Sunscape Festival, Gozo
Are you in the mood to party? Then, the Sunscape Festival is surely the place for you!
The 3rd edition of this amazing holistic event will be starting off on Friday 22nd July and this year promises to be truly memorable. This year’s overall theme for the festival will be ‘Sustainability’ and the focus will be on the different ways we, as individuals, can make a difference.

Featuring more than 50 local and international acts performing across 4 stages, this weekend beach festival will surely be an experience to remember.
During the day, festival-goers will be able to chill out with activities centred around the Transformation Area and the Holistic Area. These will be hosted in the Satori Fields, amidst giant sunflowers and of course, very near the sea for those who, instead, prefer to swim and practice water-sports.

Face-painting, body-painting, tarot reading, different types of yoga, as well as pilates will be the order of the day. There will also be workshops on art and design, digital photography, singing and song-writing, astrology, astronomy, and tantra, amongst others.
