UbikEklektik is organised by a small but immensely diverse group of musicians, artists, and eager volunteers, coming from different backgrounds, but with a common ambition to create a community that that connects different art forms and people from all over the world.
We are evolving this universe following three guiding principles.
Based on our past experience, we firmly believe in limited scale festivals These events create an intimate atmosphere, in which each and every individual can easily add something to the whole.
We intend to bridge the gap between underground artists and genres that are presumably hard to attach to each other.
We are giving exposure to up and coming, eccentric projects. We are providing a radically free space for self-expression. The objective of UbikEklektik is to expand minds by the creation of a collective experience with the help of all the artists and participants. We are convinced that in a festival state of mind, the exposure to arts is amazingly grateful.
Ubik is the ever changing universe where UbikEklektik takes place. The emphasis is on creating our own cosmos based on the participants ideas, and we welcome everyone to take a role and live with its narrative. Last year we introduced two tribes, whom this year will be joined by two new cultures, wanderers of our universes.
III. UbikEklektik Festival | 30 Aug - 02 Sept 2018 | Zsámbék
The four tribes of our story – Deepfields, Vuur, Taka Tuka and Fríz each mastering their own art form while connected to a natural force. They are existing in parallel universes, and have a distinct culture of their own.
Each tribe has the incentive to meet with different cultures, learn from them and eventually form a constellation of a common knowledge. The parallel universes are divided by invisible walls throughout the year, blocking the route for our peoples to connect with each other.
UbikEklektik is supposed to be the cohesive force, which opens the gate between the disconnected worlds.
The following four tribes will each have a particular location within the festival, which they create on their own and where they can introduce their culture.
Deepfields is the ancient civilization of the air, they are creators of many of the first traditions of Ubik. They float with ease through times and ages, contemplating about the essence of existence. They are wise philosophers devoted to poetry, and deep electronic music, with an intention to help to expand one another’s mind.
Vuur is the tribe of the fire, the element of energy that fuels the spirit. Vuur has a substantial effect on its surroundings, a tribe you can’t miss for good. Their craft is painting, they are not leaving a single event without impressive decorations: you’ll see definite marks of this tribe throughout UbikEklektik.
Taka Tuka, the folk of the earth, architects of their own special atmosphere. In the blink of an eye, they create and install unique objects anywhere. Taka Tuka is the patron of sculpture and construction. You’ll be glad to meet this tribe of charming wanderers, and be amazed by their hospitality and atypical installations.
Fríz are the people of the waters, a tribe appearing in different shapes and forms. As variable as a group can be, they encourage performances of any kind. You may find them next to the waters of the Ubikverse, and join their dances, artistic rituals, and ceremonies.
We were looking for a long time for a special location to be the host of this year’s UbikEklektik. We found the ex-military base of Zsámbék, a place in perfect tune with our goals and objectives. The base has been transformed to a theater camp, a self-supplying cultural community in harmony with its natural surroundings and military heritage.
