Thank You

2021

An immersive experience of Art and Music

Thank You!

A week has gone by and still now, when we close our eyes we can still see you all there, all the smiles, the laughter, the hugs, tears of joy and the overwhelming feeling in the air of a loving community. Thank you for helping activate the Realm of Starvibes, the magic and synchronicity you felt was created by every single one of you. Thank you for coming and allowing yourself to go through this journey together. Now you know what can be created when magical beings come together to build a space where anything is possible, a place where you can be your highest self and feel free, loved and heard. 

We wanted to give a special thank you to everyone who made this possible…

Production Team

Thank you to Austin (@wonx.music), our Co-Founder. The stage was just once a CAD design with a tiny man ‘Tod’ as a scale, never in a million years would we have thought it would have turned out so stunning and breathtaking. Your vision, leadership and hard work paid off, it’s been an honor working with you.

Thank you to Igor (@contact.bread). Your hard work and perseverance kept us pushing ourselves to do more. You believed in this vision and did as much as you physically could to contribute, which was a lot. Please know we appreciate your hard work, your passion and the beautiful art you created.

Thank you to Kevin and the Synchronistic Sound Crew (@synchronisticsound). Oh those Hennesys! You believed in us from the start and continue to bring the most amazing sound system we have witnessed. Words cannot describe what we feel when we hear them, their vibration activates the magic and creates an audio experience that is transformative. 

Thank you to Tim Anderson and Jerry from NuSalt Laser Shows (@nusaltlaser) What a show! We were hypnotized by the light. There were times we would look up and feel we were in a different dimension and would lose ourselves in the lasers. It was as if there was glitter in the air and your soul could connect to it.

Thank you to Tim and Timmy from SPL Sound for the power!. You brought power to the gathering that allowed us to create all the spaces and light up the beautiful art for everyone to see. 

Thank you to Eliot and TC Rentals (https://tricalrentals.com) for the power and infrastructure gear. You made so much possible, by simply being amazing to work with, we value your advice and the additional equipment you suggested we took because you knew we would need it.
