Coolest Floating Art at Symbiosis Gathering

Published

on

Cool off in California this September at the Symbiosis Gathering, where the creative community comes together to celebrate the end of summer with monumental art installations, performances and dance music, and of course, art boats and art floats!

This year, the lineup includes Gramatik, Santigold and Warpaint, which you can listen to while floating in scenic Woodward Reservoir. The Swimbiosis Stage even features specially designed structures so revelers can lounge in giant hammock-type lounges while dangling their feet in the water and listening to world-class DJs like Darshan, Oneness and Jstar. Designed by Metatrone Tribe, these structures have been used at festivals all over the world.

An eco-friendly festival, Symbiosis includes no corporate sponsorships, no sales of beer or liquor and only organic, vegetarian food. The best of counterculture arts and crafts are on display, including amazing live painting and opportunities for attendees to co-create and interact with sculptures, impromptu theater and trippy art pieces.

Check out these creative art boats and floats from last year’s Symbiosis Gathering, and get your ticket for this year soon!
