Festival Nómade is a nomadic experiment that searches to generate a space for gathering, exchange, and promotion of the cultural roots of Latin America by combining music, art, and sustainable tourism.
It takes place faraway from big cities where life is still lived according to ancestral beginnings, encouraging eco-tourism in remote places.
It is built on the basis of respect and care for nature and is shaped to be a platform for artists with congruent musical explorations - those which rekindle the fire of folklore through the use of musical tools brought to us by new technology.
The next installment of this festival will be February 8 - 13 in Manquemapu, 10th Region of Los Lagos, Chile.
The first three days are dedicated to construction, consciousness and learning. Through workshops and lectures festival participants, along with the community, will not only connect with new friends and surroundings but also construct some of the infrastructure that will remain in the community to benefit the families of Manquemapu.
The final three days of the festival will be dedicated to music. It will be a festival of folklore until the sun sets, and with the appearance of the first stars and through the night until sunrise, a festival of Latin American electronic music. The journey is based in the authentic and indigenous sounds of our continent, supported by musical tools that new technology has brought us.
There will also be the chance to take part in activities such as Yoga, Temazcales, Permaculture Workshops, Sound Landscape Expositions, Fire Ceremonies and a wide-range of other outdoor activities.

The Mapu Lahual Coastal Reserve, located in the 10th Region of Los Lagos, Chile, is an indigenous reserve within the coastal mountain range of Osorno Province. Mapu Lahual is considered by the United Nations as one of the most important areas of biological diversity in the world.
The route to the festival site is by a 10km trek. The hike hugs the coast and goes through the middle of a thousand year old forest that surprises you with hidden lookouts and practically deserted beaches.
