Ultrafunkula was born out of a mutual love of dance music and the rave scene of the late 90’s. Their desire to get gigs playing other people’s parties, drove these lifelong friends to create their own events, starting with a rave in a barn!! This has eventually led to club nights at Egg & Pacha, plus the creation of the Secret Island brand.
In 2018 The Secret Island Party was established holding their first event on a private island, in the beautiful sunshine with 100 friends. This was the beach party of all beach parties!! The team then turned their hand to series of bespoke summer & NYE themed events in slightly random locations throughout their hometown of Mersea, which included a water sports venue (no jokes please), a tractor shed and a hay barn!
The common threads running through all these events is a focus on creating the same fun vibe, as much production as they could afford and banging electric dance music. This formula has always seemed to pay off, as every event so far has sold out.
Never wanting to sit back the team started scheming, the output of which was the bones of a festival idea – and so, Secret Island Festival was born.
