Our dancing ground is located under the cool shade of old pine and cork trees. An area for physical and spiritual sharing, a space dedicated to transcendence, just a few meters from the refreshing waters of the lake, cool in the day and cosy during the night.

The following list of acts are a true materialization of our effort and collective wishes.

We believe it truly represents the golden age of Psy-Trance we all miss and love so much.


Dancefloor Lineup

Blue Room Rec_UK


Is with an enormous sense of pride and accomplishment - we have a green light to include in our next edition's line-up, none other than Cydonia. So, it seems that our next ZNA edition will be blessed with the performance of its original creator
Dino Psaras and Steve Ronan, a duo who started performing in the beginning of the 90's under the name Ayahuasca.
Every edition we do our best to bring an artist with the power to revive the psychedelic sounds unleashed in the end of the 90's by the Atomic / Aurinko records family.
Atomic Records as a label, was responsible for designing and releasing a signature music language, explored at the time by the most heavy-weight producers.
Even though most of Cydonia’s material was released by Blue Room Records during the 90's, it was just after they signed under the Atomic Records label in '98 that most of us really started to dive into their work.
And it was as a part of the Atomic Records family that Cydonia blessed us with some of the best transitions yet heard by Man, varying from old school goa trance melodies to an intense industrial psychedelic goa music.
Looking back in retrospect we can safely say that this was one of the first significant evolutions that the psychedelic goa-trance scene went through. During these times some of the most skilled producers and DJ's committed themselves into exploring new horizons within the psychedelic music universe, opening the portals to other psy-dimensions and unexplored realities. Surfing on the quest for these new sensations Cydonia really broke the scale, ultimately shaping such a new and demanding scene.
We'll leave you here with a tasty spoiler - not only will this duo honor us with their Cydonia musical recipes, you can also expect to find in the menu some hidden sweets these guys baked as Ayahuasca, Tripster, Viper and Phreaky...
Make sure you allow yourself to experience such a special occasion.

The time has come for our ZNA biannual celebration to host one of the most charismatic and evolutionary artists on the trance scene.
Bill Halsey AKA Cosmosis and Mumbo Jumbo has razzled, dazzled and even sometimes crippled us with his astounding array of psychedelic weaponry. His amazing legacy speaks for itself. A true devotee to the psychedelic trance scene with over 25 years of experience, which makes him one of the few pioneer artists that still possesses the mastery to contribute to the evolution and the trend of this type of music.
At ZNA Gathering Bill will open up the portals to his Cosmology reality. A spaced-out colorful trip filled with some of his most known tracks and also some unknown secret melodies that will certainly leave our dancefloor in a pure state of trance.
ZNA land, shaded by a centennial forest and bathed by a beautiful lake, is just the perfect site to let yourself immerse in such a unique voyage - and we can't wait to share this moment with all of you, for the first time in the Zambu reality.
All we know is that it will be a true Intergalactic ride.
Flying Rhino Rec_AU


Gus has been active as a musician, producer and DJ for most of his life. Originally from Melbourne Australia, Gus shifted between Paris, New York and London, becoming a part of the burgeoning trance scene, working for all the labels involved at the time and becoming the in-house engineer at Youth's Butterfly Studios and Dragonfly Records.
Not only that, he also joined the legendary Slinky Wizard and became an in-house engineer/producer for Flying Rhino Records, releasing some projects under his own name like BUS, Stoop & Fidget and the incredible Zen Lemonade.

To the most avid Zambus out there, many of you might remember the epic morning performance from Slinky Wizard (with Gus Till & Ronnie Biggs) in our ZNA land back in 2015, as well as the Gus Till Flying Rhino DJ Set that spun at the beginning of that same night.

This time for his second appearance we can expect a full-blown, 3 hour ride that will take us deep inside Gus' world; this master will reveal to us a musical journey through his own Ozzy signature music, solely with exclusive tracks from the legacy he created. Expect nothing but an incredible and perfect mix between the minimal and progressive trance, mixed together with the deep and not-so-obvious side of the old-school Goa trance he is well known for.
As you can imagine this is going to be yet another unique and rare performance, not to be missed at our next Retro-Futuristic celebration - we can't wait to share with you all what is certainly going to be one of the most memorable acts ever at our gathering!

YoYo Records_ISR


Finally the almighty project from Israel known since the late 90´s as Infected Mushroom will perform on our sacred retro futuristic ground.
This duo needs no introduction. Infected Mushroom is considered by the industry as a class A act in the electronic music scene, carving their own path which brought them a huge amount of success and a ton of worldwide recognition. Although many of us may feel that their unparalleled mastery and production quality has been shifting away and somehow diverging from its initial psytrance genre, we know that they still - and certainly will always - have a very special place in their hearts for the scene that they helped shape decades ago.

