We have quite the history. Below, you can hop into our time machine and discover previous gatherings. We threw our first festival in a friend's backyard in late 2013. The next year, we threw several more in all sorts of places, including a skate park, a dance studio, and our beloved Cadron Creek that we use to this very day. We began documenting our adventures at Gaia Flux in 2015, and now we collect memories at every show. Take a look and enjoy, Flux Family.

Gaia Flux: Loving our Earth
We celebrated Earth Day with our first festival for the year, Gaia Flux! As our festivals increase in size, so do our visions. We began focusing on a leave-no-trace idealogy, helping people understand how we can keep this world beautiful. Somatoast, Wolf-e-Wolf, Psymbionic, and many more moved our bodies under the stars with over 500 people. We introduced the Flux Family to quite a lot, with more fire dancers, workshops, vendors, and artists than ever before. It was an incredible beginning to the 2015 year, and we couldn't have asked for a better turnout!

One of the most important aspects of our community is teaching children how to be open minded and loving. We were so happy to see our families out at the last show, it was beautiful! Thank you for helping make our environment safe for everyone. We will ALWAYS strive to be family friendly, no matter the age!
What an amazing, diverse, expressive crowd full of interesting faces! We love you guys. This is what happens when you yell "group photo!" at a Flux.
Festival culture and community offers an interesting and safe environment to learn and grow. This is why we host various workshops on uncommon topics, such as flow arts or sacred economics. There are so many secrets to unlock in this world, and we invite you to join us in discovering them.
Jack Bruno and Ahmed Lindemann created some eye-candy artwork throughout the festival. Many people walked away with beautiful artwork and prints.
Aerial Silks, Staff Spinning, Fire Dancing, Yo-Yoing, and much more are popping up all over the place at our gatherings. We are blessed to have so many talented performers!
This giant, LED constructed flower gave quite a nice shine on the crowd.
These killer projections were made possible by Scott, Ryan, and Reese. You guys rock! Asa sure enjoyed them during his late night Psytrance set.
Many faces entered our artists tent and walked away with something artistic to remember Gaia Flux.
The projections, along with the glowing flower, made a great combination for our stage.
We want to make sure everyone has a great time with great food in their bellies. We are building our community of delicious vendors with both veggie and meat options for everyone to enjoy. Here is Ahmed enjoying a hot dog!
We were very happy to have Somatoast, for the first time. He will be returning many more times throughout the year, lifting us with his gooey, mind-expanding glitch.
The tent provided some excellent cooling and shading during the heat, it was super comfortable. People relaxed and jammed in all sorts ways.
Tag Jackson provided us with an absurd amount of surreal sound worlds, all played live with his diverse assortment of electronic gadgetry. It was fantastic.
In the morning, when the stage was quiet, people brought out instruments of their own around the fire pit.
