OUR VISION:

We invite all to come dance, relax, join our community workshops and explore the wonder for 4 days and 3 nights in observance of the Gemini Sun+Sagittarius Full Moon of June 2017. Sacred Earth Open-Air, our longest running festival, is created as a “Cosmic Condensate” in which our music, motion, light and love form a structure in space and time to create  a microcosmic celebration of the infinite. 3 stages of world-class visuals & art and 70+ musicians from all over the world to take you on a voyage through space, hyperspace and the dreamtime through Goa trance, psytrance, full-on, neuro, progressive trance, forest, hi-tech, ambient, PsyDM, world, downtempo, atmospheric, experimental and everything in between.

Come celebrate this phenomenon of the cosmos with The Chilluminati as we continue in our twelfth year of bringing psychedelic trance music, tradition and culture to North America.

 

WE PROVIDE:

3 stages of sound, visuals and light, 4 days and 3 nights of camping in the glorious Missouri Ozarks about 1 hour south of St. Louis at Astral Valley. Multiple campsites, natural beauty including caves and a stream on over 200 acres. Full vending onsite including art from leading regional artists.

 

YOU PROVIDE:

A tent, preparation for rugged conditions, enough food and beverages for the weekend (or some cash – food and beverages will be available for sale, including alcohol for 21+)

ABSOLUTELY NO GLASS, NO PETS and NO RENEGADE SOUND! (this includes sound systems at your campsite!)

Please respect the venue by keeping the grounds free of litter.

**This is a LEAVE NO TRACE EVENT**

Become part of the community. Help the planet, and help us. Pick up after yourself. Leave the site, and our reputation as a community, better than you found it.

 

Things for your eyes:

 

Live VJ and video mapped projection stage design

 

By definition, synesthesia is the merging together of senses.Based in the southeast of USA, Psynesthesia is the psychedelic UV design project of Krikett. She has been involved with many forms of artistic expression since early childhood, and was always drawn to anything bright, unusual, and otherworldly.In 2011 the concept was born, and thus began an ever expanding atmosphere enhancement project, inspired through attending numerous gatherings of many varieties, and motivated to continuously enhance the experiential movement for all who attend.

 

NephilNine is the brainchild of New York artist Sue Helfrich, creating event decorations and installation art since 2004. A classically-trained artist with a degree in Fashion Design from Fashion Institute of Technology (NYC, USA), Helfrich is deeply involved in each NephilNine installation:

“What drew me to decorating events was a passion for immersing someone in a fantastic environment. As a child, I dreamed of being able to explore the surreal worlds portrayed in fantasy/science fiction movies and TV shows. Now I enjoy being able to create worlds of my own design, even if only for a night, so that others may explore them.”

The NephilNine repertoire includes stretched spandex forms, a variety of geometric and organic 3-D UV sculptures, and large-scale string installations. These often psychedelic creations define events ranging from underground dance parties and major music festivals to private ceremonies and celebrations all over the world. NephilNine’s art is primarily made of layered cut fabric shapes. The fabric, which is often combined with other types sculpture, shapes space and light, surrounding performers and participants in beautiful environments.

Each space is different. No two installations are alike. Each is a study of Impermanence, Improvisation, and Growth. Lighting provided by other artists adds changing dimension. NephilNine takes the entirety of the space into consideration when designing, including the environmental impact of the materials used.

 

Immersive, interactive visuals

Logic Bomb
12:00 am - 3:30 am
Z-Plane Records .:. Stockholm, Sweden


Logic Bomb are fine purveyors of Psychedelic stereophonic audio. The Swedish maestros of sonic science. Psy Trance multi layered grooves and atmospherics with soul and power. A deep kaleidoscopic journey through rich electronics like only they know how.Jonas and Johann started making music in the mid 90 ́s but it was probably the release if their first album, “Headware” on Spiral Trax in 2000 that got them noticed.

Tip World quickly picked up on the act and 2 years later released the album “Unlimited” which was a big success on the Psy Trance scene and catapulted them into premiere players who had their own distinct sound and a very high quality polished production. They also received national radio play with BBC Radio1 and have been supported by many big names including Paul Oakenfold who is set to release a single of theirs later in the year on Perfecto.

