Taking place in the beautiful boreal wilderness of Northern Alberta, the intimate and majestic Astral Harvest Festival steps it up a notch by ensuring there is something for everyone. The nestled gathering has garnered a dedicated following and become a staple of the Canadian electronic music scene with its unique combination of music, art, yoga, movement, and learning experiences.
With Astral Harvest rapidly approaching, the festival has come forth with their stunning final lineup that will bring together artists of all different kinds for one unforgettable weekend. Guests will have the chance to witness sounds from Dirtybird duo Walker & Royce, Sam Binga, Sabo, and BIJOU.
It is an all-ages festival with activities running from day time and 5 unique stages will keep revellers rocking well into the night. The days are greeted with beautiful morning music to gently wake the dancing feet at the Market Stage. Acoustic music infiltrates the afternoons, offering Astralites an intimate exchange between live musicians and their audience. Evenings at Market Stage are all about the “groove” from a variety of genres in electronic music, providing you with a happy medium between the high-energy and the down-tempo sounds of the other stages.
Within thefestival walls, memories are made; enhanced by the uncompromising sound system in The Manor Stage area. The Manor houses daytime, beach party vibes, then transforms into a raw, edgy, dance floor, when the sun goes down.
Anything but normal, catching some comedy at the new and improved Basket LIVE stage provides laughs and positive energy.
