Luminate Festival 2017

At Tribal all are welcome to step into a realm of timelessness, discovering a wonderland of organic sculpture, earthen temples and living alters. The heart of Tribal is the sacred fire which calls for all to come and offer their rhythm through acoustic vibrations. Percussion fuses with voice and harmonic instruments to invoke the primal dance within. Everyone is invited to celebrate throughout the night around the fire circle.

Throughout the day, explore and learn from a number of the Knowledge & Inspirational Sharing Sessions (workshops) such as african drumming & dance, didjeridoo, mbira, earth based crafts, story telling, cosmology wisdom and many more that are woven through out the rhythm of the festival timetable.

This unique zone within global festival culture inspires us to draw deeply from the journey within, offering us an opportunity to give our presence to the collaborative experience. 

Our collective vision is that of co-creative community. Tribal is a consciously co-evolving space to share music, dance, exploration and connectivity in remembrance that life is beautiful, the Earth and her elements are sacred and we are all precious beings with gifts of love to share with our Earth family.

Let us celebrate together as one at Luminate 2017.
