The Gaia Festival is a multi-disciplinary showcase of music, adventure, art and wellness activities that will take place in the lap of nature. The two-day gathering will be held in the Kullu district of Himachal Pradesh at Raison, a village surrounded by deodar forests next to the river Beas.
Electronic music DJ-producers Akhlad Ahmed, Alboe, Amos, BLOT!, Bogus, Diversion Ahead, Jamiie, Sickflip, Stalvart John, Tansane and Vridian are part of the line-up. Also on the bill are singer-songwriters Semwal, Shubhank Sharma and Sparsh Dangwal, and sitar player Rishab Rikhiram Sharma.
Chandigarh-based studio YogAmoreShala will conduct workshops in yoga, tribal trance dance, sound healing and chakra activation during the weekend. Off-road experiences company The Alternate Terrain will lead explorations of forest trails on ATVs; and music and art events company Nrtya will hold an exhibition featuring artists from across the country.
In keeping with their vision “to create a holistic experience that starts with inching closer towards being sustainable”, organiser Gaah has pledged to plant a tree for every ticket sold for the Gaia festival. Sustainability partner Earthlings First will be recycling the waste generated at the event.
