After months of searching, seeking guidance from indigenous tribes, and negotiating with local governing bodies, the Global Eclipse have landed on the site for their 2020 Eclipse Gathering. The new home sits in the province of Neuquen, Argentina, which is centrally located between the major airport cities of San Carlos de Bariloche (2.5 hours), Pucon, Chile (3 hours), and the Neuquen Capital (4 hours).
The site rests on the Catan Lil River encircled beautiful landscapes of mountain ranges, rock outcroppings, and rolling hills. Eclipse organizers describe the scenery as complete “with wide open skies, lush vegetation, and water features that will be perfect for a cosmic celebration.” They also describe the climate as “warm during the day and cool at night,” so attendees can expect similar conditions as Oregon Eclipse. Keep in mind that the event’s dates, which fall between December 10-16, 2020, makes it summer time in Argentina because of the hemisphere shift.
Organizers of the Global Eclipse, which falls under the ruling body of seven of the world’s transcendental festivals, also expressed their excitement and gratitude over finding the new home: “We’re grateful for the local event producers and provincial officials who are joining the team to make this event a safe space for creating a magical experience. We are very much looking forward to gathering with you once again!”
Experience Passes will be available for $300 (plus fees) on April 23. More information can be found on the Global Eclipse’s official website. Watch the announcement video and read the official statement below.
