Photo Gallery: Bhaktifest 2010

Now in its second year, Bhaktifest is a mecca for soul-searching yogis, healers, musicians, and seekers from around the globe. The more grassroots and unabashedly spiritual version of its cousin Wanderlust, this lovefest brings together yoga superstars like Shiva Rea, Ashley Turner, and Saul David Raye, inspiring speakers, and some of the biggest kirtan artists in the world leading crowds in a communal, round the clock singalong. We survived Joshua Tree’s 100+ degree weather thanks to some of the highest quality and most affordable vendors we’ve found at any festival, anywhere, and accommodations at the area’s newest motel/art installation Mojave Sands. Better believe we’ll be back next year — can’t argue with four days of blissed-out desert living.
