Project

Inspiration

*Circus Maximus (from Latin "largest circus")

- an ancient Roman stadium and mass entertainment venue in Rome for ludi (public games). Ludi were sponsored by leading Romans or the Roman state for the benefit of the Roman people (populus Romanus). It ranged from one-day to spectacular multi-venue celebrations held over several days.

In addition to basic biological needs, man has developed "higher" needs, including expression, art, and entertainment. It has become an inalienable part of us as a species. Today’s festivals are the forerunners of the aforementioned historical events, and as such are an ideal platform on which new types of entertainment and art could be developed. In the new entertainment revolution, it is the community that should shape the content according to itself and its needs, and manage it freely.

CHANGING THE GAME

Continuing to our story, now is the right time to change the way we choose and shape the fun. We want to transform the festival industry in a way that people become an integral part of that story. The first step on this path is the way the community procures tickets for a particular event, the way they carry that experience with them forever and give it a certain value so that finally this festival becomes the property of the community that will determine its continued existence and form with a help of new technologies and crypto industry.

RULES OF THE GAME

Full-blown, fair, and global Distributed Autonomous Festival (DAF) is still just a dream. But, we have started working towards it - your keys, your tickets - tickets that YOU own. We will start phase zero with a 6-day Circus Maximus Festival held in Croatia in August, for which the community will be able to buy/transfer an NFT festival ticket. Prior to the event, you will check in with your NFT ticket to the venue - in-person at the site.

IMANBEK

Kazakh producer and remixer of house music

194938

He made us dance all of last summer with his hit remix Roses 🌹 and he’s not stopping now.

We are proud to present the first Circus Maximus headliner Imanbek - at the first ever DAO Festival edition. 🎪
Imanbek is a Kazakh producer and remixer of house music. In 2019 he became internationally known with his remix of SAINt JHN’s “Roses”. He was working as a railway worker when he heard the song on the radio. In his words - he listened to the song and heard that it could be something else. He made a remix, dramatically spiked the tempo, added a propulsive bassline and pitched the vocals up beyond recognition — then watched his version going viral after posting it to a Russian social media site. Soon it became a TikTok hit and the rest is history.
Imanbek started collecting revenue from “Roses” in late 2019, earning enough to quit his job and proclaim himself a professional musician. Fun fact - Imanbek and SAINt JHN’s have yet to meet in person!