They went onto be a very busy touring band and toured relentlessly for a number of years before releasing Sonic Algebra with Solstice Music in Japan. Tip were sad to see that album slip them by and again they proved themselves to be a cut above the rest. One of the most loved acts in the genre that appeals to the full on party crowd as well as the cynical, hard to please serious music fans. Only a small handful of acts can do this.After a couple of quiet years, in 2010 we saw the rebirth of Logic Bomb and a return to Tip Records.The new album, The Grid was perhaps the most eagerly awaited album of the genre in 2011. And it doesn ́t disappoint. The new tracks are outstanding and unique. Battleships of shining beauty. They sound like they have technology others lack. A reviewer famed for his cynical tendencies said of the recent Logic Bomb track on last years “White” comp on Tip Records,“Logic Bomb remind me of how I fell in love with this music. Listening to it makes me want to grab my Tip tshirt and run out to the nearest big Psy festival. The world needs more Logic Bomb!”

Hear for yourself and see for yourself the reactions of fans: http://soundcloud.com/logicbomb/logic-bomb-sonic- algebra-2011

Truly one of the genre leaders, loved by all. They manage to please both fans of the more progressive, minimal styles and the more full on Psy at the same time. Psychedelic, sumptuous audio for the discerning listener.

Hux Flux
3:30 am - 7:30 am
Z-Plane Records .:. Stockholm, Sweden


The story of Hux-Flux started back in 1998 when Dennis Tapper started making music after some life changing visits to the legendary kilsbergen trance parties outside Orebro, Sweden, where he also lived at the time. After a few releases on his own, including the hit "Time slices", Dennis started to work with Jonas Petterson (a.k.a Tranan) and they produced the now classic album "Cryptic Crunch" together.

After returning from a half year trip to Asia, Dennis relocated to Stockholm and started producing with his long time friend Henric Fietz. Their work resulted in some killer classics, like "Idiot" and "Bring your own BIOS", as well as the album "Division by Zero". Dennis also produced tracks under the name Hux-Flux on his own during this time, some examples of this work are the dancefloor hits "Reflux" and "Equivalent Equations".

An important ingredient in todays Hux-Flux sound is the fact that Dennis, after being educated in DSP mathematics at the university, writes his own audio processing plugins. Some of them will be commercially available in the future.

These days Dennis also produces on a psydub project called "Illuminus" alongside his friend Magnus Holte, while mastering on a more darker, Psy-ish project called "Tryptamind", where he combines forces with his old Swede mate Mathias 'Ibojima' Andersson.

Hux-Flux have played live in the following countries: Japan, Germany, UK, USA, Canada, Mexico, Brasil, Switzerland, South Africa, India, Israel, Morocco, Portugal, Spain, Indonesia, Hungary, Italy, Croatia, Greece, Lithuania, Poland, Russia, Ukraine, Australia, Ireland, Romania, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Denmark, Norway, Finland, Sweden often visiting the same country numerous times.

Mindex
12:00 am - 2:00 am
Mindex Music .:. Moscow, Russia


Mindex channels landscapes from a far off planet, whose creatures and inhabitants travel light-years to reach the listener's third eye and ear. His complex abilities with sound production allow him to draw every shape, color and movement with it's own unique character, taking form in melodic patterns, textured layers, and extremely detailed automations of modern synthesizers and effects to create a 4 dimensional topography for your mind to digest.

He carefully constructs crystalline grids of sonic geometry into moments in time. Combining elements of every style of electronic and acoustic music, he has acquired his own recognizable signature sound that makes the dance floors shake with heavy bass along with catchy beats and leads. At the moment, the galactic rabbit hole he has gone down is dominated by influences of Jazz, Funk, Classical Music, Middle Eastern Music, Glitch-Hop and Dubstep.

With each release, Mindex presents his listeners with musical innovations, always surprising them with his newest explorations in sound. His sonic canvases have been showcased on various labels around the world. His highly acclaimed Teleport EP was released on Kalya Scintilla's Merkaba Music in 2013. He has also released on respected labels such as Deep Heads Records, Glitch Hop Community, Loodma Recordings and the label in which he founded, Time Resonance Music. Mindex has several tracks out in compilations with other labels as well, along side many modern day sonic alchemists.

