Festivals have become part and parcel of many peoples’ lives in the 21st Century. Many people from all over the world make annual pilgrimages to their favourites, whether they’re local or international. It’s an adventure, an opportunity to meet new people and a gateway to letting go of one’s inhibitions. Some festivals seem to have the power to change lives, offering a safe, non-judgmental space where people feel liberated and are able step into whatever their ‘true self’ is… or whatever they want their true self to be. 

Back in March DLTM flew to Thailand to attend Colours Of Love, a gathering of friends, new and old, in the stunning setting of Koh Phangan – an island off the east coast of Thailand. During its week-long run, the festival (run by two inspiring souls, Wild Sirenda, who we featured on the site last year) seemed to instigate a constant flow of transformative energy. It was a special event full of colour (of course), great music, performances, art and a warm, friendly group of people out to enjoy life and create a harmonious environment for everyone to express themselves. Here are a few choice photos from our time there…
