Celebrate the Harvest Full Moon, the Autumnal Equinox and the International Day of Peace at the Symbiosis Gathering 2013 at the Woodward Reservoir Regional Park on 14528 26 Mile Road, Oakdale, California, 95361. The five-day camping festival features a massive lineup over four main stages playing a diverse array of live and electronic music, global and galactic bass, house, gypsy, sacred and world fusion. Spend your weekend in an alternate reality teeming with mesmerizing musical performances, cutting edge entertainment (including the first ever Edwardian Ball Roadshow), transformational workshops, a diverse array of yoga and dance classes, world-renowned visual arts and large-scale art installations, ancient wisdom teachings, and gourmet organic food. This is an experience of green living in action backdropped by the crystal waters of the surrounding lake which attendees can swim in.

The lineup at Symbiosis Gathering is mesmerizing, tantalizing, exhilirating, and simply awesome. Lineups include Dakini Rose Devadasi, Dginn, Dov, Monkey Marc, Neptune, Odd Jobs Conspiracy, and the talented performers of the Vau de Vire Society. Vau de Vire Society along with Rosin Coven and other tantalizing acts will be presenting the Edwardian Ball Roadshow from 7pm to 11pm on Sunday night. Vau de Vire Society recently performed at the newest festival First City Festival and they were fantastic. Experience their, and other entertainers’, magic and talented skills as they entrance you into another world that is Symbiosis.

Symbiosis Gathering casts a wide net in drawing from the vibrant and artistic movement that the San Francisco Bay area is well known for and brings in sustainable initiatives and practices to the forefront of the festival experience. Measures include a reusable dish program in the dining area, a Zero Waste policy, procuring environmentally-friendly sources of energy and materials, and educating about sustainability through various educational workshops and activities. Additionally, Symbiosis will host a variety of art installations, permaculture seminars, and ceremonies.

Symbiosis Gathering takes place on September 19-23 and it’s not too late to get your tickets. For more information regarding this festival, please visit
