Not far from downtown ATL, getting to Imagine Fest is easy for anyone commuting or camping over the weekend. Expecting many visitors to join the hot and sunny summer festival, Unity Travel has put together travel packages to help smooth out all the travel logistics. For those who enjoy hotel stays, there will be shuttle busses ready to transport you to a dance floor (check out the “all-in-one” package). A QUBE village with glamped out tents in the camping section are also available for a less rugged camping experience . Other amenities, including free showers, will leave you with enough free time to spend with your new neighbors/ lifelong friends. 

The entertainment will begin before even entering the venue. Field games and activities will be offered throughout the weekend for anyone looking for good camaraderie. For the tailgate and tailgating fun, we’ll have our friends at Tailgating Challenge guide us through their best tips and gadgets to make you stand out in a crowd (cue weird yet use full contraption).

Next there is The Imaginarium. This is where your mind can transform via workshops that will be focusing on yoga, flow, sacred geometry, aerial arts and more. You’ll also be stopping every few minutes throughout the festival to get a good glimpse and snap of all the remarkable art installations. To beat the heat, you can count on a quick dip with the giant swans at the splash pool before heading to the silent disco.

As one of the country’s last remaining independent festivals, Imagine has evolved into an all-encompassing, 360-degree sensory experience that blends music, circus troupes, performers, dancers, art, workshops, classes and more. In 2017 the festival hosted approximately 90,000 attendees and anticipates even more guests in 2018.
