Luminopolis

Friday, 3rd October 2008
Starting at 10pm and finishing at 8am
SEOne Club London Bridge, Weston Street, SE1 London UK

With another summer has gone by and after many adventures in the fields the we are preparing for another magical season of your favourite indoor festival!

Following a trademark dispute earlier this year with the Camberwell-based Synergy Centre, The Synergy Project has agreed to change its name to Luminopolis (meaning “city of light”). Although often confused due their similar names and shared roots, The Synergy Project and The Synergy Centre have always been separate organisations – our name change simply reflects this and clears up the confusion – The Synergy Project is dead! Long live Luminopolis!!

However rest assured that nothing about the event itself will change and Luminopolis will still be organised by us – the same production crew that ran The Synergy Project. We will continue to gather an ever growing community of creative, and pro-active organizations involving musicians, producers, Djs, Vjs, performers, healers, organizers, activists, intellectuals, and forward thinking individuals, coming together to promote and support the work of NGO’s and charities, and hopefully inspire many to get involved in the ever growing movement for social and environmental regeneration.
