The early Egyptians recognized the Spring Equinox as a sacred turning point of the year, and built the Great Sphinx so that it points directly toward the rising Sun on that day every rotation. For our ancestors, the birth of spring meant that winter's cold was ebbing, dwindling food supplies would soon be replenished and bellies would be full once again -- certainly a cause for celebration!
Join us as we celebrate the astrological new year with the FIRST EVER electronic music performance in a dome theatre on March 22nd.
Desert Dwellers have been blowing our minds for years, most recently on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC. We’ve become huge Datagrama fans after first seeing their visual accompaniment to Tipper’s sets at Okeechobee, Resonance, and Tipsgiving this past year. These two acts will be simultaneously performing under a 76 foot 360-degree dome theatre for you and your 224 cosmic companions.
Jack Hurley will be providing visuals for the opening acts, supporting musicians will be announced soon!
FREE fruit, water, and healthy snacks will be provided through the night, no alcohol will be served, and live art will surround the theatre for your viewing pleasure during your celebration.
Skillfully blending deep bass, earthy percussion, etheric voices and culture-crossing instrumentation into a sonic incense for mind and body, Desert Dwellers offers a spellbinding hybrid with echoes of our past and future. Founded by Amani Friend & Treavor Moontribe in 2001.
Datagrama is a collective of international artist-coders that create immersive environments and perform live visuals. Inspired by nature and living systems, Datagrama uses custom-made generative software exploring the intersection and overlay of light between the physical and the digital space. With a long history being featured at American events such as Burning Man, Tipper and Friends, SXSW, Lightning in a Bottle, EDC Daisy Carnival, as well as international festivals like Ozora (Hungary) and Boom Festival (Portugal), we can’t wait to see what these masters of light and imagery can do with a fully immersive 76 foot wide dome theatre screen.
