A setting like no other

Enjoy our diverse musical offering split across four stages each with their own distinct feel, It’s easy to catch something new on the main stage before getting lost in The Woods or praise the bass down on the temple stage before experiencing The Sunrise while situated way above the clouds.

Wellness

Our wellbeing area right at the centre of the festival is equally abundant in its offerings.  A diverse schedule, including several yoga classes each day with workshops on inspirational themes of all kinds such as plant-based medicine, tarot, and Ayurveda. Evenings’ provide the opportunity to explore soulful celebrations, with chanting, a cacao ceremony and a selection of talented musicians. Lovers of all things well-being could very happily spend the entire four days in this area alone.

Community is the heart

We’re all guests in the village of Polkovnik, whose residents make us feel very welcome, each year we’re blessed by the village choir of local ‘babas’ dressed in full traditional attire, alongside Kukeri dancers.
