We are The Chilluminati: Promoting Goa and Psychedelic Trance Music and Culture in the Midwest USA , North America and planetwide. Founded in 2004, we regularly host indoor and outdoor events (large and small) every year throughout Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa and Missouri.
Some of our successful recurring events include Sacred Earth Open Air, Secret Fire, Karmaclysm, Geologic, Crystal Sky and Metatronic.
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.
