Festivals - The Bloom Series

The emergent festival culture has discovered an alchemical formula for transformation
through the co-creation of an immersive participant-driven reality, which combines
the ecstatic ritual provided by electronic dance music with visionary art &
performance, workshop curriculums in the new paradigm, a social economy of artisans
& vendors, and the honoring of sacred space and ceremony in a natural, outdoor setting.

Out of approximately 90 Transformational Festivals and growing annually, THE BLOOM
visits 24 of them to document the profound magic at play and illuminate the recurring
themes in this alchemical process.
