Festival Memo

Location, arrival, camping



Magic Yard

Just say a magic word!

The special theme of this year festival needs special spaces that‘s why MAGIC YARD will be opened and between old oaks and mounds the secrets of wizardry will be revealed.

Herb healers, people with traditional witchery and incantation knowledge, wizards, shamans and astrologists will be waiting there for you. There, you will be able to encounter different kinds of magic, hear interesting stories and lectures. You’ll be given a chance to walk with wolves and take part in various shamanic or Baltic rites, try casting herbal lots or find balance and inner harmony inside yourself. Find the space that calls you and immerse yourself in their magic.
