The opening and closing rituals are created anew for each installment of Elements Festival. These two stretches of time are designed to bring the whole tribe together and get our energies flowing to a sublime shared rhythm. The artists who collaborate to construct them take their inspiration from the natural environment, the original custodians of the land, and the events of the year that’s been.

Each tiny detail of the opening show intertwines with the rest, creating a chain reaction that flows through the festival as a wave of happy energy, setting our intentions for the event to come. We know how hard it is to say goodbye to the carefree shenanigans and non-stop smiles of the Elements world, so when the last beat of the final set fades out, our closing show will gently coax you into a blissful state of serenity, ready to venture back into your daily life.
