I wanted to begin collecting some of the more psychedelicly-focused festivals and events around the world. I met someone in my travels last weekend who recommended the Priceless Festival in Belden Town, northern California, an annual three day event in early July.
They have annual themes like Binary Ball, 70s Prom, Space Odyssey and Mad Hatter’s Teaparty. It is a small festival on a river, maxing at 1150 folks. It is family friendly, volunteer run and a registered non-profit, so money-making is not a primary focus. There are workshops in microscopic landscapes, parkour, bad temporary tattoos, neurohacking, local bird songs and more. They have art and music with four stages plus “wandering minstrels”.
Tickets are sliding scale, beginning around $270 plus an optional meal plan. They do sell out quickly, but volunteering could get you in!
The name of the event was meant to remind campers that you can’t put a price on the value of a weekend in the woods relaxing and dancing with your friends.Priceless festival website
