Oakdale, California gets Nicolas Jaar, Max Cooper & more...

Now that the playa dust has finally been rinsed off Burning Man partygoers, and the mass exodus from Black Rock City is close to finished, Symbiosis Gathering is gearing up for its 10 year reunion at Woodward Reservoir in Oakdale, CA. After taking a hiatus in 2014, Symbiosis is set to take place next week from September 17th - 20th. Headliners including Nicolas Jaar, Damian Lazarus & the Ancient Moons, Tipper, Mumdance and Max Cooper amongst many others will grace four eclectic lakeside stages.

Attendees will be treated with over 3,000 acres of Northern California beauty, shoreline camping, a serene lake divided into various areas for swimming, the debut of art boats and other aquatic art. There will also be a multitude of workshops from yoga to dance, immersive presentations and talks. Worldly crafts, organic food, entertainment and interactive art will be scattered throughout the grounds, and deluxe camping is available for those who prefer exquisite comfort. Instead of attendees having to rough it, a wellness oasis with hot showers, a sauna set inside a vintage Airstream and a spa will provide an assortment of treatments in the Alchemy Village.

With diversity, consciousness and impeccable curation, Symbiosis defines itself as a community, rather than a festival. Creators, artists and likeminded individuals will come together next week, to inspire optimal well-being, and harmonious symbiosis. So if you haven’t already, get your passes, pack your bags and prepare yourself for what is bound to be a legendary journey, and a most epic conclusion to summer 2015.
