SUN DOWN CIRCLE CELEBRATES ITS 5TH ANNIVERSARY WITH A CIRCULAR PROGRAMME THAT SPANS SUNRISE TO SUNSET
Five years ago Dutch selector Young Marco put his spin on Bali’s legendary journey from day to night with a five-hour set for our first-ever Sun Down Circle event. A club night that we approach more like a one-day mini festival, SDC is a celebration of both the music we love and the glorious point each evening at the Beach Club in which the sun turns into a neon ball of energy radiating a rainbow of hues across the Indian Ocean. This SDC marks our 5th anniversary and we’ve come, well, full circle. Young Marco is back and joined by Melbourne’s CC: DISCO! as well as local favourites Dea Barandana and Belda, who will take the helm from 5-7pm during our video livestream with NYC indie station The Lot Radio.
And that’s just the music! For this edition we’re taking SDC to new dimensions by starting at sunrise with a mystical exploration of the circle. Join us on the beach for an early morning sound bath led by the gong experts at Pyramids of Chi, followed a communal breakfast with Lawrence Blair. The celebrated explorer will lend his knowledge on sacred geometry to reveal the true symbolism of the ancient symmetric shape. The daytime activities then move to Sustainism Lab where the team from Green School’s Innovation Hub will investigate the connections among sound, art and nature in a cymatics workshop for kids.
Whether you’re more sunrise or sunset—or a magical balance of both—we hope to see you for this very special 5th anniversary of Sun Down Circle!