Mindex has played his euphonious tunes around the globe at many indoor and outdoor festivals and shows in Russia, USA, Ukraine, Spain, Turkey, Israel, India, and Indonesia.

Dixon's Violin
2:00 am - 4:00 am
dixonsviolin.com .:. Detroit, MI
Sacred Earth Open-Air: 2017 Full Moon Festival

The world's premier visionary violinist, Dixon's life mission is to inspire people - and he has done so across North America, including giving three TED talks/performances, ten years at Burning Man, plus radio, TV, and film appearances. Dixon walked away from a distinguished career to follow his dream full-time, and invented a whole new music genre. Based on his classically-trained violin mastery, Dixon now improvises on a 5-string electric violin with a looper to create an all-live one-man symphony. Guided by his remarkable personal story of life transformation, he shows the beauty of doing something seemingly impossible. Dixon's passionate energy will enchant, mesmerize, and inspire you!

Press & Media

The Synthetic Dream Foundation
4:00 am - 6:00 am
Mythical Records .:. Tampa, Florida


"The synthetic dream foundation coallesced as an experimental music band during the harsh, freezing seasons of late 2005. Though in that short time frame has gardened a pallete of sound which is comparable to the glittering of phosphorescent life on the bottom of a cold, blackened sea. From harsh, brooding, mechanical beats to dreamy, neo-classical mirages, and dark ambient masterworks which shift through and absorb cold, alien landscapes. TSDF is not limited by genre, but instead compelled by the infinite possibilities that electronic advancements bestow upon the musical and artistic forms. I have been involved with just about every aspect of art since a very young age. Though none has held as crippling an addiction as music has. This is an oddity in itself to a degree, as no one else in my family is involved w/ any of the arts. I fully introduced myself to these fantasy excursions on my own, so I generally consider myself a self taught musician and artist, though I did begin receiving professional lessons at the high school/college level. I just recently graduated from college with a B.A. in music composition and a B.A. in Psychology.

My main instrument is the piano, though I play a great many more. I am very interested in blending older traditions of art and music with the technological tools of the modern world. I am particularly interested in timbre at the moment and love exploring sound synthesis/design. TSDF started out as a solo music project of mine, but in the last several year I have begun collaborating with many singers and I believe I will continue to work in this manner for atleast the immediate future. If you are a vocalist (particularly classically trained vocalists) please get in contact with me about sending a demo of your work to my studio, if you would like to be considered for future compositions. I am also currently considering collaboratiions with instrumentalists who play western orchestral wind or string instruments and people who play eastern wind or string instruments."

Ephemeral Mists
6:00 am - 8:00 am
Mythical Records .:. Tampa, Florida


Ephemeral mists began its musical journey during the beginning of 2009, when composer, Brett Branning began fusing his cutting edge ambient electronics with the ancient musical traditions and instruments of the middle east and far east. The result is a stunningly beautiful ambient world of sound that goes well beyond the cliches of the genre and reaches for daunting new artistic and creative heights. The debut album, "Moon ritual", is currently avaiable for purchase. Brett has been involved with music since early childhood, and began his musical odyssey on the piano. Although, that has remained his main instrument throughout the years, he is also very fluent on a wide range of world music instruments, including (but not limited to) the Ney, Shakuhachi, Guanzi, Whistle, Blul, Xiao, and Duduk. The passion he holds for these ancient wind instruments plays an integral role in the sound world that Ephemeral Mists creates.

Lusid
8:00 am - 10:00 am
Lusidelia .:. St. Louis, MO

About the venue:

Sacred Earth-36

Astral Valley is an interactive art gallery & organic orchard nestled on over 230 acres in the Missouri Ozarks. Located only 45 minutes South of St. Louis, it was originally settled by Dutch-German immigrants in the 1800s. Not long after, the town of Koester, MO was founded, complete with a general store, post office, blacksmith shop, steam mill, livestock barn & school house. Today only a few old buildings & mostly foundations are what remain. With over 230 acres to be explored the opportunities to get close & interact with nature are endless. In addition to miles of nature trails, a crystal clear creek, wild caves & a spring, it is home to over 200 species of wild animals. Astral Valley has unique rock outcroppings, two wild caves, 20-40 ft granite cliffs, and quartz crystals galore.

