Flow Festival is Puna, Hawaii’s premiere music, cultural and sustainability festival.
The festival is founded by Chris Berry who was originally inspired in 2014 when the Big Island’s active lava flow changed directions and threatened to cut off lower Puna from the rest of the island.
The intention remains to enhance the sustainability and unity of our community and warmly welcomes all ages, shapes, sizes, creeds, colors…
We focus on conscious music, progressive thinking speakers, sustainable & holistic life practices and equality among the human race.
We honor Hawaii for its richness in culture and geography.
We dedicate the festival to the Hawaiian Lava Goddess, Pele.
The 3rd annual Flow Fest will feature over 45 artists, speakers, visionaries, workshops, Ceremony, Hula, Cultural presentations and of course the Bana Kuma Prayerformance.
We have grown and are moving to a sacred location known now as Green Lake but also known as the home of the Rainbow goddess and a favorite location of Pele. We are Puna’s premier festival and our intention is to bring together our community and create a life changing experience for all who attend.
Stay tuned as our final lineup will be announced December 1st. Also remember that is is the community and those who attend the festival that create the experience headliners and artists only add to what is already there and created by us.

Dirtwire sits on the back porch of Americana’s future, conjuring up a whirlwind of sound using traditional instrumentation, world percussion, and electronic rhythms. Comprised of David Satori (Beats Antique), Evan Fraser (Hamsa Lila, Stellamara) and Mark Reveley (Jed and Lucia), each performance brings both band and audience to a sonic crossroads of beats, bass, soundscapes, blues, bluegrass, country, African, Asian, Middle Eastern, South and Central American traditions. The result is a rebirth of Americana and a post-millennial psychedelic journey to downhome goodness.
