Costa Rica’s lavishing Envision Festival has announced its 2019 music lineup for the ninth edition of this community built 4-day music and arts festival. The 4-day extravaganza will be take place in the beautiful village of Uvita on February 28th - March 3rd in a gorgeous ocean adjacent jungle in paradise.
Envision is committed to produce diverse lineups each year as the festival continues to grow and expand its horizons both as a community and music event. The festival draws colossal headliners with house and bass music sensations that could easily qualify as ‘legends in the making’, but taken as a whole, this year’s lineup peers even further into the future with artists intentionally selected to awaken the self to a higher consciousness in alignment with the natural harmony; all on three internationally acclaimed, flame-throwing, projection mapped dance music stages built by world-class sculptors and fabricators in collaboration with local Ticos.
“Coming into our 9th edition, we really wanted to step up our game. We created a diverse and extremely strong gathering of well-established international artists and local emerging talents. Without a shadow of a doubt, we are proud to announce the best lineup in the history of Envision!” Josh Wendel, Envision Festival Founder said of the announcement. “The creative and conceptual process behind our stages is another core element of our production and identity. We create a 360-degree sensorial experience not only through high class music, but also intricate visuals and captivating performances. The unbreakable bond between some of the most talented woodcrafters and local bamboo builders is reflected in all our creations, and we're honored to share the love and the care behind our designs. Each stage will be an entirely new build this year, and we can’t wait to share them with you!”
Envision Festival is locally crafted to deliver a new, holistic spin on the conventional music listening experience. The 2019 lineup is craftily created with top elite artists and legends from bass, latin, house, and techno like Australian sacred bass specialist Deya Dova and Denver-based climate activist Xiuhtezcatl emphasize vision found in the 8 pillars of the event. Featured headliners consist of like the Hawaiian hybrid, Trevor Hall, continue a tradition of flavorful folk, reggae and roots. Electro funk pioneers, The Floozies, and San Francisco’s Tycho, with a smooth psychedelic ambiance alongside the dark house beats from Bedouin, for a delightful combination of sweet and savory that is seldom experienced in the jungle. Next, Envision delivers the sounds of Burning Man, with timeless legend of Robot Heart and ‘All Day I Dream’ leader, Lee Burridge alongside the latin house fusion aficionado fresh off the Mayan Warrior, Nicola Cruz. Then the globally recognized dance music legend Sabo with a tropical flair. CloZee makes her 4th appearance at the festival, both as a fan favorite and as France’s most valued export in kundalini-blasting bass music. Viken Arman, will draw on roots in classical, jazz and ancient rhythms. Finally for phase 1 announcement, Envision looks forward to introducing Detroit original and soul funk marvel Grant Kwiecinski for a must-not-miss debut performance of GRiZ on the Luna Stage. As a haven to bass-lovers and the most advanced display of pyrotechnics among our three masterfully crafted stages, the Luna Stage is a monument to the staggering ingenuity of our teams and the endless creativity of the (almost) all girl build crew at the Reliquarium.
