Mystic Mountain Festival was born out of friendship, love for nature and inspiration to share beautiful music in a truly mythical natural environment, to drift together through the inner worlds.

To discover new horizons of the inner Self, and, through this experience, to allow the transformation of our lives into a wider, deeper and more magnificent version.

And all of this during the period of summer solstice – one of the most powerful moments of the year.

If you love small festivals with an intimate vibe, this is a place for you.

Welcome!

Welcome!

The concept of the festival differs from a standard psytrance festival scheme. The accent is on daily activities and connecting with nature and our true Self.

Open air main stage will be active during daytime until midnight on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday so that you will be able to have a good night sleep in the camp.

However, on those first three days you will also have the opportunity to party on the beautiful indoor chill out stage with a panoramic view of the mountains. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday the outdoor party on the main stage will last all night and the chill out stage will of course be open as well.

The program is divided as follows:

  • Party: integrates top selection of various music genres: psytrance, goa trance, psychill, psybient, house, techno, lounge, ambient and performance of bands of original style
  • Insightful: various workshops, seminars, group meditations, individual treatments, artistic exhibitions and performances
  • Adventure: guided hiking tours, frisbee, football, badminton etc., trips to the coast and the adrenaline park – in your own arrangement

The list of festival program and performance lineup will be continually updated. If you wish to share and show off your talents, feel free to apply.

About solstice

 

Besides indicating certain position of our planet, solstice and equinox always had a higher meaning for humans because they are related to natural energy, yearly cycle and our customs. Regardless of origin and specific nation, culture or religion, the time around solstice and equinox was always special because the language of nature is universal, it is not constrained by human limitations and a while ago, people understood it very well.

You can uncover secrets of these magical moments if you scratch below the surface and explore ancient and often forgotten tradition and culture of your ancestors no matter where you come from. In old Slavic and Croatian culture, tradition and mythology, the truth about summer solstice lies behind Saint John the Baptist Day in Catholic Church or Saint John Kupala Day in Orthodox Church, which also borrowed the original name of this magical ritual – Kupala Night.

From nature’s perspective, Kupala represents the peak of year’s fertility – the sun which creates life reaches its highest point in the sky; the day lasts longest while the nature flourishes with energy and life. From the perspective of ancient civilizations and our ancestors which truly depended on nature and the sun to survive, Kupala represents the victory of light over darkness, unification of earth and the sky, fire and water, men and women. There is an abundance of food and festivals that celebrate life take place everywhere.

In Slavic mythology Mara passes her apple to Ivo in order to commence heavenly wedding, make love and spread fertility over the entire Earth. Among Slavs, the Kupala Night is celebrated through rituals, celebrations and various magical and romantic customs: firing summer bonfire, jumping over the fire, knitting wearing and lying wreaths with candles in water, bathing, setting Svarica on fire and lying her into water. Most of these customs are practiced nowadays through Christian religion. Find out more about Kupala Night here.
