2021 Artists Map

Lacuna Festivals artists come from all over the world and this year we have created a map so that you can see where everyone else is in the world in relation to you.

The 2021 festivals have over 325 artists participating and they are representing 83 different countries. 

How much distance would be covered if you tried to physically visit each artist? 

We hope you have some fun exploring this map. You can zoom in and out, make the map full screen, check out the map legend/key, share the map in Facebook or Twitter and you can even embed it into your personal website or blog!
