Enchanted Forest Gathering Releases 2015 Recap Video

EF_4

Known for continuously breaking the future elite of the underground with some of the biggest international names in bass music, Enchanted Forest Gathering is best characterized by four principles — uniting sacred, sexy, silly and saucy elements for an experience like none other! Previous lineup installments have boasted a standout musical roster featuring artists such as KOAN Sound, Random Rab, Liquid Stranger, Phutureprimitive, Ott, Papadosio, Desert Dwellers and Opiuo. This year’s lineup will be announced in March and will include over 50 artists across four stages.

To ignite your excitement for 2016, Enchanted Forest Gathering has released the 2015 After Video, produced by Megan Stone. The video showcases the plethora of activities that await surrounding the lush landscape of Black Oak Ranch.

Building upon a reputation for eclectic tastes in electronic and live music, Enchanted Forest Gathering has evolved into a festival that fosters the growth of the conscious movement community. What began as a renegade series of impromptu instruction has now become an interactive component of the festival experience as Enchanted Forest Gathering places yoga, dance and flow arts front-and-center, including a mini-flow arts festival as main fixture of the festival. Past teachers have included the world-renowned KK Ledford (Fire & Nectar, Order & Chaos ~ Asana and Astrology), Rigzin, Holly Baade/The Joyful Warrior, Forest Schrodt, Jonathan Livingston Baxter, Kandice Korves-Kaus, Nova and many more. This year’s stellar yoga, movement, and flow teachers will be announced in March along with the music lineup.

Additionally, Enchanted Forest Gathering plays host to a bold educational forum throughout the day including four types of workshop zones providing guests an opportunity to broaden their horizons in such subjects as Spirituality & Science, Nourishment & Nutrition, Sexuality & Relationships, and Permaculture & Ancestral Arts.

With a mere 245 attendees in 2010 to 3,000 anticipated this year, the rapid growth of Enchanted Forest Gathering speaks volumes to the festival’s unique offerings of innovative micro-environments and peak experiences. Revelers may find their journey leads them to interactive spaces, which include The Nectar Temple – a next level healing area, the late night tea lounge that features live jazz trios, and the Crystal Dome – an amalgamation of healing and wondrous stones collected from around the world, a late night comedy stage or the visionary art studio.

At its new larger home on Black Oak Ranch, the festival will expand its offerings to include a silent disco and day care services among other key additions. This is a perfect homage to the historical land of the Grateful Dead, Wavy Gravy, Earthdance Festival, and the famed Camp Winnarainbow.
