July 3 – 6
Snowmass Village, Colo.
Yoga festivals aren’t supposed to have huge musical acts for headliners. In theory, they’re supposed to be all sitar and ambient music — but no one told the folks at Wanderlust.
Held in Snowmass Village Wanderlust has taken the best elements of a yoga and spiritual retreat and coupled it with the old-school bombastic hip-hop of Jurassic 5. It’s as if the promoters are asking their attendees to spend all day working on their bodies and mind, so that come the evening, they can summon all of that energy and throw down for a huge show.
You’re going there to see: Jurassic 5.
You’re going to come home talking about: The Wanderlust Spectacular (a.k.a. the Cirque de Soleil of yoga).
