The Grove features the three main stages surrounded by a Jurassic Park like tropical woods.  Moonlight Oasis contains 3 distinct areas: The Lakeside Swimming Beach, Yogachobee and the Jungle Stage.  The Lakeside Swimming  Beach features  the Beach Stage, the Beach Bar, a Ferris Wheel, and more.   Yogachobee features yoga, workshops, flow arts, performance, visionary art, interactive spaces, sculptures, sound healing, thai massage, and a healing house.   The Jungle Stage, a dusk-till-dawn stage in a tropical outer space setting, showcases some of the world’s best house and techno artists, to be announced soon.

One of the highlights of the festival is ”PoWow! A Live Superstar Mashup,” featuring once-in-a-lifetime artist collaborations produced by Paul Peck, the creative force behind the world famous Bonnaroo SuperJam.
