OZORA Festival returns once again to light up the midsummer horizon with its week long celebration of Psychedelic Music, Art and Culture.  The manifold expressions of this aspect of neo global peace culture reveal themselves in a wide range of musical spaces including Psytrance, Ethnodelic Ambience, Digital Dub, Minimal Techno and Live Performances from artists across the globe which make this a melting pot of a future perfect state.

The incredible line-up of new and established artists across the global psychedelic scene make this a highlight of the annual trance calendar and 40,000 beautiful people will gather to dance and trance through the days and nights, opening up to natural rhythms merging with new musical expressions and allowing the Solar and Lunar rotations to become their guide.

Ashirvad @ Ozora Festival 2013 - Sangita Sounds

In light of last year’s 10th festival held in Ozora, in light of the mysticism of the year 2012 and the newest one that follows the end of the world, in light of all that has enriched us with an Ozora experience, we still have only one thing in mind. Respecting and nurturing the valued traditions, treasures, for free spirits, paradise on earth, our fairy tale. A playground where we learn to share and care, to express, connect , unify, beautify the world around us, in us. A universe of openness, togetherness, reaching out to cosmic energies, to nature, to wholeness through dance, trance, creation, invention, transformation and peace.
