TEDx Talk on transformational festival culture

15 09 2011

The presenter may seem seem a tad hoaky at first, but bear with it because it turns into quite a lovely, poetic and emotional summary of the emerging, global psychedelic festival culture from Burning Man to psytrance.  Might make a nice introduction for those who may not be familiar.

Highly recommended!

“At that moment I knew, with almost unbearable conviction, that this exact moment had occurred before, that it echoed back through a thousand years of a thousand dusty stomps, and that all festivals were really just one festival, eternally recurring.

Read Tribal Revival at Reality Sandwich.
