Our News

Dear Friends,

It has been a while since our last mailout and even longer since our last event, and we know many of you are missing that special Luminopolis magic. Sadly there will be no Luminopolis events this year, but we hope to bring you some good news in due course. At the moment the Luminopolis community is still in the fields and enjoying what so far has been a great summer weather wise, although with the sad absence of many smaller festivals priced out by rising policing costs, including Cambridge’s Strawberry Fayre, Glade festival, and Big Green Gathering. We hope they find a way to keep going.

A few of the Luminopolis crew put together a tribute area to the late Fraser Clark at this year’s Buddhafield festival, which featured talks and discussions about the man and his work in pioneering the conscious partying scene which both Buddhafield and Luminopolis are part of. Some other conscious events coming up which we would like to recommend to you include Sunrise OffGrid, Waveform Festival, and the Festival of Life. More on those below.

We were also inspired to see the Democracy Village peace camp appear and manage to stay in Parliament Square over the summer. The camp has now been evicted, but the campaign for real democracy, peace, justice, and environmental protection continues with regular People’s Assemblies every Saturday afternoon in Victoria Tower Gardens, right next to Parliament, from midday. All are welcome so go along and experience consensus decision-making.

With light, love, and fulfilling experiences…
The Luminopolis team.

Luminopolis is a magickal indoor festival organised by our community for our community aiming to inspire, uplift & unite. We grew from The Synergy Project. We are now Luminopolis, City of Light.
