We invite you to join us as the Lunarpunk sourcerers travel back from the brink of the 2057 apocalypse to spread ripples of magic and positivity across the land! In this parallel design space, we welcome you to let loose with us as we share in the moonlight under the cover of darkness, reveling in the subconscious soul soup where dreams become reality.

Under the approaching Full Worm Moon on the 22nd of March, we bring you a selection of sphericular soundscapes, from PsyBass, Psydub, Liquid D&B, Dubstep, Psychedelic Experimental, and full-blown Psychedelic Trance, spun out with a mystical moonlit twist for your wonderment

Whipping up a feast for the senses, both “The Mush-room” and the “Moon-Room” will be kitted out with beautiful biolumiescent bespoke creations by Nutbeam Designs, and psychedelic visual displays by Mush Pongo. What’s more, is the mystical man from under the Existance wishing tree, magician and illusionist David Stewart

So come in your Lunarpunk gowns, dresses, hats, and scarves, and the best dressed will win a free ticket to the next event!



The finest Psyhypnocosmotronic Technofunkadelia this side of the Multiverse! Suspended in an orb of perpetual transformation, these enigmatic sonic creations refuse to be captured within a style for more than a moment before evolving into their next incarnation, granting Nanosphere and his garden of sounds an irresistible command over the minds and bodies of dance floor mystics across the globe.

Weaving his tale of sound through the multiverse for over a decade as a producer, DJ, and music technology instructor, Nanosphere and his technofunkadelic creations have appeared on Broken Robot Records, Luminus Music, Desert Trax, and most recently, on global psychedelic label Shanti Planti. With performances at some of the most celebrated events in underground music culture, including Rainbow Serpent (AUS), Twisted Frequency (NZ), Triplicity (UK), Rabbits Eat Lettuce (AUS) and Luminate (NZ), his next chapter takes him deeper into the world of genre-bending sound and the endless layers of the psychedelic music scene.

𝗦𝗻𝗼𝘄𝗱𝗿𝗼𝗽 (Psychedelic Jelly)

Snowdrop weaves delicate melodies and harmonies with transformative bass frequencies, emphasising musically sensitive transitions and meticulous attention to groove. Since 2014 she has shared heart and body moving music at events such as Anthropos, Triplicity, Noisily, Tribe of Frog and Solar.United.Natives. From 2015-2018, her webcasting project New Moon Grooves offered a location in time and space to reharmonise with the lunar cycle.

𝗦𝘁𝗮𝗿𝘀𝗲𝗲𝗱 𝗦𝗼𝘂𝗹 & 𝗘𝗹𝘂𝗺𝗶𝗻 (Ecstatic Dub)

Starseed Soul is a Bristol born, electronic music producer and classically trained pianist. She produces all of her music in the tuning of 432Hz, bringing physical healing, to every cell in your body, through sound & vibration. Her vision is to create conscious healing music that you can actually dance to! Here to elevate your mind, body and soul through evocative lyrics, transcendental beats and the deepest dirtiest baselines around…

Elumin is a hugely gifted vocalist with a flair for capturing both the hearts and minds of all who listen. Her lyrics are deep and spiritual and contain seeds of wisdom about reality and consciousness and our multidimensional existence here on earth.

Together they create something truly unique.

𝗪𝗵𝗶𝗿𝗹𝗶𝗻 𝗠𝗲𝗿𝗹𝗶𝗻 (Psychedelic Jelly / Visionary Shamanics)

A Sonic Sorcerer and long time student of dub and alchemy, opens portals into strange realms.

𝗝𝘂𝘀 𝗚𝗮𝗻𝗮 (Paralell 7)

Journey with Jus Gana from Parallel 7 riding the wave of nostalgic & abstract frequencies that Tribal Dub, Mystical Down Tempo, Psy & World Beats have to offer! In a no border style, selected beats & productions take you far and wide across this existence! Music for the mind, body, soul & beyond

𝗧𝗿𝗶𝗽𝗹𝗼𝗱𝗼𝗰𝘂𝘀 (Sonic Sourcery)

As a long-time student of the underground and all things psychedelic, Matt will be bringing a captivating blend of ancient wisdom and futuristic beats. Rooted in the Zenon tradition, the hypnotic grooves he brings mirror tribal rituals, while intricate soundscapes unveil the mysteries of the natural world. Join us for a journey through time and space with Triplodocus at our upcoming event. #TriplodocusPsytech #ZenonVibes #SonicJourney

𝗡𝗲𝗺𝗲𝘁𝗼𝗻 (Sonic Sourcery)

This young whippersnapper of a wizard will be opening the moon stage with dark-shamanic downtempo. Having consumed way too many "medicinal" mushrooms, this Sonic Sourcerer will attempt to test a series of powerful new spells which are entirely beyond his capability, resulting in either an explosion of pure psychedelic wonder or a complete technical breakdown of the whole event and a big mess to clean up with an erratic mop called "Walt" as his only tool.


𝗡𝘂𝘁𝗯𝗲𝗮𝗺 𝗗𝗲𝘀𝗶𝗴𝗻𝘀 - 𝗩𝗶𝘀𝘂𝗮𝗹 𝗔𝗿𝘁𝗶𝘀𝘁, 𝗟𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴, 𝗦𝘁𝗮𝗴𝗲 𝗗𝗲𝘀𝗶𝗴𝗻

Designer and artists of particular and sonic space, Gerold Nutbeam has created and presented works at DaveFest (UK) and prior SS events, creating unique spacial creations that beam with wonderment. With us since the beginning, and a fundamental part of the Sonic Sourcery team.

𝗠𝘂𝘀𝗵 𝗣𝗼𝗻𝗴𝗼 - 𝗩𝗶𝘀𝘂𝗮𝗹 𝗔𝗿𝘁𝗶𝘀𝘁, 𝗟𝗶𝗴𝗵𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗴, 𝗦𝘁𝗮𝗴𝗲 𝗗𝗲𝘀𝗶𝗴𝗻 - 𝗔𝘂𝗱𝗶𝗼

Lighting Wizard and Sonic Sourcerer Kyle will be unleashing his striking light spells in a visual feast of colour and magic

𝗗𝗮𝘃𝗶𝗱 𝗦𝘁𝗲𝘄𝗮𝗿𝘁 - 𝗠𝗮𝗴𝗶𝗰𝗶𝗮𝗻

Magician David Stewart brings people together in fun and unsuspecting ways, inviting guests to join in playing some “mind games”, with magic that is the perfect way to connect with new people and create memories that last a lifetime. From shows, to roaming magic, to delivering moments of wonder under sacred trees such as in Existance Festival (UK), David is returning to light up the night with entertainment tailored for the night.

𝕎𝕙𝕒𝕥 𝕚𝕤 𝕃𝕦𝕟𝕒𝕣𝕡𝕦𝕟𝕜? “Lunarpunk is a more tentative, lesser-defined aesthetic. It is regarded as the sibling aesthetic of Solarpunk. It embraces spirituality and utopian futures, referencing witchcraft, futuristic design, nature, renewable energy, and the circle of life.”
