Date: 30 October 2015, 09.00 am – 10.00 pm
Venue: Rice field at Dusun Gobangan, Desa Giripeni Wates Kulon Progo

This festival is a celebration echoing the land as both a weak and powerful thing. This event combines art between local art that breathes rites and symbolic prayers with contemporary art that are not spared from the spirits of playfulness and innovation. This meeting does not only juxtapose aesthetic diversity but also the diversity of interests, knowledge and a number of identities. In addition to arts community, the festival also celebrates the land with Gabungan Kelompok Tani (Farmers Association), students, village administration, village art activists, community of mothers and so on. Groups involved include: Kesinian, Gapoktan Giripeni, Gejok Lesung Laras Peni, BBDKK, and Wayang Sawah.
