Andrew Ecker Leads a 50 person Open Drum Circle

Upon entering, the founder and visionary of the Neotribal Gathering who has also performed in major festivals such as Symbiosis and Lucidity, will lead a 50 person drum for you to join in on!

(First come first serve)



Live Music + Drumming = Let The Dancing Begin! 

With the warming sun directly overhead, Paulina Milligan will take the lead helping you break out of your comfort zones with ecstatic dance at the pace of the communal beat.

Yes expect bubbles 😉

(USE THIS PHOTI) Eeyores Birthday Party celebrated 50 years as hundreds gathered in Pease Park for an afternoon of festivities that included music, food and dancing. For festival goers the ever-present drum circle is a yearly attraction as the beat continues uninterrupted for hours as dancers come and go. Marina Thomas has been coming to Eeyores since her father brought her as a child as dancing in the drum circle as her friend Jesscia Peel, left, showers her with bubbles.
