If you like your festivals more psychedelic than Austin Powers' trousers then you're in luck - Atman Festival in Sri Lanka's Colombo is a spiritual and colourful beach extravaganza that brings the trance world to this south Asian isle.
Held on the beach near Colombo, this fest (that refers to itself as 'the tribe') welcomes musicians and revellers from all corners of the globe, who wash up on the tropical shores in search of epic all-nighters and happy-go-lucky festival vibes. While huge name trance and electronic DJs jet in from around the world, the event also prides itself on working with local communities. Sustainable materials and suppliers are used to build and stock the site and locals sell homegrown food and handmade crafts. Part social movement, part beach rave, this event is a unique, diverse celebration.
