The Chilluminati Present, in our thirteenth year, a spin on our indoor Metatronic series! Traditionally held in the freezing winter of the Midwestern USA, we have relocated to the sub-tropics of central Florida for an intimate evening of psychedelic beats and treats.
This is an open-invite, full-scale music and art event taking place in the Tampa Bay area. Audio navigation from a host of amazing psy-trance artists from all over, artwork and visual installations, kinetic UV performances, and more!
Join us for our first event in the Southeastern US as we begin our 2018 festival season and progress through Goa, Psytrance, Darkpsy, and Psybreaks in an immersive & interactive environment by design.
Doppler = of, relating to, being, or utilizing a shift in frequency.
Deflect = to cause (something that is moving) to change direction
Doppler Deflect = To shift energy in opposition to the way it was moving.
Born as an Southern Illinois (visualize nothing but corn and bean crops as far as the eye can see) native, DopplerDeflect was consistently told he was a big fish in a little pond. It took 3 years of touring the country via 18-wheeler for him to decide that it would be Florida where he would learn how to dive deep in to music. From dark metallic backgrounds such as Nine Inch Nails and Static-X a new musical mesh was born when an aspiring artist attended his first ‘rave’ otherwise known as Ultraviolet. It was this consciousness altering experience that ultimately blended light with darkness. With a broad range of styles from chill to chaotic, enter the psychedelic soundscapes of DopplerDeflect.
Krikett is a trance-dimensional spacebug known throughout the US for a beyond expectational deliverance of tasty sonical treats and shiney things. With the formula of stimulating track selection, seamless mixes, and profound live presence; she has traveled a multitude of coordinates and thousands of miles/kilometers for events of every variety. Frequencies range from all styles psychedelic; mainly psytrance, but also breaks, drum and bass, and techno; while keeping a consistent vibe of all things juicy, weird, fun, and groovy. Krikett's motive is to always make you move and level up to the next dimensions; she is guaranteed to graciously fill the void and the dancefloor for any occasion in need of a little something extra special.
Primordial Ooze through countless mutations eventually developed opposable thumbs for twisting knobs and smashing buttons. Inspired by filtering experiences into sound by shaping waveforms and encouraging them to bubble and adapt to their sonic environment Primordial Ooze puts you in the center of the cosmic symphony. This sound surrounds you with frequencies immersing you into vibrant, ritualistic compositions that resonate deep within your primeval memories. While dancing if you feel like growing gills, horns, and tails keep calm and keep on stomping as you’ve just awakened your fundamental self.
The Dragon's medicine includes change and transformation, wisdom, infinity, longevity, movement through space, and the supernatural.
Tradition may give specific qualities for dragons of the elements of earth, fire, water, and air, however, in general terms, the Dragon’s power is that of shedding its skin and coming out as a new, transformed being. The Dragon provides us with fierce protection and possesses inherent magic, representing the supernatural and infinite self.
Charly Martinez is the mind behind his Dj project Bionic Brain. He started his career as a DJ in 2008 in La Paz, Bolivia playing in local parties and also well known psytrance festivals. His influence is aggressive bass lines, explosive atmospheres, and a very selective track selection. Influenced by the twilight hours his DJ sets soon start getting respect among the local psytrance community.
He is part of the legendary label Fractal Records (Switzerland) and Enterprise Records (Israel). He's also participating in his VA –Twilight Chronicles. Don't miss out and keep on eye on his upcoming releases!
First introduced to psychedelic trance music, Ascella attended her first festival, Sacred Earth Open Air Festial in Pidgeon Falls, WI in 2014 - and never looked back. Always having a passion for music, she had never found a sound that made her feel so alive, and granted her the ability to lose herself in dance. Finding this enlightment through psytrance, she began attending festivals, helping host shows, cultivating her passion, and eventually began spinning in 2016 - hoping to give back to the community who had already given her so much.
With a focus on morning sounds, Ascella strives to take her audience on a mind-revealing journey through the use of enlivening music and eclectic sounds. Her sets are constructed around her love and study of astrology, as she draws on inspiration from current astrological transits to allow her floor to experience and connect with the energies surrounding them. Through her music, she hopes to envoke emotion and connectedness through dance to oneself and to one another, and to weave together a story to which her listeners can all relate.
Morning. Full-On. Progressive.

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.
