This is amazing! I'm South African and it's now 'Trance season'. Every weekend for the next three months there is a psytrance party or two! South African artists are actually world-class in the psytrance genre.
Have a look at the following links...
EarthDance is the only trance party I've attended, when I was on holiday in South Africa. It is an event in September that has 'Earth Hour' at exactly the same time at many locations across the world. I have been looking for similar parties in the UK but haven't found many examples until now. Have you heard about Glade Festival? Are there any other psytrance parties on the mainland?
The trance parties in South Africa are usually on a beach or a mountainous or Forrest escape, far from much civilization except for small villages. Drugs are massive there and everyone openly takes them. Police only nail those that enter with drugs or leave tripping still so you have nothing to worry about on location besides overdose. Many of the festivals there have grown massive, eg. Earthdance had around 7000 people there this year and 3 outdoor arenas, one of them being an 'electro' tent with all other electronic music other than psytrance.
It was great, because the first night I was simply drunk and had a great (although shorter) night at the electro tent, jamming to dubstep, etc. The following night I tried MDMA for the first time and didn't want anything other than psytrance! And I've never like psytrance sober or drunk before that! But now I'm hooked and reminisce with psytrance on my ipod regularly.
I've now written quite an essay... sorry about that. I got carried away in my excitement.
Just want to know what the psytrance following is like in the UK. And where the parties are at? And whether you think I could ever in a million years start a psytrance/dubstep/non-commercial electronic music night at Durham university. Which at the moment is dominated by cheesey music (which I like now and then, but there has got to be limits!)
P.S. Visit Cape Town, I can't recommend it enough!
Also, I'm **** scared of doing md in the UK. Is it freely available? What would they do if they found you with a 120mg cap on your person? Or if they tested you after having taken 4 of them?
