Discover the Next Flux
2018 is going to be full of surprises. We have acts from all over the United States planned to make an appearance, along with a wonderful collection of live artists, delicious vendors, cultural crafts, interesting workshops, and much more. This year is going to be bigger than ever, and we can't wait to show you what we have been working on.

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.

Quantum Flux III: Remembering our Roots
Our second-year anniversary was an incredible experience. As a community, and as a festival, we have grown quite a lot these past two years. It is amazing to see how a small party in a backyard has evolved into a diverse extravaganza in the forest. At Quantum Flux, we expanded our event by adding a second stage by the creek, a photo booth, and added more talents to our team of artists, vendors, musicians, and more. We literally saw people crying with joy. It was awesome. Thank you to everyone who helped make this awesome culture become a reality. We can't wait to see how the Flux Family continues to build its world, focusing on the flow of the now.

Welcome to Quantum Flux III ! Our second anniversary show was met with the gift of perfect weather, complimented by our beautiful creek. We even built a stage next to it.
Cadron Creek seems to always boost our spirits at the Flux. It's natural beauty, combined with a few artistic installments, is a enjoyable experience for all. It's simply in our nature to explore it.
There is something for everyone here! We love bringing people together, especially when they are having a great time.
As we grow, so does our crowd. Our campers always find nice ways to collaborate and create nice, temporary homes outside.
...and we love them! As usual, family camping was a hit. Kids, dogs, and families enjoyed our diverse lineup of bands for an all around awesome experience.
Like we said, dogs come to the Flux too. Here is one posing for our recap, apparently getting ready to hoop.
People have told us this was their favorite lineup yet, and we have to agree. With acts like iTom Lab, Mr. Bill, Noisemarrow, Dirty Allie, Kichen, Lusid, and so much more, there was always something you just had to check out.
We projected sweet visuals over the main stage on our tent with this crazy huge, super heavy projector. It was pretty mind-blowing. Dirty Allie sure did love it, as we loved her breakbeats!
Ether and Adrienne setup the coolest art booth we have ever had. We only had a few artists, but it felt like we had ten!
We witnessed artists, dancers, musicians, cooks, poets, comedians, farmers, and pretty much everybody, express themselves as themselves. We saw people being people. That's one of the many things we love about this community.
Our early morning crowd started with a friendly bunch of smiling faces with Reed Balentine Saturday. Then it got a whole lot bigger, and the party kept going on deep into the night.
We needed, yes needed, some folk in our lives during the Flux. Arkansauce brought the necessary bluegrass to the stage and we danced our butts off.
It really is. Every Flux, we somehow manage to attract a single glass blower to our shows.
Who can argue with that Even after two years, our fire dancing crew is still growing! From spinning, juggling, and even fire breathing, we see a large assortment of glowing, artistic dances throughout the night.
Our long time friend and musician, Charley Askew, brought his very first band together at our show. They were all obviously confident, and they blew us away.
The creek stage, known for some reason as "Moon Base Alpha", was one of our favorite experiments of the year. We moved all music here around 2am, and people danced and swam until the sun came up!
This is a place without any worries, fears, or anxieties, Leave your troubles behind, grab a drink, and give yourself a well deserved rest.
We announced an hour long "Cluster Flux" jam right before the Chinese Connection Dub Embassy came on. People brought their drums, voices, guitars, and saxophones for one awesome journey.
We sure do, and our crowd did as well! The Chinese Connection Dub Embassy went old school on us. As our first Reggae band, we are excited to bring them back again next year.
Jordan Franz and her group of talented individuals played a large assortment of interesting instruments, including ancient flutes, chimes, bongos, and a harp. It was beautiful.
We also have a photo booth, set up by Haney Woods of Enjoys! Bring your costumes, friends, and whatever else you need to snap an awesome memory.
We saw over 30 different kinds of instruments at our show! Lusid, a psychedelic gentlemen with a didgeridoo, s guitar, and a DJ controller, definitely expressed a part of that intricacy.
We LOVED the layout of Flux more than ever before at Quantum! With everything focused and connected together into a micro city of lights and love, it was an absolute blast.
Quantum Flux was such a wonderful experience, where we saw more smiling faces than ever before. The food was awesome. The music was awesome. EVERYTHING was awesome. We can't wait to see you next year Flux Family!
