Nothing good happens in comfort zones. Forget Coachella, Glastonbury, and Art Basel. Here are some festivals to consider for 2016 for a fix of art, tech, music, wellness, and everything in between.
ISSUE No 3
WHAT:Further Future WHERE:Nevada WHY: 2016 will be the second year of this desert experience. Dress up; stay in tents or an RV. It’s not Burning Man, but you will find Robot Heart. Further Future…if you haven’t you should.
WHAT:Envision WHERE:Costa Rica WHY: Reiki, yoga, wellness, meditation, beautiful sunshine, a didgeridoo or two…self expression at its finest. It’s not for the uptight—maybe the future you? www.envisionfestival.com
WHAT:Mutek WHERE:Barcelona WHY: Art, tech, music. It’s a celebration of digital excess. The one in Mexico this year was electric, fascinating, and generally highlights the future at its finest. Next stop, Barcelona in 2016. www.mutek.mx/en
WHAT:Zona Maco WHERE:Mexico, DF WHY: Because let’s face it, Mexico, DF is the coolest city in the world right now. What! Have you seen/heard what’s happening there?
WHAT:Summit at Sea WHERE:The Ocean WHY: When described to me as Burning Man meets a TED talk on a cruise ship, I was skeptical. I’m now a convert. I learned, connected, danced, and felt honored to be there.
