It’s our 10th Anniversary of A-Fest!
Since its inception in 2010, A-Fest has brought together some of the world’s brightest minds in some of the world’s most beautiful locations including Costa Rica, Maui, Bali, Dominican Republic, Thailand, Croatia, Mexico and Greece.
Our 10th event in A-Fest history took place last month in the gorgeous setting of Mykonos, Greece.
This event was incredibly special for us, as it was our largest event in A-Fest history and we also had one of the strongest speaker lineups. It’s ignited a serious flame in our bellies for making this next A-Fest even better than ever before.
But that wasn’t the only reason it was really special for us.
A-Fest Greece was our 10th Anniversary of A-Fest event, marking a huge milestone in the evolution of the event, which was birthed in Costa Rica in 2010 by Founder of Mindvalley, Vishen Lakhiani, and his team.
Vishen started A-Fest rather accidentally as a way to inject some adventure and sense of community into his life. Now 6 years on, Vishen and the entire Mindvalley team are so happy to see A-Fest take a life of its own, grow and evolve at an extraordinary rate.
To celebrate, take a virtual trip around the world with us to Hawaii, Costa Rica, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Bali, Thailand, Croatia and Greece with photo highlights from our 10 A-Fest events all over the world since 2010.
You might even spot a few familiar faces.
Over the years we’ve welcomed into our tribe attendees from over 40 different countries (at each event there are generally around 30 countries represented), and people from all walks of life — actresses, NFL and NBA players, teachers, inventors, astronauts, best-selling authors, world-renowned speakers, and more. In 2013 the event expanded from one event per year with 250 attendees, to two events per year with around 400 attendees attending each event.
Past speakers have included people like; Emmy and Golden Globe Award Winning Actress and Founder of Give Love Haiti Patricia Arquette, American Therapist, Self-help Author & Motivational Speaker Sean Stephenson, Investor and Managing Director of 500 Startups, and Founder of Groupon Asia and SAYS Khailee Ng, Backer of the Ansari X Prize, Astronaut and pioneer in Private Space Travel Anousheh Ansari, Tony Award-winning Creator of Avenue Q Jeff Marx, Broadway actress, and one of the world’s foremost mediation experts Emily Fletcher,Nine-Time #1 New York Times Best-Selling Author (Eat Fat, Get Thin) Dr Mark Hyman, Co-Founder of Google X, Creator of the First Google Glass prototype Tom Chi, world renowned Biohacker Dave Asprey, America’s Best-Selling Food & Nutrition Specialist JJ Virgin, Author of the Culture Blueprint & Former Culture Strategist at Zappos Robert Richman, Star of The Secret Lisa Nichols, American Entrepreneur & Nonfiction Author Chris Guillebeau, New York Times Best-Selling Author & Speaker Gabby Bernstein, world-renowned Intuitive and Spiritual Teacher Sonia Choquette, Founder & CEO of ‘Food Matters’ James Colquhoun and more.
And on that note, we want to thank our incredible global tribe — some of the most amazing people on the planet — for believing in A-Fest, and our vision to create and unite a global tribe of change-makers and visionaries who are driven by epic ideas to impact the world.
When smart people come together, they multiply each other’s potential.
– Vishen Lakhiani
