North American Festival Guide: 2009 Edition

Recommended Posts

Greetings travellers,


Every year I gather together dates, links, and locations of the various psytrance (or psytrance-related) festivals taking place in North America. This year I'm starting early, largely because of the noticeable increase in spring festivals this year. A good sign, isn't it? Anyhow, if you're seeking a quick and dirty rundown of what your options are this festival season, look no further:



I will be keeping this post updated all summer long. If you have any tips to pass on (or wish to correct any mistakes that may arise) please feel free to use the contact form on my site to reach me directly.

Eclipse and Entheos get my seal of approval... and I've heard a lot of good things about Gaian Mind (well, aside from the whole stomach flu thing last year--whoops).


Orb, not so much. In fact, be sure to read up on it if you're thinking of going. Seems to be one of those cases where the line-up persuades but the organizers fail to follow through on most other matters that are important to the festival experience...

Haven't seen anything yet... keep me updated if you find anything.

Actually, somebody sent me this today, let me know if you recognize any of the acts or labels or if they're all local:
