One way to reduce your carbon footprint is to camp at Universo Paralello. Ten days can seem like an eternity for some though, so the fest has organized the Overland Pop-Up hospitality service. Overland offers tent experiences with hotel-like amenities such as exclusive showers, breakfast, security and more, to approximately 500 people each year. There are also a number of hotels and other options in the nearby town of Ituberá.
Bring The Family
Tent or no tent, Universo Paralello is safe for the whole family, and children younger than 12 get in for free.
Since 2004, Univero Paralello has promoted its sustainability initiative called the CircuLou Project – Culture Conservation Zone. Fest-goers are encouraged to submit projects to foster sustainability through the following categories — art, environment, health, multimedia, trance and psychedelic, education, economics, and communication.
Bahia's capital, Salvador, is the closest major hub to Pratigi, so booking a flight to there is recommended. The subsequent 3.5-4 hour drive from Salvador is a far friendlier option than 20+ hours from Rio or Sao Paulo.
