Fractalfest 2022 - SuperTruth™
August 25-28 | Fractal Forest, MA, USA
Fractalfest is a 4-day gathering in the northeast woodlands focusing on immersive atmospheres, welcoming vibe, and inspirational moments. It features hand-selected electronic music amongst three custom stages, dozens of workshops, Tea Lounge, Artifaktorium & Fine Art Galleries, Effigy Burn, Art Installations & Performances, Support Spaces, Healing Village & more.
We are constantly inundated by outsider efforts to manipulate our thoughts and feelings about the world and each other. Our emotions are broken down into algorithms. Our opinions are moulded by headlines. Is there such thing as 'the truth'?
At Fractalfest 2022, we aim to break free and shine light on our own true narratives. We embrace the spirit of friendship, art, music, wellness, and culture. We celebrate real human experience and question what it is about life that really matters. We do this by embracing the SuperTruth™, a parody of the forces that attempt to control us. Join us in an honest to weirdness homage to the inherent silliness of life.
--> Vibes Patrol
Vibes patrol preserves that special vibe of Fractal events. It keeps the atmosphere safe through diligent observation while responding to over intoxication, aggressive behavior, and sexual misconduct.
If any of these situations come up, find a Vibes patrol member (wearing a neon yellow armband), or any staff member.
