// Welcome Seeker to Area 51 (OFFICIAL LAUNCH).

For as long as humans have contemplated the cosmos, we have wondered if we are alone in the universe.

Ancient mythologies and contemporary science fiction have presented imaginative answers over the years.

One thing seems certain; there is more than just earth. There are more worlds and the possibility to harvest life on other planets seems inevitable.
Our presence on earth is measured by the value of how we live our lives. However many found an exception to ordinary life with the ability to expand their consciousness threw alternative forms of meditation
and mind altering states.

Area 51 is one the greatest stories told and known for introducing some of humanities greatest and unanswered theories. Now it is time to invite you on a journey to explore these worlds.
Without bias or judgment, this is an invitation to travel with us, to find unique places to explore unique perception and other planes.

Our aim is to bring to you, artists known around the world for creating mind-bending rhythms and help you reach a state of self exploration. Using the latest in broadcasting technology, we offer this to you
at a fraction of big ticketed festival prices. Furthermore we believe diversity has been lost over the years. Recent trends show common events cater only for 1, 2 or 3 genres the most. We believe music and
genres on all levels can help the mind explore and hence, one should not focus on just one - but embrace many, be open for the new and the old ways. With this said we would like to take you on a journey that
is not only visually stimulating, but will also caress your ears with genres such as Drum & Bass, Deep and Mind Haunting House, Banging Techno to the Subtle, Uplifting Melodic Trance going to full Psychedelic
sounds with the exploration of various sub cultures along the way.

Area 51 creates a humble surrounding, providing you the opportunity to inner exploration, accessing a space and freedom for your mind to explore and potentially awaken or feed your 3rd Eye to new unexplored dimensions.

To begin this journey we thought of no better place where old memories have been created and cherished than ROOM 680 - a creative venue to let our ideas and imagination run free over 3 generously sized areas.
The venue features a lush outdoor chilled area as well as plenty of comfy seating in the main room. This will all be complemented by a full industrial and mystical art display upon entering for the first time
thanks to a state of the art visual/decor team, G-WIZ. A State of the art Sound System in conjunction with a Laser spectacle provided by Jonny Blaze from BlaZin LaSers to mesmerize your senses not to mention
a complete multiple Visual Art display by E-Fekt Productions sure to make you question your own visions! And finally, all of your warm smiles, laughter and light will be captured throughout the night by our
beautiful photographer and artist Miss Frenchie from Beauty Sniper Photography.

Mindwave, the person who revived this telepathic force, is Anton Maiko, originally from Russia, who immigrated to Israel in 1991.
He fell in love with electronic music when he was 6 years old, through his older brother.
Names like The Prodigy, Scooter and later on MFG and Astral Projection and Cosma inspired his understanding that these beats, especially when they don't have traditional lyrics, can transcend to huge crowds.
Already at the age of 13, he started to play the keyboard trusting his intuitions and teaching himself, while exploring new methods of composition.
A few years after that he wanted to improve his sound skills and studied at BPM School, for a more refined sound.

His Psytrance-Progressive magic was revealed in his debut album Escape from Reality in 2009, which was released at Phonokol.
It was a rare and unique demonstration of superb music that opened a channel of communication that lasts till this day.
A year after, in 2010, Mindwave released his second album Awaken, which made an even wider path towards people across the world.
Before releasing his third album in 2012, Concept of Freedom, Maiko conducted a thorough field research in order to reach the highest level of connection between his mind and the crowd's mind.
His report can be heard in this album, where various interpretations of Freedom can be heard, felt and danced.
People across the globe have already experienced these sensations in various festivals such as
O.Z.O.R.A Festival (Hungary), Vuuv Experience (Germany), Aurora (Greece), Spiritual Healing (Germany), Boom (Portugal) and many more.
