18 DAYS OF INDIGENOUS AND MUSICAL FUN. Dates 23 February - 12 March 2018 Place: Playa Chiquita, Panama.
Once a year 60 tribes from 30 countries come together to share their knowledge with the global psychedelic community.
Tribal Gathering is so much more than a music festival. It's 18 day's on a Caribbean beach, around 200 workshops hundreds of musicians from around the world, a learning journey from the ancient to the modern and a charity with all profits going to the attending tribes.
And we are Back! The frequencies are lining up and this next edition is where we go deeper into the realms of Space and at the same time celebrate our Earth.
Chilltop Festival is an initiative where we showcase Chill Out, Ambient & DownTempo frequencies.
This is a gathering for curious minds, chill lovers and music explorers from all around our lovely bobbing blue planet. We have carefully selected, what we think, is quite a diverse selection of psychedelic chill sounds that will keep you smiling and grinning well into the night.
With many years in the making, this festival focuses on the concept of balance within and we definitely hope it matures into a platform for many creative ideas to convert into actual realities. We do feel the worldwide change happening, a shift in consciousness where new ideas are the most powerful tools that can shape our world, our music, our concepts. Our attempt at this Festival is to bring together many tribes and collectively move into the realm of exploration - both inner and outer space.
We invite you to smile, move and groove with us as we bring this 2nd edition into what some call the organic center of the Psychedelic Mandala - Goa. This is where a lot of us call home and this is where we place our diverse roots deep into the powerful land with our thoughts, music, arts, and culture.

GAUDI ALLSTARS ORCHESTRA is the new band project by worldwide respected musician and producer Gaudi. With a total of 3.000 live concerts in the last three decades (1000 of which performed as ‘solo’ in the last decade), touching every continent and rocking audiences in an impressive array of venues from festival main stages to slick city clubs, Gaudi has rightly earned his reputation as a great multi-instrumentalist and his place on the ‘must-see-live’ list. In his live performances he delights his audiences playing the theremin, minimoog, vocoder, tape echoes, piano, percussion, multi-effects, stylophone and dub sirens, adding live dub vocals through his much treasured analogue equipment. In his constant search for new musical avenues to explore, Gaudi has worked with many musicians and bands over the years, not always been a solo performer, he has regularly toured with different backing-bands at different points in his career. Gaudi musical performance roots back in the 80’s, playing his cross-over sound of reggae, electronica and psychedelic dub throughout the 90’s, until the 00’s, when with his live band developed a richer ’dancefloor flavored’ sound and rocked-up the electronic dance festival scene –with performances at Glastonbury, Glade, Gatecrasher, Boomtown, Turaya in the UK, Roskilde in Denmark, Burning Man in the USA, Reggae Sunsplash, Sonica in Italy, Skol Beat, Universo Paralello in Brazil and tours in Japan, Australia, Canada, India, Russia and everywhere in Europe. Now, a decade later, fearless ‘dub adventurer’ Gaudi is once again donning his genre-blending boots and stepping out with his new creation, the GAUDI ALLSTARS ORCHESTRA, a solid band fruit of 30 years of touring and on-stage experience, resulting in a stellar lineup of top caliber musicians, that not only bring their stand-alone talents but also come with the experience of years of performing live, as members of globally respected bands such as PORCUPINE TREE, LAMB and LOUNGEDELIC. This solid ensemble generates a fresh and original sound, not easy to encapsulate in just one word, a cross-over that could be best described as ‘krautrock meets dub meets psychedelic-electronica’. The bass player in the GAUDI ALLSTARS ORCHESTRA is COLIN EDWIN, from PORCUPINE TREE, he has toured the world multiple times filling stadiums and concert halls with his legendary ’psychedelic prog-rock’ band, he is a true powerhouse and considered by many to be one of the best living bass players in the world. The drummer is NIKOLAJ BJERRE, from ‘electronica innovators’ LAMB, he’s recognized and respected by drummers worldwide for his innovative technique of fusing jazz with electronic music. His sound is distinctive and punchy and carries weight and power equally well on dancefloors and in the recording studio. His fragmented polyrhythmic patterns are captivating and satisfying for all -up to and including the most sophisticated of musical palate. The guitarist is DE PALMA, from ’psychedelic space-rock trio’ LOUNGEDELIC, a super versatile and eclectic guitar player with his signature sound best described as ‘krautrock-spacedub’ and is created live on stage using vintage effect pedals as extra instruments, manipulating them in real time in order to add a fascinating ‘rolling hypnotic movement’ to the live performance. Dub maestro Gaudi completes the quartet with his trademark analogue setup, plus the addition of an extra mixer, the nerve center to which each member of the GAUDI ALLSTARS ORCHESTRA is connected, allowing him to dub his musicians live ‘on the fly’ and add brand new improvised arrangements to every track throughout the show, that consists in a repertoire of songs from his latest album ‘Magnetic’ (in which, the members of the band are also featured) and classic tracks from Gaudi’s 16 studio albums re-arranged in ‘hi-octane’ infectious versions. A live performance not to be missed!... See MoreSee Less

Amongst the rolling hills of Leicestershire at the heart of rural England, Noisily Festival calls The Coney Woods home. Whilst rooted in the electronic music scenes, Noisily is a holistic environment which feeds the mind, body and soul. It’s a celebration of psychedelic culture, built on the values of friendship, love, passion, nature and community. Across the festival you’ll find a carefully curated lineup of visual and interactive art, craftspeople, healers, and of course the very best music representing the breadth and depth of the Electronic spectrum....

