The Synergy Project

Synergy is a magical indoor festival, combining musicians, Djs, Vjs, performers, and artists from all corners of creativity, joined by various proactive NGO’s and charities with the expressed aim to make a difference.

Synergy strives to create an optimistic approach in raising awareness on the many crucial issues affecting our world today. The events gather some of the UK’s leading creative multimedia organizations joined by international NGO’s such as Oxfam, Survival, Speak, WWF, Greenpeace, Arc, Campaign Against Climate Change and many more.

In a society which generally perceives clubbing as a form of escapism associated with values of transgression, Synergy re-invents the clubbing experience by transforming it into an ‘educational’, awareness raising tool. Although Synergy has a vibrant cross-generational and multi cultural following it aims to target primarily today’s youth with its inspiring message, an audience that might otherwise be reluctant to receive, respect, and incorporate such information, in particular when proposed by conventional sources.

Now in its 5th year running and with a wealth of experience and depth the Synergy Project continues to inspire people from all walks of life to re-evaluate their views on club culture and beyond…
