to behold.

Luc Basson’s iconic Sci-Fi film centres on a concept where the only hope for mankind is the Fifth Element, which comes to Earth every five thousand years along with four other elements: fire, water, earth and air.
The film celebrates its 21st birthday in 2018, which matches 21 years since a Global Electronic Music legend returns to Cape Town’s shores as our headline act alongside local star artists, for this limited numbers event, where we are taking over a state of the art club in the City Centre!

John 00 Fleming “J00F” is an artist who has achieved international success in a career spanning over 30 years without dishonoring his musical essence or fans. With over 10 million album sales and 30 produced mix compilations, John’s a proven musical pioneer whose essence lies in what his fans call, ‘the J00F sound' and is followed by Astrix, Ace Ventura, Liquid Soul, G.M.S, Eric Prydz, Christopher Lawrence, Jerome Isma-Ae to mention just a few.

HE'S FLYING IN FOR A ONE NIGHT ONLY EXTENDED  SET TO SHOWCASE HIS LATEST ALBUM J00F Editions Volume 4, which hit number 1 on beatport for all genres, FOR YOU!

Supporting J00F will be 6 incredible local artists:

We are honoured to add another talented lady to our portfolio of rocking artists, as h.a.n.e.l joins the GOLDSWINDLER fold to open The Fifth Element

From the very inception of Goldswindler, starting with GOLDRUSH and through every event since then, the sexy force that is Monique, has had the dancefloor rocking with her distinctive deep and tech house sets that are famous on the Cape Town clubbing scene.

Jonathan Joseph plays his debut GOLDSWINDLER event. We had been quietly studying his talents, knowing that Jono makes a massive impact to the type of audience that GOLDSWINDLER draws and approached him to grace the decks, so when he agreed we were super chuffed to have him on board!

He's a Producer and DJ, and when he closed our last gig with is new project, Shadow Chronicles, we were blown away by the fact that people just would not leave the dance-floor! How pleased are we that PROTOCULTURE is joing this power line-up to unleash even newer material at The Fifth Element!?

Dave Irish - known for his eclectic taste in uplifting and delicate Techno, Dave Irish will be serving a delicious main course to revelers on our Tech Floor, alongside artists such as DJ Miss Creamer. Dave Irish played at the exclusive Summer Camp Festival last year, to lauded praise and we are honoured to have him work magic on the best sound system in Africa.

Our secret weapon, WILL KILL, will join the Tech Floor Artist Line-Up on the 5th May to bring you a GOLDSWINDLER selecta set which includes a blend of Nu Disco, House & Electronica. Will-Kill's sets are dirty, uplifting and fun.

Our generous sponsors have come on board to fit the theme and are as follows:

Ticket holders 30-35 will each win a MULTIPASS membership to the next 3 GOLDSWINDLER parties, courtesy of Aquelle natural spring water.

The 100th ticket holder will win a Terrarium Garden courtesy of Angels & Earth - these are incredibly beautiful works of art and cost in the thousands -

The 200th ticket holder will win a Paragliding Jump off of Signal Hill in tandem with John 00 Fleming on the day of the gig, courtesy of Icarus Paragliding - not only is a free jump such a cool treat but to pair up and connect with such a legend before he smashes it at the gig, is truly special!

Accommodation at our regular artist digs, the lovely Bluegum Hill in Green Point, and meals for John 00 Fleming are being sponsored care of Charka.

As has been the case for our last 3 events, Red Bull Music continues to back our underground parties to ensure that we stick with our reputation for having selected a great venue, with a Next Generation Sound System, great DJ lineup and of course, YOU AMAZING PEOPLE!

Be sure not to miss this one - reserve your place this year! And remember, you need to dress the part, for The Fifth Element!

Tickets will not be sold at the door and there is a limted capacity - once the allocated number of tickets are sold, that's it!

Brace yourselves! 

 We do Parties. Really Good Ones.

Stay tuned. Save the date. Save your strength.
