Dear Doofers,

Has anybody here ever been to Canada? Is there any Psy parties going on ova there, Toronto in particular? I have a mate in Vancouver that's involved with Tribal Harmonix All I've been told is that they organize killa parties in the stix, kinda Doofs, but not strictly Psy like here, they play more of a mix btw D'n'B, Breaks, Dub, Hiphop and Goa/PsyTrance..

Me and my girl are moving to Canada for a year in Jan, any insight will be hugely appreciated.

Peace, love!

Ive been to one of said doof's in Van city back in 99. It was near a town called Squamish.

Yeah it was fairly mainstream, There were three stages: the main one played funky techno, then there was a hip-hop stage and a DnB stage. About 5000 people were there.

Ive never been to the east coast, but in BC it rains ever second day in summer and winter's fookin freezing so its pretty shit for outdoor parties..

Shambhala happens in BC.... I lived in Canada for a couple of years (in BC) and there wasn't much of a psy scene there at that point, although I was living in the mountains.

As far as I could tell, East Coast was saturated with bad house and commercial trance. Quite tragic. Hopefully, for your sake, it's different now.

I just typed Psytrance Toronto into and found these for you: ... t-361.html

Thanx for your insights..

Flash, yeah the Psy scene looks pretty dead over there, hopefully things have changed, a lot. I'm friends with a d00d called Doktor J his well informed in those Psychedelic matters, I should be taken cared off.

greetingz australienZ,


indeed there is a psy-scene developing in canada - I would say mostly in british columbia. I recently wrote an article on it for entrance magainze:

Infected mushro0m is playing here again on monday.

also keep an eye on episode 13 ( ) for the sickest of of the psY.
