Strawberry Field features Acid, Hip-Hop, New School Afro-Beats, House, Disco & Funk with the likes of Horse Meat Disco, Ceephax Acid Crew and Modenine. There will also be some some seriously talented local and experienced artists in the space over the weekend.
Music Playground is one of the funnest areas with a laid back vibe of improv sessions and organized sessions under the shade of trees. It’s a creative space to jam and open yourself to new music, influences and atmosphere.
Two other big draws are the Ethnic Market as well as Healing Fields. Ethnic Market has a lot of handmade items and offers a global market type of vibe. Check out goods from artists and craftspeople!
Healing Fields is where you can work your mind, body and soul with workshops and talks. Well being, healthy eating, natural healing, therapies & remedies, spirituality, yoga, and massage are all included in the sessions. You can also chill and relax, meditate or just unwind from getting activated by all of the music at the festival.
All in all, Earth Garden is a magical place … you can get lost in the Mediterranean sun and escape everyday life for four days of a magical global culture unlike any other festival experience. How can you NOT want to go to that? It will change the way you experience a music festival forever!
