cluster?
Constellation?
cartload?
rumble?

How about stage names be given the same names of threatened natural jungles / forests around the world or this Country? Checked out Regen on the net and looks good if your living in Sydney. Bit far for Queenslanders . I like what your doing and it is showing to the greater community a professional and responsible approach to humans enjoying themselves in hand with caring for the environment. Encouraging active participation making the event having more purpose then just partying it up. This I imagine would attract more the type of crowd that make it a good party and festival for meeting like minded environmentally aware people.

Oh and Goa Gill is just a remarkable human being very unique. Saw a interview of him on google video. Shame about the rain and bad weather I read.

Going to try and make Earthfreq. I certainly won't be talking about any of this and if I do go. It will be with positive vibes and a open mind, keeping any opinions to myself. So thanks to everyone here for the advice.


Earthfreq will be the goods. Paul Abad has a great reputation and the people i was camped with are trying to get us all to come, he described it to me as "one of the most friendliest parties around" - as long as it doesnt rain, you should really like it :)

Its not that you should keep your opinions to yourself, its more that with a little bit more understanding, some of your gripes would of been taken care of. there was so many things that went wrong, and in hindsight its so easy to pick these out - at the time, with the stress of a festival crashing around you, the knowledge that if you call it off the people who have invested alot in getting there will be pissed off, if you dont call it off it wont be how you advertised it and people will be pissed off - making the right call can be really hard... then throw in a natural disaster, whining hippies and police + local council giving you shit - well, imagine dealing with that!! a little bit of understanding can go a long way when you air your gripes, and you're more likely to get an answer. i suppose that goes for both of us too ;)

Yes, many, 6 to be exact. Yo if you don't mind i'll take this as a promo drop..

REGROWTH FESTIVAL '08

REGEN will once again bring you a massive display of the freshest live Psytrance, progressive and electronica with an amazing 17 live acts and 17 DJs who'lll showcase local, interstate and international artists.

Live:
Error Corrective Wild Things Records (UK)

Error Corrective, Nick Howdle-Smith and Dan Warburton have been writing together for many years now and have formed an awesome balance of styles giving them their unique and distinct sound. They are now well established as one of the most popular acts on the U.K trance scene.
Their style - fat, underground, powerfully electronic, psychedelic dance music with awesome tight basses and programming attention that has steadily evolved throughout their years of experience within music production.
Error Corrective has the ability to manipulate many different aspects of trance and this will help to bring their music to a greater audience of listeners who will be thrown into a frenzied state of rhythmical absorption, squelchyness and groove!

Mr Peculiar Sonic Dragon (Melb)

Dustin Saalfield , aka Mr Peculiar. Based in Melbourne, Australia, Dustin has been creating electronic music for over 15 years, playing live and travelling all over Australia, New Zealand, Japan and Europe, and releasing tracks on a multitude of compilations. From as early as 1989 Dustin had been involved in various projects, producing hip hop, drum and bass and chilled out breakbeat music, before evolving into psychedelic trance. His first release as Mr Peculiar came in early 2001, on the Koyote Records compilation "Elephantitis". His debut album "Elements" was released by Tribeadelic in 2002, Since then he has had tracks featured on compilations from Spirit Zone, Tribeadelic, Beats and Pieces, Spectral, Procyon, Fragile Planet, Sphere, Oxygen, Green Ant Mindfunk and will also be featuring a track on the new T.I.P records compilation. Also, in collaboration with the Melbourne-based computer animation wizard "The Shapeshifter" he created a fully syncronised DVD entitled "Syncrosect", welding music and animation seamlessly together. Last year his 3rd album "Mind-dala" received rave reveiws and he followed up the release with tours of Australia Japan and Europe and is now writing a new album to be released at the end of this year. More recently he has combined forces with "Auricle" aka Minja Thomas In a new project entitled "Hyperception" and they are also currently writing an album and performing worldwide.

hehe. The amount of physical objects that 'Dorman has happened to' over the many years I have known him is quite mind boggling. I'd love to see them all compiled into one towering splintered pile for novelty appreciation.

WTF is a dorman?

As for the whining going on and attempts at consoling, jeez, life is like a box of chocolates, you know?

But probably less chocolaty. And not in a box or something you can buy from the store. And life won't melt, but it does have an expiry date, you just can't see it so well. So Life probably isn't so much like a box of chocolates. But anyway, You just be grateful when things go well, break things and say fuck alot when they don't, hope for what you think is good and pray the bad won't be too bad and get on with enjoying every day of your life :)

"kids shouldnt be allowed at doofs"

maybe this is a great thread waiting to happen...


had a really good laugh at this one......

Im putting it down to one of those dumb comments that slips out before thinking.


my 2 year old daughter has already been to a fair few doofs including solar sonics / newey crew parties / wierd remote bush parties etc & no matter how hard I think I cant come up with a reason why she should be banned.

We keep her away from the worst of the trashbags / deviants / drug zombies etc & protect her ears & steer her towards the vibrant , interesting , good natured freaks & friends .


the main negative is parties where there isnt a large enough area to camp away from the sound systems .

Obviously some people out there might think kids at doofs is a bad idea.

We take our daughter almost everywhere we go .

Maybe if more children went to more parties (& party organisers catered even in some small way for them & their parents ) then the crowd numbers would beef up a little considering so many of us are breeding up tribes now after years of dancing in the bush through the 90's & early 2000's.

Peats ridge festival & a few others are a great example of this.

anyway , hope everyone eventually recovers from their Freakreation Experiences. Sounds like it could have been much, much worse.

yikes

Thats right, i forgot about that comment in this thread. Actually i meant to make a comment regarding myself but then forgot, even forgot which forum i saw it on.

Every kid there i saw was having a great time. All the parents looked pretty sorted too which was very rad indeed. *very cute child pointing* "MUD!"

Maybe people feel uncomfortable with their newfound reality being shattered by the sight of a cute child wanting to run and jump in the mud. Maybe.

..did anyone else see the cubby built of leaves twigs and mud on the eastern hill? I rekn those boys had a memorable weekend.
