The Monastery Festival Experience
In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we at The Gardens of Babylon promised ourselves to be driven by love instead of fear and we kept hoping for that message of relief, for vaccins and for the reunion at The Monastery 2020. We put the health and safety of our beautiful community above all.
And so it is with great sadness that we have to officially inform you that The Monastery Festival Experience 2020 will be postponed.
We would like to take a moment to thank the core team, the musicians, the spiritual teachers, the freelancers, the builders to be, the performers, the site crew, the chefs, the bar crew, the glitter girls, the volunteers, the food trucks and all the other ones on our team for joining us to initially create this magical weekend with so much love and commitment.
You can hardly believe how many people are involved in a production like this.
And it pains us to see it all go up in smoke.
We would also like to thank you. Thank you for wanting to join our beautiful family reunion.
We will return in 2021 with so much preparation that we can top any expectation whatsoever.
What happens next?

We live in a strange time.
A time to be thankful for and yet a resentful time when news like this reaches us.
We welcome all the waves of our emotions and look forward to next year.
