YogiBogeyBox brings you Cosmosis Live and Rastaliens
(Cancelled, Moved to February)
WHAT SEEMS TO BE AN EVENTFUL WEEKEND TO OUR NYC COMMUNITY, THERE IS ONE EVENT THAT REPRESENTS ALL THAT YOGIBOGEY BOX STANDS FOR AND PROMISES TO BE OUR BEST ONE YET! The absolute Genius of Cosmosis, the unforgettable tunes of Rastaliens, a Live only Chill-out area the decorations of Julien Seyer, and as always the hospitality of YBB. We sure hope you will be there to gain a smile that will last a long long time !!! And so here is the lineup: COSMOSIS LIVE (Holoponic Records, U.K)Bill Halsey, the producer behind Cosmosis and Mumbo-Jumbo, is a former professional session guitarist from London who has performed with countless bands, playing Rock, Funk, Jazz, Blues, Pop and Hip-Hip. He has toured throughout Europe, Australasia, and Asia. Bill honed his writing and recording skills while composing and recording pop tracks for over ten years before he began creating pure electronic music. Now he’s as much in demand as a composer as he is for live appearances, sharing his particular brand of tongue-in-cheek, full power Psy-Trance on dancefloors across the globe. During the past 1 2 years, Bill has played Cosmosis’ music to ecstatic crowds in such diverse locations as Japan, Taiwan, Brazil, Israel, India, Bali, Germany, Australi a, New Zealand, Colombia, United States, Egypt, Switzerland, Sweden, Hungary, Slovakia, Denmark, England, Spain, Ireland, Canada, Serbia, Scotland, Belgium, Finland, Holland, Greece, South Africa, Russia, France, Mexico and Portugal, and continues to play regularly in many of these countries. Bill divides his studio time between scoring music for animation, lazing about in a hammock with his acoustic guitar in the back garden, making full power dance music, and touring Cosmosis worldwide. web cosmosis.co.uk http://web cosmosis.co.uk/ RASTALIENS DJ SET / SOUTHWILD (Phar Psyde Records, Switzerland)We will be joined by Jay for a special NYC Rastaliens DJ set. Rastalians are Jurgen Kassel and Ralph Knobloch. For about 13 years they are DJs. After 3 years of DJ-ing, Jurgen and Ralph realised, that the records from other people were not enough for them. And look at this, for about 9 years they are producing their own psychedelic trance. Rastalians started in a small cellar with a little sound system. In the beginning, the project just used simple software-synths and a small sequencer-program. Because of their limited possibilities, it was not easy for us to produce a good quality of sound85Hard work and a lot of enthusiasm caused a booking from some friends in Switzerland. They wanted a live-act. Rastalians’ first set, which was played with some quite old synths, as like Roland 101 and Korg Trident. On a special day, Jurgen and Ralph decided to send our first songs to some different labels around the world. We packed these CDs together with all our positive vibrations and what happened: Yaniv, from Hadshot Haheiz ar released our first two songs. “FREAK BOOSTER” and “UNIDENTIFIED SPECIES” . After playing on many parties around the globe, like Portugal, Netherland Mexico, Greece, USA, UK, etc. there was time for an album which was released also on Hadshot and more should follow on Boom! Rec.(which released also the 2nd album), Digital Psionics, Ketuh, Glowing Flame, and so on85 web rastaliens web rastaliens/ FUMI (YogiBogeyBox, NY, Japan)Fumi is a Producer/DJ based in Brooklyn NY. Born in Japan in 1979, he has traveled the world extensively and lived in countries such as Japan, In dia, Singapore, Malaysia, Bahrain, and the United States today. While living in Bombay India, between 1996-1998, he was kidnapped to Goa by his high school friend for the first time not knowing what to expect. This turned out to be a life-changing expedition. After living in India as a high school student, he gradually started to get infected by Psychedelic Trance, and soon purchased his first turntables. He has since performed on the same stage with many internationally known artists such as Transdriver, Penta, Jelly Hea dz, Parus, Ajja, Onkel Donkel, Wizak Twizack, Melorix, Muktisvara, Progress Ocelot, Cosmosis, Hux Flux, Infected Mushroom, and Kiriyama to name few. The style of music he plays is mostly night time psychedelic trance music, although wide range, not just dark or full-on, but pure psychedelic with powerful, pounding, pumping, mind-twisting trippy stories with craze, psyche, fun, and bit of punk and humor. LUIS CAMPOS (Dreamcatcher, NY, Brazil)DJ Lui s Campos, producer, and long-time trance DJ, born and raised in the city of Sao Paulo, Brazil where he started his professional career as a DJ at the very early age of 13. Throughout the years, Luis experimented with many different styles of music and developed his identity along the road. DJ Luis was part of the band Influx since its foundation in 1996, in which he collaborated until 1999 when he decided to come to New York. In 2000, DJ Luis and collaborators founded the Dreamcatcher studios and Psycheground weekly trance party which still happens and is already established as being one of the top party organizations in America. Currently, Luis and His old-time friend and partner Matyas Kelemen are working on the Reality Engine project which combines music and video creating a completely new dancefloor experience. AMOS RASTA (Red Eye Familia, Israel)Amos Greilsammer, 23, was born in Jerusalem, Israel. Playing drums and other instruments in his childhood, Amos always had the music full-filling his life. He’s been traveling and attending Psy -Trance parties and festivals over the world for the last 6 years, exploring electronic sounds and the Psy-Trance movement. After spending one year in Australia in 2006, Amos came back to Israel inspired by the Australian psytrance scene and started mixing electronic music and producing underground parties and music festivals in Israel. Amos will bring us fresh unique sounds from the Israeli desert, the Australian bush, and Goa beaches, to bring us high for a magical night. DJ RHEEDOO (Omnitribe, NY, Ukraine )Gosha, who was born in Kiev, Ukraine (Soviet Union at that time) became part of the NYC scene shortly after his arrival in 1998 as he got involved in UnderTheBridge afterparties and other Alphatrance events as a promoter/producer. He also began to DJ under the alias DJ Indra. Then was Omnitribe, Gaian Mind summer festivals, and many other parties and events. Groovy-morning-progressive became Gosha’s favorite type of vibration. Deep chillout and ambient sets were also his specialties. In the past couple of years Gosha began re(dis)covering connections to his ethnic identity, and as result became very much influenced by world and ethnic music from Eastern Europe. He found that traditionally people from Balkans to Carpathian Mountains area are very musically gifted and their folk tunes are rather groovy and quite danceable. To signify this new passion for ethnic-based music Gosha assumed a new name – DJ Rheedoo. He played his first set under this new identity at the closing of Desiderata festival past August – and the response was overwhelming! Gosha has the recording available for listening and downloading here: soundcloud/ soundcloud/barmaglot/sets INCR EDIBLE CHILL LOUNGE LINEUP featuring: PRIMORDIAL OOZE – LIVE (Sentimony/Pure Perception – Chicago)(YES, our friends from Chicago will join us for a live set) PROGRESS – LIVE CHILL SET (AntiShanti Records, USA) And a SPECIAL SURPRISE ACT Location: Hello BK formerly The Hook18 Commerce streetBrooklyn, NYweb thehookmusic/ web thehookmusic/ With a fantastic vibe, this amazing venue with YUMMMY sound will provide us with two floors of music as well as an outdoor patio to take a breather.

