Posted:Back to Armadillo Acres in east Texas for this one. Three more days out in the sticks smile Details below:



Come one, come all, come big, come small.
A call rallies forth from the east.
A harkening cry from the Kingdom of Psy
For a delightful, fanciful feast.

A feast of sound, of color, of love,
Of knights, maidens, jesters, of kings and of queens.
Come dance, trance and twirl in our courts of quartz
With fellow psychedelic, angelic figurines.

The "High Quartz" beseech thee.
How many days? Approximately three.
Miss it not, lest ye dwell in the pillory.
And why would thee abstain, have thee only half a brain?
Who could resist this regal tomfoolery?

To Armadillo Acres, the pilgrimage make,
Where crystalline energy will rain up to light the sky.
Intentions and spirits and sounds, can you hear it?
All are welcome in the Kingdom of Psy.


Your Kings and Queens of music featuring the sounds of psychedelic trance, down tempo, dubstep and world music...

The music on the main stage will be going from start to finish, so please take this into account when it comes to your camp site choice. We will also have a sanctuary space setup inside a dome. This will be a space for you to go to if you just wish to get away. There will be some chill music being played, but there arent any artists actually playing on this stage.

Wed love to see a dance floor of people dressed up and immersing themselves into the theme. Dress as Kings, Queens, and Jesters and sink your teeth into the environment. You truly do create your own reality, so make the most of the experience.

Providing deco and helping with the gathering will be Optiphonic, D-Star Designs, Atrium Obscurum, CuddleFu & friends. We encourage all to bring crystals, plants, flowers, anything special that you wish to add to the altar.

Posted:If you get the time off let me know. I'm about an hour and a half from Lake Texoma, you can stop off at my place and carpool out there, save some gas. Last time I was out there gas was like 20 - 30 cents per gallon higher frown

Posted:Here's the directions, same place Space Hippies was at. You will lose cell phone signal before you get there, so be sure you have your directions and take care of any business you need to before you get off of 49.

From Dallas, head east on I-30 to Mount Pleasant. (About 115 miles depending where you are coming from).

Exit #160 to Highway 271/highway 49 and turn right. Watch your signs through Mount Pleasant and stay on 49.

Continue on Highway 49 approximately 17 miles to Daingerfield.

Continue on Highway 49 approximately 8 miles until you are just past Hughes Springs.

There is a 4-Way stop at the intersection and it is right next to the Wildflower Inn and Cafe.

Turn right on FM 2612 Loop.

Continue about 0.5 miles.

Turn left at the "Love Chapel Cemetary" sign. (The County Roads are not marked very well if at all out there. Just watch for the Love Chapel sign, small sign on the left.)

Continue about 1 mile, road will merge with another, stay left.

Continue about another 0.5 miles. (You will go past CR 2987 on your right but not as far as the Love Chapel Church on the left.)

Gate will be on your left and not easy to see until you are right on it. There is a green "Underground Cable" box very close, also on the left, watch for it.

Posted:Not now, last minute change.
Several people aren't able to go because of work and stuff, and I'm not quite healed up enough to be passed out in the trees again laugh3

So now me and a handful of the guys who couldn't go are going to be at my place tonight. Jesse is bring out his decks so I'm sure he'll be spinning some new dub and tech house all night again.
