Serenity Base fest lineup announced

Updated: Jun 11, 2019

Careless Records teams up with Serenity Base Fest to give you all of our artists on the same stage for this 3 day festival


A Chicago creative community festival celebrating mind, body, and spirit through movement, music, and art.

Serenity Base aims to be an intimate 3-day camping experience of Chicago-local artists, musicians, and patrons who are looking for something different than a commercialized commuter festival.

Featuring over 30 yoga and movement workshops, there will be flow and movement based classes, ranging from basic yoga, dream workshops, kundalini, vinyasa, and slack-lining, poi, hoop, and staff free flows. These classes and workshops will be held in 3 separate indoor/outdoor buildings. With over 50 music acts on two stages, SBF is featuring mainly Chicago-local and Midwest-local talent. Our Main stage will feature mainly live bands, while the GoodBus will be featured as out Electronic Music Stage.

The name “Serenity Base” is another important aspect of the vision with this festival. Blake's uncle is a massive inspiration for the event. Michael Kandel, Tranquility Bass, began creating experimental electronic fusion music in the late 80s. When Blake was a child, he traveled the world and sent postcards from places he would visit: telling tales of the people he met and the music he played for them. Blake has had the opportunity to watch him sing live a handful of times, and will always have his albums to remember him by. Sadly, he passed away in May 2015. In memory of, and in tribute to him, the festival is named: Serenity Base.

In the spirit of creating a mindful and wellness culture, S-Base will not serve or allow any alcohol. Alcohol tends to be an inhibitor of meaningful connection and is an intentional decision as SBF is about facilitating the ease and transfer of energy, love, information, and wisdom through a positive-vibe-loving crowd of attendees.

All vendors and artists should embody: clean eating, healthy living, sustainable mindset, energy conscious, creative, and knowledgeable veterans of the community.

Life in general is about creating moments and being a moment maker for those around you. Each person has a duty to be the best version of them and share their unique gift to people around them.

Serenity base is all about facilitating those positive vibes and that energy throughout every attendee. Music/Performer | Visual Art/Install | Yoga/Movement | Workshop | Vendor | Volunteer | Street Team | Press/Media |