Dear friends! We regretfully announce that Billy (Cosmosis) has not recovered from a virus he has picked up while at Universo Parallelo and will not be able to join us this weekend. We will surely have him join us at a near date. As for the time being, we have to make aDJustments to give you the best experience for this weekend. To compensate, we will have our friends Primordial Ooze (Chicago) play a special set. And so the lineup will be the following: -> DJ Rheedoo (Ukraine) -> Amos Rasta (Israel) -> Luis Campos (Brazil) -> Rastaliens DJ set (Switzerland) -> Primordial Ooze Live (Chicago) -> Fumi (Japan) Dear trance lovers, YBB supporters and those who simply wanted to dance tomorrow. We are regretfully announcing that the event we were all so excited for tomorrow will be postponed until February. This is due to last-minute issues with the venue that has once again taken advantage of its patrons by waiting until the last minute to inform us of a lost license (This is one of many times he has taken advantage of our production and we have jumped out of our skins every time to take care of the quality sound and good treatment of the crowd by the security). We sincerely apologize to anyone who has made plans to come out to and party tomorrow night and we will work extra hard on the February event which will feature a similar lineup with the same headliners (with much hope on the health of Billy improving) and perhaps even more surprises to whet your appetite. As for this weekend, we do have the wonderful guys from Chicago in town and we have made an arrangement for them and for Luis Campos to join the other event happening this weekend. So for anyone who craves a good set or two this weekend, check out the following event, which will now feature Primordial Ooze