We believed that there is no better place to experience their act than ZNA Gathering. Why? Because we will be granted a tailored performance by these guys like they have never done before. At ZNA they will unleash all the raw and classic infected melodies crafted in their younger years, which will surely uplift our dancefloor to a higher level of psychedelia.
We hope you will get excited by this special gift as much as we were, when we realized this group was looking forward to conduct such a unique psy-experience, specially designed for the Zambu crowd.

Ceiba Records_USA


Together with Goa Gil and Ariene, Peter Ziegelmeier rewrote the history of our scene. Known as Kode IV, and from his projects The Nommos and Ceiba, this mastermind dedicated his whole life to spreading the psychedelic experience and vision all over our worldwide community. With the dream of introducing Goa Psy Trance to his country EUA, he founded a label called Ceiba Records in the mid 90's that had a huge role in the expansion of our scene on the land of freedom and opportunities, gathering thousands of supporters and enthusiasts.

Since then Peter has been traveling the world, shaping his legacy and polishing his skills, making him one of the most distinguished artists our scene has ever witnessed.

Many of us will never forget the epic act he gave back in Boom Festival 2002, a memory that will be kept on our hearts for the years to come... These are the moments we strive for, and that's why, almost 20 years after that memorable act, we decided to do all that's zambuanly possible to make sure we could all be able to experience Peter's musical genius once again. You can be certain that this psychedelic rider will take our retro-futuristic ship beyond the limits of our imagination.

A rare opportunity not to be missed!

Atomic Records_DE


The name Mark Van der Vlugt was always a guarantee of exclusively intense quality. Every time one of us saw him on a line-up, we knew we were about to experience a massive psychedelic ride where industrial soundscapes met the heavy environment that the best tech and psychedelic trance producers where crafting, with the support of magnificent and legendary labels such as Aurinko or Atomic records. These guys had a special type of knack for producing such crazy music.
This even increased the scene's expectations regarding how distant and deep psychedelic music can take you. They were certainly responsible for many of our best and craziest moments on the dancefloor. And as you know, this is exactly what drives us... bringing back such nostalgic moments into our lives is what makes the ZNA Gathering so unique and special.
So, it is with a huge honour that we have Marc Van Der Vlugt accept our invitation. Especially because his life and choices drifted him away from the psychedelic stages, long ago.
But from what we feel, this time he is going to be different. He was really happy with our invitation and decided that ZNA Gathering 2021 was going to be the perfect time and place to unleash all his mastery.
We know for a fact that he is already preparing for us a musical journey using all his rare and priceless psychedelic trance collection that he kept intact since his glory days - we even risk stating, as a result from our conversations, that we might even listen to tracks, or versions of tracks that most of us never heard before. Music that back in the days was made exclusive for artists like him to perform, without a label or distributors' industry.
Well one thing is for granted - this will certainly be a genuine monster performance that will hit many of us by surprise. Another one of those moments that are only possible to experience at ZNA Gathering.
Spiral Trax Records_SE


As many of you already know, everytime night falls at the ZNA Gathering dancefloor, lighter melodies fade away and music gets deeper and darker, making place for a perfect atmosphere for us to connect with ourselves and explore our most profound thoughts.

This introspective reality acts as a cleansing ritual that lets us play with our dark sides and release all the bad energies, making each music a unique and personal psychedelic trip. It's during these challenging moments that the most skilled producers are able to show how slow-paced music can become so powerful and loud, reverberating in your whole body and soul.

Wanting to give us the best edition so far we've invited one of the finest Maestros of the scene, directly from the headquarters of the legendary Spiral Trax Records (when it was conducted by our dear friend and Maestro Dj Anti) considered as one of the biggest Swedish musicians within this style. An artist with a legacy that makes us shiver everytime we are exposed to it.

Magnus Andersson, a.k.a. NOMA, re-enforced the paradigm of Psychedelic trance by the end of the 90´s by turning it upside-down and exploring a new deep and hypnotic side of music, as if in contrast with the uplifting melodic approach so common until that time.

At ZNA you can expect from Magnus himself a specially tailored 2 hours Producer Set, a dark ride that will take us on a exploration through the realms of psychedelia packed with the some of the most awesome monster tracks ever created by this man.
Join us during this exclusive appearance and get prepared to go Noma deep. We know we will.

