Electronic Zone

The Electronic Zone line-up at Luminate 2017 is packed full of amazing international and local talent, pushing the boundaries of contemporary electronic genres, and providing a world class experience of diverse, cutting edge dance music. it's the only dedicated zone for 100% electronic music at Luminate.

Ranging through the styles of House, Techno, Electro, Breaks, Progressive & Psychedellic Trance, Dub, Drum & Bass, Dubstep, Ambient & Downbeat, World Grooves and the odd special performance act, it will make for the ideal snap shot of current music trends.



When the action in the outside world all gets a bit too hectic, The Chillounge provides the space you need to stretch out or curl up in quiet contemplation on soft (and possibly fluffy) surfaces, a hot organic chai in your hands, nibbling on a sweet nutritious morsel as your auditory system is soothed and massaged by soft waves of sub-bass, tasteful and interesting rhythms, and ethereal, ever-changing layers of sound.


Village Stage

The musical heart of the Village Market will be a place of fun, warmth and surprises. The Village Stage at Luminate will host a great number of artists, singers, musicians, dancers, clowns and storytellers, all ready to lighten your day with their repartee.



The heart of Tribal is the sacred fire which calls for all to come and offer their rhythm through acoustic vibrations. Percussion fuses with voice and harmonic instruments to invoke the primal dance within. Everyone is invited to celebrate throughout the night around the fire circle.

Tribal is a consciously co-evolving space to share music, dance, exploration and connectivity in remembrance that life is beautiful, the Earth and her elements are sacred and we are all precious beings with gifts of love to share with our Earth family.
