Imagine a festival that's as much of an inward journey and circus as it is a music festival and you'll have Imagine Festival—a three-day fest in Atlanta, Georgia that begins tomorrow, August 26 and ends on Sunday, August 28. The festival concept is equal parts immersive and expressive, with electronic acts lasting into the wee morning hours.
The Imaginarium is, perhaps, the pinnacle of the festival—a city of sorts that guests can enter and experience a higher sense of consciousness in a world separated from the outside—a world defined by the connections on the inside. Sacred teachings take place in the Astral Arts Camp, where live painting, yoga classes, henna painting, and Wisdom Keepers await you.
Outside the Imaginarium is a full-throttle lineup of electronic and jamtronica acts, with headliners The Disco Biscuits and Gramatik, playing till 3 a.m. Lotus, EOTO, Papadosio, Polish Ambassador, Snails, Phutureprimitive, and my personal favorite—Break Science—also have nighttime sets, while countless other artists are set to bring the funk during the day.
There will be workshops all weekend, including next-level sessions in sacred geometry, ecstatic dance, tantric hatha, hooping, and mandala-making waiting curious minds. On-site camping is just outside the festival doors, and give festival goers free (unlimited, they say) showers, free yoga, and a nightly silent disco.
Beyond the music, workshops, art, and Imaginarium, Cirque USA will be part of the entire production, creating world-class cirque performances and bringing another layer of circusry and creation to the event.
Imagine a magical world and find yourself amidst the festivities tomorrow. We hope to see you there.
