Everywhere in the art
Art and external blow your mind. Everywhere you look, the scenery of colors crazy twists and mixes: LED lights Music venues, spray painters group on canvas, art installations glowing neon. For young people, and the audience for free-spirited, which is just what the doctor ordered.
The festival is more or less reduced to a New Age Workshops today, raging music at night, and the ability to lie down on the grass and look at the art at any time trippy. About 4,000 people resort to this event, dressed expression. Winged fairy girl blowing bubbles could be the next to a boy with a blue and red clown nose dreadlocks, while the tattooed man in a bowling shirt hanging with a lady wears a head of tutu'ed Unicorn. Lack of creativity and self-expression are not issues here.
The music is the main draw. While the outside of art do not keep Lollapalooza -caliber names, and they do not offer a good variety of sounds. More than 75 teams play, and which types of reggae to funk extends to bluegrass, jam, hip defect, jazz, psychedelia and classic rock music. Four phases spread over the gardens, and they jump from noon until dawn. They're all relatively close together, so no real problems go from one to another.
The main stage will host the most important news. Another great dome. A metal honeycomb structure partially covered the block where the DJ and EDM fans. Vital place of the party and the Dome will host matches of the night (and sunrise). Stage is smaller in the middle of the road, especially for workshops and performance. Fire twirlers, acrobats, jugglers and other technical presentations flowing happening here. Even popular stage is intimate, shady trees of calm, sound business.
And hold a lot of workshops during the day, and some teaching skills is very unusual.

Among the most prominent slacklining, where instructors how a platform line using carabiners and pulley system, and how to maintain balance while in the line; and workshops Zen, which enlighten the audience about the work of breathing, meditation and sound balance. Yoga classes and immersion classes shamanic sound are very popular, too.
Utilities and prominent sculptures spread gardens. Strolling through a patch of huge wooden flowers. Check the spider metal or rubber huge balloon. Explore the illuminated trees. Most of the pieces are interactive and invites viewers to eat or pedal or steering wheel. Other immersive experiences are the canvases of the stage of society, where painters created to work on the rhythm of the music.
