Hmmmm.
Just curious as to why this party seems to be selling its self as a sydney earthdance party. Will there be a prayer for peace??? What charity/s are the profits going towards??? Partys in the bush are one of the things I live for, but what is the intent and motivation behind this????

Just curious is all.

Sydney Earthdance 2009 Press Release:

A lot of people have been asking about Earthdance Sydney 2009. For those of you who don’t yet know, the Sydney Earthdance Music Festival for peace is taking a break this year. Last year’s Earthdance suffered significant financial losses due to authorities shutting down Prince Alfred Park three hours early owing to capacity and crowd safety issues. Because of the financial burden incurred we have taken some time off but are already focusing our attention on Earthdance 2010, which we hope will return to the Earthdance roots and recapture the spirit that gives the event such a unique place in the community.

Earthdance has always been a music festival for peace and we feel the message may have been undermined in recent times, so we would like people to offer suggestions for Earthdance 2010. Should we continue in the city or opt for a bush camping experience? Should the event be ticketed or free? Stay up to date through the new Earthdance social networking website at the same url; http://www.earthdance.org.au, and interact through the forum section as we build towards next year.

We encourage you to carry on the Earthdance spirit this year and celebrate in your own way (or seek other events in NSW) at 9am Sunday 27 September, when the world traditionally unites through the global languages of music, art and peace, before we all come together and share the Earthdance experience again in 2010.

*If you have been a volunteer, artist, or crew member at Earthdance Sydney in the past please contact your nearest Earthdance representative regarding the staff campout.

It's funny, and must be a first to be charging staff, volunters, DJs, artists etc $50 to play at the event, but not allowing general public to turn up....
