Nashville, Tennessee — The third iteration of Deep Tropics’ boutique festival returns to Music City on August 27-28, 2021. It is a carefully curated, music, art, & style experience at Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park in Nashville's beloved Germantown neighborhood.
Deep Tropics is produced by forward-thinking, dance music enthusiasts at Full Circle Presents. The creative site and stage design is led by art director, Aaron Martin and will take the energy to stratospheric levels. The one-of-a-kind amphitheater in the park ensures every viewpoint is perfect with a beautiful downtown skyline view in the backdrop. It will host a massive, ancient temple inspired stage in collaboration with 44 Designs. Intricate lasers, choreographed LED, moving lights, and art installs will illuminate the park. The venue is less than a mile from auxiliary party locations, downtown Nashville, and some of the city’s coolest districts. Deep Tropics has created an entire program of off-site pre-parties, late nights, workshops and opportunities to connect in intimate settings throughout the weekend.
Deep Tropics’ mission is to be the greenest festival in the United States. To support these goals we launched a non-profit organization called Deep Culture, which exists to curate experiences that activate transformation of self, community, and planet. We are going beyond Carbon Neutral to become a Net Positive energy and water event. This simply means we create more energy (and water) than we use. Many of Deep Tropics’ art projects are created from sustainable materials such as hempcrete & aircrete. Additionally, Deep Tropics has a zero waste initiative to ensure everything is either recyclable, compostable, or re-usable. Regenerative design is at the forefront of every aspect of the festival.
Safety and intention will be at the heart of this year's event. We will follow all city and state protocols, while taking extra safety precautions. We have chosen to conservatively operate at 33% Capacity or 1,000 tickets until we have more clarity. We are simplifying our program by focusing all our production energy into one massive stage, the legendary Meru Amphitheater. At this time, we will only sell Tropic Traveler PLUS (VIP) Tickets. They will only be sold in packs of 4-6-8 along with 10-14 person cabana options. This way in the worst scenario, we can ensure the show will go on by converting into a grid/pod system. We have every intention and high hopes that we will be able to open up single, general admission tickets but we are waiting until there is more certainty.
