About The Experience:

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.

Some Reviews of Sacred Earth 2017

God, where do I even start... First off, huge thanks to The Chilluminati for once again putting together an incredible event. The main stage was out of control amazing, and I have no idea how you managed to keep the chill and dark stages from noise polluting each other, but it was awesome that they didn't. So many great things happened this weekend. I got to see old friends, got to party with friends I don't see enough of, even made a few new friends (Sean and Anita, if you see this, feel free to add me. You guys were fuckin awesome and I'd love to keep in touch and hang out at future festivals <3 ), bought some amazing art, hung out with one of the coolest dogs ever, and of course, the music was FANTASTIC! I already can't wait until next time!!!

Thank you everyone who helped contribute to create this amazing event and all the beautiful people who attended. Thank you to the Chilluminati for the opportunity to play. Thank you to everyone who came and danced to my set and fueled the dance floor with your positive energy. Thank you to the sound and stage guys for helping me get situated and keep everything flowing. This Sacred Earth has been beyond words for me. I got to spend time with some lovely people, dance to my heart and soul's delight, and learned a lot from the Universe. I can't wait for next year. Love you all!

Chilluminati crew your hard work is astounding!! What a profoundly beautiful weekend!! Mega-Turbo-Thank You to all involved; Dedicated crew and Awesome attendants!!???? So many wonderfully talented minds in one place?? I guess that's why for generations tribes meet up under the full moon to share in knowledge exchange, sacred music, and life changing experiences! -if you haven't already done so?; I challenge you to take several positive experiences, new knowledge, vibes, from your experiences at Sacred Earth 2017 and weave them into your home and community

Beautiful memories of peace, and love. I look forward to sacred earth each year, and again, I was reminded, that it is all of us, that brings the circle together. Did anyone see my painting on the big screen Saturday night? I was able to do a live collaboration segment with Andrew from the visuals booth. what a great feeling, to see my artwork on stage. I will take that vibe with me, You take the vibe with you everywhere you travel too. . Let your soul lead your feet. See you all soon. Thank you Chilluminati.....bliss remains.

Russell Burton

uuuuuhh what a beautiful festival this is!! I hope to get to know all of you one day, loved spending yet another amazing weekend in the valley with all you cool cats. Didn't get as many pictures as I wanted; had way to much fun capturing the full moon and you guys dancing with long exposures. Hope you enjoy! 😛 Add me if we connected in anyway. <3 you guys!

I am so happy that the 3rd stage was added. Darkpsy at Sacred completes it for me. So perfect to have it as the Moon stage. Strengthened deep appreciation of Darkpsy and love of all Psy! Walking past the chill stage was so serial and beautiful....

Finally have a chance to sit down and type. Thank you so much Chilluminati! That was the best SEOA yet! It was such an honour to open the dark stage back up after the surreal violin. Till Next time

Talk about an amazing kickoff to a week and a half long vacation! Many thanks to Tyler Book for inviting me as well as all the beautiful souls that made the event as awesome as it was. As my way of saying thank you, I've posted my sunrise set for your auditory enjoyment. Until next year, much <3!!!

Two visits to Sacred Earth. Four weeks (and counting) waiting for my sunburned scalp to stop peeling. SIXTEEN TRUCKLOADS of Totally Worth It.

I know I'm super late but just wanted to thank everyone involved that put this together! This was by far my favorite Psytrance event yet! The music line-up was out of this world, all the people I met and didn't, and of course the location. So much
