THE NIGHT AS IT WILL UNFOLD
At Mantra, we want to rethink party away from superficial hedonism and bring a more meaningful angle to inspire positive change.
Get ready for a mini festival-style journey of soulful inspiration and dancefloor action punctuated with an array of cold pressed juices from Luhv Drinks and Naturally brewed botanical ale from Binary as well as low abv cocktails. A welcome cocktail and 3 'Luhv shots' are included with your ticket.
3 TED talk style speakers will open the night covering themes such as Ayahuasca & alternative medicine, dream incubation and new definitions of masculinity.
The night will then take you to the dancefloor where Trutopia will transport the crowd with their uplifting soundscapes.
To complete the festival vibe, expect spoken words, art installations and live performances.
There will be delicious vegetarian food available.
Mantra is a collective of engaged citizens who see the value of partying in a constructive and conscious way. We aim to create a series of hybrid events that bring the stimulation of festivals into the urban setting by fusing inspiring talks, arts & poetry with an uplifting party spirit. As a new event cycle, our goal is to build a community of like-minded people who believe having fun and trying to make a difference can go hand in hand. These festival infused half day events will bring to life themes centered on a healthy mind in a healthy body, participatory citizenship and the power of collective action. By combining mediums we aim to create a provocative multisensory experience through: inspiring talks, DJ sets, art installations, performances, cocktail juice, networking and more....
