As a sparkling jewel in the crown of the West Coast festival scene, Symbiosis Gathering seems to have it all: a stunning location right on a body of water, super cool art (much of which you could climb on) by renowned artists, an eclectic program of music, theatrical performances, and speakers, a dedicated kids area, art boats (even a floating stage!), and, perhaps most important of all, warm and welcoming family reunion vibes. All of these ingredients make it an incredible way to close a summer of festivaling.

Now that the haze of dust has settled on our Symbiosis memories, the time feels right to revisit what a magical lovefest the festival continues to be each and every year. Photographer Galen Oakes captured the vibes in his as-per-usual dreamy photos.