The theme of next edition 2018 will be "Lis Aganis". This is the ancient name of some water fairies of rivers, lakes and torrents in the local traditions. The typical name comes from Latin language and means exactly "the water(s)" or "the aquatics". These fairies look like mythological nymphs and they became a local icon in Valtramontina (the name of Sonica Festival mountain location). They are often described as young and beautiful female figures, other times like half-human half-reptile or half-fish, and often dressed with white color materials, so representing both the good and the evil according to the cases. Come to discover the Sonica's magical venue and meet "Lis Aganis" around the shores of the Meduno river with its crystal clear mountain water. A new unforgettable and magical experience is just about to restart! 🙂... See MoreSee Less
Dear VooVians, soon it’s time to do it again! The VooV 2018 is drawing ever closer, and we are already looking forward to celebrating with you what we established over the past years: a symbiosis of excellent music, beautiful decorations, the VooV-typical, breathtaking light- and laser-show and last but not least the uniquely clear and powerful sound system! To reward you and ourselves for the wonderfully relaxed and intimate atmosphere that you were such an integral part and creator of in the last years, we will step up the musical variety in 2018 – with a second floor which at night turns into a playing field for the lovers of darkness: with DarkPsy, HiTech and Forest! We are so excited… ❤We cannot wait to VooV with you!❤
Liebe VooVianer, bald ist es wieder soweit! Die VooV 2018 rückt immer näher, und wir freuen uns schon jetzt, mit euch die in den letzten Jahren etablierte Symbiose aus erstklassiger Musik, einer hinreißenden Deko, dem VooV-typischen, atemberaubenden Licht- und Laserspektakel und nicht zuletzt dem einzigartig klaren und kraftvollen Sound erneut zu zelebrieren! Um euch und uns für die wunderbare, familiär-entspannte Atmosphäre zu belohnen, die ihr in den letzten Jahren so maßgeblich mitgestaltet habt, wollen wir 2018 auch musikalisch noch eine Schippe drauf legen: mit einem 2. Floor, der nachts zur Spielwiese wird für die Freunde der Dunkelheit: mit DarkPsy, HiTech und Forest! Wir können es kaum erwarten… ❤We cannot wait to VooV with you!❤
Trance is ancient and it has always been the shamans that guided participants into deep states of trance with their medicines, singing and drums. Often around campfires they sing their songs. We invite shamans from all over the world to the festival to set the energy on the dance floors and to heal on our sacred island. We view the Dj/producer as a modern day shaman that guides our visitors on our dance floors into trance. Our dancefloors are sacred spaces where people connect as one living organism with the music being the binding factor.

After two very hard years trying to maintain the comfort of our audience, we decided to change location: we have sought to maintain the magic of our venerated "Batán de las Monjas" and improve everything that we could not offer there in terms of comfort for our connectors. After these last two years in which we have had increasingly difficult access with cars and caravans, the parking of caravans and cars at the festival ... With our connectors in an increasingly uncomfortable situation ... For the survival of your festival we change venue . Not without thanking the unconditional support of the people of San Nicolás del Puerto and the "Batán de las Monjas" to Connection Festival these 5 years. They will always be in our heart.
As an important fact: We changed the date to be closer in the calendar of festivals and in the Spanish summer, to be able to take advantage of this location and that you can enjoy the baths in the Natural Pools of La Codosera, where the bath is allowed! !!

CONNECTION FESTIVAL vuelve con más fuerza que nunca renaciendo desde su esencia!!
Después de dos años muy duros intentando mantener la comodidad de nuestro público, decidimos cambiar de localización: hemos buscado mantener la magia de nuestro venerado “Batán de las Monjas” y mejorar todo lo que allí no podíamos ofrecer en cuanto a comodidad para nuestros conectores. Tras estos últimos dos años en los cuales hemos tenido cada vez más difícil el acceso con coches y caravanas, el parking de caravanas y coches en el festival… Con nuestros conectores en situación cada vez más incómoda… Para la supervivencia de vuestro festival cambiamos de sede. No sin agradecer el apoyo incondicional del pueblo de San Nicolás del Puerto y el “Batán de las Monjas” a Connection Festival estos 5 años. Siempre estarán en nuestro corazón.
Como dato importante: Cambiamos de fecha para estar más cerca en el calendario de festivales y en pleno verano español, para poder aprovechar bien esta localización y que podáis disfrutar de los baños en las Piscinas Naturales de La Codosera, donde sí está permitido el baño!!!
Llegan tiempos nuevos y llegan los tiempos de La Codosera y el bendito río Gévora!! Unas mágicas Piscinas Naturales en un entorno de bosque mágico que es completamente llano! Con espacio más que suficiente para acampar, aparcar con tu coche o caravana, accesos de carretera hasta 50 metros del Main Stage!! Y todas las comodidades que buscamos!!! Agua potable, sombra y una situación geográfica estupenda al estar a sólo 3 horas de Madrid, 2 de Lisboa o 3 de Sevilla!! Se encuentra en la provincia de Badajoz, España. Tenemos capacidad para hasta 5000 personas!!! El Main Stage tendrá el doble de dimensión para poder saltar y bailar todos mucho más cómodos en nuestro amado “Oldschool Temple”!! Y sobre todo recordar que este equipo de trabajo está con más ilusión que nunca por demostrar que nuestros errores del pasado son mejorables en un espacio como el que vamos a trabajar solo por y para vosotros!!!
Este año contaremos con tres espacios: Chill Out Healing Area! Altechnative Stage!! Oldschool Temple!!!
Estando en una situación tan privilegiada tendremos shuttle bus desde Lisboa, Madrid y Sevilla, para que podáis llegar desde cualquiera de estos aeropuertos cómodamente hasta el festival.
