The Wanderlust Festival is organized by Jeff Kranso, the owner of Velour Music Group, a company that has helped put together festivals like Bonnaroo and Austin City Limits Music Festival, and Schuyler Grant, a renowned yogi who organizes yoga retreats all over the world.

Whether you attend for the music, the yoga practice or to just be surrounded by like-minded people in inspiring outdoor settings, Wanderlust is a place to move freely, rejuvenate and take your wellness to a visceral new level,” stated Krasno.
