Hawaii is home to a kind of paradise and people that put authenticity on the map. From rich traditions to precious landscapes, there’s simply no place like it on Earth. This year’s festival is set on multiple islands, Hawaii Island, Maui, and Oahu. Home to a fusion of East and West cultures, Hawaii offers ancient mystique with a modern twist.
