ECSTATIC BEACH PARTY
Dear conscious people: Dance to express, not to impress.
Imagine an ecstatic beach party in 26 degrees, on white sand, shorts, palm trees, ecstatic dance, yoga, chanting, active meditation, DJs, sauna, and conscious people – That's what Ecstatic Beach Party, the official after party of Biohacker Summit is all about (also open for the public, so invite your conscious friends).
Dear guests, the official after party of Biohacker Summit is all about authentic human experience and connection.
Our event starts with an Ecstatic Dance journey, a liberating expression of dance and movement!
Ecstatic dance is a free-form movement journey with music spanning various genres, tempos, emotions and intensities. No speaking or disruption of personal space allowed during ecstatic dance – Come early to get the instructions how it works.
After the Ecstatic Dance we move on to a live concert of sounds inspired by indigineous tribes, zen buddhist monasteries, electronic music, trance and breaks. Zen Buddhist monk & beatboxer Yogetsu Akasaka will guide an epic zen meditation that turns into a wild party!
Dress code: conscious beach party with a cool mask to highlight your eyes and intention.

Live performance: YOGETSU AKASAKA (JPN)
Yogetsu Akasaka is a Japanese Zen Buddhist monk who creates music for meditations. He combines Buddhist chanting with beatboxing. With use of a loop machine, he layers sounds and chants from his own voice. He became a Zen Buddhist monk after traveling eight different cities in the world as a beatboxer. During his intense practice as a Zen Buddhist monk, he also had an opportunity to practice in Zen centers in the United States, including San Francisco Zen Center, known for the place where Steve Jobs used to attend. The experience of mixed culture of Japanese traditional Zen Buddhism and American organic & sustainable community, which is from counterculture in the '60s, inspired him as a Zen Music Artist. After leaving his practice period in the Zen monastery, he decided to create his music combining beatboxing and Buddhist chanting. He thought it was the best way to take away people's suffering and confer peace.
Ecstatic Dance: DJ MILLA LINNA (FIN)
Milla Linna creates intense Ecstatic Dance journeys that take you to the wild and the vulnerable sides of you. Some people say she creates magic. And some say she brings out the animal. Her DJ sets are curated with love and sensitivity, focusing on what really feels good in the body. She always brings about a colorful dance journey with a good dose of crazy wild beats and liquid-movement-inspiring sweetness. She has been madly in love with dance for over 30 years and is the pioneer of Ecstatic Dance in Finland.
DJ set: DJ OlliS (FIN)
Dr. Olli Sovijärvi is also a DJ with the name OlliS. Growing in a very musical family and being predisposed to various kinds of music since a little kid has probably been the key factor of what OlliS is today. Over ten years of playing the piano and studying the theory of music have educated him on the ability to create something memorable and musically touching when performing as a DJ. A bi-monthly residency at Frisky Radio with a success show ‘Aurea Mediocritas’ has been ‘on-air’ already for over ten years. Also a six-year career at Finnish Radio One, YleX has left an unforgettable touch into Finnish electronic music scene as it is now. OlliS represents an integral perspective of progressive house, techno & psy music, a style that is built on strong bass lines, epic melodies and a groovy rhythm.
Live performance: VASKILINTU (FIN)
“Vaskilintu" is the artist name of Magdalena Sofia, vocalist and earth-based ritualist. Vaski is an ancient finnish word that means copper, bronze and brass. Lintu means bird. Vaskilintu is inspired by the healing therapeutic aspects of ceremonial music, and the power of music that affects the emotional landscapes of the human psyche and trans-cultural sounds. Vaskilintu as performer brings forth myths and the archaic root touch to her singing that resonates and lingers long within.
DJ set: LAURA IHATSU (FIN)
Laura Ihatsu is a well-being coach, yoga & meditation teacher, martial arts ninja and a Dj. Her mission is to help people to embody the highest and fullest version of themselves. Laura offers elevating movement experiences that leave people feeling empowered and free.
Visual & kinetic DJ: RAY ARKAEI (POL)
