After a successful 10 Year Re:Union sold-out festival last year, Symbiosis Gathering will grow into their 2016 Family Tree event, which will run from September 22 to 25. Passes for the multifaceted arts and music festival will go on sale March 8 while Super Early Bird passes are up for grabs until March 10. Participation applications for volunteering, vending, live painting, performing, healing, and more activities are now open.
The epitome of transformational festivals, Symbiosis Gathering embraces the concept of co-creation, inviting the community to build on the festival experience together through a communal love and appreciation for music, art, culture, and well-being. Symbiosis’ ethos manifests Burning Man’s essential concepts of self-reliance and radical expression, creating a wholesome and one-of-a-kind experience centered on you, the participant.
This year’s edition Symbiosis Gathering: Family Tree calls for a gathering of family and friends and serves as a precursor to the Symbiosis Gathering: Oregon Eclipse 2017 event. On August 21, 2017 a total solar eclipse will occur. Festival organizers have secured a site situated directly in the path of the eclipse, marking a monumental moment in festival history.
