A new kind of music and lifestyle festival. From 12pm on Friday April 29 through sunset on Sunday May 1, 2016, at the Moapa River Indian Reservation near Las Vegas, Nevada, for a weekend filled with incredible music, visionary speakers, inspirational art and human connection.
Further Future just announced a TED-worthy collection of speakers that includes Eric Schmidt, Bob Pittman + more to speak on tech, music, health, and startups.
Vision Speakers: Eric Schmidt (Alphabet Inc./Google Exec Chairman), Bob Pittman (iHeartMedia CEO, MTV Founder), Stan Chudnovsky (Facebook), Scott Novich (NeoSensory CTO)
Future Of Music Panel: Annie Nightingale (BBC Radio 1), Nick Sabine (Resident Advisor CEO), Jeremie Habib (CEO/founder of Gigwell Digital Booking)
WOW Talks: Ruben Lenten (Champion Kitesurfer battling cancer)
The talks will be set against the stunning backdrop of the Moapa River Reservation in the desert just outside Las Vegas from April 29 – May 1. In addition, a rare convergence of musicians such as Caribou, Four Tet, Nicolas Jaar, The Pharcyde and 50+ more will perform.
Moving beyond the confines of a traditional music festival, Further Future establishes a modern means of social movement and cultural change, engaging a conscious community through a unique curation of world-class musicians and art, alongside inspiring leaders in the areas of science, entrepreneurship, innovation, and technology.
Close your eyes. Imagine yourself surrounded by the people who inspire you the most: great friends, artists both new and established, musicians and performers, futurists and technologists; esteemed entrepreneurs, visionaries and thought leaders, all of you awash with new ideas and insights. You are dancing together deep in a remote desert; you are on the sands of a distant and untouched beach; you are on a mountain top looking across endless snow-capped peaks.
Extraordinary music and stunning art blend with and enhance the land around you. The world of limitations is far away, judgments irrelevant and anything is possible.
This is Further Future. It is an untethered home for a newly forming and borderless society carrying a shared vision of the world we are making together.
We aspire to be… an enlightened community connected through magical, beautiful and amazing experiences around the Universe, fostering a culture of mindful optimism, wonder and exploration.
To be kind and generous; to be passionate. To be innovative and not afraid to believe. To welcome a range of amazing and inspiring people to share our journey, past the future and beyond the horizon.
We aspire to help seed the discovery of new knowledge and technologies to protect and heal our planet, our societies and one another, and to help us reach the next stage in our collective evolution. To constantly strive to improve; to become leaders in sustainability and resource efficiency, and in all that we do.
We aspire to inspire.
We are not… another music festival. We are not that impossible, wonderful city on the Playa. We are not looking anywhere but forwards. We are not going to tell you who to be.
You… are the hero.
