Feel free to arrive or leave at any time, but we believe the journey is best experienced as a whole: please try to arrive early. Our music is a mix of organic and electronic beats from around the globe—with a focus on the cutting edge of "bass music" production. The journey will open with flowing music to warm-up the body, steadily pick up in tempo & intensity to reach peaks of ecstasy, and gently land into meditative, heart-chakra stillness. (Note: There will be some powerful bass at moments through the premium sound system, but we won’t get into trance or rave music.)
