Music and Activities at Hadra Trance Festival
There is so much to do at Hadra Trance Festival, where do we begin? To start, there are two stages at this festival. One is the Main Stage, where DJ and live sets will blast progressive psy, dark psy, Goa and much more day-in and day-out! The Alternative Stage is the place to go if you need a bit of a break from the fast tempo, throbbing sounds of psytrance. There you will find ambient-chill, dub, retro-progressive and tons more DJs and live sets!
But, psytrance music festivals aren’t all about the music – oddly enough! At Hadra Trance Festival there is such an abundance of things to do, make sure you have the time (and save your energy) to see it all! From workshops to performances, from food stalls to arts and crafts there’s a little bit of everything, for everyone!
At HTF you can go to a meditation workshop and then take a leisurely stroll over to the Psychedelic Art Gallery to view some of the beautiful and awe-inspiring creations put together by Collider Art. If you’re in the mood to sit back and relax, check out any one of the juggling or dance performances. Once you’ve had your fill of shows and art, go grab something to eat at one of the many food stalls and while you’re digesting, take a look at the beautiful and unique arts and crafts by local and international artisans.
