“The sixth annual installment of Enchanted Forest Gathering,Northern California’s celebrated music, yoga, flow-arts and conscious movement festival, has just announced its most heavy-hitting music lineup to date. Taking place July 22-24, 2016, the Gathering’s headliners include England’s forefather of psychedelic electronica Shpongle,the festival circuit’s unofficial Funkiest Diplomat The Polish Ambassador, plus MartyParty and Ooah (of The Glitch Mob) who combine forces as the melodic bass duo PANTyRAiD making a highly-anticipated return after a three year hiatus. Rounding out the electronic list of headliners is West Coast bass movement champion Minnesota and soulful Chicago trio Autograf.
Included among the much-hyped live acts headlining in 2016 is a three-hour, otherworldly trance set from groovy world-hip-hop fusion group Hamsa Lila, a vivid harmonic storytelling experience by ethereal melody-weaver Ayla Nereo, and two passionately devotional music sets from Fanna Fi Allah – a leading representation of ancient Sufi Qawwali music. Grammy-nominated, drum and bass Reggae stylist Youssoupha Sidibe, indie-rock electronica band Lila Rose and ecstatic vocalist and innovative composer Suzanne Sterling will also deliver spirited live performances over the course of the weekend.
Joining the musical headliners for the three-day festival at the musically historical Black Oak Ranch in Laytonville, Northern California are KRNE, Stélouse, Thirftworks, Bluetech, Morillo, Clozee, Love and Light, Matthew Human and Friends, Cello Joe plus many more! With over 50 acts playing across four alluring stages – the River Stage, the Hearth Stage, the Mighty Oak Stage and the Shower Party Stage – Enchanted Forest Gathering combines the close knit community vibes of a small festival with the upscale caliber of production and talent of a larger festival. The result is a unique, holistic, transformational experience that the festival’s founders have light-heartedly dubbed as “Sacred, sexy, silly and saucy.”
By day, Enchanted Forest Gathering provides attendees with a myriad of intellectual and body motivational activities including educational talks, forums, dance and flow classes, yoga, workshops and music at the River Stage. At sunset and continuing under the moonlight; the Hearth, Mighty Oak and Shower Party stages will play bassy-deliciousness for participants to feast their ears on until the wee hours of the morning. And for the night owls, the Nectar Temple healing area and the amalgamation of healing stones at the Crystal Dome will always be available for exploring. Continue on with a journey to the late night comedy stage or visionary art studio and splash around in the river, which will play host to its very own River Stage, a non-alcoholic elixir bar and lounge area for water immersion and fun whether you’re planning to relax or rage in its depths.
Throughout the weekend, Enchanted Forest Gathering will be both teaching and promoting healthy lifestyles. In addition to the stages for performances and music, the grounds will have a vendor area, home to organic food, craft and clothing vendors from local sources. All merchants will be encouraged to use biodegradable items and a “green team” will be working with the festival to help compost food waste and recycle. As always, the Gathering will be an alcohol-free event, allowing guests to focus solely on the experience and surrounding energy.
Tickets for the festival are available via the Enchanted Forest Gathering website: EnchantedForestMendo.com.

Laurel York, a lifelong resident of Asheville and President of Jam In The Trees, LLC, helped bring the idea for the event to fruition during a visit with friends from Asheville and Canada that “mentioned Pisgah Brewing is a perfect location and felt it would attract people from all over with the right musical lineup. That started the ball rolling toward creating an event that would be a celebration of authentic Roots Music, community, and philanthropy (a portion of the proceeds will go to a local not-for-profit, Wild Forests & Fauna (WildFF), in one of the area’s finest outdoor music venues” said York.
“Jam in the Trees is shining a bright light bringing our community together in support of the Big Tree Project which focuses on the biggest, baddest trees in Western NC and beyond, that generate the most benefits to surrounding ecosystems and biodiversity.” Benjamin Colvin, Executive Director WildFF, goes on to say, “Del McCoury Band, the Wood Brothers and this whole lineup connects in spirit with WildFF… we all want people to go outside, get connected, get lost a little, and ACT to protect our forests for future generations!”
Jam In The Trees and Pisgah Brewing will deliver award-winning musicians, exquisite local food offerings, VIP events with the artists, and down-home fun, celebrating authentic roots and Americana music in a setting that will be as much a part of the festival as a the all-star Americana lineup showcasing acoustic and electric music which encompasses various American roots music styles, including country, roots-rock, folk, bluegrass, and rhythm and blues.
“We are extremely pleased to be working to bring Jam In The Trees to Pisgah Brewing. Those that attend our events know that we treat our attendees right and the music is always top notch. This event will be no different. Come join us for a fun event next August and get your tickets early as we expect this to sell out quickly once the additional artists are announced!” said Benton Wharton, the Events Manager for Pisgah Brewing.”
