“A playful exercise in the art of living and being co-creators in our own experience.”
Sunscape is a 3 day mystical event full of creative performances, music and self expression. It’s off the beaten track of festivals, and therefore I’d get it before it’s hot – so to speak, as this intimate set up, location and group of eccentric festival goers from around the globe is what makes it so special. The location of this magical and spiritual festival is its initial influential factor, encouraging everyone to get in touch with your bohemian side, getting to enjoy and experience the event together. Gozo is a small island off Malta in the exotic Mediterranean, with only about 30,000 inhabitants. Its characteristics are rural and rugged and the serene silence creates an overwhelming sense of relaxation and comfort – perfect for a weekend of festival fun!
The island is long linked to Ogygia, home to Calypso from Holmers Odyssey. It is home to crystal caves, and megalithic temples that are said to be one of the oldest structures in the world. When you consider the significance of this small Mediterranean Island, historically and spiritually, it certainly adds to effect when you’re dancing the night away under the stars on the soft sandy beach of Ramla Bay.
Camping by the beach makes for a relaxing day of sun and water sports as well as food, workshops and stalls to keep you busy before the sun goes down and the speakers turn up. Get active in the beautiful outdoors and forge friendships with people from all over the world. With people connecting over a fusion of music and art, it’s a place to relax and let go while the rest of the world continues. There is a vast musical array of stages from reggae, to drum and base, techno and jazz – truly something for everyone to enjoy.
It definitely was one of my favourite festivals, all things considered – music, location, price, set up and people. I will most certainly be escaping to Sunscape Festival again!
