An awakening of the soul
“Situated between the jungle and the beach, Envision Festival is an awakening of the soul. Through an emphasized focus on our pillars of movement, spirituality, music, art, health, sustainability and education, it is much more than just a music festival”, this is how the event is described on its website.
A great economic and tourist impact
It is expected that of the 7,000 people who will be present at Envision, 85% will be foreigners, so it will generate a great economic and tourist impact on the Uvita community.
While it does bring money, none of it goes to the locals. This is an enormous disruption to the Actual Community. Traffic, garbage, noise, water and sanitation problems, locals try to avoid that area during the festival. Some can’t; they live there, and can’t stand this
