From Enchanted Forest2016
“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.
