Serenity Fest

The spring or Vernal Equinox is a very special time for many people in many different cultures around the world, a time for celebration. This year a few thousand people in southern California will be celebrating the occasion at the return of Serenity Gathering.

This year marks only the third installment of the independently run festival, which still retains a certain intimacy and sense of community that can get lost at a larger, corporate festival. The 2016 edition will take place March 17th to 20th, at Lake Hemet in Idyllwild, CA – an ideal setting to set the mood for the magical experience that unfolds for Serenity Gathering attendees.

This year’s lineup is another pleasant surprise from the young festival. Phase 1 boasted an eclectic yet bass-heavy roster headlined by Emancipator and featuring Ill Gates, Phutureprimitive, Desert Dwellers, Big Wild and Defunk. With an initial release that could support many festivals alone, Serenity Gathering out did itself with phase 2. Nahko and Medicine for the People, Random Rab, Pimps of Joytime, Filibusta, and Lafa Taylor plus many, many more add their names to this absolutely stacked showcase of talent.

Organizers have decided to make a couple changes to the structure of the festival this year. Last year there were four stages; this year they will focus their care, attention and resources on only two – the main stage and a live stage – and try to make them as amazing as possible. In addition to the musical experience, this year there will be an expanded focus on the spiritual experience with a wide variety of healing and yoga workshops.

Early bird tickets are already gone, and remaining tickets are going fast. GA 3-day passes start at $200 with add-ons available for early entrance to the grounds on Thursday, RV parking, and premium camping upgrades.
