On June 1st and 2nd, Purple Hatter’s Ball will return once again to the Spirit of Suwannee Park in Live Oak, Florida, for the eleventh straight year benefitting the Rachel Morningstar Foundation. Since the announcement of the festival’s lineup in March, fans have eagerly been awaiting this latest edition of Purple Hatter’s Ball, which features sets by Lettuce, Spafford, Breaking Biscuits, Toubab Krewe, The Heavy Pets, Roosevelt Collier Trio, Southern Avenue, and more. However, music is not the only thing that draws fans to the Suwannee for Purple Hatter’s Ball, as the festival has an extensive and diverse listing of yoga, healing arts, and other activities scheduled across the weekend.
Today, the festival has announced the full schedule for its Yoga and Arts Village. On Friday, Purple Hatter’s Ball will host Vinyasa yoga flow, zen chakra purification, beginner’s hula hoop, intro to buugeng, and Kirtan. At nighttime, bring your instruments and collaborate with Aupaya and the Magick Solar Suitcases! Anyone can do it. Play an instrument, grab the mic, spit a rhyme, learn how to loop and scratch, or plug into the Suitcases. If you don’t want to play, be a part of the mix by asking any question in the world, which becomes the basis for the next original song. The only guarantee is weirdness. Step up to the plate and learn how easy it is to make a live electronic song on the spot without a laptop!
Saturday will see workshops on Exploring Feminity through Movement, Permaculture, and the Law of Attraction, plus a number of yoga, meditation, and acro yoga classes. Following the permaculture class, where you will learn about organic farming and germinating seeds, Toubab Krewe will be raffling off one of their custom seed boxes containing eight vegetable varieties and a download of their new album, Stylo. Finally, before fans pack up and drive home, Purple Hatter’s Ball will host “Transcendence Sound Healing” and “Stretching and Creative Movement” on Sunday morning, June 3rd.
