If you’re on Vancouver Island, or in the market to travel for a festival experience, you may want to look into Atmosphere Gathering. On August 19-21 in Cumberland, BC, be one of 1,500 lucky people to experience this intimate gathering of music, art, and workshops. That’s right, only 1,500 tickets will be sold intentionally to keep the vibe extra chill. Early Bird passes have already sold out, but the next tiers are now on sale for $140-180 CAD. Each individual (not group) must get a camping pass, and those will run you $30-40 CAD. Not too shabby for three days!
Now what about that lineup? The first wave of Atmosphere Gathering’s lineup has been released, and this is only the beginning. Check it out below, and let us know what you think!

According to Ben Howells, co-creator of the Atmosphere Gathering, “We’re looking forward to adding more circus arts and live performance to our dance party than ever before.” So be careful of any stilt walkers or fire dancers that may cross your path.