Loud Monitors – Land of dreams at Aji Bar Brooklyn
Once again, no comment thread for this?? Had a nice time at this event, thanks to everyone who helped, everyone who danced, and to Cris for putting it together. And the staff at Aji is really awesome. Special thanks to all who helped load/unload my truck.. a new world record in truck unloading.. done in around 2 minutes! Nice sets from all the DJs. I expected nothing less from this lineup. A happy surprise coming from Kno-b with a little darker style than I have come to expect from him, but with the same great skill as usual Deco was fantastic. The only downside to this party was that it was -too- successful, too many people in the earlier part of the evening.. made it unpleasantly crowded.. then the police arrived and we had to turn the sound way down for a little while. But it all worked out in the end.. some people left.. and most of the cool people stayed, most of the really obnoxious ones left.. sound was turned back up. A nice vibe developed. A far better outcome than if it had gone the other way moof! -Ben aka Hypnotoad (light-o-matic / PSI)

Anyone know the track that Kno-b played with the Yes cover of Owner of a Lonely Heart? And yes all you trancers who had no clue what this was when I started singing it before it broke in should be ashamed for not knowing this. hey guys it was you who made it happen !! thank you very very much. Sound system, deco, DJs, venue, vibe, wow it was just amazing! BEN, SUE, KNOB, BRANDON, LUIS, and of course the NY trance familia thank you very very much .. LOUD MONITORS will be back in March stay tuned ..

Our NYE Extravaganza was an unforgettable night filled with excitement, exhilaration, and collective energy! Alladin Group wishes to express our deep appreciation for the solidarity of the psy community; New Year’s Eve was an inspiring show of love for all the amazing performers who dazzled us with intoxicating beats and mystical visions. Together we created a beautiful place in space and time where harmony lives. Our outlook is bright entering 2010, and we at Alladin Group are more committed than ever to bringing only the best in trance music and decoration to New York.

