If you thought 2018 is still far away, think again. In approximately four short months, the new year will be upon us – which means a whole new festival season, too. Envision Festival is leading the charge with its just-announced lineup; it's officially time to start thinking ahead.
Come February 21-25, 2018, the jungles and beaches of San José, Costa Rica, will be lit thanks to the festival's incredible music lineup, world-class yoga sessions and thought leadership workshops. Topping the musical bill on the lineup is multi-instrumentalist indie electronic act Bob Moses, the powerful singer-songwriting of Xavier Rudd, South American live Tribal Tech House Band Matanza, the soulful electronic genre-blasting Manic Focus, electro-funk outfit The Russ Liquid Test, bass music favorite Troyboi, and many more world-class live acts taking over the Sol Stage.
Envision’s Luna Stage will offer bass-heavy tones from the Queen of Glitch-Hop herself CloZee, experimental master Thriftworks, the sonic bass duo Desert Dwellers, and with great excitement, Random Rab will return for his eighth year with an introspective sunrise set to the Luna Stage. The producers are excited to unveil more big names and several of their favorite up-and-coming secrets in the second round.
As a Costa Rican festival, Envision always highlights some of Latin America’s most experiential sounds. This year will see the aforementioned Mantanza (from Chile), Chancha via Circuito (Argentina), La Bogotá Orchestra Afrobeat (Colombia), Patterns (Costa Rica) and local underground favorite Santos y Zurdo (Costa Rica). Check out our playlist below:
The Envision experience extends far beyond the music, offering an awakening journey for those who seek adventure, thirst for knowledge, and strive to be apart of an inspiration-driven community. In accordance with this ethos, the festival has also revealed its first round of World-Class Yoga Instruction including classes lead by Gina Caputo, Carson Clay Calhoun, and Robin Martin, plus Thought-Leading Workshops with astrologer Kaypacha, activist and Dakota Access Pipeline Protest leader Winona LaDuke, and Bioneers co-founder Nina Simons.
