Now we are heading back to the Movement Sanctuary for another evening of world-class music talent on two stages, fire and glow performances, and amazing art installations as we continue in our 13th year of bringing psychedelic music and culture across North America.

I think this is truly amazing. This dial the music which really originates from Goia India is, Something we can all embrace. When I see festivals like the Boom festival. I see all these free spirited individuals giving in to the hypnotic sounds of the psychedelic trance. It gives me shivers down my spine to think that now I’m finding on a get to experience a firsthand. Just what this music does to a person soul in physical form. I cannot wait to come down to this sanctuary and if event. I only live a few blocks away and can easily walk so this is going to be awesome. Hope I get picked to win the tickets. Even if I don’t I will still come because the price for what it is is truly amazing a you can’t beat that.
