Ok, so I like electronic dance music, more specifically Trance. When I started in the 1990's, the US was a bit behind in that department.
Still, with San Francisco and San Jose nearby, I've had some opportunities to see some great EDM/Trance DJs. Back in the early 2000's, they sadly played club music in the US that was nowhere close to the hits they had composed and were known for, but over the years, as Trance started becoming more popular, those DJs finally started playing their good tunes in the US too, and maybe from 2004 on, it's only been getting better.
Popsicle Halloween 2004 was really the beginning of great music parties in the San Francisco Area, and thankfully things have gotten even better since then

As a matter of fact, after another 10 years (2015 and beyond) the good news is that Trance has grown quite a following in the US, and places like the SF Bay Area, and while Trance has been declared dead a few times in the last 10 years, it's still going strong here.
Trance Family SF is definitely strong in the area, we've been getting more big trance parties every year, including many top DJs that come visit us what feels like every other week now (as of 2018-2019), and through those events, I made many friends in Trance Family SF. Thanks to you all.

Over those years, I got the chance to meet a few of my favourite DJs, including Armin more than once, and my last hobby has been to work on lights for my shirt and pants (version 3) and (version 4)

2021/11/19 Dreamstate Socal 2021: Back to Trance Heaven After 2 Years
π 2021-11-19 01:01 in Clubbing, Festivals

so glad to be back!
so glad to be back!

2020 was obviously the year from hell for lots of things, including festivals. EDC had a 2.5 year gap, and Dreamstate ended up with a 2 year gap, but despite probably losing a bunch of money during the pandemic, Insomniac did a great job putting a quality show as always, dealing with all the extra difficulties (artists cancelling due to covid, other artists unable to get visas to enter the US), and yet they went back to 4 stages instead of 3 in 2019.

Of course, many of us had fun at EDC Vegas a month ago, read more here: http://marc.merlins.org/perso/clubbing/post_2021-11-22_After-a-2_5Y-wait_-Our-next-EDC-Vegas.html , but while EDC has trance, it's not about trance, Dreamstate of course is about trance!

Unlike creamfields where some of the extra stages were honestly shit visually and audio quality-wise (and their security was dicks), insomniac made sure all stages were as good as could be, even the smallest one (void).

The lineup was solid like I said:

  • All Pictures: https://photos.app.goo.gl/J9xqDaD65USuWZV49
  • BestOf Pictures: https://photos.app.goo.gl/ddho1tk1fvacqGes9
  • The Grounds

    As always, it's not EDC Vegas level eye candy, but it's still quite good, nothing to complain about :)





    The decors were great and the VIP areas were shiny:





    If you didn't bring your own lighting, they had you covered:




    The stages were as follows:

    The dream stage was quite pretty, well done

    Of course, what makes Dreamstate and EDC magical, is not just the eye candy that Insomniac brings, but what the attendees bring too, from good vibes, costumes, and totems:

    That's not counting Afik's LED totem entourage, an ever growing list :)



    Of course, we had our local trancefamily groups:




    For the LED/tech nerd that I am, it was great to see more people with LED panels, some were able to use some of the code that I published online and make their own improvements on top:

    really cool totem with 12 RGB panels (more than me, but less resolution than me), run by an FPGA card, well done!

    And to save the best for last, after Paul Van Dyk, was Ferry Corsten's Gouryella which was truly a religious experience for many, myself included. I still remember hearing it in what turned out to be 2016 at EDC at Circuit Grounds after consulting my archives :) Thank you so much Ferry for playing this again, albeit an updated version:

    Day #2

    After just enough sleep, I had a bit of time to write some extra code for my LED outfit, including adding some DJ faces (see bottom for Craig, Liquid Soul, and Blastoyz), and an extra trancejesus has it on vynil screen (see above). I then went a bit early to check out the grounds before everything started for Day #2:

    π 2021-10-22 01:01 in Clubbing, Edc, Festivals
    Waiting a year for EDC is a long wait, but it got moved in May 2020, and moved again in October 2020, and again in May 2021, that was starting to be torture, and it finally happened on Oct 2021, not a moment too soon!

    woohoo!
    woohoo!

    so glad to be back

    The Grounds:

    Even though the event was not sold out, and used tickets were going for very low prices, insomniac did not cheapen out on the event. Plenty of DJS were not able to come due to covid travel restrictions, but the grounds were just as impressive as usual:


    On day #3, I went early (before sunset), I was able to talk myself into the big ferris wheel and got a special ride to the top when it wasn't opened yet. Got some great shots of course:






    Too bad most people missed sunset due to the opening times:

    Fireworks

    There are fireworks, and there are EDC fireworks. After EDC fireworks, it's harder to see other fireworks, for sure, especially with the drone show that was added this year:

    The People

    Festival goers in Europe probably think I'm some weirdo that came from space (especially those idiots that run creamfields and actually prevent you from getting in with anything cool, because I guess it's better to keep it boring). This is really one of the things Insomniac has done so well, fostered this culture of cool totems and costumes:

    And great to see more LED totems, even if I'm still the only wearable LED outfit:

    And yes, people waited a long time!




