Ion Ludwig, Vera, Vril, and many more names have been confirmed for the 2017 debut edition of Waking Life, an adventurous arts and music festival located near the medieval town of Crato, Portugal—one of the most deserted regions in Southern Europe.

The fundamental idea of the festival is to "facilitate a spellbinding environment brought about by co-creation," the organizers say. Spread over the four-day gathering, "humans and non-humans of all walks of life are invited to take part and (dis)connect, contributing to the celebration." A page dedicated to getting involved can be found on the festival website, be it performance art, ecological or art installations.

The musical program will be co-curated with Giegling, and Return, Solid-AM’s party arm. The three stages by the lake will be the "perfect setting" to indulge in a broad spectrum of sound, not limited to electronic music only. Some artists will make a second appearance at the festival and perform special ambient or slow live sets on the chill-out stage.Several artists from the Portugese label Shhpuma Records will also represent and celebrate the creative and richly heterogeneous moment in the country’s musical history.

More information, including tickets, can be found here.
