Ever since ABGT250 at the Gorge in 2017, fans have been clamoring for a return to the magical Amphitheatre in Washington State, and the trio have responded with the creation of a new summer festival, Anjuna Weekender, taking place July 27 and 28. It will feature two nights of good old fashioned Anjunafamily fun with sunsets, the Columbia river, and the finest talent that Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep have to offer.
Saturday afternoon will take place in the inimitable surrounds of The Gorge’s main amphitheatre, where Anjunabeats label stars past, present, and future will take us from day to night. Above & Beyond, ALPHA 9 & Spencer Brown, Andrew Bayer, Audien, Gabriel & Dresden, GRUM, ilan Bluestone, Jason Ross, and Tinlicker.
Anjunadeep take charge of proceedings on the Sunday in the adjacent Gorge Meadow, the imprint’s current crop of top flight deep house talent providing the soundtrack for a day of deep decompression and higher states of consciousness. Above & Beyond (Yoga set), Ben Böhmer (Live), Cubicolor (Live), Eli & Fur, James Grant & Jody Wisternoff, Marsh & Nox Vahn, and Yotto.
Many fans, including myself, have described their Anjuna experience at The Gorge as one of the most memorable events of their lives, and ever since that show two years ago, Jono, Tony and Paavo have been quietly plotting their return. From what I’ve heard, the boys were disappointed with the ABGT300 venue and over that weekend decided to make a return to what had become one of their favorite venues. Admittedly, it’s hard to beat an outdoor venue as magnificent as The Gorge where you can sing with your Anjunafam under the stars while your favorite Anjuna stars throw down on stage.
“The ABGT milestone shows will continue to make their way around the world, giving fans in different locations the chance to experience them. But we couldn’t let that stop us from coming back to The Gorge, our new spiritual home. By creating this new “Group Therapy Weekender” we hope, with your help, to recapture the same magic at this incredible venue.”-Above & Beyond
