Take Burning Man, subtract about 50,000 people and add the Costa Rican beach paradise of Bahía Ballena, and you have the Envision Festival. Beginning March 1 and extending through March 4, the festival will include two stages, plenty of electronic and “funky world” music, yoga, art, performance art and plenty of workshops. For example, Divine Playground will be giving an Eye-Awakening Movement and Sound Playshop.
Says the festival flier: “Envision a mix of conscious people from around the globe gathered to share an elevated experience of culture, spirit and community in stunning raw nature!”
Now approaching its second year, the event will be based seven kilometers south of Uvita on the southern Pacific coast, with a backdrop of rain forest-covered mountains.
Tickets, including multiday passes, are available on the festival’s website, www.envisionfestival.com. The official pre-party, dubbed “Premonición,” takes place Feb. 25 at Club Vértigo in San José’s Centro Colón. Doors open at 10 p.m.
