From the team that produces the annual MTN Bushfire Festival, the Standard Bank Luju Food & Lifestyle 2019 will offer the same high class production standards within a completely transformed environment.Luju is a unique and sophisticated African-vintage styled event celebrating the local, the wholesome, the creative, and the delicious.
The Standard Bank Luju Food & Lifestyle Festival, after it’s hugely successful inaugural edition, will return this year from August 2nd -August 3rd 2019. Set on the lavish lawns of the House on Fire Sculpture Garden against a breath-taking backdrop of endless cane fields and rolling hills, this is a not-to-be event missed for any food enthusiasts, culture buffs and travellers.
In an exciting development for this year, the Standard bank Luju Food and Lifestyle 2019 Festival will take place over two days, commencing on the evening of 2nd August. Lulu Premium Lounge ticket holders will be welcomed to a welcome cocktail party at Malandela’s Restaurant with light snacks and drinks accompanied by a DJ on the evening of August 2nd.
Guests will be able to stay on site with Rush Glamping who will provide a state of the art Glamping experience on the Luju Festival grounds that includes en suite hot showers and toilets, providing a home away from home for our local and international guests.
New travel packages will also include charter flights to make getting to this weekend feast of local flavor as quick and easy as possible.
The 2019 edition of the Standard Bank Luju Food and Lifestyle Festival promises to be a sensory experience unlike any other under the theme: A return to the African future. As we return to ourselves, we return to a time when we respected the soil, treading lightly with bare feet. A time when our hands sowed seeds of an abundant harvest, hope and love.
To that end, all elements of the Standard Bank Luju Food and Lifestyle Festival, including food vendors and curators must be ethical and sustainable in their approach to farming and food. The festival will continue to encourage conversations about our consumption habits and our role in conserving nature and the sustainability of our planet through various thematic activations.