We return to Hello BK for anot her high energy gathering on Saturday, February 13th ! LINEUP: LOGIC BOMB (TIP Records, Sweden) web myspace/logixbomb Sweden’s Johan Krafft and Jonas Pettersson are Logic Bomb, a dynamic psychedelic full-on Scandinavian trance duo creating music together since 1998. Logic Bomb’s tracks make appearances on top-notch compilations from famous trance labels such as TIP Records, Spirit Zone, and Transient, and released their own debut album, “Headware”, on Spiral Trax, Sweden’s leading trance label. With many years of experience in the electronic music arena, including collaboration with Dennis Tapper as Hux Flux, this highly skilled tech-savvy team makes no compromises on production quality, resulting in some of the crispiest so unds the trance scene has to offer. TRANAN (Solstice Music, Sweden) web myspace/trananmusic Jonas Pettersson, aka Tranan, has been passionate about music since the piano playing days of his youth. He discovered the psy-trance scene in 1993 with friend Dennis Tapper, who later became his partner in the Hux Flux project. Jonas was motivated by the desire to create music exactly as he wanted to hear it, music that did not yet exist. Hux Flux gigs took him around the world, until he began Logic Bomb in 1998 with Johan Krafft, and later Jonaz Bergvall. 1999 witnessed his first solo release on Flow Records, and the following year the success of his many projects allowed him to quit his day job, giving complete focus to music ventures. To date, he has toured every continent aside from Antarctica, including highlights like Solstice Music Festival in Japan 2002, Boom Festival 2000 and Samothraki 2002 and 2003. SKOOCHA (Parabola Records, France) http://web myspace/skoocha Skoocha is one of the many aliases of French/Spanish Musician & Producer Benoit Munoz. Inspired by the trance sounds of the first Dragonfly compilation, which he encountered in Amsterdam back in 19 95, Skoocha has devoted himself to a life of sonic creativity. He has worked on track releases with a variety of top names including Manmademan (UKSL (MindControl). Now we are delighted to be Skoocha’s host as he celebrates his much-anticipated debut album, just released on Parabola Music (Germany)! Containing both unreleased tracks and new remixes of old favorites, “The Infinite Monkey Theorem” blends the emotions of old school Goa trance with the power of polished production and the funk of NYC. ORBIT (Orb Records, Alladin Group, NYC) web alladinproject.net Hailing from Japan and Israel, the pair has been energizing crowds in the New York scene since 2004. Both with years of experience as DJs in their own right, this electric team has everything it takes to impress. Orbit’s full-on sets activate the dance floor to the max, generating an unstoppable vibe that is nothing less than contagious. Orbit’s sonic sorcery induces the imagination with wonder, magic, and mystery, evoking a collective journey on waves of vibration. Trancers are guaranteed a potent and stimulating concoction, skillfully mixed by these master crowd pleasers. Orbit’s reputation in NYC precedes them, the buzz of anticipation creating excitement before they even take the stage. ww w.myspace/earwormfrequencies KIFE (Omnitribe, NYC) web myspace/DJkife Minimal & Progressive Room Lineup TBA DECO: OCULAR DELIGHT (Alladin Group, NYC) web dividemysky/oculardelight/events.p hp ALLADIN DECO TEAM (Alladin Group, NYC) LIGHTING & SOUND: AUDIOLUST (NY C) ADMISSION: $20 Advance Tickets On Sale at web alladinproject.net $30 at Door 18 to enter, 21 to drink MUST HAVE VALID PHOTO ID LOCATION: Hello BK (formerly The Hook) 18 Commerce Street Brooklyn, NY 11231 web thehookmusic/ Doors open 10pm This amazing venue, with TOP NOTCH sound and an amazing vibe, will provide us with two floors of music as well as an outdoor patio. ** COMING SOON: Stay tuned for information concerning ORB Festival our fourth annual outdoor gathering! Happy Valentine’s Day! Alladin Project Team had a lot of fun. I’m sure there will be complaints about security tho. Thanks, Tranan! for playing what I asked for. And it was the first track. That was so awesome to re-live an experience like that. Just wondering what happened to Logic Bomb’s set? Tranan played an hour set from 3-4 (though he did play some logic bomb tracks) followed by orbit from 4 till closing but the logic bomb live set was mysteriously missing… I thought the same thing…he told me he played both projects in the same set…. yea he did. You guys didn’t notice the classic Logic Bomb trax he was playing?? He played that track Fluxor always plays. SICK!!!!!! Shame to hear this when two separate sets were clearly advertised by the promoter. If Logic Bomb and Tranan are advertised as headlining acts at a party that is promoted and sold on this basis then surely as a paying customer you have the right to expect what was promised? Ugh! Here we go. Obviously, you don’t know your tracks. You should be happy you even got to see one of them. Don’t make negative comments towards promoters because you don’t know what you’re talking about. He was playing some of Logic Bomb’s most famous tracks. If you couldn’t tell then that’s your fault. It was the same thing on New Years’ eve in 2006. Look at the top of the thread. Two sets are clearly advertised. If you refer to my previous comment I did say I noticed him mixing in logic bomb tracks. As the party was advertised, however, I would have expected separate sets from both Logic bomb and Tranan. Considering it also cost $30 to get in I think this is a legitimate complaint. I’m not slating the entire organization – just saying that if promoters state things as they are more likely to gain the trust/respect of their crowd. If they had advertised one member of Logic Bomb (Tranan) playing an hour set of his own tunes mixed with logic’s tunes then I would have known what to expect. Call me a pedant but as a fan of logic who went specifically to see them, I was a bit let down. On a positive note, however, I was not disappointed by Tranan’s set

Piney POWER! Philadelphia

Hey guys, dants party is back with a 100% trance lineup! Enertopia (Warp Brain, pine barrens) Emiliano Solazzi Griminger (Moti Griminger) was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and lived in Beer Sheva, Israel, most of his life. At the age of 18, he was already leading a very successful Israeli death metal band called CEREBRAL COMA, where he played guitar and vocals, which had major success in the international and national underground scene. In 1992, Emiliano hooked up with Ziv Matushka, another pioneer in the Israeli electronic music scene, and, together, they started to experiment with more Industrial music and eventually wrote Goa and Psytrance. Ziv joined P.Cok, and Emiliano continued his project as ENERTOPIA. The first single by Enertopia was released in 1996 by B.N.E Israel in a compilation called DESTINATION ISRAEL, and after a few months, he was signed by KREMBO Records (Israel). The first full-length album was called MAGIC FOR ETERNITY, released in 1997, followed by FACE ADAPTOR, co-written with Yuli Fershtat AKA B.L.T, Perfect Stranger. In between 1996 and 1998 Enertopia released two full albums and numerous singles.

