After a magnificent 2017 edition in the pristine Costa Rican lagoon, Envision Festival is gearing up for a magical 8th edition in 2018!
We think of Costa Rica and our minds effortlessly wander off to the scenic locations, the breezy evenings on the white sands of the beaches in and around, and the heart-warming food and culture of the place. Another thing that has become synonymous with the life of Costa Rica is the Envision Festival, that completed its 7th edition this year, and oh, in what style!
With gorgeous rain-forest backdrops, 4 mesmerizing stages, and 6 workshop spaces, Envision Festival aims to spread innovative ideas and build consciousness through music, thought leading panels and workshops, and mind-easing meditation and yoga, to transform their audiences and liberate them from the socially induced and restrictive mindsets.
Gearing up for their 8th edition next year, the producers of Envision Festival have just announced an exciting Phase 1 lineup:
With 4 enchantingly themed stages at the venue, there will be a bit for all attendees and their musical tastes. The Sol Stage will see the likes of multi-instrumentalist indie electronic act Bob Moses, singer-songwriter Xavier Rudd, South American live Tribal Tech House Band Matanza, soul-electronic act Manic Focus and much more.
Luna Stage will be taken over by CloZee, Thriftworks, Desert Dwellers and Random Rab, who will be returning for the eighth year in a row to master the sunrise set.
The deep techno sounds will go down at the Lapa stage, where Italian techno legend DJ Tennis, the astonishing Behrouz, Spanish techno giants Audiofly, Israeli house music giant Chaim, German live electronic purveyor Monolink , and many more that will be announced in time to come.
As a Costa Rican festival, Envision will bring Latin American experiential sounds to the forefront with sets by Mantanza (Chile), Chancha via Circuito (Argentina), La BOA (Bogotá Orchestra Afrobeat / Colombia), Patterns (CR) and local underground favourite Santos y Zurdo (CR).

Expanding the experience beyond the musical horizons, Envision Festival will host a number of activities and thought-provoking sessions. So far announced on the World-Class Yoga Instruction sessions are Gina Caputo, Carson Clay Calhoun, and Robin Martin. Through the spirit of yoga and self-introspection, these sessions aim at making their audiences dive deep into their consciousness and find the underlying purpose and true path to their happiness.
The Thought Leading Workshops will be led by astrologer Kaypacha, social activist and Dakota Access Pipeline Protest leader Winona LaDuke, and Bioneers co-founder Nina Simons. With an all-round coverage of consciousness and progressive thinking, Envision is marking itself as one of the most thought-provoking and life positive festivals. The festival calls upon similar world thinkers, to experience life in a better light and to learn through introspection.
The serene beauty of the Costa Rican coast and a festival of forward thinkers, music aficionados, and an awakening festival experience, what’s not to love about the entire experience! Slated to take place from February 22nd to 25th, 2018, we just can’t wait for the next edition of Envision Festival to come up!
