Unifier Festival

Mushpa + Mensa are about to do their first Unifier Festival. Come hang with us!

We were born to live creatively.
Let’s come together and dare to be inspiring.
Let’s create culture together.

Through sharing wisdom, ideas, dancing, singing, painting, sharing story, poem and song, balancing our minds, our hearts and our bodies, and honoring nature, ourselves and one another, we come together without excuse to share our beauty.

Unifier Festival will bring together an amazing group of inspirational artists and educators. This is a sacred celebration of all that we are and all that we can be.

Honoring and bringing together different subcultures, this gathering is a sacred world music festival, a yoga festival, and a dance festival. It is a live art show, a place for ceremony, for Permaculture, for workshops on environmental, social and racial justice, for sculptural works and circus arts. It is a place to care for the land and to eat organic food, and to be inspired and inspire our kids and our elders.

FloydFest Freedom 2017

Ladies and gentlemen, Mushpa + Mensa are beyond stoked to loose our FloydFest virginity this year.  We’ve heard so many great things!

Here’s some 411 on the fest.

FloydFest, which began in 2002, is a world music and arts festival held annually near Floyd, Virginia, in the Blue Ridge Mountains just off the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Taking place on an 80-acre Blue Ridge Mountain venue of unparalleled beauty, FloydFest is camping for a five-day outdoor celebration of roots music, outdoor adventure, and community and is unlike any other music festival you’ll find on the summer roster. With nine unique stages ranging from the hand-hewn timber-framed Dreaming Creek Main Stage and Streamline Stage at Hill Holler to the homey Appalachian-style Workshop Porch to the Backstage VIP Pub, FloydFest is hands down the finest roots music showcase event anywhere, with a non-commercial family-friendly feel, and sincere Southern hospitality.

In addition to music, the festival features local arts and crafts, dance workshops, morning yoga lessons, story telling, poetry readings, and a “Children’s Universe” tent.

It’s music, magic, mountains, and just a touch of mayhem.
