Symbiosis Gathering, a multifaceted lakeside music and arts event, has announced the complete musical programming for its 2016 ‘Family Tree’ event, featuring some of the world’s most acclaimed electronic pioneers and live performers.

Live spectacles from FKA Twigs, Gramatik, Santigold, Ta-Ku, Warpaint, Balkan Beat Box, FKJ, Hundred Waters, Oh Wonder, and Rising Appalachia will be joined by global purveyors of the underground Claude VonStroke, Justin Martin, Lee Foss, Pan-Pot, Seth Troxler, and Shiba San, plus bass-heavy performances by RL Grime, Beats Antique, Gaslamp Killer, Opiuo, Ott & The All-Seeing I and many more.

Symbiosis Gathering offers a multi-disciplinary experience for the senses, over 11 years it has built a creative community based on exploration. Attendees can wander between six lakeside stages, swim between art boats, learn from visionaries in permaculture, yoga, and design, enjoy organic food or simply get lost in the multitude of interactive environments – an immersive and subversive alternative to the corporatized festival experience.

A crux of Symbiosis Gathering is its arts curation, the event gives creators from around the world a chance to showcase their talents and contribute to an awe-inspiring environment. 2015 saw the maiden voyage of Symbiosis’ Art Boat programming, which provided totally unique aquatic dance parties aboard interactive crafts, and the magical sight of a Delorean hovercraft performing donuts at sunset. Terrestrial art installations are also a pillar at Symbiosis, from delicate mandalas, larger than life structures for climbing and exploring, architectural stage designs, fire sculptures and even temporary art galleries. The fusion of visual art, music and the natural landscape, has earned Symbiosis a reputation as a hotbed for creative growth and expression.

Symbiosis Gathering: Family Tree will not only be a time for celebrating the reunion of families and memories from past years, but will serve as a precursor for what may be the burgeoning brand’s most important event to date: Symbiosis Gathering Oregon Eclipse 2017.
