Envision Festival. A festival that brings together members from around the globe for a gathering unlike any other. Situated in Uvita, Costa Rica, packed with glistening beaches, dense jungles and “pura vida” at every greeting, the sold-out Envision Festival harbored 4,700 international attendees from February 25th-28th this 2016.

Know for its uniqueness and world class curation of music, art, and live performances in addition to yoga/movement classes, and innovative workshops, the Enivison Festival wowed attendees with its ridiculous lineup at its four incredible stages. Check out the Envision Festival recap video below.

Here’s the cool thing about Envision Festival in my opinion: they are leaders in green festival design. Throughout the festival, all “single-use” cups and tableware were banned and replaced with reusable items and festival-wide dish washing program, drastically reducing the amount of waste at the festival. Moreover, all the generators were powered by biodiesel and most Enivision structures were built from bamboo or other locally-sourced materials. That to me, speaks so powerfully about the festival’s integrity and value that they put towards the environment.

Beyond saving the planet, the festival hosted Shpongle, The Human Experience, Dimond Saints, Spoonbill, and CloZee where they performed on an imported Funktion1 sound system on the Luna Stage. The Luna Stage was designed by Carey Thompson, and was shaped in a massive butterfly. It incoroprated 3D projection mapping by the famed Mexico City artists, Golem; performances were viewable across the expansive field, where attendees could climb a massive bamboo jungle gym to watch the shows.

The Village was a bustling area, bursting with educational workshops, inspirational speakers, vendors, and fresh produce available at the Vida Market. The Village Stage hosted nutrional experts like David Wolfe and live musical performances by Vir, Camilo, and Incus. The Village boasted unconventional souvenirs handcrafted by vendors distributing everything from jewelry, to art, to clothing. Envision_festival_costarica_thevillage
