Deep Tropics Festival in Nashville has established itself as a trailblazer in sustainability among the vast array of music festivals in the United States. With over 500 music festivals, Deep Tropics stands out by showcasing music festival-inspired sustainable fashion at The Deep Tropics’ Market. Teaming up with the environmentally conscious Virgin Hotels Nashville, the festival delivered an eco-friendly musical experience that embodied the spirit of conscious living. It was a celebration of music, fashion, and sustainability all rolled into one.
The festival brought together DJs from all over, including the sensational Eli & Fur, who brought their passion for music to the forefront. Their dark emotive dance anthems mesmerized the crowd, creating an electric atmosphere that captivated everyone in attendance. But it wasn’t just about the music; Deep Tropics also provided an opportunity to connect with emerging talents in the industry, such as Jack Vice Music, a promising music producer and DJ based in Nashville.

The fifth iteration of this boutique festival was held at the stunning Bicentennial Capitol Mall State Park in Nashville’s Germantown neighborhood. Every detail of the festival was meticulously curated to create a one-of-a-kind experience. The stage design, inspired by ancient temples, was a visual marvel, illuminated by intricate lasers, choreographed LED lights, and breathtaking art installations. The combination of music, art, and style created a truly immersive and unforgettable atmosphere.
One of the festival’s standout features was its perfect location, with the venue’s proximity to downtown Nashville and other vibrant districts. It provided festival-goers with the opportunity to explore the city’s thriving music scene and cultural hotspots, adding an extra layer of excitement to the overall experience. Deep Tropics truly understood the importance of creating a memorable weekend not just within the confines of the festival grounds but also within the larger context of the city.
Deep Tropics went above and beyond to become the greenest festival in the US. Initiatives like the non-profit organization Deep Culture aimed to transform self, community, and planet through curated experiences. The festival didn’t stop at being carbon neutral but strived to be a net positive energy and water event, generating more energy and water than it consumed. Sustainability was deeply embedded in every aspect of the festival, from the use of sustainable materials like hempcrete and aircrete in art projects to a comprehensive zero waste initiative that ensured everything was recyclable, compostable, or reusable.
