On December 21, 2012, a monumental convergence of like-minded individuals from across nations and borders was born. Caught in the midst of prophecies from across cultures concerning the ‘end of time’, people across the Earth asked important questions about who we are as a people and where we are going. While some anticipated catastrophe, others attempted collective activation into a new paradigm that would shift the ways in which we spend on our time on this planet. Across the globe people gathered and ignited their will to continue their work here on Earth through music, art, activism and prayers.
Deep in the heartlands of America, a small group of musicians, artists and spiritual activists organized a gathering that included a variety of experience from live music to art, workshops, presentations and more. Inspired by the progressive spirit of the internationally-known and celebrated Earth Day (originally founded on the spring equinox in 1969) – this group named the event Earth Night – a testament to the power of global unification as well as the extended darkness offered by the winter solstice – the longest night of every year. Much like Earth Day, Earth Night rooted itself in the ever-growing environmental movement while taking time to recognize some of the practices of old that connected us to our planet in ways we hardly have the language for today.
Earth Night returns this December 20 and 21 to the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion in Columbus, Ohio for a 2-night and 1 day celebration that envelopes the core of the solstice in a ceremonious dance of music, art, and spirit. Earth Night is proud to announce a 2 full nights of music and production this year at the L.C. Pavilion in Columbus, featuring 2 nights of Papadosio along with an internationally-acclaimed music lineup Ott & the All-Seeing I (Live Band), Hundred Waters (OWSLA), Shigeto (Ghostly International), and The Main Squeeze. The Earth Night workshop series lineup and location will be announced soon.
