10 years of Growth, Evolution and Community

Our Story

We are a festival | We are a celebration | We are a message | We are a movement
We are a concept of utopia; an example of a solution for the change this world desperately needs. Envision is an invitation; to awaken, to connect, to learn, and to inspire. In true collaboration with one another, together we Envision a new future.

About Us

Envision's mission is to create an eye-opening experience that turns us onto a new form of living; a new way to be inspired. To provide tools that can be integrated into the life we are already living or to inspire a complete shift in our life path. The connection to nature can be felt in every aspect of Envision and the ripple effect of what people then take away from the festival is much more potent than just a good party.

SUSTAINABILITY

We promote regenerative solutions that inspire guests to integrate sustainable practices into their own lives. There is no finish line on the road to sustainability; it is our responsibility to consider the impact of each step we take.

MUSIC

We deliver cutting edge music that blends genres and creates a positive and interactive dance floor experience. Our focus is to remove borders and genre limitations; to open hearts and expand minds.

SPIRITUALITY

We acknowledge the interconnectedness of all beings and all things. We create a safe space to share knowledge and ideas that inspire the awakening and expansion of consciousness without being dogmatic or exclusive.

MOVEMENT

Through the practice of yoga, dance, and sacred movement, we reinforce the connection of mind, body and spirit while building community and connection. We believe these experiences directly empower action and activism.

HEALTH

We promote conversation about how best to apply modern and ancient practices, to heal ourselves, while prioritizing the sustainability of the planet.

ART

Living is an art form. At Envision we curate a 360 degree immersive art environment that blends the edges of the canvas with the world around it. Through art, we inspire and promote radical self-expression in harmony with nature.

EDUCATION

We invite thought-leaders and change-makers in each of our pillars, promoting holistic education in order to inspire each and every one of us to create the world we envision. We all have room to grow and approach education with humility.

A Greener Festival Award

AGF Assessor Summary: “Envision Festival has excelled in terms of Local Community Impacts, Management Systems and External Reach and Behavioural Change [...] The Eco-Hub, the volunteers and the Sustainable Dish program worked together to keep the site incredibly clean at all times. The tree planting ceremony and the beach clean-up are such terrific ways of enhancing the local ecosystem [...] The procurement policies were admirable, with the vast majority of all consumables obtained fairly and sustainably from the local community, and emphasis on "Maker to Consumer". The impact that that festival has had on the municipality with regard to upgrading the water infrastructure and educating them in safe event systems was excellent. The Envision management team are thinking and acting in many ways to become fully sustainable and Earth Positive.”
