Not satisfied with the traditional festival mission of getting off your nut, there is a new wave of event which claims to transform your body and soul. VICE’s Amelia Dimoldenberg is invited deep into the jungles of Costa Rica to attend Envision Festival, on a quest to rid herself of her chronic awkwardness and open her third eye through bitcoin conferences, Buddhist drum circles and vaginal eggs. Get ready to laugh (or cringe) because sometimes, when your Yoni Egg doesn’t do the trick, laughter is the best medicine.
Fortunately, VICE knows how to lovingly poke fun, and laughing at oneself is a very necessary part of surviving this so called life. Unfortunately, the depiction in this special is not completely accurate in highlighting the average Envision Festival experience. As much entertainment as we like to enjoy, we pride ourselves on curating one-of-a-kind festival content and programming so that all of our tribe members can walk away with new skills and tools to navigate life back home.
Choosing to do that internal work both personally, and within our communities, takes grit every single day. It takes resilience and conviction in all of our decisions and human interactions. Come to Envision to learn, play, and have fun, and leave a more enlightened human being. The opportunity is there if you make the most of it, and we’ll be cheering you on every step of the way.
We take sound sound seriously. The dance floor is our temple. With each stage a sculptural masterpiece and Funktion-One sound system sending chills through your body, we spend the entire year masterfully crafting an all-night jungle beach celebration you'll never forget.
