A new festival experience called 4xFAR is coming to the Coachella Valley next year. The festival, which is presented by Land Rover, is set to debut at Empire Grand Oasis on Jan. 18-19, 2020.
The lineup is slated to be filled by Grammy-winning Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, the dynamic duo of Mark Ronson & Q-Tip, and two-time Grammy-nominated duo Sofi Tukker. American rockers Young The Giant, Kurt Vile and The Violators, and British-Japanese electronic house producer Maya Janes Coles will also be making appearances, as will be English songwriting prodigy Mahalia, surf-rock icons Tijuana Panthers, synthesizer expert LP Giobbi and Brighton’s Chappaqua Wrestling, with more artists yet to be announced.
An official press release describes the new festival as follows:
4xFAR will offer attendees a contemporary adventure. A unique stage nestled amidst the palms will play host to musical programming, while across the Empire Grand Oasis guests will be able to enjoy a series of interactive experiences carefully curated by Outside Magazine. Onsite activities will range from fly-fishing demos, wilderness survival and outdoor photography workshops, mountain biking, slacklining, yoga, intimate panel conversations, premium dining opportunities, climbing and bouldering, spirit and wine tastings and much more. Attendees will also have the chance to experience the 2020 Land Rover Defender on purpose-built off-road courses.
DJ Garth Trinidad, music curator for the festival, said in a statement that “4XFAR is set to be the first experience of its kind in lifestyle focused entertainment—an intimate, celebratory adventure where guests can taste the cross pollinated nectar of music, art, adventure, and culture in a gorgeous oasis under the desert sky. I’m elated to be in the mix as music curator!”
Also offered during the two-day festival are a series of daily panel conversations and experiential classes centered around wellness and pushing physical boundaries, hosted by big-wave surfer Laird Hamilton and olympic volleyball player Gabby Reece. Renowned muralist James Goldcrown will showcase his signature pieces throughout the festival, Camel Trophy competition winners will also be on hand to sign autographs and share tales of their adventures at the peak of all-terrain automotive exploration, and Virgin Galactic pilots will share their tales as they shed light on the global adventure community through the lens of space travel.
The event is produced by the Corso Agency, who produced Beyoncé’s Homecoming (!) and have worked numerous festivals nationwide, including Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra Music Festival, Outside Lands, Desert Trip and Life Is Beautiful. Tickets are available here.
