Festival 23 is a music festival that also promotes mental health and spiritual well-being.
Festival 23 is coming up fast, and it was recently announced that there are only a limited number of weekend tickets left for those wishing to attend the full event. They announced that one-day tickets will also be available in small numbers, but to fully immerse yourself in the festival experience, then a weekend ticket will be the best way to experience the event.
Not only will the event have DJ sets from talented Australian DJs and international headliners such as Osunlade, Seth Schwarz, Madmotormiquel, Joep Mencke, Henry Saiz, An On Bast, Christopher Coe, LICAXXX and Deep Gosh.
The event also focuses on spiritual well-being so attendees leave feeling better than they arrived, and Festival 23 recently released more information on some of the activities and wellness programs that will be available throughout the event.
Some of the workshops include William Frost’s Breath & Ice Experience where attendees can learn the importance of conscious breathing and how self-awareness can help destress day-to-day life. Dan & Sara (Yes) present Beyond Good & Evil which helps people explore their mind to find their true identity. Megan and Jaide present Emotional Alchemy which teaches how to better process emotions to feel more peaceful, enhance relationships and get more out of life.
There are also going to be art installations to help create an otherworldly environment that people can lose themselves in.
Some of the artists helping add this other dimension to Festival 23 include Benjamin Knock aka KNOCK who is a multi-sensory artist who does things like large-scale mural painting. He also experiments with virtual reality technologies, and his work has been presented internationally at various galleries and outdoor installations.
Spencer Rose is a generative artist who inspired by cellular automata creates artwork projections that show the beauty of life in all its spender and simplicity.
Eaao creates artworks that explore the intersection of light, colour, and form. He makes installations capturing light reflection on water, and how the rippling patterns create a mesmerising sense of movement.
Festival 23 takes place in the rolling hills of the Macedon Ranges near Melbourne, and Starting on Friday the 27th of January the event runs until Sunday the 29th of January.
