For the conscious festival-goers of the world, Envision Festival is one of those events anticipate each year. For those who haven't been but share a love of the festival world's progressive initiatives, you're probably familiar with Envision's efforts to enrich the human experience through a four-day event focused on offerings steeped in shared values. Thousands of people gather in the jungles of Costa Rica each February (for the last seven, to be exact) to revel in those shared values, and this fresh new aftermovie gives us all a taste of what's in store for 2018.

Envision is a remarkable festival. Yes, there's music (Autograf, OPIUO, Pantyraid, Papadosio, Goldfish, Blond:ish and Acid Pauli were just a few of the 2017 headliners), but that's just the beginning. This electrifying aftermovie trains the focus on the 2018 experience by giving us a glimpse of their eight pillars: Art, Community, Health, Education, Movement, Eco-Building, Permaculture, and Spirituality.

“The eight pillars are designed first as a deep reflection of who we as the Envision founders are, and second what Envision is as an organization," says co-founder Stephen Brooks. "We are here living in harmony with nature in Costa Rica and these pillars do not just define the festival, but the lives we strive to lead year round...All of the pillars merged together creates a feeling. What Envision seeks to offer is a balanced option of what we value most.. It’s not a music festival, or a yoga festival, or a surf camp or an educational conference, but it is all of those things."

In exploring all or even just some of these eight pillars, t hose who make the Envision journey may just find themselves with a new perspective on the human experience.

Envision Festival 2018 will take place February 21-25, 2018 in Santo Domingo, Costa Rica.
