Could it be? After almost a year of hearing it wasn’t going to happen, is it actually going to happen? Did the bass gods really hear my prayers? Today at around 3:30 PST, the Symbiosis Events fan page surprised us all by posting the above image as their new cover photo. As you can see in the image, it is implied that there is going to be a Symbiosis Gathering this year! No other details have been released as of now, but the 19-23 on the far left side suggests a September date, as those dates happens to fall on a Thurs-Mon in that month. Hell freaking yeah.
Somewhere between watching a full solar eclipse over gorgeous Pyramid Lake, crying out of happiness seeing Rustie play for the first time on Friday night, and witnessing the universe and my sanity with it implode into ever decreasing nothingness and then tumble back into a newly formed and more beautiful reality during Tipper’s eclipse set on Sunday, I figured out that Symbiosis Gathering 2012 might have been my favorite festival ever. The lineup was top notch and unmatchable that summer and the location was nothing short of phenomenal. I didn’t attend the legendary Symbiosis in 2009, but have heard nothing but the very, very, very best about it. That being said, I’m hoping 2013 will be their best year yet and I can not wait to hear more information. We’ll try to keep you guys updated here at Afro Monk and keep your eye out for news on their website.
Love and Low Frequencies,
This morning, those following Symbiosis were given more details in the mysterious and cryptic hunt for clues about the gathering:
“The stage is set, and signed, and sealed
It’s time to forge ahead with zeal
Anticipation and excitement grow
For all the stuff you’d like to know
The time and place, or so it seems
Is the next piece of this crazy scheme
So gather round and prepare your head
Open three eyes and let your soul be fed
At this, the year of the water snake
Which is embodied by the lake
A place which you may never have heard:
The sun-drenched loch of old Woodward
The time and place you now shall learn:
A fortnight after the epic burn
The gathering begins on the fullest moon
19th of September, festivities begin at noon!
5 days of art, music, and adventure! An astounding assortment of sensory delights! Curious characters and eccentric explorers. Rare beauties and beautiful rarities. The wise, the wild, the weird, the wonderful. Dancing, swimming, and making merry together!
TICKETS GO ONSALE 14 MAY 10AM PST”
Symbiosis will be held September 19-23 at Woodward Reservoir, CA!
See all of you lovelies there!
