Restival, a visionary fusion sitting somewhere between a retreat and a festival, is launching this November in the Sahara Desert, Morocco.
Thi new experience runs from 14-20 November 2015 and invites people to find the space and creativity to re-charge and re-connect with their inner landscape, whilst sharing cultural and creative experiences with a new and modern 'tribe'. Experiential producer and Restival founder Caroline Jones says: “I had the desire to create an experience where people can open up, share and disconnect from the technological and societal pressures of our globalised world. Restival was grounded in repeated requests from friends in the media to create an anti-festival.
Appealing to adventurous spirits, Restival is a space in the Sahara where individuals can find the freedom to explore and unwind, guided by some very cool contributors such as Morning Gloryville, Ripe and Ready, Seymour Space Paris and artist Boris Hoppek, amongst others. Designers, Printed Pattern People, are creating a unique Capsule Collection for Restival which will also be available to buy online; and C’est Ethica are creating a “Nomad Travel Pouch” filled with eco products specially for the event.
The programme will include a mix of art and writing workshops, music from local tribes, astronomy, story telling, morning raves, biodynamic
transformational dance with Heart Core, yoga, meditation and mindfulness, creative discovery, a film night and tour to the find the nomads in the desert.
Restival will take place at eco-lux Camp Adounia, set in the majestic dunes of the Sahara Desert. Access from Marrakech is by 4x4s winding through the Atlas mountains, via the Tizi-n-Tichka pass and the UNESCO world heritage site, the ksar of Ait Ben Haddou, descending along the Draa Valley into the desert camp. Prices start from £1000 per person for 5 nights all-inclusive based on sharing a tent. Return flights are not included.
