Conscious clubbing – Wake Up Ibiza Festival

Stall holders, performers and healers came together in a magical afternoon of celebration and love. Highlights included island favourite Kareem’s ecstatic dance set and live reagge from Jahbless and his band. The workshop area saw a stream of practicioners and the sunset meditation from Solara was particularly popular in the atmospheric gardens deep in the heart of the island.
The festival returns on Thursday September 10, 2015 for its second instalment with another afternoon of healing and exploring higher consciousness. The collective bring together workshops, screenings, live music performances, yoga, audio-visual displays, healthy food and drink, children’s entertainment and an intimate dance arena to celebrate the New Moon and all the new beginnings it signals.
