Returning to the tantalizing and tranquil town of Tidewater, Oregon - the 9th Annual Beloved Festival is set to bloom once again this August, from the 12th through the 15th. For four days and nights, loyal fans and festivalgoers will experience a vast array of talented artists, musicians, workshops and presentations set to enhance their mind, body and soul. Tucked into the coastal forest, just a few hours South West of Portland, or North East from Eugene and only an hour East of Corvallis, the Beloved festival celebrates the synthesis of art, music and conscious celebration.
A breath of fresh air compared to many festivals, the Beloved Festival boasts one central stage for it's weekend of magic and music, much like the Desert Hearts Festival located in Southern California. With an attendance cap set to 2,500 - Beloved truly is a special, boutique festival that focuses on the mind, body and the soul. This year features the salacious sounds of over 40 incredible acts, including TIPPER, RISING APPALACHIA, Trevor Hall, Fatoumata Diawara, King Sunny Ade, NICOLA CRUZ and cultural icon Bhagavan Das
In addition to the main stage area, Beloved cultivates an array of experiential attractions to keep the mind and body nourished. Festival zones such as The Temple Meadow provide a place for individual and group prayer as well as non-denominational guidance in meditation and movement. At each of the three workshop zones, educational programs aptly highlight concepts surrounding re-connection, movement, and yoga. Additional festival micro-zones include the Temple of Awe, a performance and developmental space with a focus on engaging conversations on world culture, traditions, and providing educational opportunities in understanding relationships and development.