Acidance Records_RU


Even though Alex Kurkin decided to carefully choose his future performances, he could not resist an invitation from us - can you imagine that!? He loves our vision and the energy of our dancefloor, and he feels blessed to be given a green card to unleash upon the ZNA sacred ground the crazy masterpieces he shaped and designed since he started to produce music back in 1996.

Parasense initially consisted of 2 fellow brothers that shared the same passion, sadly Zolod, one of these unparalleled Russians geniuses, is no longer among us in our physical realm; nonetheless, Alex has been able to keep up with the legacy they both crafted back in the days with an outstanding passion. Not only is he preserving with honor all their musical background, he also took their signature vision by his own means and mastery to a wider audience - always keeping high-end quality at the same time that he messes with our minds, heart and sanity.

It's more than mandatory for ZNA Gathering to pay our tribute to one of the best and most brilliant psychedelic music our scene ever experienced, considered by many the perfect fit for the most intense hours of the night, when the dancefloor craves for gripping psychedelic roller-coaster rides.

Well, in the next edition you can expect an intense ride into Alex's deepest psychedelic dreams - which also means there will certainly be moments of true paranoic sensations.

Matsuri Records_UK

PRANA (Full Band show)

Tsuyoshi Suzuki, Nick Taylor and Andy Guthrie accepted our aspiring wish, and it's with a proud heart that we succeeded in joining these three deck wizards on the same stage for the 2nd time ever in the history of this project.
Our dancefloor will surely be ignited by the experience and legacy these artists co-created when they shared the same city back in the 90's. We all remember these trance heads that were thought to be quite ambitious producers with way too complex music, which gave them an underrated recognition, and consequentially made them not experience their best as they certainly could.

However, one thing that psychedelic trance evolution showed us is that Prana were nothing more than a project ahead of their time, a trio of musical geniuses that chose to explore the psychedelic trance without limitations and formulas. Their musical approach, instead of many others back then, offered new dimensions and top quality to the growing trance scene. They had the vision to go further, even when most didn't see it that way.

With all the musical projects that we have been exposed over the years, the ones that come as a breakthrough are the ones that relate to us, that mean something to us, whether if it's of our taste or not. And this dream team's musical legacy is one of those cases that will surely leave a strong impression in all of us.
So prepare yourselves for this special appearance and don't be mistaken... this is going to be a genuine goa psy trance hymn without precedents. A moment that will be engraved on our souls for the years to come...

Spirit Zone Records_AU


An artist well-known for his eccentric vision and life style. He never stopped producing and performing worldwide since he started making us dance in the end of the 80´s and nowadays he his still performing worldwide in the biggest stages spreading his vision of psychedelic trance.
Olli Wisdom has been shaping our scene since the first steps of our culture, bringing much more to our psychedelic trance movement than music, like the cloth trend he created and that still is to this days a synonym of the colorful psychedelic life style.
His legendary performances are still engraved in our hearts, and those of us that were lucky enough to live one of the epic performances he used to unleash decades ago on the dancefloor, can say with certainty that they have gone through some of the most intense psychedelic experiences to date. After DJing for so many years, Olli started to focus exclusively on his own music production, being nowadays one of the artists with the biggest repertoire under his belt.

But that's not all - the really exciting part is that he has promised to design his
Space Tribe set exclusively for the Zambu dancefloor, a temporal-musical journey through his Goa Psychedelic Trance gems. Music that still resonates inside our minds and hearts, and that still has the power to take us back to those golden dancefloor moments. We strive to revive those beautiful faraway feelings we all love so much - but it's your unconditional energy and support that make this kind of reality possible.

Liquid Audio Sounds_NL


Jeroen Van Garling, known in the scene as the musical producer behind Synchro Three-State Logic or Z To A, was finally spotted by our psychedelic all-seeing-eye, and for our huge surprise accepted our invitation to bring back to life his signature vision and excellent mastery at our next ZNA celebration.

Jeroen is one of those great artists whose priorities and choices opened a different path in his life, taking him away from our beloved scene.
Even though we feel his absence was a significant loss to the evolution of our music, we know that the trance flame still burns strong inside his heart - and him accepting our invitation is proof of that! We could not be more excited, and proud, to provide this rare experience, especially knowing that his music and performance will be highly appreciated by all our most dedicated supporters.

Join us at ZNA's next edition in this ride through the memory lane, a one-of-a-kind music legacy that will make us fly between deep minimal psychedelic soundscapes and the funky breakbeat Goa Trance side of Synchro's golden days.

