Bhakti Fest is a conscious gathering of yoga and sacred music in Joshua Tree, CA! The 4-day event (September 8-11, 2016) offers non-stop music on two stages, 108 workshops and 72 yoga classes. Bhakti Fest features world-renowned teachers and artists, including Krishna das Jai Uttal, MC Yoga, Shiva Rea, and many more!
Bhakti Fest is the premier yoga, sacred music, and personal growth festival in the United States. Since 2009, for six days each September, we have featured the best yoga teachers, Kirtan musicians, and workshop leaders in the world. We are part of the Center for Spiritual Studies, a 501c3 nonprofit that supports charities across the globe, mainly in India. Proceeds generated each year, after we cover our costs, go to our chosen causes. We accept donations to help us provide extraordinary festivals and give support to those less fortunate than us.
Bhakti Fest celebrates the devotional paths of yoga, Kirtan (sacred music), and meditation. Our festival is a drug and alcohol free vehicle for evolution of human consciousness through a heart-centered revolution. Bring your yoga mats this September to the idyllic Joshua Tree Retreat Center, located in the beautiful region east of Los Angeles. Practice with the best yoga teachers in the world, dance to sacred music by world-renown Kirtan artists, and take workshops with leaders in the field of personal growth. Camp out beneath the stars or stay at one of our many accommodations on and offsite; enjoy the swimming pool and free filtered drinking water; stop in at The Bhakti Family Village and expose your children to other enlightened youth and families; enjoy the best vegetarian food at any festival. We offer student, senior, military and local resident discounts. We are building community—please join us!
New in 2016: A women’s dome and men’s lodge have gender specific workshops, plus sound baths will extend into the evening under the stars! Bhakti Fest is a vegetarian/vegan family friendly event that is alcohol and drug free!