Nowadays, based in USA, Emiliano has founded “Warp Brain Records”, the first east-coast label of PsyTrance and Progressive trance. EgBot & Lauryn (Peak Recs, Philadelphia) avid McGee (aka Eg~Bot) and Lauryn are currently based in Philadelphia, PA where they help throw monthly psytrance parties and DJ for the Swiss label Peak Records. Both finding their musical roots early in life, they have been DJing Goa/psychedelic trance for longer than they can remember, and more recently have begun brewing their own spumescent concoction of psychedelic trance music. Individually they have played across the US, Canada, and in Europe sharing the stage with many well-known international acts. They joined forces in late 2007, and have been DJing collaboratively ever since. Prepare for a twisting journey through psychedelia past present and future… billy boogie (dants , pine barrens) Djing for over a decade now, boogie has changed styles a few times as his music tastes were altered. Starting out way back DJing techno on vinyl, he’s made his way through “hard trance” and techy house to finally reside with a type of driving, full-power psytrance. Producing other styles for about a decade as well under a few separate monikers , boogie has yet to unleash his own brand of psytrance on the masses. and a very special guest!!!!!!!!!!!!

pretty wicked party, thanks, guys! Wizack laid it down in fine antishanti form only wish the sound on the main floor was as crisp as it was in the back room. nonetheless, excellent turnout and warm vibes. see u next time! Nice one guys – wizack and cosmosis both delivered and the space was really nicely decorated all around. Also grateful that it stayed open till 7 as promised – public assembly is a huge improvement on the hook Only complaint would be the sound in the main room – the in-house rig really needs to be engineered for psy and Cosmosis definitely seemed to be having sound issues during his set. Looking forward to your next outing I enjoyed cosmosis Goa sounds and wizack new album is kick ass! not to complain but the sound system was fuck up somehow sometime.. at the end Vladimir fixed it putting things lower and softly but in general you guys again did it…

The party was smooth, the venue – cozy, deco – wow!, such beautiful people, such a good vibe! Music – Swedish kid was the man for me, the ending was brilliant, need to check his music! Well, being not a huge fan of high bpm music I really wasn’t suffering at this party, it’s just that towards the end it would be nice to acknowledge the arrival of the morning, light, new day – musically. Like putting Spiritual healing (the 1st trance track I’ve ever heard in my life – ahhhh, nostalgia..) – that’s one with the longest beard in a trance history, but it drives even dead bodies nuts so why keep drilling when u can make people dance and smile more? What else .. I met some good people in this party, old fellas and new friends like one of the organizers – Misha, and on this occasion, I would thank you and “the team” for throwing such a gr8 party! Much needed night of pure psychedelic tunes … wow the flow of psycedelica was just great !!!! Super impressed by what Prishvin Mess and Kabayun are producing … deep dark and very danceable trippy tunes Big Boom to TDC and looking forward to the next installment Thanks TDC for a great party. Amazing music all night, and sick deco by Julien! Can’t wait for the next one….

LOUD MONITORS presents: “FAR from EARTH” with EARTHLING

Greetings all you beautiful dancefloor inhabitants! The LOUD MONITORS crew would like to announce our next installment of party awesomeness, “FAR from EARTH”!!! Come out and celebrate Cris’s birthday and break in your moonboots to the musical artistry of EARTHLING, live! (Neurobiotic / Ibiza). We will be landing this rager at a Brooklyn spaceport on Saturday, June 5th, 2010, to gather the best local talent and party folk and then sweep all of you straight back to zero G’s. Bring your space helmets and be prepared to party. LOUD MONITORS presents: “FAR from EARTH” celebrating CRIS`s birthday !!! featuring: EARTHLING live* (Neurobiotic Records) Ibiza First NYC appearance!!!! Earthling is the solo project of Dj Celli. Celli was born on the island of Ibiza in 1977. In the early 90’s, he began going to Full Moon parties and clubs on the island, which influenced him greatly, Since the island has always had healthy music, and party scene. In 1992, he began working with an organization in Ibiza called Art Party and learned the art of party organizing. When the first Psychedelic Trance arrived on the island, Celli fell in love with the music, and he and a group of friends began organizing their own parties, specializing in Psychedelic trance. These parties were very successful and helped to kick off the psytrance scene in Ibiza, which is still very popular today. It was at one of these parties that he played his first DJ set. In the year 1998, after six years of making parties, and DJing on the island, Celli bought his first studio equipment, and began creating his own music, shortly afterward he formed his solo project… Earthling, releasing his first tracks “Just Say Yes” on T.I.P. records, “Dusty Hoffmans” on Neurobiotic records, and his debut album “Patterns” on Acidance records in 2001, which gave him global recognition, and launched his career as an international Dj and performer. Shortly afterward, with his friends Riktam and Bansi of the legendary Psytrance group GMS, he formed a new group called Soundaholix . together, they have produced dozens of hits such as Psychedelic Circus, Technofari, and The Moon, and will release their debut album “Soundaholix Anonymous” in December 2008. In 2003 He formed another group called Vatos Locos, with Trance pioneer Nick Doof, and Mexican Dj Xavier Fux. They have two albums together. Welcome 2 da Barrio, and Attack and Release. Their first album “welcome 2 da Barrio” , was released on Sony Music, Dance Division, and went on to achieve huge success all over South America, with their music videos being shown on MTV and Telehit. Celli also produces Minimal Techno under the name Monoxcide, and Chillout, under the name Earthling , with his tracks appearing on many Ibiza-based compilations over the years, and has a chillout/Dub based project with Nick Doof called 3rd Ear Audio. Earthling’s highly anticipated second album “Hypernature” will be released on Neurobiotic records in December 2008, and promises to be a contemporary definition of his sound: a unique blend of deep, psychedelic soundscapes and organic rhythms.

