The festival is geared to create a conscious awareness and express the uplifting power of music and its relationship with nature. Along with four unique outdoor stages there is also the Sanctuary, an oasis for relaxation and rejuvenation where tired bodies can receive massages, energy work, sound healing, yoga, qi-gong, meditation and a variety of workshops and presentations.  Art is also a major component of the festival from large interactive sculpture to live art there will be several exhibits to intoxicate your senses.
