Since it started 14 years ago, the Evolve Festival has become a rite of passage for twentysomething East Coasters and festival road-trippers across Canada & the eastern U.S. It’s a one-of-a-kind, hands-on living experience that goes far beyond merely being another summer weekend of incredible live music and DJs -- it’s a mind, body and soul experience -- there’s the spectacular and inspiring Nova Scotia scenery, delicious and nourishing food, fireworks and multimedia, and our pride and joy Awareness Village with workshops such as yoga & healing arts (this year headlined by Super-Conscious Relaxation Yoga with Reveen, the world-famous hypnotist and son of The Great Reveen), culinary arts, craft-making and so much more to connect people to conscious and sustainable living all year-round.
