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.

 

https://www.facebook.com/Nephil9/
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.

Hux Flux
12:00 am - 3:30 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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Sacred Earth Open-Air is an 18+ event (unless accompanied by a parent)

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.

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 »

I went last year and it was the best time I’ve had at any show I’ve been too. I’m definitely planning on coming back this year. By far worth the drive (Near Minneapolis)
