Festival goers can enjoy DJ’s, break-dancers, performance art, turntablists, MC’s, and aerialists through 200,000 watts of premium vibrations supplied by PK Sound.

Known for its loyalty to dance music, festival goers can prepare for an interstellar, audiovisual feast as The Pagoda stage manifests into a mecca of music and a cacophony of sound. This year, the stage is enlisting more renovations, art, lights, decor, sound and video mapping than ever before for the dancing adventure of a lifetime.

Pyramids, flowers, and friendly forest creatures shape the enchanted woodland of the Fractal Forest where DJs play in the heart of a burnt out old-growth cedar tree stump, surrounded by a 360 degree immersive, interactive environment featuring the most beautiful dancers on the planet.

Last year, the stage had a keen location right near the river, but with an ever expanding festival and evolving landscape, it’s anyone’s guess where the stage will be located next.
Known affectionately as “The Amp” to festival fans, the Amphitheatre stage has made a shift in recent years towards showcasing more urban beats and innovative bass music producers while still retaining its traditions.
