Echoes from Agartha is a musical, travel and cultural getaway like no other to an ancient land in the heart of Anatolia, Turkey.
It has a crowd from all over the world, and plays out July 26th – 31st with next level production and spellbinding locations for dancing.
Here are some reasons you cannot miss it.
Echoes from Agartha happens in the so-called Cradle of Civilization in Cappadocia which is in the heart of Anatolia, Turkey. The place was formed 60 million years ago by the erosion of soft layers of lava and ash from Mount Erciyes which makes it a hugely dramatic landscape steeped in history and nature like you have never experienced before.
This year you can dance in a 1200 year old Caravansary from the Seljuks Empire. A caravanserai was a roadside inn where travellers could rest and recover from the day’s journey. Caravanserais supported the flow of commerce, information and people across the network of trade routes covering Asia, North Africa and Southeast Europe, most notably the Silk Road.
The Zion is inspired by the Matrix and located in a narrow canyon with tall rock formations that hug the dance floor, creating a cave-like illusion. The Valley of Monasteries is a valley surrounded by ancient monasteries and fairy chimneys dating back to the 4th century and The Yunak Evleri, a rooftop venue that hosts a special sunset party.
People are open minded and friendly, dressed in local costumes, capes and jewellery. They head to this festival not just to go wild, but to enjoy unique musical experiences in unique locations under an epic sky which is either a clear blue and baked in sun or a dramatic burnt orange and red when the sun rises and sets.
There is a rich array of activities and adventures to have at Echoes including horseback riding, open air museum visits, classy dinner parties, traditional Turkish arts workshops, cave exploration and hot air balloon rides.
