Don't you find the constant stream of social media, blazing smart TVs in your house and even people messaging you via messenger tiring sometimes?
The modern world forces us to be everywhere every second, pressuring us to keep up with events in real time. We are so used to this trend that when offline, we often get an overwhelming fear that we are missing out.
Held for the fourth time in İzmir, the Sleep Festival aims to encourage people to put down their phones and return to good old face-to-face interaction. Between Oct. 5 and 7, the festival will offer participants a chance to escape from the clutches of digital addictions and the dependency caused by rapidly expanding technology by allowing them to take a 48-hour hiatus from their digital devices.The festival will ban electronics while offering participants a chance to consume natural products, play forgotten street games, read books in the heavenly scenic views of nature in Kaynaklar and hike in the tranquility of the countryside, all while enjoying time far removed from the information overload of the digital age.
Due to great interest, the festival is being held for the second time this year. For the 4th Sleep Festival, 3,644 people around Turkey applied. Since space is limited, İzmir's Buca Municipality will hold a lottery to select the lucky 200 participants and their plus ones.
Describing the festival as a "digital detox," Buca Mayor Levent Priştina spoke highly of the organization's aims to open natural lines of communication outside the digital world to create an optimal space for face-to-face communication.