upstate New York See everyone there, I’m bringing my family. This group is particularly participatory art – DIY friendly. Their website has all the information you need web desideratafestival Thursday June 24th after 4pm until Sunday June 27th 6pm. Juno Reactor (DJ) // Talamasca // Perfect Stranger / / Beats Antique (DJ) // Jaia // Blockhead // Evan Bluetech // Mecca Bodega // Transdriver // Ajja // Phatmatix // Yab Yum // Eclectic mthod // Andromeda // Future Rock // Encephalopaticys // Chromosome // Wizack Twizac k // Onkle Dunkel // Rastaliens (DJ) // Jahbo // Filteria // Giuseppe // Artifakt // BLT // G.O.W. aka Grapes Of Wrath // Alex B // Papadosio // Southwild // Aerodromme / many many more Desiderata Festival is about celebrating life, about reconnecting with your fellow brothers and sisters through a rich cultural and social experience. It’s not just about music, that is but one facet of the human experience. Interacting with your fellow human beings, reigniting that spark that winter has sought to extinguish, experiencing the pure joy of being alive and being part of a gathering of like-minded evolved humans, engaging in dialogue to better understand and connect with each other – that is Desiderata. Expect new and diverse breeds of music. Meet members of the world community and participate in workshops, lectures, and political discussions. Expect the avant-garde and the abstract: indie film premieres, art installations, and multimedia performances. Experience and discover music that will help you transcend the petty day-to-day issues out in the real world. Let loose and dance to wash away the stress of life. Watch and join actors performing theater. Sit by the fire and instinctively remember a simpler time, when every person, musician or non-musician would sing, drum, play an instrument, in harmony with each other, exposing their true selves without shame to their fellow human beings. All your senses aflame, your mind stimulated, your heart pumping with the utter joy of sharing life with others… “Go placidly amid the noise and haste, …you are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars…” Max Ehrmann, “Desiderata”
We regret to inform you that Dave (Eg-bot) and I will be unable to perform at Desiderata Festival this year. This past Friday evening while at an event in Philly Dave fractured his elbow. He is currently in a lot of pain and will require surgery. As a result, we will need to cancel our appearance at the festival. Please send your healing vibes for a speedy recovery. Best wishes for a successful festival – we will be dancing with you in spirit.
What a frickin’ fantabulous weekend!!! Even with its setbacks, this year’s Desi topped last year’s. There are no words to describe the beauty of the location and dancing in those mountains, my legs could’ve used a break hiking up and down them though. I think the distance between everything was kind of far but it all seemed to work out. There was also so much going on that made my time even better, watching the game, the dance floor jam, swimming in the pond, the wedding, etc….Surprised that the size of the dance floor tho, seemed to be more people at night and even some never left their camp. I had all friendly and positive interactions with the landowners and security, the lady who owns the pond even came down and hung out with all of us and I don’t think I’d ever be able to walk past a sheriff topless, head 2 toe body paint with a beer in my hand without a problem. They even let us stay an extra night. I was pleasantly surprised with the daily cleaning of the porta-potties, I’ve never been so happy to use one before. My biggest gripe which lied with attendees is the way the main camping was TRASHED after everyone left. There were some people generally trying to clean up while others just left practically everything behind (food, trash, grills, clothes, coolers, tikis, tents!) Hopefully, they will have us back next year. Big thanks to the Orgz, sound people, artists, vendors, and all the festival elves (volunteers) who busted ass to make this happen. Had lots of fun at this festival A quick summary of my viewpoints: Pros: Beautiful location, lots of very friendly and up for it people, lots of good sets, world cup viewing area. Cons: Very expensive for production levels, no tap water (never had this situation before at a festival), no ‘shuttle buses’ at local bus station as promised on website leaving travelers stranded (woman at a local liquor store told me one girl had waited six hours in vain), disorganized