The definition of “euphoria” is a feeling of happiness, confidence, or well-being; Euphoria Festival in Austin, Texas is creating an all-encompassing euphoric experience at Carson Creek ranch on April 25th & 26th by integrating music and art, yoga and workshops, as well as imagination and innovation. This year marks the 3rd installation of Euphoria festival, but 2014’s new and improved edition is jam-packed with enthralling extras and stimulating surprises.
Phase one of the eargasmically eclectic lineup dropped last month, and phase two is set to drop next week. Both the live and DJ talent on this year’s bill is admirable to the seasoned festival goer, as phase 1 includes the likes of Lotus, Beats Antique, Zeds Dead, Bonobo, Gareth Emery, Boombox, Sunsquabi, The Motet, KOAN Sound, The Floozies, Eminence Ensemble, D.V.S, Late Night Radio, Bro Safari and many more impressive names in the festival scene. That’s just part one, so brace yourself for the surprises of part two.
The two-day, two-night festival is also including a camping option for the first time at its new open-sky venue along the Colorado River, known as Carson Creek Ranch. The venue is located just moments from the heart of Austin, Texas in a location that is removed enough to feel exotic, yet close enough to capture the magic of the proclaimed “live music capital of the world”. The main-stage is mapped out to be directly in front of the Austin skyline, which is destined to create an unforgettable live music experience.
More than just your average rave, Euphoria Festival will be a treat for the ears, eyes and soul this year. The full euphoric experience offers art installations, as well as yoga and transformational workshops. Euphoria’s “Fairland” is the upcoming festival’s big-kid playground, which will be located in the middle of the venue’s spacious wooded area that overlooks the scenic Colorado River. Fairyland will be the Alloveus Art Gallery’s home, set to showcase kaleidoscopic art pieces from leading visionary artists of the infamous Third Coast Visions artist collective. The festival workshops will also take place in Fairyland throughout the days.
Resembling its elder Electric Forest Festival in Michigan, Euphoria Festival builds the bridge between whomp and jam, fun and well-being, as well as exploration and relaxation in Austin for the first time.
