Lost and found, some more to come


That was an absolute success TEAM.

The level of production shoot out this weekend at Valley Views Glamping for all the professionals and volunteers exceeded all expectations.

And the most wonderful thing I heard along the weekend is that everyone loved over everything THE PEOPLE... Yes, all of you made it special. I heard that so many people made new and interesting connections and had awesome conversations...

Special shoot out to the amazing visuals and laser show by Ethan and Ed, the impecable sound by Fidelity and the quality of the music for all music artist, also to the performers that added a final spark on the visual show. The incredible decorated UV hole by Steam Room aka my loved friend Thiago. The workers who stayed till 2 am putting together all the pieces of the stage I created. And Ruari for managing and bringing to life The nest, which offered the best chilling area I could dream with. Also food and vendors with top quality art like Luna and F***y, and Ylse and Tun for the Kali's Den.
Neverending thanks to David for creating a jummy vegan kitchen to keep the care of all the team and artist, and Megs to organise such a journey of workshops that people enjoyed and apreciated. Thanks to the drummers that engaged all the dancefloor for the african dance and Travis for welcoming everyone at the gate. Also the care angels who where on point for the couple interactions needed, and the waste crew which also told me almost no garbage where needed to remove. A note here that the owners where tottally amazed that they didnt found a single piece of rubbish in the floor along the weekend. Wow.

Special mention to Tom Hardy who was the first and the last on the land ready to help in all ways. What a machine men!

Lost and found will be shared soon along footage from the weekend on the Soundation page and insta. If you have any extra footage please send to [email protected]

I get told I do too long post, but sincerely I think all extra job done was worth it, cause the message about our values reached out and the vibe on the weekwnd was the absolute highlight.

Thank you

TechMeOver at Friday 20th October
Starting labor weekend full power with a flavoured Techno night of faster and industrial sounds
🔥10pm Slimberley
Hailing from the north east of England and now a Queenstown local. Slimberley grew up listening to trance, hard house and happy hardcore, which often flows into her well known tech house sound. Taking music inspiration from the likes of Mark Broom, Sasha & Digweed and Riva Star to name a few, she definitely likes a harder style of house and techno.
She’s a regular at the George Fm pop ups around town and has recently played Electric Rush, Digital Love and This Kind Day. Slimberley’s guaranteed to get your feet moving early doors!
🔥11:30 Ally Kruz
My love for electronic music started when I was 16 years old and soon after that, I started DJing (I'm 27 now). I play mostly techno and recently started mixing a bit of psytech and psytrance in my sets. I won 2 national DJ contests (one in my home country Slovenia and one in Croatia). With my friends, we organized electronic music events and festivals in Slovenia. I Performed in all the major clubs in Slovenia and Croatia and shared the stage with world-known DJ.s such as; Deborah de Luca, Stella Bossi, Marika Rossa, Xenia, Pan-Pot, Fernanda Martinz, Marcel Fengler, Marko Faraone, Mark Knight. and others...
Last year I released my first track Parallel Universum.
🔥1am Modom
A techno DJ based in Christchurch, New Zealand with a passion for dance, EDM and mixing inspired by the European and Detroit Techno scenes.
Drawn to the unconventional and unpredictable, she serves up to her audience a smorgasbord of palatable tracks ranging from acidy, raw and hypnotic to hard, driving and industrial, often with smatterings of delicious fruitiness thrown in for good measure.
🔥2:30am Sandrita
Flavoured 4x4, combining old-school style with a variety of tastes. She revolutionizes the dancefloor with acid touches, electro sounds, and happy beats, each infused with her sweetened signature. Her sets range from uplifting hard groove to Hypnotic upbeat Techno, occasionally exploring a crossover of geners.

How to miss it?