lineup time slots on the mainstage during the day leading to a lack of flow (prog to full-on to darker sounds with no transitioning), lack of people on the dance floor in the daytime, Talamasca (truly painful for the ears). People still recovering? Thanks to the organizers for a great event! Mindblowing location for the main stage with the moon setting over the mountains amidst Parvati sounds melting the dance floor. Lost a few pounds hiking up and down the hills, but big ups to the orgs for pulling this off. There was a police SUV parked next to the main stage but music was blasting and people were flying Tasty pirogis, super tasty fruit bread. The visuals on the main were very well conceptualized – The 2 eyeballs used for visuals was a great idea. I’m surprised no one has reviewed this yet, 1500+ people easily attended. Just goes to show how online portrayal of the scene is misleading (so much hype and banter for a 400+ gathering on the west coast ) I think most of the handful posting here didn’t make there, hence the lack of online buzz ! Big ups to yogibogeybox and everyone involved. I had a great time. I was actually camped way up the slope in the main camping area. Some security guys were camped next to us and they were really cool. So not sure why everybody is dissing the security guys (on facebook at least). The location was stunning. Very hard to find such an amazing venue. The local sheriff seemed to enjoy walking around. I was cool with that as he did not really interfere. Sanitation was horrendous. How can you have < 20 porta potties for 1500 people? And they were cleaned only once a day. Astonishing that the organizers let that happen after charging $170 / ticket. I would rather have fewer namesake international acts (like Juno Reactor) and more portapotties. What I do not understand is why Stage 1 was empty (20 ppl) on Saturday morning? Where were the people? I felt a serious lack of energy on the dance floor. Some shade would have been nice, but I have danced in parties across the world, shade or no shade, in 100 degrees heat, the morning is when the party is revitalized and beautiful. Jaia’s set was just AMAZING – but there was nobody there to hear it! This is not the first time I have seen this happen in festivals in the US. It is strange because people here give off such great vibes, but do they just lack the energy to dance into the morning? Is it that night music is more popular here than morning music? I don’t mean to criticize or generalize but am really just trying to understand why this happens. Overall a great experience. +ves Location location location Some great sets Very nice people World cup boathouse Cheeseburgers -ves Sanitation Loud sound systems in the camping area (even though they said this would not be allowed) Pros: Beautiful land and many positive people, some good music, friends and family good-sized dancefloors @ DESI stage on Friday and Saturday nights seemingly calm and collected cooperation from local law enforcement Cons: $170 ticket price at gate for a highly disorganized event No stage manager on DESI stage for most of the festival (consequently, messed up timeslots and music flow on occasion) in the absence of stage management, many artists had to negotiate amongst themselves to reform parts of the schedule. Artists NO-SHOWS with no announcements made (Juno Reactor, others?) Some artists played longer than they were booked for (electro house DJs?) whilst other booked artists didn’t even get to play (Mubali, others?) Rude Security (full car searches / slinging personal property around, golf cart drivers flying down the road) Few sources of shade and water (probably why the stages were deserted other than on Friday/Sat night) Confused and varying an allocation of resources (parking, food, shelter) for artists vs. staff — depends on whom was asked. ———– Advice: From the reviews I’ve read thus far (and what I heard spoken from some at the event), the mainstream (jam-band) festival scene viewed this event as a disaster, some kind of money scam and/or zombie druggie rave. I know that’s not what it was, but that was the appearance to those used to large jam events with a high level of production and organization. (typically in the same price bracket) Psytrance fans and ravers seem, of course, much more forgiving. I say throw your lot in with the psytrance scene, cut the price of the festival in half (along with the huge international lineup and token “big names”) , budget for about 500 tickets to be sold…. find what you do well, and do just that
