Mission: Support the Festival Community
Harmonia developed out of an expressed need to address an issue within the festival community: the need for a safe decompression space for individuals undergoing difficult emotional experiences. Based out of Asheville, NC, Harmonia seeks to provide harm reduction services via our Decompression Lounge to East Coast and Midwest events and music festivals.
Our mission of providing a safe and supportive space for festivals has inspired a vision for what our team can contribute to the community based around what we truly value: self empowerment, educated and intentional decision-making, and community support. We offer a wide range of services outside of our signature sanctuary festival space including event and festival operations, promotions, and décor.

Home Grown Heroes
Home Grown Heroes has created an educational kit for kids to pollenate awareness about growing food and good nutrition.
Having Harmonia at our event allowed for a more appropriate delegation of our human resources, so that our medic and security teams could stay alert and active on the ground while the Harmonia team could tend to the cases that required more long-term emotional support. The team remained in high spirits in the face of whatever came to them, and participants who engaged with the space & team provided positive feedback around its positive impact on their own personal experience. Needless to say, Harmonia is providing this community with a much-needed and long-awaited service that will create a more cohesive, harmonious experience for individuals and the collective alike.—
