Not really an orgy ...mostly just both genders (male and female) drinking and dancing a lot and having a lot of fun. Which is opposite of my impression of reading most other websites, that most Sri Lankan women stay home, and it's generally just guys who go out drinking and out late at night, etc. But, I don't know about that.
That being said....there was ONE photo, of several Indian looking woman with two western (looked like european) guys...and the guys were naked, and the girls were half naked...looked like they went for a swim - in the nude. But, later read that those photos were from Bahrain or United Arab Emerates of somewhere like that. That they might not have been real at all, and definitely not at the Hikka Fest.
Anyhow, even in the West, most parties are predominately guys, and there are many 'ladies nights' and everything else trying to encourage women to drink too. But usually mostly guys. The Hikka Fest photos looked like it was 50% guys, 50% girls, and everyone was drunk and dancing.
(By the way, it's not my incentive to visit Sri Lanka! I wanted to go to see the cultural stuff of Kandy, and then the more I researched, the more I read about beaches, and than later read about the Hikka Fest - so it was an afterthought curiousity, not a motivation for going! Just want to say that 'for the record'!)
