September 30 – October 2, 2016
a weekend festival of myth, music, and magic
Isis Oasis, Geyservile, CA
Hexenfest is a music and arts festival dedicated to exploring the intersection of art and magic. Myth and legend, folklore and fairytale, experiences of the numinous, all find a home here. We celebrate artists who explore the wild unknown, those who look to the realms of myth and dream and reflect their otherworldly visions into our world.
Hexenfest has a flair for the darkly exotic. Gothic, Pagan, and Tribal belly dance themes are featured prominently, evoking the forbidden forest more than than the enchanted wood. If you feel at home in dark fairytales, join us in the realm!
