From Envision 2016
“Envision Festival – Costa Rica announces a world-class music, yoga, and speaker lineup for their sixth annual gathering, taking place on the majestic shores of Uvita, Costa Rica from February 25th to 28th, 2016. With the goal of creating a festival that represents the harmonious blending of many different cultures, the musical acts come from nine different countries, span three continents, and represent a wide array of musical genres.
Headlining acts include a rare Central American performance from England’s forefather of psychedelic electronica Shpongle and California’s experimental world fusion favorites Beats Antique Live. Showcasing the lineup’s musical diversity, Envision rounds out headline billing with Berlin’s deep house favorite M.A.N.D.Y., the heart melting vocals of Colorado’s Elephant Revival, and a late night reggae set from St. Croix roots legend Midnite (under their current touring name Akae Beka).
Adding to the list of headlining musical acts are the sultry bass sounds of Grouch, Spoonbill, Dimond Saints, The Human Experience, Beat Fatigue and Envision six year alumni, Random Rab, who returns to deliver another world-renowned sunrise set in the jungle. Additionally, Envision is bringing a strong representation of the underground house world with Bedouin, Lee Reynolds from Desert Hearts, Tara Brooks, Atish, and Costa Rican locals Melissa O and Ivan Cespedes. Live band local favorites include Patterns and Sonambulo. See the flyer for the full lineup with more to be announced.
Envision’s emphasis on creating a platform for different cultures to coexist in a sustainable community resonates throughout the entire event as is evident in the new yoga and movement village, which features an inspiring lineup of top yoga instructors, speakers, and educators including the globally renowned and leading wellness expert David Wolfe, as well as international yoga teacher and motivational speaker to millions Rachel Brathen.
Leading yoga teachers also include the founder of the Goddess Yoga Project and renowned instructor Sianna Sherman, pioneer of the One Yoga movement in Trinidad and Tobago Troy Hadeed, and Classic Hatha Yoga master Marcos Jassan. Workshops include accomplished herbalist 7 Song, architect of the New Paradigm Astrology Cooperative Kaypacha, and Envision festival co-founder and resident permaculture expert Stephen Brooks. Additional classes range from bilingual language classes and African dance to Tai Chi and biomechanical alignment. See below for the full list of workshops and speakers released in this Phase 1 announcement.
Envision is a true festival of the future, encompassing a cultural movement, a sustainable permaculture movement, a spiritual gathering, and an appreciation of humanity and the planet. “I believe that by gathering in community out in nature, we create a rare opportunity for individuals to observe their value systems and inherent human motivations from a new or alternative perspective that is free of social conditioning. At a successful event, participants capture this moment and create from it a forever lasting positive impression.” – says Matt Siegel, co-founder of Envision.
If you haven’t seen it already, the Envision 2016 teaser video by Pure Souls Media, showcases the beautiful environment and enchanting wonderment from the 2015 gathering. The unique Costa Rican backdrop of Envision provides a plethora of other opportunities for the adventurous traveler. Enjoy surfing at sunset, trek to magnificent waterfalls, and camp in the lush jungles of the tropical landscape.
As part of extended efforts to spread Envision’s Core Values, Envision is launching a series of Education Retreats where those who wish to expand their experience beyond the festival may continue to learn and heal. The first event, Embody, takes place February 19th – 24th in Uvita, just ahead of Envision. Details online at Envision Education.
