Between the venue changes and the schedule additions, there’s a lot that’s new at Wanderlust this year — and the event has just gotten bigger and better. “As Wanderlust has grown, we found ourselves needing a bit more room to stretch in the village,” says Wanderlust co-founder Sean Hoess. Hence the decision to move from Copper Mountain to Snowmass Village — and with more room, the organizers were able to add a photography workshop and adventure race to the already loaded lineup. “Yoga is and will remain the heart and soul of the Wanderlust experience,” Hoess notes, “but the festival is about much more than yoga. It’s a yoga retreat crossed with an ideas conference and a music festival, with a solid dash of food-festival culture mixed in. It’s an open platform, and we want to gather a broad community around mindfulness and the arts.”
The schedule also includes an electric-bicycle exchange, a farm-to-table dinner, concerts featuring Jurassic 5 and Tycho, hikes, runs, mountain biking, a wine tasting and even a stand-up paddleboard program. “Wanderlust is the most fun you can have while doing something that is good for you,” Hoess promises.
Wanderlust runs through Sunday (a yoga-only component continues for several more days). Four ticket levels give you the chance to sample as many (or as few) of the activities as you desire; one-day passes start at $110 and include access to all music events.
