Superstar Producer and DJ, GRiZ, will be hosting another one of his signature virtual events this coming February. This will be the second iteration of his at-home spiritual retreat “Camp Kulabunga”. The special event started in 2018 when GRiZ aimed to create an ‘intimate, sober, technology-free wellness retreat’, but just like almost everything, he had to find a way to reinvent the event and move it into a virtual space. Last August GRiZ hosted the first Virtual Camp Kulabunga and thanks to its incredible success he decided to bring it back for a winter edition.
This year’s Virtual Kulabunga will take place on February 20-21, and will once again aim to offer a variety of activities that go beyond what we have seen many other virtual events offer over the last year. The two-day retreat features many seminars and group activities planned from 10 AM to 9 PM. Despite the virtual nature of the retreat, GRiZ also aims to disconnect attendees from their screens as much as possible and plans to hold off-screen activities as well as breaks for meals and in between workshops.
Some of the seminars and activities planned include creative writing with GRiZ himself, Yoga-Qi, guided meditations, expressive arts, and even holistic fitness. The retreat is “focused on radical inclusion, community, self-empowerment, and wellness”.
Camp Kulabunga is offering a special offer for attendees who purchase an Early Bird registration; they will receive a care package that includes art supplies and workshop engagement tools that will be used during the retreat’s seminars, as well as off-screen activity supplies and a limited edition Virtual Kulabunga t-shirt with additional swag.
In the face of a new, socially distanced reality, Camp Kulabinga’s virtual retreat is a prime example of how today’s biggest movers in the music world are rethinking how to keep their communities connected while maintaining the sentiment and spirit of the original event.
