Le francais suit...
Altered Forest is an annual festival in the beautiful hills of Canada's "belle province," Quebec. Let your inner child play and explore new adventures!

Our community focused is on the Canadian and North American talent pool. There are amazing and talented artists, producers and DJs all around us. It's time to have an event that supports locals as much as possible! We will have quality sound designed to delight your ears, day and night!

But it doesn't end there! Have a tasty snack at the Altered Bodega, browse some wares at the Altered Market or maybe do some yoga with a lovely instructor at the Oasis. Take a snooze in one of the many hammocks available. If you are feeling up to the challenge, take a quest and go on an adventure!

The Altered Forest and Altered State team has thrown many great indoor and outdoor events in the last decade. As usual, we will focus on the local scene, flow, intention, timing and the community to provide an experience to remember. Come help us make memories at Altered Forest 2019!!

We are excited to welcome you to the Altered Forest in Duclos, QC! Located just north of picturesque Gatineau Park, Cabane dans les bois - Cabin in the Woods offers you the chance to dance the night away surrounded by the natural beauty of the Outaouais. This magical playground will offer you the quintessential Ottawa/Gatineau experience: Deep nature just a short(ish) drive from the city!

The campsite offers ample flat camping, a lovely sandy beach along a lake, and walking trails to get lost (or found) in. Best of all we can GET LOUD! This site allows us to best utilize the sound system and ensure everyone has an excellent aural experience, including the neighbours.

Mindful AUDIO Design
Building on that experience, as well as best practices from events in Europe, this festival will feature high quality equalized sound systems meant specifically for BASS MUSIC.
Altered Forest loves adventures… and to keep in this spirit, we are running quests and games once again!

The Altered Quest is Yours to Complete!
In the Altered Forest, not all is as it seems! What’s hidden behind the music? What mysteries are set to be uncovered? Grab some friends, form a party, and head straight off for psy-venture!

Find the Quest Master to get started! Do it all at once or take your time! We will have little extras too all in the spirit of fun and good times! Let’s PLAY!

As usual, the Altered Forest crew and D-Lights (Dolly Grech) will ensure the forest looks extra special. Dolly and her lighting crew make the whole area sparkle with magic and intention. The night time will have a fantastic arrangement of lights and illuminated decor. We hope you will enjoy what we have in store. Who knows what creatures and mind-bending objects you will encounter in the Altered Forest!

Yoga & Chill Space

There will be a radiant chill space for you to pause and breathe deeply. Yoga classes will be available as well as other services. Take that moment for yourself.

MindSafe will be on site to keep it chill and safe. Trained to chat in the right way at the right time for each circumstance. Need an ear? Come here :)

Mind Safe:

We’ve all been to events and have seen the mess that can be left post-party. The natural beauty of The Altered Forest shall not be sullied by slobbery! So we’re enlisting your help to make sure it doesn’t happen. Of course we’ll arm you with the tools to make it easy. Everyone gets a black and a clear garbage bag, the black one for refuse and the clear one for recycling.

Washrooms are shared by Everyone!
The Toilets will be cleaned throughout the festival, but let’s all do our part to make sure they’re as nice to use as possible!

Bring in, Bring Out!
Brought something with you? Take it when you leave! We’re close by a provincial park, so let’s abide by the same rules and leave no trace.

Garbage Cans Abound!
Refuse and recycling receptacles will be placed all over the festival grounds, so do your part by keeping clean! Help us out even further by tossing out any trash you come across during the party!

Butt Cans Abound Too!
We hate dirty butts and we can not lie! Those over ravers can’t deny, let’s ensure they aren’t littering the Altered Forest floor yo! Butt/Roach cans will be all over the festival grounds and clearly marked for easy use!

Inclusivity & Positivity

The Altered Forest is a happy place that welcomes everyone. We have zero tolerance for Sexism, Racism, Homophobia, Transphobia, Harassment, Ableism, or General Hatefulness of any kind. People come to have festivals to have fun, not to be made to feel unsafe or marginalized. So don’t be a jerk, or else you’ll be asked to leave.

Safe Space

The Psytribe is a safe community, and we want to keep it that way! Each Altered Forest team member will be easily identifiable & available to help you in the event that you feel unsafe. We will be there to listen, to offer a safe physical space, or to simply hang out with you for a while.

MAKE NO MISTAKE: Predatory behaviour of any kind will not be tolerated. Gross people will be asked to leave or will be physically removed if necessary.

First Aid / Naloxone

Altered Forest staff are trained in First Aid as well as Naloxone. We will have both medical aid kits as well as Naloxone kits on site at the event to ensure we have the safest, most amazing time possible! We’re ready for all your nicks and bruises, just in case something more serious happens, civilization is not far away!

Help us further improve the wellness of the event by Educating yourself about the Dangers of Fentanyl. Stop Overdose Ottawa is a great resource to learn just how prevalent and deadly Fentanyl is. Before joining us for the festival, why not give this website on overdose prevention a read? If all of us are educated about the warning signs, the safer we’ll all be.
General Safety

Earplugs = Ear Peace! Things will get loud! Make sure to give your ears the love they deserve.

Watch your feet in the Woods! Don’t let a stubbed toe or cut ankle get in the way of your dancing! Careful where you step and wear footwear when possible!

Be Careful When Swimming! Taking a dip is encouraged, but make sure to do so safely! Don’t swim alone, and if you feel a little tipsy, maybe stick to the shallow end, yeah?

Ticks are in Season! We’re out in the woods after all! Make sure to watch for ticks, and wear protection when you can!

The Sun will Burn! And it takes no prisoners! Protect your skin with sunscreen!

Drink Lots of Water! It’s Summer, silly! Make sure to stay hydrated to regulate your temperature and keep your dance feet movin!

Conception audio consciente

L'un des points forts de notre événement 2019 a été la conception sonore. S'appuyant sur cette expérience, ainsi que sur les meilleures pratiques issues des événements en Europe, ce festival proposera des systèmes de sonorisation égalisés de haute qualité spécialement conçus pour le BASS MUSIC!


Altered Forest aime les aventures ... et pour garder dans cet esprit, nous courons des quêtes et des jeux encore une fois!

La quête altérée est à vous! Dans la forêt altérée, tout n'est pas comme il semble! Qu'est-ce qui se cache derrière la musique? Quels mystères sont à découvrir? Prenez quelques amis, formez une groupe, et partez tout de suite à la psy-venture!

Trouvez le maître de quête pour commencer! Faites-le tout à la fois ou prenez votre temps! Nous aurons aussi des petits extras dans l'esprit de s'amuser et de bons moments! Jouons!!


Déco et lumières

De retour pour leur deuxième année, Dems et Doll seront les artistes vedettes de chez Altered Forest! Leur style de rue vif et coloré fera honneur à notre scène et sera diffusé tout au long du festival. Préparez-vous à une magie sérieuse de ce duo dynamique!

Comme d'habitude, l'équipe d'Altered Forest et D-Lights (Dolly Grech) fera en sorte que la forêt soit particulièrement spéciale. Nous espérons que vous apprécierez ce que nous avons en magasin. Qui sait quelles créatures et quels objets hallucinants vous rencontrerez dans la forêt altérée!
