Nashville’s Deep Tropics music festival is returning to Music City on August 18-19, 2023, for its fifth iteration, promising a dazzling music and interactive art experience. The festival, which has earned critical acclaim from the likes of the NY Times and Pollstar, is known for its unparalleled experience and impressive sustainability practices, making it the most sustainable event in the USA.
Spread across three immersive stages – the ancient temple inspired “Meru” stage, the bass fueled “Lotus” stage, and a third performance space known as the “Congo Soundsystem” – the festival boasts a genre-bending lineup featuring SG Lewis (DJ Set), Gorgon City, What So Not, KHIVA, Inzo, Eli & Fur, Ravenscoon, Sonny Fodera and many more! Additionally, Deep Tropics offers a strong undercard of breakthrough and rising talent, such as Major League DJz, Kream, Saka, Veil, Charles Meyer, to name a few.
The festival’s unique creative site and stage designs will take the energy to stratospheric levels, with the one-of-a-kind amphitheater in the park ensuring every viewpoint is perfect with a beautiful downtown skyline view in the backdrop.
Deep Tropics is also known for its sustainability practices, producing a carbon negative event for the third year in a row. Their mission is to be the greenest festival in the United States, and their efforts are fueled by their non-profit organization Deep Culture, Inc. In 2021, 79% of festival waste was prevented from entering the landfill, and the proceeds from Green Disco Eco-Bands allowed them to plant 59,000+ trees in Kenya and help offset their carbon footprint. In 2022, 93% of festival waste was prevented from entering the landfill. Additionally, Deep Tropics has a zero-waste program to ensure materials are either recyclable, compostable, or re-usable.
The festival promises an entire program of pre-parties, day-time events, workshops, and opportunities to connect in intimate settings throughout the weekend. Multiple off-site afterparty options catering to different musical subgenres will occur simultaneously following the main event to carry festival-goers deep into the night. Additionally, a full program of pop-up events throughout the summer will escalate the energy and reunite the Deep Tropics tribe as they lead into the festival weekend.
At its core, Deep Tropics is an experience that activates transformation of self, community, and planet, pioneering the festival landscape with exemplary sustainable practices. Festival-goers can expect to immerse themselves in a dazzling music and interactive art experience while knowing that their environmental impact is minimized thanks to the festival’s sustainable practices. Tickets for Deep Tropics 2023 are available now, and fans from all corners of the globe are invited to be a part of this one-of-a-kind experience.
