Our mission is two-fold.
Firstly and very importantly to us. Is to give those in recovery a vehicle to mix with others in a large social setting. Recovery, very often causes a sense of isolation and our festival changes all this. No longer the only person at the event sober – everyone else is like and understands you.
Secondly, as the conscious clubbing and sober raving phenomenon is on the increase globally. We want we provide a platform. A get together in the form of a festival. That will help nurture this new movement, by bringing together all people who wish to party sober.
Our long term is to bring the Sober Fest out into the wider community. We wish to give all conscious clubbers and those in recovery, an amazing experience to remember. The Sober Fest 2019 aims to deliver an intimate and friendly festival that includes an eclectic mix of music, ecstatic dance, workshops and vegan/vegetarian food.
Respect (environment, human, tolerance, social conscience)
The festival’s main focus is “Sobriety” and having a great time with other like minded people. We want to build a community that can identify with each other through world music, ecstatic dance, spiritualism and vegan/vegetarian food. We want the event to be known for its warm and festive atmosphere. We want to promote the human side of the festival with a sense of respect, sharing, special encounters and shared moments, between all in the great outdoors.
