North America Psytrance and Goa Trance


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.

We care about this event more than words can express and this move to a different venue is because we are not willing to make compromises that could jeopardize this tradition we have built over the last 13 years.

Sacred Earth 2017 Artist Spotlight: Psypien

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.
