Guatemala’s Cosmic Convergence Festival is the ‘transformational’ gathering which attracts people from all over the world to the famously mystical, volcanic Lake Atitlán every New Year’s Eve.

The four-day experience, now in its eighth year, is characterised by its mind-blowing array of music, art, workshops, live performances, sacred ceremonies, indigenous traditions and show-stopping surprises. 

Travel critics have often described its picturesque location as ‘the most beautiful lake in the world’.

Cosmic Convergence channels the energy of this sacred Mayan site to form a unique portal of collaboration and discovery. Our New Year’s Eve celebration is an epic explosion of colour, fireworks, laser lights and fire dancers, all mirrored on the lake’s surface. Everyone needs to experience it in their lifetime,” says Cosmic Convergence co-founder, David Casey.

Appealing to all tastes, four dazzlingly-designed music stages will host everything from global bass, downtempo, house, techno, psy-trance, live analog production and an eclectic range of live bands. The finest audio technology will be complemented by mesmerising projection-mapping.

This year, crowds will revel in the sounds of critically-acclaimed film composer Bluetech, Israeli DJ/producer Perfect Stranger, famous for creating his own psychedelic sub-genre, and iconic uptempo female producer Living Light. Latin American label Wizards Collective are among those to represent Guatemala’s burgeoning underground electronic scene, with Mexico’s Jaq Mendez bringing her own dark melodic techno. Phase two of the lineup will be revealed in the coming weeks.
