Today ThazDope Records reveals its most ambitious project, to date. Joining forces with D.A.B. Entertainment, the experimental bass record label is assembling a weekend long conference dedicated to building a better tomorrow.
From December 7-10 at Pheasant Run Resort in St Charles, Illinois—a western suburb of Chicago—speakers, educators, and activists will come together for seminars, workshops, and clinics on a variety of topics and in a number of fields from yoga and meditation to music therapy and production to permaculture, holistic healing, and energy conservation. Sacred Wellness takes over Pheasant Run the second weekend in December, and the plan is to change the entire game. No big deal.
The high-end resort setting allows fans to relax and enjoy all the amenities of a luxury hotel stay, while also expanding the mind with thought-provoking lectures from experts in a wide-range of cutting-edge technologies and schools of thought. Rest and reinvigorate the mind and body. Just what the doctor ordered, especially in the midst of a high-stress holiday season.
Because it is anchored by the ThazDope Records team, of course there will be performances by some of your favorite artists, which will take place across four stages including a indoor poolside sunrise set. Many of ThazDope's past, present, and future stars will be on-hand, though they are TBA at this time, because the focus is on the workshops, some of which will be curated and cultivated by fans.
Again, this is not a music festival, as ThazDope chief Kevin Moore reminds me, “Our goal is to help educate and create a sustainable living plan for the future.” While the Chicago hub will be the launchpad for this event, there are already plans to expand into the notheast, southeast, northwest, southwest, and even out to Hawai'i.
Tickets and hotel packages for the event will go live on 4/20. Artist and vendor applications will be going live on 7/10. For now we encourage our fans to head on over to the Facebook Event and RSVP for what is sure to be a totally new kind of conference experience.
Moore will be going live on his Spankalicious page tonight and tomorrow night to discuss the concept behind Sacred Wellness, as well as covering ThazDope's Wake The Nation tour, which culminates at The Untz Festival in June in Mariposa, California.
