Enchanted Forest Gathering creates close-knit community experiences within a fairy tale setting of majestic Oak trees complete with refreshing watering holes and winding river in Laytonville, CA. Intimate in size but offering up large-scale festival production, Enchanted Forest Gathering showcases over 70 internationally-acclaimed musicians performing atop stunningly-constructed stages - each one a piece of art in itself, including heavy bass headliners Shpongle, The Polish Ambassador, and PANTyRAiD, and live music legends such as Hamsa Lila and Ayla Nereo.
Rounding out the expansive list of marvels to discover at the 2016 gathering include three zones dedicated to yoga, flow arts, and dance/movement with over 50 classes plus educational talks and forums. Also nestled in the forest is an interactive Kids’ Village with professional day care services, and an array of playful micro-environments to find magical moments such as the Crystal Dome, Nectar Temple, Tea Lounge, Comedy Stage, and Visionary Art Gallery. Placing a heightened focus on maximizing participant comfort in as many areas as possible, Enchanted Forest Gathering boasts dance floors made of foam, shade and chill zones provided for every stage with Kombucha on tap, trees providing natural shade for camping, delicious and healthy food vendors - all within a safe, alcohol-free environment promoting a “Get saucy, not sauced!” policy.
