AYATA FESTIVAL

THEME

Turkish mythology meets an electronic underground of visionary music – paying homage to the spirit of ancient civilizations of Central Anatolia. Explored by archeologists, historians and anthropologists – it’s a region where shamanism and Tangrism is a practice that is continued even today.

Inspired by this fascinating history, culture and mythology, the Ayata Festival narrates the story of the Moon God (Ay Ata), who lived with his Sun Goddess (Gun Ana) on the sixth floor of the skies.

Since ancient times, Turkish people of the region have believed in the secret lunar powers of all human beings. The moon itself is a magical guide – each passing phase significant and relevant to a specific phase of life: from ‘new’ born child and ‘full’ mature adult – to the ‘waning’ of the aged until the point of the ‘black moon,’ when life meets death. The spirit behind this mythology ignites a deeper understanding of the Samadhi that is already embodied within us.

Following in the footsteps of our ancestors, Ayata Festival is inspired by our search for the divine spirit in the skies; to reach a universal state of mind that unites local music, art, performance and culture with the pulse of the psychedelic music scene. So as we welcome a global roster of producers, DJs and visual artists, we celebrate our shamanic roots that have grown and evolved from Middle Asia to Anatolia.

We will gather at the highest peak of Southern Turkey, in the region of Muğla, where ancient civilizations walked with the spirit of the Moon God and the Sun Goddess... We will climb 2,294 metres above sea level to the heights of the Sandras Mountain, with its fairytale trees, wild flowers and emerald waters of the Gokceova Lake – this is a sacred paradise revealing the mysical side of Mother Nature.

Join us for this natural symphony... Feel enlightened by the energy of this fascinating landscape; invoke higher realms of consciousness and be inspired by the history, knowledge and culture that it holds...
