Lineup announced for Envision 2014

March 5, 2015

Are you ready for a funky-electric-earth-fairy-rainbow wonderland? It’s ready for you.

Envision Festival, a multi-day, transformational art and music gathering will be back in 2014 for the fourth time on Costa Rica’s southern Pacific coast. This week, organizers announced the lineup, which will include:

Dave Tipper, Papadosio, Nahko and Medicine for the People, Random Rab, Phutureprimitive, Rising Appalachia Music, Andreilien (Heyoka), Sonámbulo Psicotropical, Kalya Scintilla, The Funk Hunters, Kaminanda, Santos&Zurdo, Pumpkin, Sugarpill, JPOD the beat chef, Stylust Beats, The Human Experience, Liberation Movement, Sasha Rose, DJ Dragonfly, Nominus, Merkaba, Goosebumpz, Soul Visions, Living Light, Plantrae, Cocofunka, Soulacybin, Pasiflora and more.Organizers have also announced some big changes for 2014. The festival is moving to a shaded rainforest enclave five minutes up the road from last year’s venue. This new spot allows for car camping and it is closer to the beach, which will be free to access, organizers say.

A two-minute walk to the ocean and plenty of shade should be welcome news to those who attended in the sweltering heat of the 2013 festival. Optional car camping will also delight 2013 festivalgoers, who were treated to an unseasonal downpour that drenched the grounds, attendants and their gear.

Despite piercing heat and show-stopping tropical thunderstorms, Envision 2013 was a success. Thousands flew from all over the world to witness the live music acts and live painting by more than 20 artists. There was also a variety of yoga, dance, movement and spoken word workshops, as well as a healing sanctuary, performance art, and a kids’ zone.

Here’s a video recap of Envision 2013 from Zippy Lomax.
