The international festival scene has been constantly evolving over the last decade and now provides an all encompassing experience that goes far beyond the standard musical entertainment.
In recent years, key brands have been actively involved in shaping and driving a dynamic vision alongside emerging micro-festivals, who add a complimentary outlook. Collectively these events and festivals are creating shifts in consciousness and paving the way for change.
There is now a far greater emphasis on mutual participation, in preference to a one-way information exchange.
Individuals are actively encouraged to participate in talks, workshops, artistic activity and more, as a means to facilitate collective creative expression.
As a result, this participation empowers those attending to become co-creators of their own experience, whilst sharing the platform with other attendees.
What forms from this sharing of knowledge and creative expression is a totally unique inter-dependent festival experience.
This communal culture cannot be mimicked or recreated at will. The emphasis on parallel participation allows individuals to get into their own flow state, which maximises their productivity, learning and understanding.
This powerful practice leaves individuals feeling safe, accepted and open to a meaningful transformation which extends far beyond when the festival finishes.
These types of festivals have come at a crucial time for social equality and understanding. They answer a resounding call from communities across the globe that hold a strong desire for change and reconnection.
It’s without coincidence that this craving arrives during a monumental spike in our political and social history. Entire nations are openly feeling highlighted and divided with the constant governmental and corporate changes that consciously outweigh our own individual requirements.
How to lead the change?
