Sonica Festival 2014

www.sonica-festival.eu sangita soundsSonica Festival of contemporary Music, Arts and Culture will once again play host to a world class line up of DJs, Producers and Musicians in the lush setting of the Dukes Forest near Naples, Italy.  The Sangita Sounds cosmic musical family will be in full effect, with Darren Sangita (Ashirvad), Jon Sangita (Sonasha) and Greg Hunter (Dubsahara) all being invited to play on the Gaia Alternative stage in the chillout village.

Heres the official website and some thoughts from the organisers…


The Sonica Festival delivers you a new multicultural experience through music, art and peace. As a tool for increasing a common ecofriendly consciousness, Sonica aims to realize an international creative network crossing all different paradigms including visual art, performance and electronic music, together with their own ethic parallel contents such as wellness, meditation, nutrition, holistic therapies, alchemy, cosmology, quantum physics, environmental sustainability, green technologies and human design.

According to this vision, Sonica would like to represent a new spiritual gateway for the universal shift post 2012; a behavioral pattern’s upgrade for applying new ideas and new models of interaction able to overcome the social collapse reached by the information technology era. To achieve this goal Sonica would like to become a junction point for different realities, where the collective participation leads to peaceful comparisons in order to share both transcultural values and the general interests growing behind productions, creations, exhibitions and every kind of artistic expression.
