Serenity Gathering 2016As winter is transitioning into spring, we music lovers are rejoicing. With the warmer weather and longer days comes more and more outdoor events and festivals for us to frolic. Serenity Gathering will once again be celebrating the Spring Equinox, March 17-20, that rare time when the day and night - light and dark - are in perfect balance with one another. This annual production is for those seeking balance within themselves, while enjoying magnificent artwork, captivating speakers, an array of yoga classes, and of course mind-bending, positive music to fuel the nightlong dance party.

Serenity Gathering will feature headliners Shpongle (Simon Posford DJ Set), Nahko and Medicine for the People, Emancipator, Del the Funky Homosapien, rounded out with the likes of ill.Gates, Stephan Jacobs, Phutureprimitive, Random Rab, Thriftworks, Big Wild, Govinda, Mr. Bill, Andreilien, Pumpkin, Bleep Bloop, Lafa Taylor, Defunk, Nico Luminous, Filibusta, and CloZee, just to name a few.

Not only that, Desert Dwellers will be unveiling their new Live Experience, which is not to be missed. Welcoming new souls to share the stage with them including aerial, acrobat, and fire performances, powerful vocals, instrumentalists, and an intricate visionary stage structure, to create a sensory adventure that unfolds before your eyes and ears.

Having more than doubled ticket sales in 2015 from the previous year, Serenity has quickly gained reverence in the California music community and transformational scene. Going into its third year, the gathering will converge on Joshua Tree Retreat Center, a unique architectural landmark on a sacred site in Joshua Tree, CA. The venue itself aims to educate and nourish the infinite human potential, serving as a seemingly perfect place to host such an occasion.

Nestled within this mountainous, desert backdrop, attendees will find no shortage of activities and performances to spend their time enjoying. Healthy and organic sustenance will be provided by food and drink vendors, as well as hand-made goods and art. A healing sanctuary at the heart of the festival will host speakers and workshops. All on top of a spike in the Earth’s magnetic field...Talk about good vibrations.

The Serenity Family has created a haven for freedom of self expression as a catalyst for enlightenment. Through music, visual arts, and co-creativity, attendees will be sure to leave feeling peaceful and liberated.

Three Day General Admission passes are currently available for $259.45 including fees. This includes car camping, and allows you to enter the festival on Friday, March 18. Thursday passes to grant early entry are available for $69.55. RV passes are available, as well, for $138.13. Click here for ticketing information.

There will be late night excitement; there will be sunrise sets. Don’t miss out on the magic that is Serenity Gathering!
