Envision Festival 2015

Envision Yourself Here

Envision festival is a transformational gathering that embodies much more than the average festival. Combining the traveling experience of Costa Rica’s tropical paradise with the infectious energy of the festival itself, there could not be a better platform for creativity and artistic expansion. The sold out event hosted about 6,000 attendees from all across the globe. Nestled in the coastal jungle of Uvita, the venue included both jungle and beach front scenery. Bamboo structures poked out from the trees providing climbing platforms and elevated viewing areas. Whether it was the mind-blowing decor of the festival or the relaxing sunrise and sunsets on the beach, Envision offered elements of both exploration and serenity.


With deep roots in the permaculture movement, Envision’s main theme was environmental education. Thoroughly sorted garbage/recycle bins and compostable restrooms are a few examples. Before the festival kicked off, the Polish Ambassador hosted a day of permaculture action at nearby schools, planting fruit trees and discussing environmental initiatives with the local community. There was a large effort throughout the event to raise environmental awareness and introduce attendees to the importance of sustainability.


Each morning started with an awakening meditation session, as all the day’s workshops began to setup. From slack-lining to power yoga, Envision’s daytime activities offered something for everyone. Children with painted faces played imaginary games and interacted with art installations. Groups gathered under the trees for workshops and yoga infused dance. Although temperatures were high during the day, the beach was a quick stroll through the lush jungle.


As the sun began to set, throngs of people made their way to the beach to witness the beauty of the multi colored sky-scape and bid farewell to the day. There was a playful atmosphere of people stretching, hooping and swimming that uplifted your spirits and provided a second wind for the night to come. As darkness fell, people made their way back inside the festival to discover the new ambiance of the night.

The highlight of the nightlife was the Luna Stage. The stage design created a lasting memory; a 30ft panther made of driftwood, backed by video mapped visualizers and pyrotechnics. Discrete lighting illuminated the bamboo structures and palm trees as lasers cut their way through the canopy above. One of the best parts of the night’s entertainment was the impressive performing artists that danced, hooped and spun fire stage-side. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, the next elaborate act would take stage and prove you wrong. If you ever needed a break from the big stages and crowds, smaller acts played more mellow tunes in the Village. Whether you came to see your favorite headliners or simply expand your musical palette, there seemed to be something for everyone.


Envision Festival is an unforgettable experience for travelers and festival enthusiasts alike; making the venture to Costa Rica and immerging themselves in the exotic unknown.
