INTERFUSE REVIEW!

INTERFUSE REVIEW!

Whats up everybody??? How has your journey been since we last met on this electronic plane of existence? Spring is finally here and we can kiss the cold snowy days good bye. This entry is going to focus on my experience at Interfuse 2014 in Southern Missouri. It is a regional burn sort of like the epic gathering “Burning Man.”

Interfuse 2014 in southern Missouri was a very unique experience to say the least. I’ve been to many festivals across the country but this was the first burn that i have had the pleasure to attend. It was held outside of Laquey, Missouri by the beautiful lakes of the ozarks. You could see earth coming back to life during this festival. Out of all the amazing experiences I encountered, watching mother nature blossom as we as humans blossomed. The trees sprouted leafs and bloomed flowers over the 3 magical days at Interfuse. Burning man was a unique experience in a sense that there was radical self expression and self reliance. For some these 2 things are a hard thing to wrap your head around. no form of currency is really allowed at this event. You don’t buy thing. You are simply expected to be bringing something to the table. Interfuse, like all other burns are a community…a family, and you can feel it.  Many times i had complete strangers come up and offer my friends and I food, water, and most of all whiskey! There were some of the most amazing people at this event and I have the pleasure of calling some of them my friends.

We ran the Iowa soundcamp, otherwise know as the Acme Camp. We are a little notorious for being loud and knowing how to party. We had djs, rappers, and producers from everywhere from Minnesota and Chicago to taxes and Kansas city play at our soundcamp. We had a Gnarly 16 ft dome that we covered in a tarp and neon colored nylon deco. We had a hazer, a couple led moving heads, a few lasers, and a huge bubble machine  inside the dome keeping the party alive. we had procetions of fractals and other psychedelic art on the outside of the dome and projected onto the trees.

Interfuse was an amazing experience that made me feel much closer to my friends and become close friends with complete strangers. Next year I’m planning on attending the burn called lakes of fire. It is held on the same location as Electric Forest so that makes me very excited!  Ill be doing a post next Wednesday on summer camp music festival in Chillocothe, Illinois. Until then enjoy life, think positive, and send out good vibes!

FESTIVAL SEASON IS UPON US!

FESTIVAL SEASON IS UPON US!

Hello fellow humans! Winter is finally over and spring is upon us. Many of you are about to have one of the most meaningful summers of your lifes. Some of us will travel the world, some of us will get married and start a family. But then there is a select few of us that crave something more..something magical. I’m talking about that festy life!!! we crave the 3 to 4 days of roughing it in the hot weather with your best friends, seeing some of the worlds best musical acts on the biggest stages ever. There is some mystical aura surrounding festivals that only we can sense. Its like a little secret place that only we understand. Its so easy to forget the outside wolrd inside festival lots. So easy to leave your troubles and worrys at home and bask in the love and happiness.

This is my first entry of the festival season and i couldn’t be more excited for what life is about to bring. Sure there will be ups and downs…but we all know that our ups outweigh our downs no questions asked. my first festival of the season is going to be Interfuse 2014. This is a regional burn for the midwest section of the united states and is held may1-4th this year. it is located in southern missouri. I have heard about how awesome this event is for almost 10 years and this is going to be my first time attending. this will be my first burn of any kind for that matter. We have an amazing group of people in our crew for this event. we are heading one of the biggest soundcamps at the burn, the ACME Camp. This years theme for the event is Cartoon Mania so i can only imagine the costumes I will see or what shananagins will ensue. I will be doing a follow up entry of how the festival went shortly after the event is over.

 

in the meantime have an great week, think and send positive thoughts, and dont worry…we will get through all this together! have a good weekend!