Flying Rhino Rec_UK


The almighty James Monro together with his mate Matt Evans are the masterminds behind Technossomy, and as some of you probably remember, their performance on ZNA Gathering 2015 was one of the highlights of that edition.
The Technossomy project started back in 1992, under the great Flying Rhino record label. Their music was always characterized for being unique and mind-blowing, providing since its conception some of the most memorable moments in our psy-dancing experiences. Since we experienced their live performance, back in the days, at a party in Cascais we immediately become their number one fans.
And even though their lives took different directions they still strive to celebrate their mutual past and all their musical legacy exclusively at our biannual Retro Futuristic Celebration.
For us it is such a pleasure and a huge honor to hear and experience these guys' psychedelic visions that it was only natural to have them again with us in 2021, in what is expected to be the year of cultural renaissance following the 2020 artistic hiatus. These two psychedelic veterans are promised to unleash an exclusive performance that will be engraved - once again - on our ZNA chronicles.
Remembering all the Zambu family celebrating together is, for both us and the artists, a truly special moment that we deeply cherish; and knowing it will happen in our magical sacred land once again is a win-win combination that we are certain will fill our hearts for the years to come.
Psy-Harmonics Records_FI


A name that is a synonym of "trance-made-in-Finland", aka Soumisound.

Since the mid 90's that Texas Faggott have been pushing the boundaries of crazy psychedelia with a an amazing demented sense of humor. Their music can be best described as an apogee of layers, melodies and base variations.

Keep in mind that their energy is not suitable for lightweight dancefloor warriors - Texas Faggott will surely test your sanity and unleash a true explosion of colors during the darkest hours of the night, like many are not used to. At first you will be engulfed by a sea of unorthodox stimulus, but if you allow yourself to go deeper down the rabbit hole you will be able to feel how hilarious, twisted and profound their music really is.

Their performances are quite rare nowadays, but impossible is nothing at our Retro-Futuristic celebrations; so, on our next edition, we are promised to have a suomi ride down the memory lane of their "Psy-Harmonics early Exogenic years" - which means, in other words, that reality has we know it is going to get deeply distorted.

Will you dare? We most certainly will.

Transient Records_FR

UX vs Slide

A performance that combines the best music produced by UX and Slide.

Our good friend and retro-futuristic supporter Kris Kylven aka UX / Syb Unity Nettwerk / Element Over Nature (to name a few) got the rights from Pete Martin aka Slide (or UX co-founder) to design this unique and amazing act - as Kylven was involved back in the days in many of Slide's tracks, although uncredited -, which will be exclusively presented at ZNA Gathering's next edition.

This means you can expect a deep journey through the vast musical catalogue of UX and Slide! But there's more - since we were forced to postpone our gathering to next year, we now have a slight chance of Kylven bringing some company onto our retro-futuristic stage... by none other than Pete himself.

This will most certainly be a heavy massive psychedelic transition from the darker hours to the enlightenment of the sunrise! Music suitable to re-awake our ZNA, don't you think?

Tunnel Records_DE


An act that has been shaping the psytrance scene since the beginning of the 90's. An act that does not need any introduction, and that is dearly loved by most of the psyheads around the world.

With an outstanding 3 decades of history, Marcus and Jan are an absolute favorite everytime we search for the ultimate psychedelic wave. want to be expose to the best our scene has to offer.

Even though they are most known for their industrial dirty techno psytrance approach, at the next ZNA edition they'll reveal a side of theirs that nowadays they don't usually let out, which in our opinion it's their best side.

This means that the X-Dream crew will bring us an exclusive performance designed exclusively for our late morning rituals, packed by immersive soundscapes crafted in the Tunnel Records days, filled with layers and dreamy Goa Trance melodies that will transport us back in time.

We can't wait to share this eXtra-DREAMy performance with all of you.

Psy Harmonics Records_AU


As you might have already realized we love to bring artists who have never performed at ZNA land before, but one note is essential in order to play on our sacred grounds: all artists must intone quality and authenticity built by decades of experience, that have ultimately shaped them into becoming unique creators of epic musical journeys that most of us know so well and love so much.
For one of these unique ZNA voyages we will have Steve "Aussie" Law, behind Zen Paradox musical project, as the main pilot of our mothership. Once Steve takes full control of our cockpit he will take us on a trip beyond the clouds that's promising to be a deeply melodic and dreamyone. His 90's musical legacy, crafted in a "protogoa" era when music was made without the idea of psychedelic trance we know nowadays, will take us through multiverse dimensions where techno musical formulas and psychedelic dreamy melodies are the main molecular components.
