The Legend Behind The Hidden Village Festival
Legend has it that the festival was first held by a group of free-spirited artists that set up tent on the island at the turn of the millennia. The artists were seeking for a place away from the busy city scene and party locations that allowed them to express their radical expressions in a free manner, while embracing the use of colour and frivolity. In the night, these brave artists freely danced around campfires and discussed ideas of a livelier world. The details of this initial party have remained a mystery, until one of the participants spoke of it, turning a seemingly sleepy hamlet to the capital of dance music.
