The Ninth Isle 2020 | Ferry Terminals | Thursday, 23. January 2020

The Ninth Isle is a place where eutopia 
Join us as one of our 150 guests for a four day weekend of remote island frolicking, beach clean-ups, dinners and live electronic music performances, from Thursday to Monday, 23rd - 27th January 2020 in the Andaman Islands, India. Producers and live performers Jacob Groening, O/Y , ĀRĀ, Troja , Robosonic  and other beloved artists will be showcasing their sounds throughout our stay. 
The hope that we have for this gathering is that our actions will raise awareness about the critical problems facing all of us as a result of ocean plastic accumulation. We are working together with New York based Organisation Parley for the Oceans as well as local initiative "The Waste People" to ensure that the beach clean-ups are appropriately managed and documented, with the intention of making an annual celebration of this activist-event.
° Return ferry to Port Blair (main airport for the islands)
° 4 nights accommodation, a short walk / bike ride from the island’s beaches and event venues
° Survival pack including a detailed event program
° Made-to-order breakfast
° Music after dinner for later night, open air, beachside dancing
We will release the name of the island to ticket holders within a month of the event. The island has a population of less than 5000 people and is only 15sqkm in area - it also has a fragile ecosystem that balances tourism and resources. Some would argue that this balance has already been lost and that the island's natural state is threatened to a point that continued inhabitation may be impossible. Keeping the island's identity a secret is important to protect this ecosystem as has been advised by locally based NGO representatives.
The island’s natural beauty offers
White sand, kilometre long beaches untouched by human development
Excellent snorkelling, diving and shore/sea fishing possible throughout the day
Jungle walks, secret beach hikes, snorkelling, diving, sea fishing and many places to explore
Restaurants offering locally grown/caught ingredients and prepared fresh.
° A visa is required by most foreign nationals visiting India
° There are mosquitos on the island however, no mosquito-borne diseases have been reported
° There is no / very little internet access on the Andaman Islands.
