Tales of the magic of the Crescent City of New Orleans stretch back over centuries. It is an enigmatic place where Voodoo, Hoodoo, Witchcraft, and even Christianity blend at a crossroads of spiritual power. With the world in crisis, the magic of New Orleans comes to your home this year with HexFest Livestream 2020 with the Hex Education livestream video platform! On August 7 to 9, 2020, Brian Cain, Christian Day, and the Witches of New Orleans present HexFest: A Weekend of Witchery! The conference opens with an opening Friday evening livestream video ceremony featuring the Dragon Ritual Drummers, two full days of workshops, drumming, and ritual livestreamed online. HexFest has gathered Witches, rootworkers, Voodoo priests, and other magical teachers from within New Orleans and around the world to offer their time-honored wisdom. Between workshops, attendees can join in our Zoom Virtual Video Meet and Greet, where you can see, speak to, and make new friends with presenters and fellow attendees! All workshops, performances, and panels (other than the Zoom Virtual Video Meet and Greet) are available by live right in your web browser with no download required!
Normally, attendees must choose one workshop or panel per time slot, and we’ve always had such fantastic presenters that it’s not an easy choice! With HexFest being livestreaming online this year, attendees will be able to join one live session per time slot, but will have access to all of the others on replay—and can rewatch every session as many times as they want, whenever they want. By attending HexFest online, you get access to 49 workshops, performances, and panels instead of just the usual ten!
Presenters for 2020 hail from across the spectrum of Witchcraft and magic and include Brian Cain, Christian Day, Austin Shippey, Carie Ewers, Christine Stephens, Dragon Ritual Drummers, Elhoim Leafar, Elie Barnes, Ellen Evert Hopman, Fiona Horne, Gemma Gary, Jason Mankey, Jason Miller, Kenya Coviak, Kristoffer Hughes, Lady Rhea, Leanne Marrama, Levi Rowland, Lilith Dorsey, Michael Correll, Mimi Eubanks, Sandra Mariah Wright, Sen Elias, and Witchdoctor Utu.
Whether you’re a beginner or an advanced practitioner, HexFest will help you to discover the secrets of Witchcraft and expand your mastery of the magical arts!
