This year, the festival will join forces will NYC-based group meditation movement The Big Quiet to attempt the largest mass meditation at a music festival in the United States. Singers and violinists from different bands will join together with the shared mission of helping the crowd turn their focus inward.
As mbg reported last year, more and more wellness devotees are now looking to sound to find quiet. Music has been used as a healing tool for centuries, but sound baths have resurfaced as the ultimate antidote to tech addictions of today. Much like a yoga class or Reiki session, sound baths are an opportunity to leave your phone at the door and connect to the energy of your surroundings and yourself without distraction.
