OUR 'WHY'   ::   FESTIVAL DETAILS   ::   CONTACT FORM

On behalf of our current partners which include A Greener Festival, Bye Bye Plastic Foundation, ECO-Products®, The Fantasy Foundation and our extended family at Electronic Music Alliance, we extend to you this exclusive invitation to perform a very special #PlayitIVward set at Elektrik Fantasy IV

in the name of the only dance floor that matters.

our planet home.

We at ElektrikEventz have been a part of Underground Dance Culture since the 80's. Since our inception in 2013, we have been steadily growing, producing original, all-inclusive Conscious Dance Culture gatherings along the East and Gulf Coasts with live broadcasts via our global radio station emrg: Elektrik Metro Radio Global currently in 68 countries with 100k listeners worldwide, and in fall 2021 we are bringing our flagship #FloGrown underground electronic music festival, now in its 4th year, to its new home in South Florida.

What started off as an idea to provide a fresh alternative to the average Halloween party shenanigans along the Emerald Coast a few years ago, with just over 600 amazing guests, has now evolved into something so much more substantial: an environmental partnership and global giveback wrapped in the shiny package of in a sunshine-to-moonlight magickal atmosphere of Unity and Imagination, fueled by sound and visuals that will elevate your consciousness, reignite your passion for Life and reconnect you with Gaia as you reunite with The Ocean Goddess at an island masquerave filled with decadently costumed souls undergrounding to the most luscious house & techno, surrounded by Nature's 4 elements, and it will be broadcast and streamed live around the world.

You've PLAYed countless events and festivals that

contribute to polluting the earth.

WE INVITE YOU play one that helps heal it.

As many of you are known philanthropic artists, you know that we are experiencing the greatest Shift of our time; away from greed, consumption and separatism to mindfulness, sustainability and unity. The global demand by dance music fans for more substance and consciousness in their music and the festivals they attend is growing quickly; priorities are shifting and we as event producers and artists must do our part. Over the past 4+ years we have been working feverishly to bring a ”new" FloGrown music festival to South Florida, a region rich with multiple cultures, dance music history, fans and some of the world’s most beautiful and precious ecology - all of which are in dire need of our help.

 

South Florida is the #1 vacation destination in the world

and it's also #1 on the chopping block

FOR climate IMPACT. 

Warming waters, Frankenstorm hurricanes, sea level rise and wildlife extinction are all a result of our dependency on fossil fuels, our throwaway mentality, greed  and destructive conditioning to single-use plastics.

Elektrik Fantasy IV is a 100% single-use plastics-free music festival benefit

As ElektrikEventz, producers of Elektrik Fantasy and purveyors of Conscious Dance Culture,

we know this is the platform where we - united together - can bring awareness

and facilitate authentic Change through the Music.

Music festivals for pure profit that leave tons of pollution in their wake are on borrowed time. And they know it.

 

It's Catching on...


Since we first initiated the Conservation Conversation back in 2016, the rise in 'environmental concern' by festival brands here in Miami has been evident; however, it is in the end production where we see the true intention and not the greenwash promotion by promoters or their PR firms. We've watched as individual South Florida cities, beach towns and communities have adopted the use of paper straws over plastic straws, yet their bars, restaurants, nightclubs - even the music festivals that scream how "green"they are - still serve up the plastic cups, to-go containers, utensils and plastic bottles of water.  

​We hold our breaths as we witness the more established festivals state their intentions of 'going green', making varied adjustments such as #noplasticstraws, or recycle coins, or bring-your-own-refillable-bottle, and of course the entry level standard #leavenotrace policy, etc. But because these festival brands are established, with big money beverage sponsors who are proven top plastic polluters of our world, implementation of more sustainable practices becomes a slow and tedious transition over time; perhaps too little, too late.

And although we already have a few years under our belt, we are still fresh enough to stand at the precipice of Change and successfully implement the sustainable practices the other festivals cannot simply by cultivating partnerships with the right companies and entities.

But in this vast ocean of festivals, artists and underground media

real change is happening

Even Resident Advisor has taken up the underground topic of electronic music festivals and their role in climate change impact. Read the article and watch the mini-doc here.

And we absolutely stand with and support the #plasticfreedjbooth and #ecorider campaigns recently launched

by our earth-loving friends at ByeByePlastic.life, founded by one of our favorite #Artivists, Vivie-Ann Bakos of BLOND:ISH, and all the amazing underground artists that have jumped on board and vowed to ban single-use plastics from their DJ booths at every gig.

Rest assured Elektrik Fantasy is the first of its kind: an underground music festival and MasqueRave that practices sustainability (zero single-use plastics, sustainable vendors and vegan offerings), blending organic and electronic in a way never before experienced in North America while actually giving back to our Planet Home. From our partners to our vendors, visual artists and performers, we have ensured that we only work with like-minds to create a festival where Underground Dance Culture truly meets Sustainability. Our vibe appeals to conscious connoisseurs of quality intelligent Electronic Dance Music, and those who long to be a part of something more substantial, who want to make a genuine difference, who truly want to elevate, connect with themselves, others and Nature through the Music, have an unforgettable experience while doing it, and who believe - as we do -

in the Music as a catalyst for authentic change.

WE BELIEVE

SOUTH FLORIDA DESERVES BETTER

AND

It's time for a different kind of Dance Music Festival to grow roots here...
A Festival that vibrates on a higher frequency and that will alter the festival landscape

and our world

for the better.


It’s #TimeIVchange. 

It’s time to #rethinkfestivalimpact.

It's time to Believe in Fantasy

and change our reality.

PLEASE NOTE:

 

In keeping with our sustainable mission, and making sure our artists are in alignment with the cause, it is important to discuss travel.

While we typically fund for artist RT flight only, 1 room/2 nights lodging, we highly encourage ground travel over air travel because of its damaging impact on our environment. To maintain this standard, and to help offset your donated set, our team is willing to assist yours and utilize our promoter contacts in booking other U.S. dates within 2 weeks prior to Elektrik Fantasy IV, outside a 100 mile radius of our location.

Also, all contracted performing artists must abide by festival sustainability standards and reasonable non-compete clause.

Thanks to our friends and collaborators at Electronic Music Alliance, we even have some suggestions on how to "Green Your Rider" for Elektrik Fantasy IV. We also invite you to join our friends at ByeByePlastic in adopting the #Ecorider - perhaps you can even be an Ambassador for M.A.D.E (Musicians Against Destroying Earth), our soon-to-be launched organization, carrying the positive changes with you for all your future performances and inspiring others.

Please complete our form at your earliest convenience so we may ensure your costs are fundable.

Further discussions are welcomed.
