Transformational Village FestivalS 2023

UPDATING NOW… January 2023 ..…. I’m attempting to update the calendar. Note that I have included a lot of festivals that are not settled yet – I’d rather you be able to check in on them. If you want to find out more, please click through to their websites to see the latest info. I have pulled events that have gone defunct, to the best of my knowledge, feel free to reach out if you want to know about a fave that you don’t see here.

SUPPORT YOUR FAVE EVENTS ….. As a festival lover, note that these festivals are fragile financially, many won’t make it through this storm. We have lost many beloved events and will continue to lose more….. you, their loyal community, can help them make it through this. Reach out to them, talk to them, hold fundraisers or ask how you can help – As community gatherings, it is only community that will keep them afloat through these times.

WANT TO PARTICIPATE? Festival Fire does not book music, artists or anything else, we’re just a calendar! Most festivals open applications 6-8 months in advance of the event. If you are interested in applying as a performer, volunteer, crew, media, workshop presenter or something else, click through to the festival’s website and look for their applications there.

LUCIDITY FESTIVAL ~ 10th Anniversary

April 7-9, 2023 Live Oak Campground, Santa Ynez, California
The Great Synthesis, our 10th chapter of the Lucid Saga, marks the beginning of a new trilogy. As such, dreamers will notice the convergence of songlines from the past. Our totem animals from our first six years return along with the villages they stood watch over, and will be integrated into the elemental realms of the last 3 chapters. Just as Earth spirals through the seemingly infinite chasms of space-time, so, too, does the collective consciousness of the dreamers of the Lucid Multiverse spiral upwards and outwards into greater octaves of unity and expansiveness. All the information, skills, experience, and challenges of the last 10 years are ready to be stirred into the cauldron of integration.

DESERT HEARTS

May 5-8, 2023 Los Coyotes, CA
This isn’t just another meaningless party. This is about finding a new kind of freedom. A point where you reach your mental breaking point and come to your specific realization that is meaningful at exactly the right place, exactly the right time, and exactly the stage of life that you are currently in. Desert Hearts is about coming together in love, collectively, individually, and supernaturally. This is about the healing of land and souls. This is about touching heaven, even if only just for a few days. What we are doing is real. It’s more real and more true than anything we’ve ever been privileged enough to be a part of. It’s time to wake up, into a dream world where real life is mystically blissful–to a place where we won’t ever want to fall asleep because reality is finally better than our wildest dreams. This is what Desert Hearts is all about. We Are All Desert Hearts.

A common love for music, community, nature, culture, and consciousness has encouraged us all to unite and give back to the community that has always given us love, inspiration and provided growth. In its 14 years, Stilldream has gone from us all trying to see where we could take it, to realizing that Stilldream itself has indeed been taking us all on a ride that we could have never imagined.

PLANTS EN CHANTS

July 2023 no dates yet Salem Oregon
In devotion to song, ceremony & heart felt communion with the healing plant Kin-dom. This gathering is intended to develop and strengthen ‘medicine culture’ thru the healing arts of holistic education, song-sharing, life-as-ceremony, and supportive community. It recognizes ‘medicines’ as the force of nature that cures dis-ease, that takes us from being sick to being free. This event aligns more with deep herbalism, which cultivates a relationship thru plants to the healing presence of Nature, a pro-active approach to health, and less with the ‘shallow herbalism’ of ‘take the tincture and make the symptoms go away’, a greener version of the pharmaceutical model. It acknowledges plants as elders in the society of nature as it exists on planet earth, and therefore teachers to the adolescent human species. As such, they can keep us aligned with the healthy functioning of the planetary metabolism, mirrored in our own inner and social ecologies. Plants enChant is intended to honor and give space for their wisdom, to activate our abilities to receive it, and put this guidance into practice.

BURNING MAN

August 27 -Sept 4, 2023 Black Rock City, Nevada
Once a year, tens of thousands of participants gather to create Black Rock City in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert, dedicated to community, art, self-expression, and self-reliance. They depart one week later, having created unbelievable artistic experiences, and having left no trace whatsoever. As the dust settles from our Waking Dreams, we already cannot wait for Black Rock City 2023. Let’s build an even more radically inclusive and sustainable city and global community.

Our intention is to generate society that connects each individual to his or her creative powers, to participation in community, to the larger realm of civic life, and to the even greater world of nature that exists beyond society. We believe that the experience of Burning Man can produce positive spiritual change in the world. The touchstone of value in our culture will always be immediacy: experience before theory, moral relationships before politics, survival before services, roles before jobs, embodied ritual before symbolism, work before vested interest, participant support before sponsorship. And we will always burn the Man.

Through the timeless action of circling the fire, in part from the pulsing of moving closer to music and away, and closer and away, there is a breaking away of the armor. The pieces we sensitive people need to cope day to day, come down and we begin to expand and open.

COSMIC CONVERGENCE

New Years Eve Dec 30, 2023 – Jan 2, 2024 Lake Atitlan, Guatemala
The systems that uphold contemporary industrial society are neither adequate nor future-ready. Simultaneously, there has never been a time where individuals and small communities have had more access to tools and technologies with the power to recode the operating systems that underpin this reality.

As the technological singularity approaches ever closer, we have the opportunity to code new systems of abundance. By remaining passive passengers on Spaceship Earth, we may encounter runaway artificial intelligence programmed to extract value from the material world, leading to the extinction of the human species.
