Atlanta, Georgia (July 19, 2016) – Imagine Music Festival, a 3-day camping electronic dance music festival in Atlanta, Georgia this August 26 – 28, 2016 at the Atlanta Motor Speedway, has announced details surrounding its highly anticipated The Imaginarium. Inspired by the lost city of Atlantis, Imagine invites guests to experience all the wonders of this technologically and spiritually advanced civilization, which was highlighted by mystics, scientists, artists, sages, healers, seekers and wisdom keepers with sacred and hidden knowledge of the universe. Amongst the many wonders of The Imaginarium will be the Center of Consciousness, which focuses on sacred teachings such as Flow Arts, Yoga, Meditation, Qi Gong, and prophecies with wisdom keepers and mystics. The Center of Consciousness will function both as a site for learning and sacred ceremonies such as drum circles and central fires. Within this area, guests can also partake in live painting, art installations and a gallery, henna tattoos and more.


“This year we continue the fairytale. Our aquatic experiences from misting domes, splash pool, fountains and more allow guests to become fully immersed in their environment while keeping cool,” says Iris Presents founders Glenn and Madeleine Goodhand.  “With your hearts fulfilled by the music, we want to serve your mind as well. This year you will find more transformational arts and workshops that complement the music and forge a personal journey to something deeper.”


As one of the country’s last remaining independent festivals, Imagine is an all-encompassing, 360-degree sensory experience that blends music, circus troupes, performers, dancers, art, workshops, classes and more. Cirque USA will once again provide world-class cirque acts that include aerial artists, bungee performers, living statues, atmosphere artists and more. On the more interactive side, will be the Imagination Art Space curated by Jacob Hill. Scattered throughout the festival grounds, Imagination Art Space will exhibit works inspired and created at the festival. Building off of its immersive aquatic fairytale with an abundance of performers and live acts, Imagine will also include unique atmospheres such as The Imagine Beach & Splash Pool and Ocean View VIP Deck. Festival goers are invited to get wet and dance in the gigantic splash pool or just chill out on the beach chairs and VIP cabanas. The Ocean View VIP Deck offers premium bottle service and the best view of the Main Stage. Featuring elevated viewing, live entertainment, circus acts, special effects, premium wait staff, private seating, private air-conditioned bathrooms, and more – the Ocean View VIP Deck has it all. Finally, what festival would not be complete without amusement rides? The ultimate playground, the carnival rides at Imagine will include a ferris wheel that promises a view of Imagine that should not be missed.


Finally, new this year, Imagine has teamed up with AQUA for a main stage take over with their 3D water hologram production. Dancing water fountains and mesmerizing 3D images will float next to the headliners, as they play out their set. In addition to a world-class water hologram show, the partnership gives back to third world countries. Founded with the idea that every concert goer can make a difference, AQUA produces international year-round tours where each ticket purchased results in clean water for a child in a third world country. This year, Imagine and AQUA are introducing Pocket Change, where the change in your pocket can make a huge impact on a child’s life in Ghana.
