Dream of Utopia

invite-only Mediterranean retreat

🌊 5-days of Music, Beach-time, Wellness, Workshops
🌛 25+ International DJs & Live Acts

Back in 2020, we had a dream: Beautiful souls gathering to celebrate life and togetherness; on a secret beach set at the meeting point of the Mediterranean Sea, forests and mountains… For many, that dream became a legend… And soon, we’re coming back together, for our utopian dream’s third chapter…

⛵ Dream of Utopia is a boutique event with only 250 attendees, offering a rich and balanced format. Program is initially flavored as laid back sea-side retreat with more emphasis on wellness activities/workshops. Then towards the weekend, we start focusing on stellar musical acts and celebrations. Invite-only means an intimate atmosphere — you will be surrounded by quality international artists, musicians and their friends…

Venue: Bonjuk Bay

“where magic happens”

Dream of Utopia’s new venue is Bonjuk Bay, which hosts a community of imaginative, aware and like-minded people coming together to celebrate life and share transformational experiences. A loving environment for self-expression and co-creation, so that we can make a positive impact in our lives and the communities we live in through transformation. It’s located in the Gulf of Gökova, a long narrow gulf in Turkish Mediterranean Riviera near the town of Marmaris, part of Muğla province.
