Bhakti Festival 2018

6 Days of Bliss (Sept 12-17)

A Transformational Experience of a Lifetime!

Bhakti Festival offers music on two stages, plus a wide variety of yoga, breathwork, sound healing, wellness workshops and activities.

BHAKTI FEST is a multi-day music festival celebrating devotion through chanting, yoga, meditation, and community. All of our presenters embody the spirit of Bhakti - deep devotion. We gather to express our love and devotion as one community through an enchanting array of activities. This family friendly, drug & alcohol free event and the programs are accessible to all, new or seasoned. What ever your needs are in a truly transformational festival, you can find them here.

There are hundreds of activities to explore, along with the thousands of loving beings present throughout the festival. There is a level of equilibrium here that is rare on all levels. Prepare to be in moments of pure bliss as you navigate through the Bhav. 

The workshops will assist in your internal development, along with flowing into dynamic play with others. The music will lift you to spirit and ground down to earth with the top Kirtan artists, ready to bring you to places you’ve never dreamt of. Get ready for some of the most exciting yoga classes you have ever practiced in. Kirtan flows through many workshops, yoga classes, music jams, an even a Kirtan School. The landscape is simply awe inspiring, surrounded by desert, mountains, joshua trees, and other natural spectacles. Just walking around will bring you serenity and captivation, even if you don’t want to attend any of the activities, which I doubt you could hold back on. Walking around the festival will bring you to various altars, a labyrinth, sculptures, medicine wheel, and spontaneous pop-up activities under the sun or stars.

Festival passes includes everything, except our pre and post Festival Intensives. These intensives take place on Wednesday September 12 and Monday September 17th and require a separate ticket. 

Children under age 13 are free.  Our Bhakti Fest Kid Land is chalk full of fun family friendly activities! Senior, local and veteran discounts are also available.

Accommodations include camping, RV camping, on-site housing and local hotels.

Fanna-Fi-Allah & Sufi Qawwali at Bhakti Fest 2017

An extraordinary performance by Fanna-Fi-Allah with Sufi Qawwali at Bhakti Fest West 2017. "Traditional Sufi music is a powerful celebration of the Beloved. The wisdom and vibrancy of Sufi culture is profoundly heard and felt in their 10 albums and recent documentary "Music of the Mystics," as well as this soul-stirring live performance."Video by David Jason Ziemba

Come this year and jump into a unqie environment you won't soon forget. There are so many stories to tell but we will let the pictures offer a glimpse into the Bhav.
