2023 Fractal Fest

2023 9 24 Fractalfest 2




Moses Scout Reservation - Russell MA


_____10yr Anniversary_____

Fractalfest 2013 we embarked on a mission to host our first multi-day outdoor campout event for 250 faithful fractilians in the mountains of Vermont USA. One stage, a few workshops, some rain and great vibes, we all stomped as a tribe for 3 days.
This year, we return for a seminal moment, our 10-year anniversary! Yes we’ve grown to 1,500+, 2 main stages and a chillout, loaded workshop lineups, full fledged art gallery & installations, healing space, kids camp, a staff larger than that original 2013 event itself, and more! While we’ve grown, we have maintained constant diligence in retaining our tribal roots. Placing emphasis on those tiny details that make the difference, keeping that personal touch and human nature which separates us from larger/more corporate orgs.
We are humbled to share our evolution with you and look forward to growing with you for another 10 years!

_____Theme: FutureFi_____

Our future is divided into two societies, one Utopian & one Dystopian. The factions exist separately, but together, interconnected, like yin & yang. The lines between the two get blurred depending on who you ask.
At Fractalfest 2023, enter a world in the future where you get to explore the growing divide yet increasingly illusioned difference between the two.
Is the Utopia all it really seems to be? Is the Dystopia really as bad as they say? It could be all you thought or you may find one is really the other.
Bonus FutureCred to those who show up to the Utopian Stage in your freshest sci-fi metallic minimalist vibe attire on Saturday & in their earthiest creaturiest garb to the Dystopian Stage on Sunday
