One Vibration is a small electronic-based festival in Durango, Colorado and was the first festival with a permanent TreeNet installation from TreeNet Willy's. Between the permanent installation and the multiple SpaceNets rigged up across the grounds, these nets have become one of the main attractions of the event. One Vibration 2019 was also the debut of our trampoline framed nets, which are portable and easily moved around the grounds to kick back and watch the music.
Sonic Bloom is an electronic based festival based at beautiful Hummingbird Ranch, Colorado. In June 2018, the TreeNet Willy's crew got the opportunity to create one of the first permanent art installations in the middle of hammock city at the festival. With the whole platform illuminated at night and stage 2 about 40ft away, this TreeNet installation became the centerpiece for not only Sonic Bloom, but for all events being held at Hummingbird Ranch.
June of 2019 we were invited back to another permanent TreeNet installation by the Meadow Stage. This platform consisted of an easy access entry ramp for the kiddos and was a great place to kick back in the shade. This was also the debut of the dome and the beginning to our new collaboration relationship with String Theory Art Productions and Ed Apples.

RHYTHMS OF RIMBA
The Rhythms of Rimba is an environmental awareness and educational festival hosted in Kota Kinabalu, Borneo, Malaysia. For 2018, I sent a couple of SpaceNets over to the event with my buddy Brian Mosbaugh, who rigged them up over a bamboo platform on the ocean for everyone to enjoy. With the leftover paracord, the remaining bamboo sections were filled as an additional hangout area. We were honored to be a part of this event and help promote a sustainable way to enjoy the nature and the outdoors.

The ARISE music festival let us create a temporary net for the children's area, providing a shady place for the kids to play and hang out. Per request, we used ratchets for anchors, allowing us to return the grounds to their original use. For the 2019 event, we placed 4 tramp hammocks around the grounds for people to use at will.

MEOW WOLF'S TAOS VORTEX
For summer of 2019, Meow Wolf hosts an immersive interactive art and music festival calles Taos Vortex. Held at the local downtown park, we ended up setting a hammock village under the large shaded trees between the two stages. With 5 net hammocks set up, there was enough space for nearly 25 people to kick back and watch the music, art, and performances.

FAR OUT FACTORY
IRL Art holds a yearly collective event in Denver filled with artists from all over the state called Far Out Fatory. For the 2019 event, we had the opportunity to spread numerous hammock hangouts across the event area for all to enjoy. We set up a few hammocks under Photonic Bliss' Light Flower, which provided the perfect centerpiece for everyone to get their mind melted.

Electric Forest is one of the biggest festivals in the nation and a perfect place for our tree oriented culture and experience. We were able to place a small hangout area consisting of tramp hammocks and spacenets scattered around the area. We look forward to setting up our dome and other string installations for the 2020 event in addition to our hammock village.

Envision is a week long festival located in the heart of the Costa Rican jungle. As one of the most immersive festivals in the world, we had the opportunity to create a handful of net installations across the grounds where people could kick back, listen to their favorite music, or check out some inspiring and informative workshops and discussions.
Here are some of our collaboration partners:
STRING THEORY ART PRODUCTIONS
String Art Installations
String Theory Art Productions creates large scale custom string installations for any given area. We like to collaborate with START Productions for many installations including our hammock village and the Neuro Net Dome.
Projection Mapping, Pixel Mapping, and Programming
Ed Apples brings light, color, and movement to our installations. By using lasers and projections, he has thousands of programmed patterns and designs for any piece. This truly makes the Neuro Net come together, as the laser moving through the wormholes look like brain synapses.
Custom Hammock and Shade Cloth Artist & Builder
Bex started helping out with our hammock villages for rent by adding her custom tye-dye hammocks and shade cloths. By adding these large shaded structures over our hammock area, we can make large, one-of-a-kind hangout areas that is slowly becoming a festival necessity.
SPACE AGE SLACKLINES
Slackline Parks, Workshops, and Performances
Based out of Boulder, Colorado, Space Age Slacklines was founded in April of 2018 by CU students Caleb Beavers and Eli Ellis. We work with Space Age Slacklines on the UV sky tapestries and other highline oriented projects.
SAS teaches workshops for almost any type of slackline level and style, including traditional, rodeo line, or fire line. Whether it’s highline performances, slackline parks, or workshops, SAS possessed all of the gear and knowledge required for any type of set up.
Net Builder & Designer, Professional Rigger, and Construction
Andres is one of the most experienced net weaver around. Starting in the early 2000's, Castle also creates some of the most unique and refined net products. Working as a professional rigger and having an arborist background, Castle is one of the leaders in net ethics, construction, and overall mastery of the art.
-FUTURE PROJECT MODELS-
As we get into visual art and other bigger installations, we've started to come up with some small model ideas that represent some of our bigger goals. Thomas Upppenkamp does many of the 3D dreamcatchers while the rest of these models come from Charlie Sand who can make almost anything within a given structure. You can find more of their other cool ideas @charlies_webs & @tf.kamp on instagram.
Given the right event or project, we plan to create all of these on a huge scale. If you have a place or project that may work, please contact us!
