Welcome to Eden Festival. Take a bimble to Furry Chillum, head outside for a dance in Devorgilla and pay homage at Voltans Psychedelic Temple, finishing up at Rabbies Tavern for a wee nightcap. An eclectic mix of experiences to say the least.
Set across 9 stages, Eden hosts an eclectic mix of sounds and environments, from auld celtic drinkin’ dens to psychedelic tropical dance tents to circus styled brass and ska cocktail bars to Indian wedding marquees filled with hammocks, bath tubs and chai cafes.
If you're feeling a bit overwhelmed at the very thought of all those combined activities, that's totally understandable, it's quite the sensory overload. Maybe just park yourself at the Healing Field to indulge in some restorative Crystal Therapy, Craniosacral Therapy or Eden Energy Medicine (sounds a little bit illegal but we're assured it's not).
Fed up of wading through plastic cups at festivals? Not so at Eden. Get yourself a reusable cup for £2 and simply get it re-filled throughout the festival, return it at the end to get your money back!
