Opening & Closing Ceremonies
with Bermalva, The Bhakti Connection & Friends
The opening and closing rites performed during the festival are an important and potent anchoring point for gathering and containing the energies specific to each years’ festival evolution. They open a platform for all to ground, centre and align with the Cosmic and Earth forces present for focus. Each year the rites change according to the needs of that particular time and space – reassuring and uplifting the flow of the festival, as a weekend-long sacred ceremony.
Join the opening on Friday at 5pm and closing on Sunday at 4:30pm
Carved out of a natural amphitheater of sand, this epic evening camp fire is one of the single most memorable parts of the festival. All voices and instruments join together round the warm fire, roasting marshmallows and singing heartfelt hymns into the late of the night. Fires are stoked both Friday and Saturday night at the festival.
