GOA

  • PARTY / DJ & Artist Profiles

Liquid Sky parties are organised by the group's founder, Axailes Solar and a team of talented artists with a common vision. Liquid Sky showcases a collective of Goa's popular and international talented DJs and its repertoire covers styles from techno, minimal, tech house, electro to the freshest of actual electronic tendencies.
 

OVERVIEW & BACKGROUND

Liquid Sky was created by Axailes Solar as a platform to bring together diverse music styles, artistic expressions and people from different cultures and backgrounds onto one common scene: the dance-floor. Originally this ideal manifested in an unique beach shack in Arambol Beach called Liquid Sky. The bar operated through the night and became a celebrated venue in Goa until it closed in 2006.

The name Liquid Sky has been used inappropriately by others on a few occasions. It's necessary to make clear today, that Liquid Sky is not a venue but in the last 7 years it has been operating as an ensemble rather than a destination.


Hosting legendary parties across venues in Goa (9Bar, Hill Top, West End, UV Bar, Marbela Beach, Sea Horse Anjuna, Panorama etc) the Liquid Sky Collective comprises DJs of varied repertoires (trance, minimal, techno, tech-house, etc), as well artists, designers and performers.

Liquid Sky parties are extravaganza events, and can operate booking talented artists, introducing new talents to the Goan scene, sound equipment rent, sound installation, acoustic management, complete stage design, vjs, fire dancers, photographers, light-show, music boat trips and events as: openings, vernissages, fashion shows, festivals, etc. They run outstanding full promotion campaigns and also deal with bar management and catering.