More activities  and community workshops are in progress! We’ll announce these soon!

About The Chilluminati:

Psychedelic trance, chill and ambient are the music that we play. Music in itself is a transformative and psychedelic agent. Our gatherings are more than music, however. They are multidimensional and multifaceted experiences–incorporating musical, visual, art and kinetic performances, as well as interactive workshops and community.

Our gatherings are about transformation and becoming. Whatever your sense of spirituality is, you bring that to the event. At our gatherings everyone takes responsibility for the event, others and themselves.

Our gatherings have an atmosphere and a vibe. The event is a field of energy that connects us. Our gatherings are about expressing yourself, being creative, and being an individual. Our gatherings are inclusive and open.

Our gatherings are both local and planetary; reflective of the American Midwest, yet global and culturally diverse.

We respect local laws and customs.

Our events are a gift which we all (organizers, artists, DJs, stagehands and attendees) give to each other. This is not about money, commercialization and exploitation. This is not a product; this is a community.

I’m so excited for this year’s Sacred Earth! I’ve been waiting for this since before I even got back home last year!

It’ll be my third year, and it’s definitely more than worth the 8 hour drive from MN!!

My best friend has cancer. He already lost a leg to it. N we aren’t sure he’ll make it till Christmas. We would love to come down for it. But unfortunately with the cost of his treatment n my current budget we just don’t see how we can make it. We went too the one in Black River Falls a few years back. And have talked about coming back for another ever since. Unfortunately this could be our last chance to make it. We could honestly use the free tickets and any other help from the community to get to this years festival. It would mean so much to the both of us. This could be his final festival and last chance to create a positive impact on so many others lives. If you can offer any help you can find me on Facebook as Michael Conley current city Neenah… Read more »

I’ve been wanting to attend a psytrance festival for the past 4 years! My boyfriend has been to many and he said sacred earth was by far his favorite festival that he’s been too. I would love to be able to experience such a spiritual energy❤ I spend a lot of time getting in touch with my spiritual connection by meditation, chakra crystal healing and especially frequency and music healing! It would be such a blessing opportunity to be able to experience psytrance live!

Thank you!
Namaste?

Prior to Sacred Earth I had never encountered anything like psytrance, or anything like Sacred Earth for that matter. I don’t speak lightly when I say that Sacred Earth is a life changing experience. So many interesting and diverse people that are all willing to connect with others. The energy that Sacred Earth cultivates is unlike anything I’ve experienced. Each summer it has become a spiritual pilgrimage that I look forward to all throughout the year. I can’t wait for year 3

Sacred earth is my chance to finally connect with likeminded souls who love psytrance peace friendship and community as much as I do. I met some of my to this day best friends at sacred earth seven years ago sitting around a fire laughing about animal noises. No one in my day to day life understands the wonderful connection and vibes this festival brings. When I’m there I feel like I’m home and at peace and this year I want to take my future husband to his first psytrance outdoor experience and I couldn’t think of a better event than this to share the positive life changing vibes! When he goes he’ll understand a huge piece of me that much more. Love you all

I have been itching to go to a really awesome psytrance festival for a while now, and didn’t get the chance to attend the Astral Observatory Music & Arts Festival this past September; so it’s beyond perfect that it is going to be held at Astral Valley featuring one of my favorite musical genres. Not only that, it’s the SAME weekend as my 26th birthday as well as a full moon festival. I don’t think it could be any more magical than that! Thanks for the opportunity ✨??

I have been to many festivals, over many years. I have only gotten to go to Sacred Earth once, and it was one of the best. I have not gotten to see It at the new venue, and would love to be a part of it again. The Chilluminati are wonderful hosts. I hope to see you all there this year, but if I dont make it, I hope you all have a wonderful experience. 🙂

I’ve never attended Sacred Earth or any other transformational festival. I’m a fairly new transplant from hippie CA aka Santa Cruz <3
I'd be the happiest soul on earth if I could come experience this event with my twin flame and be able to come dance and connect with other psy soul spirits. Winning tickets or not – we will be there!! 🙂

Sacred earth!! The name itself is enough to pump up my heart ❤️.. it was the first festival in united states for me and it was extraordinary..It reminds me of goa which i miss very much after moving to America. The people there add to my happiness.. so so wonderful people out there and not to forget are the organizers, a big thank you for making this happen.. loads of ❤️ to chilluminati!

