There’s plenty of other activities for the festival goers to indulge in too: horseback riding, hot air balloon rides, tasting Turkish cuisine, ceramics making and cave exploration are all on offer for those who have a ticket.
On the note of hot air balloon rides – there’s even the opportunity to attend an afterparty in one.
"Echoes from Agartha is more than just a festival: it’s a transformative experience that is designed to expand people’s perception about the history and introduce them with the rich culture of the area," say directors Yalim and Yaaz Acar. "A Unesco World Heritage site, Cappadocia has existed as a bridge between many civilisations and cultures since the beginning of time. Bringing people together into this experience from all around the world with different cultural backgrounds is the most special thing we are beyond excited for."

There are various accommodation packages available, which all include access to the festival, plus stays at various hotels around the region. You can find out more information here.
