Pachakutiq Festival on Vis Island

In the immediate vicinity of the center of Komiža, just a ten-minute walk away, lies Kamenica Beach and the Lunatic Beach Club, which will host the innovative Pachakutiq Festival from August 31st to September 3rd. This is the first time it’s being held, and below you can read a bit more about this intriguingly named festival and what you can expect from it.

What's Behind the Name Pachakutiq?

In the Inca Quechua language, Pachakutiq means "the one who turns space and time, bringing about significant changes" or is often translated as "earthshaker." As a festival dedicated to ecology and environmental protection with a focus on safeguarding mountain gorillas, the organizers of this festival donate 10% of ticket proceeds to the International Gorilla Conservation Program. This is why the festival's symbol is a life-sized sculpture of a gorilla, created by the artist Marina Stoponja.\
