The Sun is the center of our solar system and this stage features a central thread of the international psychedelic underground, a fitting way to start the roll-out of our 2017 artists. Many of the artists here are familiar to attendees of our international partners Hadra, Noisily, Ometeotl, Origin, Rainbow Serpent, Re:birth festival and of course your host festival Symbiosis Gathering.

While underground psychedelic music has been incrementally gaining momentum in the States, its been a powerful unifier of the multi-lingual and multi-cultural underground for many years, and a key component to our Gatherings.

Symbiosis has long been a supporter of this international movement. Since 2009, we have successfully petitioned over psychedelic 30 artists to come to the US for the first time. Many of these acts first looked at us like crazy americans with a big vision and holes in our head. Today, we are honored to call many friends and collaborators and Symbiosis is globally recognized as torchbearers of the psychedelic scene.
This will be the largest concentration of such music ever in the US. Now is not the time to be attached to nationalism nor cling to safety nets. Join us in the spaceship and let’s ride because this shiz is going to be COSMIC!
