Indie Yoga, Alternative Power Productions and Madero Group are very excited to announce the return of V Elements Festival on Saturday, April 5 to the beautiful Liberty Station in Point Loma, with higher profile music acts and yoga instructors, expanded event grounds, an additional stage, more daytime workshops, bodywork practitioners, artists, vendors and décor.
V Elements (pronounced Five Elements) is a one-day sustainable yoga, music, and arts festival in the heart of San Diego. It is a wonderfully eclectic fusion of yoga classes during the day, led by some of the most sought-after instructors, and music performances by night, with national, regional and local electronic, jam, funk, hip hop, soul and world music acts. V Elements Festival will focus on balancing the five elements represented by earth, wind, fire, water, and space. We will display this through the use of yoga, music, community, art, health, and environment. Additionally, there is a variety of culture and arts throughout. It is no wonder that V Elements Festival has quickly become one of the most unique events the City has ever seen!
Focused on energy usage and carbon management, V Elements will integrate sustainability throughout the entire event. They will accomplish this through the use of alternatively powered production, which includes the largest solar-powered stage in the country. V Elements will also work with Carbonfund.org to calculate and offset its carbon footprint through the purchase of carbon offsets. Other unique sustainable offerings will include paperless marketing, bike valet, shuttle points and more. Five Elements will be the greenest yoga, music and arts festival in the country!
In its inaugural year, V Elements hosted San Diego’s largest solar-powered party, with over 2,000 attendees who, in addition to the Yoga and Music portions of the event, enjoyed a variety of creative vendors and artists, local food, workshops, free massage, and acupressure. A portion of proceeds will be donated to the Surfrider Foundation San Diego Chapter.
