Next weekend we head to our last festival of the season, the 10th year anniversary of the legendary Symbiosis Gathering. There is no shortage of people who to this day are transported to some magical transcendent place when they hear the that special word “Symbiosis” and they are whisked back to 2009 in the Yosemite foothills when they had the best time of their lives. Symbiosis deserves immense credit for doing things their own way and it is safe to say the people involved produce the festival for no other reason than love for what they’re doing. This is not a money driven commercially minded crew one bit. Whether it be taking years off or chasing an eclipse or booking acts you’ve never heard of, Symbiosis does not subscribe to convention. This is not to say there won’t be some of the best music and art on the planet in an epic location on the water because they got that too. Art boats plus music all night equals amazing times. Can’t think of any other festival who’s got that. Check out the homie Gladkill at 2am on Friday night and the rest of the crew popping up for spontaneous sets around the festival the rest of the weekend. Sending Summer out on the perfect golden note, we’ll see you there!
