In 2022, the team behind Elements Festival is expanding into new musical territory. Joining forces with the talented events professionals behind Eden, Elements will be co-presenting PsyDen – a monthly smorgasbord of Psy Trance, Progressive, and Bush Techno for music fans to feast on. This new partnership is launching on Friday December 3rd, 2021, and is serving as the warm-up party for the fifth instalment of Elements Festival.
Fans of Psy Trance and its adjacent genres will likely recognise PsyDen as a mainstay of Queensland’s music scene that ticks all the boxes except for regularity. Both Elements and Eden saw the importance of developing this valuable event into the powerful musical force it could be. In the spirit of creativity, collaboration seemed like the most logical way to trigger PsyDen’s evolution.
Since its inception in 2017, Elements has grown from a yearly to a twice-yearly festival, featuring a carefully curated musical line-up complemented by endless expressions of creativity. Nurturing the festival through this growth is a crew of designers, artists, and professionals who have decades of combined experience in the entertainment industry.
Equally experienced, the Eden team has become a driving force in Queensland’s music scene, treating locals to quality acts from Australia and around the world. Though they have a focus on deep house, trance, and progressive, Eden is also the only brand to host regular Psy Trance events on the Gold Coast.
The ethos behind this new PsyDen evolution is to showcase the best local, domestic, and international artists who are creating waves with underground sounds. Each night will be carefully curated to create a sumptuous sonic journey that folds the psychedelic genres into one another like musical origami.
In the wake of the pandemic, the need for events like this is stronger than ever. Queensland has an arts scene in desperate need of revival and creatives in need of a platform. PsyDen will be a space for up-and-coming artists to share their talent and collaborate with established giants in the industry. It will also give attendees a regular connection with music they love that isn’t always easy to find on the Gold Coast.
When: Friday 3rd December 2021
Where: Arcade Nightclub, Gold Coast Qld.
