Eclipse Festival 2008

Eclipse 2008 was a tremendous success! The Tech Safari crew exhibited an unparallelled level of organization with the “solar edition” of Canada’s most well-established psytrance festival. This year the event returned to the Bonnet Rouge, a gorgeous campsite on the shore of the river Gatineau in the Outaouais region of Quebec. Musical highlights included Simon Posford’s performances as Shpongle and Hallucinogen, Vibrasphere, D-Nox on Sunday afternoon, Ekoplex on Friday night, Tapwatr, DJ Seb, Rikam vs Yann on Monday morning, Pheek, DJ Solar, the “furious percussion duo” of Blandilo, and the Indian dub fusion of The Dreamtree Project. As in previous years, the sound system was world-class: extremely powerful yet crystal clear. Altogether it was an excellent festival experience.

    Next Year marks the 40th anniversary of Woodstock, which, if this festival is held round about the same time means there’s a high probability of me getting to it, and to visit the Woodstock Museum. There’s a few faces still around who are meeting up for the first time since that infamous and very wet August weekend. It’d be great if some came along and got into the current Psychedelic Scene. I still love it and the older Psychedelic things. I’n my humble view the different eras go together.

    Just had a thought…… It’s my eldest daughter’s 40th next year too, on August 15th. No coincidence over the date.
    I helped deliver her at…… No prizes for guessing. This would make a brilliant place to have her 40th Birthday Party.
    These photos are wonderful.
