Gypsy Ghosts

Like grease on a fire… the Gypsy Ghosts stumbled upon a very unique sound. This combination of players and diverse musical influences created an honest, swampy style of gypsy/pirate rock that people can’t resist. In one epic year of writing and rehearsing, the Gypsy Ghosts have accomplished much: Recorded 13 original songs, won $4000 worth of recording time at EMAC studio from 98.1 FREE FM, played many live shows, and are currently nominated for a London Music Award. The Gypsy Ghosts, with their unique and high energy show, are suited to play any stage.

When you see them play, the Gypsy Ghosts are the epitome of joy. You can see it in their faces, you can feel it in the air; these guys love life, love each other, and they love the music.

Gypsy Ghosts will be performing at the Spirits of the Earth Festival on Thursday night.

Autocratic Oath

Autocratic Oath is a Canadian three piece melodic metal band from London Ontario. The band was formed back in 2012 and has undergone some recent changes. This will be Autocratic Oath's 2nd time playing Spirits of the Earth Festival and they are super excited to be joining the list of other fabulous musicians attending the festival.

Their songs are based in myth and legend laced with wicked beats and soaring melodies. Back to rock Spirit Fest with a changed line-up and hopefully less rain! Kristin Vardon returns to supply the Vocals and the Bass, with Rob Wright slaying the Guitar, and new to the Autocratic Oath line-up Edwin Garcia killing it on the Drums!

Indigo Crush

Tammy and Gene started singing together in August 2013. When they started playing songs at local open jams, friends began suggesting songs from all different genres.
As their song list grew, Indigo Crush was formed. You name it, they sing it!

Check them out on FACEBOOK, or listen to their music on YOUTUBE.

Indigo Crush will be performing at the Spirits of the Earth Festival on Wednesday night, and will also be hosting impromptu Open Mic Jams thoughout the week, so bring your instruments and voices, and let's make music together!


FoxWood Rhythms

Let's first admit that we all like to sing. We often sing in the car, while having a shower and so on, but the sensation that you are singing in a public place, knowing that everybody is watching you is quite different. Singing takes your troubles away and is relaxing, that's why so many people get addicted to it.

Tameika and Fox will be spinning some fun on the opening night of the festival. Karaoke is always full of fun and great music! There are a lot of great undiscovered singers out there. A little courage and some back up music, and you’re off!

If you really don't like to sing, well you can always get up on the dance floor and shake it. Being a singer myself, it is always great when people are dancing in front of you. Come join us and release all of your stresses from the mundane world, in preparation of an amazing spiritual experience that the week ahead has in store for you!

Karaoke Dance Party hosted by Fox and Tameika will be on Tuesday night.


Enchanted Forest Feast & Bardic Competition

This year we have decided that we will be hosting an Enchanted Forest Feast which will be a potluck event featuring a rottisserie. This is magickal hospitality at its best and is INCLUDED in your registration! Our entertainment for the feast will be our annual Bardic Competition. So start writing, singing, dancing, or preparing your choice of entertainment for the evening! We encourage everyone to help create the atmosphere and participate in the fun by dressing in costume. We are also looking for some volunteers, to help setup/cleanup,and serve great food, and fantastic beverages to our rowdy horde.

Song, Poetry, Dance, Drama, Storytelling etc. Come and show off your talents.

The Enchanted Forest Feast & Bardic Competition will be on Friday night.

Elemental Tributes

In 2007 we introduced our concept of bringing ritual to the revel. This was greeted with enthusiasm, and liberation as everyone encircled the fire awe-inspired. We feel that instead of the festival hosting a ritual or two, that we would transform the entire festival into a ritual all it’s own. We strongly encourage everyone to invoke the element of the night. Wear the colors, dance the movement, or don yourself with accessories. We have devoted each day of the festival to a specific element, and place our workshop themes accordingly. All guests are encouraged to dress in the color/theme of the day.

NEW this year we would like to introduce our ELEMENTAL TRIBES! We would like to raise the bar a little higher, and open the doors wide for every single member of our community to become an active participant, utilizing their own unique talents. This has lead us to designate every single attendee to an Elemental Tribe for the week. You will have an opportunity to connect to that particular element deep within yourself, and connect with other members of our community. This will build a strong foundation. Inspiring each other as you fuel the light within yourself.

Just to clarify... the Revel Tributes are NOT a scheduled “performance”. The nightly tributes are geared towards our late night revelers and will take place considerably late. The idea is that YOU invoke the “element of the night” in YOUR own way, and we ALL as a group give honor to that element with our own personal connection/flare.

We will be invoking the elements on the following nights:

Wednesday – Water
Thursday – Earth
Friday – Air
Saturday – Fire
