This convergence of minds and cultures across various areas of expertise fosters a rich exchange of ideas, creating a space where the universal values of unity, diversity, and exploration are celebrated. As the festival lineup continues to unfold, it stands as a living testament to the power of collaboration, breaking down barriers and forging connections that extend far beyond the realm of music, echoing the heartbeat of a truly global community.
“Texas Eclipse is more than just a festival; it is a testament to the power of global collaboration, uniting creative forces to foster and manifest positive change. We hope that what we do here to celebrate and connect the mind and spirit will serve as an example of what is possible in humanity’s exciting future.” Mitch Morales, Founder Texas Eclipse
From April 5th to 9th, a gathering of up to 50,000 diverse attendees from festival lovers to eclipse enthusiasts will flock to central Texas for five days of creative expression, consciousness exploration, and cosmic curiosity for an experience millions of years in the making.
“We see these gatherings as a responsibility and service to our planet in the highest form that we can offer. People from so many walks of life come together to witness a total solar eclipse and celebrate the fact that we are conscious, aware and alive in this moment. Community gatherings like these are vital for shared human experience — they nourish the soul and enable social change.  
We are so excited to bring back a unique showcase of 12 different global collaborators who offer much more to the event than music — big art, workshops, yoga, Indigenous wisdom, kids and family programming, a bush spa — all while being surrounded by the awe-inspiring nature of the Texas Hill Country.” – Gwen Gruesen (Symbiosis)
