- Midnight Sun Festival -
Shantarolf's first meeting with psychedelic trance was in the early 2000. After participating in his first forest party in 2003 (Trolltyg 3) he began to play psychedelic disco tunes on parties in 2004. The passion of synchronising beats with dancefloors came to his life at the same time that he started to cook together underground events. A mind programmed to organize, blended with a passion for psychedelia and underground dance music culture - The result is more then a decade of initiating and organizing events, mostly in the forest. As a DJ he seem to attract both dark- and more lightheaded sounds into his sets. These days finding the tracks he likes the most - somewhere in the forest/twillight zone.
His life - and musical journey began in Sweden, but as the nomadic soul he is, travelling the world (and beyond!) was always essential. At some point he found peace in Norway, where he resides nowadays. Over the years he blasted at least 100 partys in 13 countries - from small intuitive gatherings to festival mainstages. But most of all he shared his sets where they fit the best - deep in the (scandinavian) forest. Apart from playing at forest underground gatherings, he played at some massive warehouse/squatraves and clubs in mayor cities around europe.
The most breathtaking festivals he played at so far is; KOSMOS (Finland) / YAGA (Lithuania) / UNIVERSO PARALELLO (Brazil) / COSMIC CONVERGENCE (Guatemala) / MO:DEM (Croatia) / FREE EARTH (Greece) / GALAXY EVOLUTION (Goa/India)
Last but not least, he is a resident DJ on the events he organize himself;
Co~founder of a magical forest gathering in Sweden called "ANDRA VAERLDEN".
He is also co~founder of "MIDNIGHT SUN FESTIVAL" in Norway - "where the Sun never sets".