Sacred Earth was the very first festival I had ever gone too. The thing I loved the most was the awesome people I met and how free I felt from reality. Much love!

I can’t wait for this year’s festival! I’m 29, and I’ve never been anywhere that felt as amazing as Sacred Earth. The people make me feel accepted like nothing I’ve ever known, and the music takes me to another world. Plus, my birthday it’s how I celebrate my birthday. Lol

Hey guys, just stopping by to show some love and attempting to win some tickets! Derp! As I stated though, either way in there like swimwear this summer! Had ticket last year but life effed me and had to sale it. Not 2017. I heard so many great things about last year needless to say it’s one of my most anticipated events this year. Can’t wait for June, you guize should get some eastcoast talent out this year!! ?

SE 2016 was my first exposure to over 48 hours of Psy and even though I have been enjoying it for many many years it was a breakthrough for me to feel like I truly came out on the other psyde of a trance-dental journey . Easily one of my favorite 2016 gatherings and look forward to getting back in the sauce with all of you lovely misfits and phamily! Thanks for you for being a pillar in an immensely under-represented community in the states ChillumiHOTTIES <3 <3

I love all the Chilluminati events I’ve been to over the last 2 years. I am particularly excited about Sacred Earth 2017 near St. Louis. It’s just 40 minutes from my house. Last year was an experiment to check out how the venue feels and it was amazing! I’m excited that people have probably heard about this place and more will come. The talent is great the arts and visuals and stage are great. Being in nature, with hardly any cars around and the creek are so nice. Last year the open field at the far end was empty with a full or near full moon; at 10 or 11pm it was so serene to just lie there.

I’m hoping to come to Sacred Earth this year no matter what, but winning some tickets would seal the deal. It’s long been a dream of mind to attend a psy festival and I’ve never been able to. I knew many of the members of the community back in the 90’s when we met on a Yahoo discussion group. We partied around the Midwest for a while and had a lot of fun with underground events. I moved to Colorado in 2005 and watched from afar as Sacred Earth grew and the people I used to know honed their craft, becoming brilliant and respected artists. Hux Flux and Logic Bomb are two of my all-time favorite artists, and it would be a trip to see them and the rest of the Midwest psy family. If I don’t win tix (I’m not counting on it), I’d love to volunteer and will… Read more »

Psy/goa trance and camping, best combination. Had a brilliant time last year, looking forward to take a break from reality once again!

I love Sacred Earth’s atmosphere, with everyone around you, you know you can feel at home no one judges you and is ready to have a genuine conversation. Even other festivals don’t give the same feeling as Sacred Earth does. It’s a shame i can’t always make it to MO but it’s worth it everytime.

The first sacred earth was a lifechanging expeirance for me
It was where I found myself and my stick companion. I love what you guys do and want to be a part of it however I can

What i Love the most about Sacred Earth And Chilluminati events is the Community, The community is so alive and Open. So many wonderful people with so much expression for what they are passionate for, its very motivating, The artists never fail to put on a great set and i love how involved this community gets with nature and art, Chilluminati never disapoint me. What i look forward to the most this year, is to see the beautiful Astral Valley campgrounds for the first time and getting my psytrance fix 🙂

I’m looking for information on vending handmade items? I read the information above. What is the vendors fee for the handmade item booths? Also do you require a vendor’s license or insurance coverage. I appreciate someone getting back with me, thank you 🙂

I love music festivals but there is something so special about this one. I have never missed a chance to go to Astral Valley, it is truly a magical place upheld by hard working, loyal and loving souls. It is a beautiful place to call home, probably the only festival grounds I will go to this year. But Sacred Earth IN Astral Valley…you guys, it is something else! BEYOND beautiful, a sea of exceptionally vulnerable dancing fiends, the BEST energy and vibes I’ve ever felt from a group of people, incredible lineups with psychedelic neon decorated stages to boot. I didn’t know how epically necessary psytrance was until Sacred Earth, it was more of a party than Electric Forest was (of course this is all my opinion, take it or leave it). I could talk about it all day, I promise, it is worth your time and $. 😛 Let… Read more »
