Earth Hour celebrates a worldwide commitment to ongoing change for the betterment of the one thing that unites us all – the planet. Change Climate Change! Visit for more info.

GROOVY TROOPERS will celebrate Earth Hour by switching off the dance floor lights from 20h30-21h30. All the better to send a signal to any UFO’s that might be whizzing by, but also to deepen our awareness of the human energy footprint!

Over the last 5 years, the Outsiders have moved from purveyors of classic full-on to a unique blend of Isreali and UK-flavoured psychedelic trance. Their production skills, singular sound and live presence have earned them kudos at festivals around the world, turning them into TIP world’s rising stars. Their resume is impressive: collaborators include respected purveyors of the UK psy-style such as Tristan, Avalon, Dicksterr and Laughing Buddha. Other notable confederates include Electric Universe, Burn In Noise, Symbolic, Altruism, Dj Lucasad, Ajja and Sonic Species. Their main source of inspiration, however, remains the crowds they have wowed on their global travels as well as that mysterious and ineffable quality of ‘otherness’ that colours the universe all shades of groovy. When asked about what informs the Outsiders’ unique sound-scapes, Haim Lev had the following to say: “space, astrobiology, the possibility of extraterrestrial contact and all the great unknowns!”


Rinkadink (aka. Vana) is one of SA’s main psytrance exports. Since 2002 he’s been releasing his own unique brand of psytrance, performing at festivals in more than 35 countries and in clubs in more than a hundred cities! His singular style is hard to pin down – consequently he can’t be bracketed in any particular subgenre of psytrance; in the Vana’s own words, he releases “music that’s hypnotic with interesting harmonies!” While in the past his style displayed an abstract (and even, at times, a slapstick) ethos, his more recent efforts have revealed a new and uncompromising style that some have dared to label as ‘post full-on psychedelic progressive’ or ‘psy-prog.’ Call it what you like, one thing is certain about Rinkadink: he knows how to deliver maximum energy and rock a dancefloor like no one else! As Vana explains, “my dance music never stays the same, it’s always in flux … it’s made in response to the dancefloor!”

Rumoured to have the blue-prints for Krang's TechnoDrome, stolen straight from Dimension X, he’s the type of guy who exudes so much coolness that he adds whole countries on Facebook at one time instead of just people. Always up for a party and a Tequila shot or two this is the guy who we always call first, both before and after a night out…
