Today, perennial permaculture yoga event Envision Festival shared their complete 2019 music lineup for the ninth edition of the four-day adventure, held between February 28th and March 3rd, by the picturesque Pacific shoreline in the heart of the Costa Rican jungle. The announcement offers a glimpse into an evolution on the conventional music listening experience at the world’s most eco-friendly festival. 

It also points to a deep-seated mission to positively impact the local community through a shared tradition of upholding the finest sounds in Latin America alongside legendary international tastemakers of bass, house, and techno. Further distinguished from its contemporaries as a leader among environmentally focused events, Envision is half yoga retreat and half permaculture conference, wrapped in a world-class music festival. 

Envision is set in a living, breathing jungle wonderland with three eco-kindly designed dance music stages dubbed Sol, Luna, and Lapa. As internationally celebrated emblems of Envision’s spirit, each stage features a highly curated lineup and dazzling aesthetic complete with flame-throwing towers, projection-mapped facades, and top-shelf audio technology from Audiowaska.

Josh Wendel, Envision Festival co-founder and music curator said of the announcement: 

“Our favorite aspect of creating a lineup is watching the crowd react to fresh, unexpected sounds. This year, we went bigger with our top headliners, and took more risks on up-and-coming artists. We also intentionally plan to throw a few curveballs into the schedule to keep guests on their toes not knowing when their next favorite artists might be playing. The FOMO will be real!”

Envision Festival’s previously announced 2019 headliners are joined by big-bodied sounds like Too Many Zooz, Gone Gone Beyond, and Fuerza Dread, among many more. Additions topping the bill include artists at the forefront of progressive awareness like Australia-born sacred bass virtuoso Deya Dova and Boulder, Colorado-based climate activist Xiuhtezcatl. Several featured headliners are preparing once-in-a-lifetime performances and never-before-experienced opportunities for fans to have a side-by-side experience with their most celebrated musical inspirations.

Fan favorite Random Rab is billed for his ninth Envision Festival, following reforesting efforts as part of the yearly tree planting ceremony. Hawaiian reggae rockstar Trevor Hall, is slated to serve a soulful blend of roots and folk. Tycho is brewing up an infinite first-ever performance at the festival, and GRiZ is preparing a mythical "Chasing the Golden Hour Set" on the Luna stage fresh off his "It Gets Better" video premiere. Both Tycho and GRiZ will each offer two sets.
