Preparations are in full swing for one of the biggest and respected festivals of the year; Earth Garden, which is happening this weekend starting from Thursday 1st June through Sunday 4th June.
This will be the 11th year the festival has opened it’s doors to the public and is going to be the biggest footprint ever for Earth Garden with a 30% increase. Furthermore, Earth Garden has been in fact, voted as one of the Top 15 festivals in Europe, which further encouraged the organizers to launch the home-grown Festival internationally.
The festival organizers add something new every year and this year is no different with the inclusion of an additional camping site, a beautifully re-located Electronic Sphere, Music Playground Jamming, newly located Healing Fields, an elevated wine area, Strawberry Hill, an added day to the festival and with over 100 artists flying in for the event. All other attractions which are now synonymous with the festival such as the Ethnic Market, several stalls, a Fun Park for children and the Enchanted Forest will of course be present at this year’s edition.
Whilst most events, weddings and activities have been postponed or cancelled due to the clash of date with the election, Earth Garden seems to be the only mass event, which is going ahead as planned during this coming weekend.
The organizers also noted, that “Earth Garden has always been a festival of unity bringing people together from all walks of life, nationality, beliefs and gender, ever since our first edition 11 years ago. In this respect, we will not tolerate any disrespectful or any partisan behavior. No political associated material or items will be permitted within the Festival grounds.”
Doors open on Thursday 1st June at 1800 hours.
