Posted:.bender, yours sounds wonderful!

SAN FRANCISCO/ SANTA CRUZ

Kyrian, for sure there may be several San Francisco-area Earth Dance events. check into that San Francisco coupla major rave calendar sites, sorry, don't know them right now, a little looking, ask around in Santa Cruz from ravers.

SAN DIEGO

in San Diego, Veronica & Valerie & The Vibe Tribe are anchoring, but told me there's no plans to light up firetoys! they are on good terms with the fire marshal, and are cautious, so we can't promote it around here as any kind of definite fire party. it's in a suburban park, so very iffy. but might be a good party, haven't gone to get the dj list yet, will soon, & post for our region, but The Vibe Tribe gurls are pro party hostesses, what they get hired for, go around & dance & pump up the energy by embracin da crowd.

SoCal

around SoCal, soon's i check, sure we prolly got 3 or 4 Earthdance events different directions, & Arizona's next door in the desert is said to be the closest to a massive (in SoCal that means, properly, 5,000+ heads) they got going now.

AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND

yo in Oz & NZ too, how many come to Earthdance in each city? what do y'all expect this year?

Posted:yay, flash fire, hope Melbourne, Sydney, & all the rest of you wonderful south pacific peeps have a ripping good party, & get some good vibes in for me, too, in absentia, would you?

600+ in Sydney? a bit shameful the big close-to-LA towns here are not happening this year, but San Diego has 2 parties, and anyone coming here, i recommend Tucson, Arizona, where it could even hit near 3,000, and may be the big party of the year. we've made a major post of the SoCal offerings from San Francisco to Tucson to San Diego in our SoCal thread if ya wanna see what we got around here.

Bender, your flyer is deliciously sweet, i think my favorite of all the ones i've seen.

if i'm up to going out, as i'm recuperating from something at home right now, i'll prolly make it to the first San Diego event, where pozee said he's likely to be with the Vibe Tribe where he's crew, and Veronica rains sparks as resident Fire Goddess.

One Earth, One Dance, One Tribe.

Posted:ima glad ya stopped sniffing the kero, tjoni!
as for earthdance, it was the happiest day i've had in the city in years! textbook summerday, hippyvibes festival atmosphere in spades and all the fun you could fit in a conbi! from the packed gardens, it's clear to see that earthdance will only get bigger and bigger.

Kerazee closing ceremony with dan/pyroptix performing the most skillful enclosed twirl ever!he had about 2m wide circle clear of crowd to perform a massive repertoire!

this summer's gunna be huge-normous for fire! so many twirlers that there were several peeps doing staff, poi, devil stix, hoops, juggling clubs/balls/hoops constantly from the start! roll on summer roll on!
