We are The Chilluminati: Promoting Goa and Psychedelic Trance Music and Culture in North America and planet-wide. Founded in 2004, we host psychedelic trance events (large and small) throughout Illinois, Wisconsin, Iowa, Missouri, Colorado, and Florida.
Some of our successful recurring events include Sacred Earth Open-Air, Secret Fire, Karmaclysm, Geologic, Crystal Sky and Metatronic.
Be sure to bookmark us, follow us on Twitter, like us on Facebook, or find us on almost any other social network of your choosing to stay up-to-date with new events and other announcements.
This is what guides us:
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.

Taxonomy of the Psypien: (Homo Sapien Psypiens- [psy-pɪˌɛn]) - A mammal of the primate order originally from Africa, that reached anatomical modernity about 200,000 years ago and began to exhibit full behavioral modernity around 50,000 years ago. In the late 90's he began to exhibit regular psytrance-listening behavior, and evolved into a producer in early 2012. Psypien is the project of Oliver Z/L, who grew up in the forests of Vienna, Austria, and now lives among the humans of Brooklyn, NY, by way of California. Psypien aims to create evocative, powerful, and unique psychedelic sound, merging 'traditional' forest & full-on approaches ...Read More
Dfectv's multidimensional music is so dark and hypnotic, that it is heard in the deepest trenches of the ocean, and in the murkiest of swamps. Dfectv's music is a metaphor of the layers of illusion and sorrow of the world that we bury ourselves in. Awakening the great Kundalini serpent of the earth herself, his music stirs awake what lies dormant within us all. Transforming us into our true selves, Dfectv's music reminds us that like the snake, we must release what no longer serves us to be able to move forward, and create a new reality.You are the reason ...Read More

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 ...Read More
