In its second year, Hang Loose Festival is a one of a kind, inclusive, wholistic gathering of music and human loving humans.
This year Kabeção will be teaching a 4 day immersion for 20 lucky participants before the main event from the 9th-13th.
This event will be Pantam centered but elegantly woven with the strong concept of sound as medicine.There will also be offerings supporting and cultivating the body/mind/spirit connection . We are so very happy to be creating this space for Yoga, Bodywork Therapies, Sound Healing, Ritual, and Being with Nature. We will be enjoying local vegan cuisine and a true deep dive into the Magic of the Island.
The deepest intention for “Hang Loose” festival is for our collective group of sound alchemists, artist & creative beings around the world to come together & share their love for sound. Across time and space, in so many cultures, sound is actively integrated into ceremonies throughout the world. Civilizations and Sacred Sites are built with and around the concept and calling of sound as spirit. We celebrate these moments in time to give beings space to come together with sound sculptures and voices for healing purposes. May we feel deeper, breathe longer, & ultimately be more aware of all the wonderful moments we can share in peaceful places within nature. This gathering is a calling, not for performance but more so for prayer and reflection. Our collective vision is activating our sense organs in order to feel more of one another in different ways. We will resonate and relish in sound, song, silence and the sacred elements. In this way we Dream the Dream into existence.
The location of Hang Loose is a sacred site nestled deep on North Shore of Maui. It is a private estate only a short distance from powerful waves & waterfalls. The space is ripe for connection and close enough to explore so many wonders of the isle. The details & actual address will be disclosed as we receive full non-refundable payment to secure each person’s entry. Entry will include for everyone the opportunity to enjoy the Aina (land, fresh vegan based meals and incredible line-up of amazing artists, sounders, creatives and friends.
The nearest airport is Kahului and is about a 30 minute drive.
There is space for about half of the participants to camp on the land and many hotels, air bnb’s and spaces to rent for the weekend.
We will be offering as much guidance as we can in finding wonderful spaces for those who are not up for the rustic camping experience.
