Costa Rica’s rising tropical festival, Envision, is just weeks away. In its eighth year, the festival continues its mission to awaken human potential with art, spirituality, yoga, music, dance, performance, education, sustainability and fundamental connection with nature.
From Feb. 21-25, thousands will flock to Uvita to experience a stellar lineup of music, which has been announced in full. In addition to headliners Xavier Rudd, Bob Moses, DJ Tennis and more who were announced in August, Envision has revealed the addition of acts like TroyBoi and The Russ Liquid Test to the lineup.
“We really wanted to bring in best in breed artists from every corner of the globe,” says festival co-founder and music director Josh Wendel. “But we also wanted to create a platform for some of the best emerging talent in Costa Rica and its neighbors. In addition to being our most intentional lineup yet, the artists we’ve got coming for Envision 2018 are both world famous and driven to achieve the same impact we want to make in the world. Through language and culture we’re united by the dream we share, and that just makes the experience of coming together on the same dancefloor so much more special.”
Though Envision 2018 is already 70 percent sold out, four-day general admission tickets can still be purchased here.
A considerable amount of time has passed since the Oregon Eclipse Gathering, but exclusive sets continue to appear online as artists upload their live acts or, in some cases, even go as far as to re-record their sets.
Now former attendees and eclipse chasers from around the globe can now enjoy sets from the likes of Bassnectar, Minnesota, CloZee, and many more, organized into stage-by-stage playlists thanks to one SoundCloud user. From the deep, dark tech house of the Sky Stage, to the psytrance of the Earth Stage, to the festival’s bass head haven at The Moon Stage, over 50 live and re-recorded sets are available for stream from Oregon’s Global Eclipse Gathering, held Aug. 17-23, 2017.
Though international eclipse festivals are often based around trance and downtempo, make no mistake that the bass, jam, and house acts are actually considered guests in this awe-inspiring, transformative festival experience. Relive sets from the Global Eclipse Gathering’s Earth, Moon, Sun, and Sky stages below.
Over the years BangOn! has distinguished itself as one of the premier names in New York City nightlife and underground culture. With the success of their many New Year’s Eve celebrations and the rise of Elements Festival to include a day long event in Brooklyn and a three-day long event in Lakewood Pennsylvania on Memorial Day, it’s easy to see that the folks over at BangOn! know exactly what they are doing. Perhaps BangOn!’s most anticipated event of the year is its annual Halloween bash, Warehouse Of Horrors, which will take place at a secret location in Brooklyn on October 28.
As the weather cools and the festival season comes to a close, music lovers begin looking for indoor thrills. Every Halloween, BangOn! puts together a bizarre carnival of freakish sights and world class music. This year BangOn! has raised the bar even higher with a mind-melting lineup that will keep you up at night. Legendary DJ and producer Fat Boy Slim will be gracing the stage at this year’s Warehouse Of Horrors. An artist as well-known as Fat Boy Slim needs little introduction. Joining the groundbreaking legend will be one of electronic music’s brightest rising stars, CloZee. Hailing from Toulouse, France, CloZee has enjoyed a mercurial rise to stardom. After smashing sets at Shambhala and Oregon Eclipse Gathering, as well as opening for both Bassnectar and Pretty Lights this year, CloZee is quickly becoming a household name in the world of bass music. Rounding out this year’s Warehouse of Horrors will be Detlef, Maximono and Golden Pony.
