The 23rd annual Lotus World Music and Arts Festival celebrates the diversity, beauty, and joy of music and arts from cultures around the world. For a spectacular long weekend September 15-18, more than 140 individual artists in 30+ bands will ignite a global explosion of music and dance performances, workshops, and stunning art installations in multiple venues throughout the heart of downtown Bloomington, Indiana. Your wristband is your passport to experience an entire world of music in one blissful, boisterous weekend — from pavement-quaking outdoor dance tents to contemplative church venues and historic theaters, and from family-friendly arts in the park to a swirling evening street scene, the Lotus vibe is one of exuberant energy, vivid colors, and delectably diverse soundscapes. With ticketed showcases as well as free events for all ages, there’s something for everyone to discover at Lotus! Come join the 12,000 people who make the Festival an annual tradition.
