As Turkish mythology meets an electronic underground of visionary music, we pay homage to the spirit of the ancient civilizations of Central Anatolia. Explored by archeologists, historians and anthropologists – it is a region where shamanism and Tangrism is a practice that is continued even today. Inspired by this fascinating history, culture and mythology, the Ayata Festival narrates the story of the Moon God (Ay Ata), who lived with his beloved, the Sun Goddess (Gun Ana) on the sixth floor of the skies.

Since ancient times, Turkish people of the region have believed in the secret lunar powers of all human beings. The moon itself is a magical guide – each passing phase significant and relevant to a specific phase of life: from ‘new’ born child and ‘full’ mature adult – to the ‘waning’ of the aged until the point of the ‘black moon,’ when life meets death. The spirit behind this mythology ignites a deeper understanding of the Samadhi that is already embodied within us. Following in the footsteps of our ancestors, Ayata Festival is inspired to reach a universal state of mind that unites local music, art, performance and culture with the pulse of the psychedelic music scene.

So as we welcome a global roster of producers, DJs and visual artists – we celebrate our shamanic roots, which have grown and evolved from Middle Asia to Anatolia.

At the Moon Temple Stage, we will host an awesome selection of artists from across the vibrant underworld of psychedelic trance, while at the Sun Temple, we create a haven for chilling to both live music and downtempo beats as well as for watching performances and partaking in holistic practices.

There will also be art, visuals, projection mapping, décor, land art and much more created by some of the finest artists that include: Turkey’s Pixel Paralex (formed of the artists, Hakan Hisim and Gokhan Gezici) – and Greek collective, Botn.
