Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in a commune if that commune didn’t devolve into mayhem and criminal indictments like Wild, Wild Country? Wanderlust is coming to San Francisco to answer that question with a two-day yoga and health-food-filled utopia in Golden Gate Park May 4-5.

Fitness festivals have become a thing, with events like City Fit Fest, Dare to Bare, and Virgin Festival of Fitness each planning weekends in the city, but Wanderlust is a slightly different type of fitness festival. While DJ-backed yoga gets star treatment throughout the weekend, Wanderlust includes HIIT classes, meditation, lectures, oodles of food options, and live music dance parties. (The organization has a hype video so you can “learn more.” but it’s mainly nature porn, yoga glamour shots, and a relaxing poem about a tree.)

Like any festival, there are a lot of pricing options. General admission daily tickets are $31.08. If you want to add “scheduled activities” into the mix, you can buy a ticket with one or two scheduled activities for $56.08 or $81.08, respectively. Saturday All-Access passes are $151.08, Sunday All-Access is $126.08, and everything all weekend is $256.08. In case you were wondering about those odd prices, $1.08 from each ticket purchase goes to The Global Fund to fight AIDS through (RED).

The schedule is live, the lineup is posted, and tickets are on sale now.

Wellness travel is a huge industry, but—let’s be honest—it’s not cheap. If you don’t have the funds or the PTO for that retreat in Tulum or Bali, let the party come to you in San Francisco at Wanderlust.
