Dropped Pin, near Gaćeško Selo
We are happy to announce FREEMENTAL Festival, established by long-standing friends from Saso Mange Soundsystem and Hypnodelix, trance lovers and organizers in collaboration with River Festival. We are combining forces because we want to bring you this new and exciting story. Freemental Festival represents great opportunity for good psychedelic fun and relaxed chilling.
Located near gorgeous river Mrežnica which gives ambient that is true to the dynamic music story, sorrounded by nature that deserves maximum respect and preserving. Imagined as a place of psychedelic pilgrim gathering in a kingdom of hammocks, it represents the platform for presentation of regional artists but it doesn't exclude foreign names, psy legends and new, fresh faces.
Through music we love to create the story, so on psy floor you will be overcome with the sounds of Progressive, Full On, Forest and other psychedelic makeshifts, and for a more intimate atmosphere we have prepared little forest corner with indispensable downtempo and chai tea. This is an opportunity to loosen our brain circuits and begin first ever edition of FreeMental Festival, an unforgettable psychedelic event!
In the beginning (be ni gi ni ng) there was chaos.
From the murk of the abyss, nothingness has yawned creating a sound, mechanical oscillation of the matter and from its resonant frequency originated the Sun. Beams of light have been spilled through the universe, mountains floated on air, beasts have spoken backwards, and the gods have fallen on vertex. Doors of the horizon were opened. Clouds hid the sky, the stars fell to the earth. Constellations were shaken, the underground silenced. Soundsystem was born.
Man knew it was good.
Saso Mange was his name and it quickly became a synonim for „have it all“ and „three hundred miracles“.
In reality, it is a team comprised of time bandits, devoted technicians, great philosophers and combiners addicted to realisation of quality sound made for good fun of modern pilgrims-in the clubs, mountains, woods and meadows, funerals, weddings and birthdays. In the words of the ancients, Samo Tvrdo!
The collective from Zagreb, consisting of five friends whose auditive experience at parties and festivals is inadequate.
They are engaged in visual experimentation in decorating space since 2012. Area 51 is mainly in charge of the creative creation of psychedelic decorations,they are also very acquainted with a chill flors where everyone can find their zen. Most of the time they are decorating Hypnodelix's parties, but their work can also be seen on various parties such as La fiesta NYE, Tamna Tvar, Pistolero, Oddvod, Goulash disco, Hartera, Tydes of Youth and many others.
