After a weekend at The Gorge Amphitheater in celebration of 250 episodes of Group Therapy Radio in 2017, Above & Beyond prepares to return for the inaugural edition of what's set to be the annual Group Therapy Weekender. The Anjunafamily gathering will take place at the scenic location this weekend, July 27-28 and is amongst the most anticipated events of the year for fans of the UK supergroup.
A star-studded lineup of talent across the Anjunabeats and Anjunadeep imprints are slated to make appearances. Saturday's lineup boasts a performance from Above & Beyond themselves, world exclusive ALPHA 9 b2b Spencer Brown, Andrew Bayer showcasing sounds from his upcoming Paralells EP, and sets from Audien, Gabriel & Dresden, GRUM, Ilan Bluestone, Jason Ross, Qrion and Tinlicker.
Day two of the weekend's festivities kick off with a Flow State yoga set from Above & Beyond, followed by a showcase of the deeper side of the bands's arsenal of artists on the Anjunadeep imprint. Ben Böhmer and Cubicolor are set to make live performances at the Gorge alongside b2b sets from James Grant & Jody Wisternoff and Marsh & Nox Vahn. Standalone sets are to follow by Eli & Fur, Luttrell, and Yotto.
Ahead of the event, organizers have announced daytime programming at Gorge Meadow for Anjunafamily to connect and experience the weekend together. Day-rave specialists Daybreaker are hosting a special rise and shine wellness program + dance party to get things kickstarted on Saturday. Artist meet & greets and exclusive panels amongst Anjuna personnel are on the docket, including a production Q&A with Jason Ross, "A State of Anjuna" panel with label heads Gareth and Duncan, A&R-focused demo drop, an intimate conversation between Tony McGuinness and fan favorite Seven Lions, and many more.
