Friday, June 23 | 7-10 PM | Pack Square, Asheville

Dear StarTriber,

There is something of medicinal value when we gather in the spirit of dance under the open sky. Like we know, dancing with positive intention does something signature for the mind, body, and spirit, and afterward we return to our lives forever a little differently. You are warmly invited for a special experience - and YOU are part of what makes it that way.


  • Door 6:15pm. Opening ceremony 7pm!
  • Rain, snow, or shine, it's on!
  • StarTribe dances are drug and alcohol free.
  • Bring your own water, and prepare to sweat.
  • For children ten and under, please bring sound protective ear muffs and keep them with you at all times - hooray for safety for the little StarTribers!

FOUR of the reasons it would be nuts to miss out on this special dance:

  • StarTribe is a community of the coolest, nicest people.
  • Camaraderie on the dance floor is unrivaled therapy for the mind, body, and spirit.
  • Mikaya and Illusion of Duality are playing LIVE on the most badass 22 speaker sound system, at the coolest venue in the southeast... for just $20. Nuts.
  • Dance in the great outdoors, the StarTribe way, is a superior experience, versus indoor bars, clubs, and venues.


Mikaya Swabb...

...founder of Dance Church Maui, uses a spectrum of musical genres to deepen somatic embodiment through movement, breath and presence. He has a deep understanding of set arrangements for conscious dance events, yoga classes and ceremonies through his 8+ years of experience. Mikaya's mixes inspire meditation through movement in ways that widen the scope of one's self-awareness and self-expression. His mixes use a spectrum of musical genres to deepen somatic embodiment through movement, breath and presence.

Using a large bell curve progression his DJ sets begin peacefully, build momentum and contrast, and then land softly with resolution and grace. He has a gift for finding beautiful tracks that cover a broad spectrum of musical genres like global bass, tropical house, techno, glitch hop, downtempo, classical and ambient.

Illusion of Duality...

...can be found somewhere in between the Bass & the Treble. Bridging the gap between electronic and organic, he has been on an ever evolving musical journey to truly discover his sound. Born & raised on the west coast playing strings, percussion & keys Illusion of Duality honed his craft on the decks far before electronic music was popular in the early 2000’s. This alchemical artist uses frequency embedded in a universe of rhythm to navigate between the Darkness & the Light.

Many moons of living the nomadic lifestyle have revealed a multitude of music from distant lands. On the dance floor Illusion of Duality’s worldly sound will guide you on an adventure of downtempo bass, tribal house and breaks sure to lead you “home”. Beyond the good or the evil, to a place where we are all ONE.
