Echoes from Agartha
July 26th – 31st, 2023
Echoes From Agartha is one of the most cultured and unique blends of music, art and travel in the world. It runs from July 26 – 31st 2023 in the breathtaking ancient landscapes of Cappadocia in the heart of Anatolia, Turkey and this year will be headlined by Bedouin, Blond:ish, Dixon, Keinemusik, Echonomist, Guy J, Parallelle, Caleesi & Sarah Kreis, Savage & She, Mercan Dede & Secret Tribe (Live), Murat Uncuoglu and many more.
Echoes From Agartha happens across different venues that are all unique and utterly magical. The Zion which is inspired by the Matrix and located in a narrow canyon with tall rock formations that hug the dance floor, creating a cave-like illusion. The IO, a valley surrounded by ancient caves and fairy chimneys dating back to the 4th century and The Yunak Evleri, a rooftop venue that hosts a special sunset party surrounded by the cave rooms. New for this year is Saruhan Caravansary, Friday show in a historic caravanserai, or roadside inn, from the Seljuks Empire where travellers could rest and recover from the day’s journey. There will also be an extra after party for 1200 people in Karakus, a vast ancient cave after the events in Zion and an extra opening cocktail party in the Argos Hotel.
The soundtrack is a deep, spine tingling mix of classy and quality house and electronic from some of the most revered names in the game such as Saga party founders and Human By Default label heads Bedouin, the melodic mastery ofBlond:ish, Innervisions founder Dixon, the ever on form Keinemusik, Greek stylist Echonomist, prog innovator Guy J, the acclaimed Parallelle duo plus more from the likes of Caleesi & Sarah Kreis, Savage & She, Mercan Dede & Secret Tribe (Live), Murat Uncuoglu, Erdi Irmak, Borak, Cihangir Cinar, Eda, Ezgi, Zoe Dona and The Ace Brothers.
Away from the music, Echoes from Agartha has a wealth of local culture, customs and cuisines to explore. You can plot your own adventure with horseback riding, open air museum visits, classy dinner parties, traditional Turkish arts workshops, cave exploration and hot air balloon rides. All this is for only a few lucky people as the capacity remains limited despite huge global demand, all as a way of keeping a special intimate vibe at the festival.
Echoes from Agartha is a dream-like experience, a mix of music, culture and travel and once in a lifetime opportunity to head to this most historic region with a carefully curated soundtrack.
