[FESTIVAL NEWS] Enchanted Forest Gathering Announces 2016 Headliners + Unveil New Video


Enchanted Forest Gathering – Northern California’s celebrated music, yoga, flow-arts and conscious movement festival – is celebrating it’s sixth annual installment in 2016 and has just announced it’s most heavy hitting lineup to date. Taking place July 22-24, 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 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 highly anticipated live acts headlining in 2016 is a three-hour, 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 live performances over the three-day festival.

Joining the headliners for the Gathering on Black Oak Ranch this year include performances by KRNE, Stélouse, Thirftworks, Bluetech, Morillo, Clozee, Love and Light, Matthew Human and Friends, Cello Joe and many more. With more than 50 acts across four beautifully themed 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 production and talent of a larger one. 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 fest goers 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 goodness for late night revelers to feast their ears on until the early hours of the morning.

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 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.
