A-Fest is an invite-only transformational event that gathers a global tribe of change-makers and visionaries who are driven by epic ideas to impact the world. Take the first step to joining us in paradise by applying for your invite below. The upcoming A-Fest is taking place in Ibiza, Spain, Wednesday, May 17 until Saturday, May 20, 2017.
What amazes our attendees the most is the sheer quality of the extraordinary individuals we gather; we attract the likes of Inc. 500 CEOs, best-selling authors, award-winning artists, bio-hacking innovators, TED speakers, game-changing entrepreneurs, award-winning business owners, star employees and more. In fact, the professional speakers and coaches that take the stage at A-Fest don’t just come here to teach, but they are also part of the tribe, fully immersed as attendees themselves.
Like an intimate soul-searching getaway, A-Fest lets you learn, grow and forge deep friendships with amazing people who will help nurture and support your grand visions. We call these Magical Moments – our team designs experiences that take you through a wide range of emotions and revelations that result in profound connections with other participants at a level unlike any other event – or even personal experiences – you’ve ever attended.
The result? You may walk away with new business partners, new best friends, and who knows – even your soulmate. This is what makes A-Fest truly unique.
Experiencing A-Fest gives you a personal revelation that inspires you to give back to the world in unique and impactful ways and push humanity forward.
Designed to teach you how to bring out the most of your capabilities as a human being, A-Fest shares the wisdom you wish they had taught you in school. Whatever it is you do – whether you’re a seasoned entrepreneur or looking for your next business idea – the experience will teach you to do more, accomplish more, and get to your goals faster, while having the lifestyle you desire, having tons of fun and simply enjoying life.
Almost every successful visionary will tell you the same thing: their secret to success isn’t some genius business strategy or the latest marketing knowledge – it’s always the result of awakening “something within”. At A-Fest, you’ll connect with highly successful people who are more than willing to share the mindset shifts, personal growth practices and key learnings that took their lives to the next level.
Our speaker line-up have included Lisa Nichols, Dave Logan, Patricia Arquette, Emily Fletcher, Lynn Twist, Tom Chi, Anousheh Ansari, Sam Cawthorn and Kute Blackson. Explore our Tribe members page to discover the personalities we attract at A-Fest.
Learn how to envision epic ideas and set amazing goals for the kind of impact you want to create in the world and the life you want to live.
Design, adopt and apply the right mindset, emotional state and thought mastery to be happy, even before you attain your goals.
Create strong bonds with other brilliant people so that you have the right networks, support structures and friendships to keep you soaring.
When you attend A-Fest, you’re not just attending one event. You’re joining our global community of brilliant minds who meet regularly around the world via organised and impromptu gatherings, and support each other in their journey to make an impact on the world.
One of our most memorable gatherings was held in photographer Phillip Dixon’s estate in Venice, Los Angeles. Over 200 people showed up for a mesmerizing evening of conversation, drinks and impromptu performances from artists such as Malek Houlihan. Speaker Sean Stephenson ended up proposing to his girlfriend at the event. For the after party, hotelier and AirBnB strategist Chip Conley gave us his hotel rooftop.
That’s just a small taste of what happens when the influential, brilliant and fun people within our tribe come together throughout the year. The relationships that form at A-Fest stretch beyond networking – they are intimate and personal. Once you attend you'll never feel alone again.
And that’s why we’re very selective about the people we invite to join us and carefully curate our Tribe.
A beautiful setting is a given at every A-Fest – we’ve defied conventional conferences by making it a point to take your experience out of formal halls to jaw-dropping resorts that feature breathtaking views right outside your room, gorgeous facilities, stunning beaches and amazing offsite locations. We believe that such locations play a crucial part in helping you connect with the rest of the tribe.
And like being at a festival – you’ll get to dance the night (and day) away at incredible parties and go on breathtaking excursions, all in the midst of a paradise location.
From bonfires on the beaches of Costa Rica, surfing and watching the sunset over cocktails in Maui, reflecting before ancient Mayan ruins in Mexico, and witnessing a historical cultural performance in an 11th century Balinese temple; to sailing on a catamaran cruise to party in the Caribbean Sea in Dominican Republic, and entering a magical hidden “Neverland” in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – A-Fest is dedicated to creating unique experiences and celebrations that you will carry with you for the rest of your life.
A-Fest is more than an event – it’s a movement. Because of the profound impact it leaves on people, we’ve noticed artists and speakers waiving their fees. A-list speakers who normally leave immediately after their session stay for the full event instead. And a vast majority of participants become inspired to change the world in even bigger ways.
Best of all, we donate a substantial portion of our proceeds to innovative causes since 2011. When you invest in the festival, you don’t just experience an incredible and memorable four days specially planned and designed by our team – you’re also contributing to a great cause.
Past beneficiaries have included Patricia Arquette’s GiveLove, dedicated to improving global sanitation; Lynne Twist’s Pachamama Alliance, a foundation that helps preserve over 8 million acres of rainforest in the Ecuadorian Amazon; and Tiffany Person’s Shine on Sierra Leone, dedicated to creating local sustainable programs to promote thriving self-sufficent communities.
Since 2013, proceeds from A-Fest have also benefited the X Prize Foundation, an educational nonprofit organization whose mission is to bring about radical breakthroughs for the benefit of humanity through incentivised worldwide challenges and competitions.
A-Fest attendees also have the chance to make a difference through Give Back Day. Happening after each A-Fest event, this full-day, community-focused initiative is designed to give attendees the opportunity to participate in a project which gives back to the local community in which the event takes place. Often a highlight of A-Fest, past projects have included planting gardens and building structures, beautification of local community centres, fundraising efforts, providing consulting services to small business owners, leading movement, learning and play activities with local children, and more.

Many A-Fest attendees call it the most exciting experience of their lives. Why? Maybe it’s the paradise locations. Maybe it’s the amazing people. Maybe it’s the Magical Moments. Or maybe we’re just really, really good at throwing parties ;-)

What most amazes A-Fest participants is the sheer quality of our participants. Dr. Srikumar Rao, a highly popular MBA lecturer who’s spoken at Google and has been featured in Businessweek and Fortune, says he was “humbled” by the people he met at the event. Lisa Nichols, a renowned life coach, best-selling author and featured guru in The Secret, said this was perhaps the only event where she doesn’t just fly in to speak – she stays throughout the event because of the people.
