PRESS

Gratitude Migration promises to be a unique event with a multitude of stories to tell.

  • As a festival focused on expansion, transformation, collaboration and creation, this is not your average music festival. We incorporate speakers, workshops, activities and yoga to encourage complete participation and connection to the present moment. We have brought in a variety of musicians across all genres to cater to all vibes at all times, and are encouraging the practice of Gratitude as a way to integrate the experiences of the weekend into bringing change into the world.
  • We are a "Leave a Positive Trace" festival focused on eco-consciousness and sustainability. We educate and encourage our participants to sort their trash, minimize waste and leave no trace. Our environments are named to encourage mindfulness of habitats around the world, and and the majority of food vendors are responsibly-sourced, sustainable and plant-based.
  • We have partnered with the town of Keansburg and relevant borough and county officials to create a collaborative community between New-York and Brooklyn-based creatives and the locals of Keansburg. This includes a mural as part of the Keansburg Mural Project, painted during the event; a food drive featuring Peacekeepers; and a strong partnership with the Keansburg Business Alliance to produce a map of local businesses and free shuttles to the town. We also encourage social media tagging of the town as hELLO Beach and will donate left items to a local charity. We are looking forward to future partnerships to bring creativity and culture into the community.
