Above & Beyond, the legendary trio with some of the most memorable songs and successful label Anjunabeats, have announced a new festival called Group Therapy Weekender on July 27 and 28 at the Gorge Amphitheater, one of the most spectacular venues in the world.
Ever since Above & Beyond’s sold out ABGT250 event at the Gorge in 2017, fans have been begging for a return to the magical Amphitheater in George, Washington, and the trio have responded with the creation of a new summer festival, featuring two nights of good old fashioned Anjunafamily fun under the stars and the finest talent in Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep.
I went to ABGT250 and it was my best event to date. The atmosphere is wonderful, the people are cool and the view (if you’re in Terrace/Premier camping) is incredible. Ever since that show two years ago, Jono, Tony and Paavo have been quietly plotting their return.
Above & Beyond explained: “The ABGT milestone shows will continue to make their way around the world, giving fans in different locations the chance to experience them. But we couldn’t let that stop us from coming back to The Gorge, our new spiritual home. By creating this new “Group Therapy Weekender” we hope, with your help, to recapture the same magic at this incredible venue.”
For first access to the best-priced tickets, fans are encouraged to sign up for a special Pre-sale, which opens 10am PT on Wednesday, Feb 6. You will also be able to purchase a camping pass along with your event ticket. Sign up at aboveandbeyond.nu/gtw
The full lineup will be announced in coming weeks. Saturday afternoon will take place in the inimitable surrounds of The Gorge’s main amphitheatre from 1pm till 1am, where Anjunabeats label stars past, present and future will take us from day to night. Anjunadeep take charge of proceedings on the Sunday in the adjacent Gorge Meadow from 11am till 10:30pm, the imprint’s current crop of top flight deep house talent providing the soundtrack for a day of deep decompression and higher states of consciousness.
