Wanderlust Festival Returns to the Shores of O‘ahu February 27-March 2, 2014


 Wanderlust Festival Returns to the Shores of O‘ahu February 27-March 2, 2014 

Yoga & music phenomenon offers epic combination of sun, surf and outdoor activities at the fabled Turtle Bay Resort

New York, NY (September 17, 2013) - Wanderlust Festival, the world’s largest and fastest growing yoga lifestyle brand, announced today one of its first dates for 2014—the second annual Wanderlust O’ahu at the breathtaking Turtle Bay Resort February 27-March 2.  After a successful debut in 2013, Wanderlust O’ahu will return to the island’s legendary North Shore, saying aloha to yogis from around the globe as they experience a four-day retreat filled with surf, sand and sun salutations, in the middle of winter.

Turtle Bay, which features nearly five miles of natural oceanfront property, provides the perfect landscape for guests ready to enjoy Wanderlust’s unique yoga and meditation programs, thought-provoking Speakeasy lectures, live entertainment, local cuisine, and outdoor activities including paddleboarding, surfing, kayaking, hiking and nature walks, all in a serene Hawaiian paradise. This year’s impressive line-up of both mainland and local talent will seamlessly bring together the yoga and surf communities in one unforgettable celebration.

"Wanderlust Festivals are not only known for the incredible yoga, music and educational programs offered, but also the breathtaking locations they are offered in,” said Sean Hoess, Wanderlust co-founder.  “It’s been an incredible journey to take this platform around the world, from mountainside to city parks to beaches and back again.  Being able to offer an outdoor retreat that celebrates the conscious community outside of our summer season is a milestone for Wanderlust, and there’s no place we would rather do it than at Turtle Bay in O’ahu.” 

The Wanderlust O’ahu line-up will welcome renowned yoga teachers, lifestyle gurus and leaders of green living, along with a broad range of the world's top DJs, musicians and performing artists including:

“We are so fortunate to have a lifestyle that is connected to nature on Oahu’s fabled North Shore,” said Rocky Canon, Turtle Bay Ambassador. “Hosting Wanderlust gives us the opportunity to showcase and share the wonder of this place with all who attend. It didn’t take us long to realize last year that our collective appreciation of nature, inspired living, surfing, yoga, and stand up paddle creates a special kind of magic during this event.”

Sage (4-day) and Seeker (3-day) tickets for Wanderlust O‘ahu go on sale Friday, September 20, and Pilgrim (1-day) tickets will go on sale at the end of October.  For more information please visit
