The Great Synthesis

April 7 – 9, 2023
Live Oak Campground, Santa Barbara, CA


Lucidity is an open-source transformational arts and music festival. We call it open-source because we co-create this festival experience with YOU! We invite you to come play with us, call together your star family, bring art, lead a workshop, spark a spontaneous flash mob, embody a character from your dreams, be silly and wild and free! We bring together a world class lineup of musical talent and weave them together with the sounds and vibrations of our beloved local legends. Our galleries showcase the most brilliant fine art the region has to offer, enriching the festival as a visual voyage. Art installations pleasure participants with multi-sensory stimulation while themed environments create intimate settings for personal connections. Lucidity’s environmental commitment is to leave Live Oak better than before.

The Great Synthesis, our 10th chapter of the Lucid Saga, marks the beginning of a new trilogy. As such, dreamers will notice the convergence of songlines from the past. Our totem animals from our first six years return along with the villages they stood watch over, and will be integrated into the elemental realms of the last 3 chapters.

Lucidity Am-badass-ador Program

Our Ambassador program is now integrated right into our new ticketing platform, Tixr. This is a good thing. It’s easier than ever for your efforts to be tracked and compensated, because it’s all automated!

Zephyr’s Awakening

This 10th chapter of the Lucidity Story, The Great Synthesis, introduces us to Zephyr in the same way as Regeneration Earth, introduced us to Leaf; Moon’s Eye View introduced us to River, and Rising Dawn before that introduced us to Dawn. Air, Earth, Water, and Fire… in The Great Synthesis, the elemental avatars are coming together to complete a whole, along with Luci the elemental avatar of Spirit.

What will happen now that they are united? You’ll have to come to Lucidity Festival to find out, where you’ll get to co-create the next chapter with us!
