The Jackson Wellsprings is where the roots of our festival started with festival gathering events 17 years ago. Some say “our first Mystic” was back in the year 2000 when we had Michael Franti, Freedom Tribe, Sasha Rose and many of the artists who now regularly play at the Jackson Wellsprings.We aim to make this a ZERO WASTE event. We follow the policy of PACK-IT-IN and PACK-IT-OUT. Please be respectful on this land, mindful of neighbors on the way in and out, and please, clean up after yourself.
The Jackson Wellsprings is just a few minutes outside of downtown Ashland on the north side of town. You can get there from town coming down Siskiyou past the car dealership where Siskiyou changes name turning into Hwy 99N. It’s also just off Exit 19 at 2253 Hwy 99N, Ashland, OR 97520.
This year we’re doing another intimate smaller scale event utilizing the Casbah Teahouse stage with only 350 capacity. Our 1st official Mystic event 10 years ago had about 800 in attendance and we have many of the same artists again. Therefore, we expect to sell out in advance. This year’s intimate event is again a big thank you for our closest friends and supporters over the years and we are asking that you RSVP on our website and we will email you a link to process your reservation(s) and buy your tickets.
Children 12 and under attend for FREE.
Youth ages 13 – 16 attend for approximately HALF-PRICE of any adult ticket.
Frequently Asked Questions:
Do I have to camp or is there lodging nearby?
There is no lodging in the immediate vicinity of the gathering, so this is a camping-only event.
If youʻre not into the camping experience, there are hotels in Ashland only minutes away.
What should I bring for camping?
This is a camping event so bring all your own camping gear and accessories. If you come with an RV or Live-In Vehicle, there will be a designated area for you to park and stay. There will be healthy food provided for sale (2 group meals per day), snacks throughout, porta potties and hand-washing stations.
Is there water/food available or should I bring my own?
Bring your own reusable water bottle (or there may be one for sale! ). There will be great food and beverage vendors including raw foods/vegetarian/vegan/ vendors with amazing healthy deserts!
How does parking work?
Parking is in designated areas for day passes, overnight camping and RV’s. A nominal parking fee will be requested for each vehicle to “green the event” which will be greatly discounted or free for those who carpool (3 or more people).
Is there security at the event?
Yes, we have our own 24/7 Shanti-Sena security team on-site . However, you are still responsible for securing you own camping areas and we cannot be held responsible for any losses in those areas.
What Not to Bring
There is no selling of beer or alcohol at the gathering and we highly discourage its use. If you have a beer or glass of wine in your tent and are not “walking around with a beer in your hand,” you could probably drink unnoticed, however we highly discourage any intoxication and drunkenness. Our event is endeavoring to encourage us all to find lifestyle choices leading to a joyful life without the need of intoxicants to feel ‘high’ but rather to get ‘high on life’ with yoga, music, breathing, ecstatic dance and so forth.
We discourage the use of drugs of any kind except those prescribed by a doctor.
There are no dogs or animals permitted at the event.
