The Great Beyond will focus on a tighter, communal experience by emphasizing fewer stages and shorter walking distances. The intention is to have everyone go through this together, and strengthen standing relationships, or create new ones along the way. Rest assured, if things get too weird, you’ll still have plenty of space to escape the madness.