    And of course, the party within the party:








    But anyway, let's get on with the festival:

    Day #1

    I was lucky to have a nice view on the shuttle locations from my room, shuttle locations that Insomniac is still not giving precise GPS waypoints for, making many people walk quite a bit trying to find them:


    lots of busses waiting at mid strip to take happy ravers

    no line when I got there around 17:45, but the busses weren't going yet
    no line when I got there around 17:45, but the busses weren't going yet

    Unfortunately, despite all the busses and staff being there, the first bus didn't leave until 18:00, which was too late with traffic, so we only arrived at EDC past 19:30, and I barely got to Khromata's set around 18:45, having missed 45mn of it. I hope that insomniac fixes this for real and allows busses to leave earlier (at least 17:30) on fridays, since there is bad traffic each time.

    Happy to see Khromata, even if it was only for the last bit of her set:



    Quantum Valley looked nice, but the atom bar in the middle blocked the screen for many pictures

    This was my beef about the atom look of QV, it messed up the screen and pictures:

    Paul Oakenfold was next, he was a complete mess, totally coked up, a disaster with the microphone when his buddy didn't take said microphone to make things worse. He even totally messed up a mix, reset a track from the start and played it twice, because 0 fucks given. So sad, he's such a pioneer and truly one of my idols. This is why you shouldn't do drugs, kids, or pick them carefully :)


    so happy to be here :)

    Back for day #2, by then the friday traffic was gone, so the 18:00 shuttle got there just before 19:00, opening time from the shuttle side.

    Day #3

    For Day #3, I wanted to see Z-Trip who was playing before 19:00, so I had to take an uber (shuttles start too late), and got there at 17:30 from the other side:


    Z-Trip did slay, so happy to have seen him in person. It's a shame that he played so early, which caused so many people to miss his set:

    And I finished the last night with a B2B between Saymyname and 12th planet:



    Video Summary:

    It was literally my first time staying until the end of EDC (my flight at 08:15 was just late enough that I could stay until 05:30, catch a shuttle back to my room, arrive at the hotel just before 07:00 and take an uber to the airport to catch my flight out: The ending ceremony was underwhelming, not a big deal that I missed it in the past:

    2021/10/15 ADE 2021 Day #4: Luminosity's This Is Trance at Panama, Amsterdam
    π 2021-10-15 01:01 in Clubbing
    With covid, it had been 2 years since This Is Trance at Panama in 2019, so glad to go back, even if it was more during day hours (15:00 to 00:00 due to the midnight curfew). Actually earlier hours was just as good, it's all about the lineup, and the lineup was solid.
    ADE Day #4 for my outfit, despite a lot of "close contact", survived and was still working. Even the neopixel strips were still working. I also found out that with my 3rd battery, I should get 13 to 14H runtime (about 240Wh of batteries for the 148,032 LEDs on the outfit):


    The different security staff that day had a quick look at my stuff, but again was nice enough to let me in without issues, although they didn't allow people to come in with even an empty bottle of water.

    Back at Panama, Panama, I missed you, and your 20cl glass bottled municipal water, as well as 2 euro fee to go use the toilets (but they are nice, you only pay once per night, and I didn't first have to exchange my money for worthless tokens, so it could be worse, haha. That was my fee to go refill my bottle of water)
    It's not a huge venue and it was packed to the brim, so it definitely gave for a more intimate feel. Everyone was having a great time. Actually I wondered if anyone was sober at all, and by that I don't mean beer, haha. The crowd vibes were just amazing:



    the VJs did a good job with lighting and lasers

    bring it on!

    Good to see John O Callaghan next, as always he's more calm and composed, but that didn't stop him from another great set too:

    Back in the main room, Bryan Kearney was next, and played trance that was less hard as usual. I enjoyed it more as a result:


    And Manuel Le Saux closed the night:




    It was also great to see the newlyweds Robert and Nadine Nickson for a group picture:


    Manuel nicely played a song for them:



    And after 9H the night was over, so much fun, one more picture with Suncatcher & Exolight, it was cool to meet again after Untold:

    While it was only 5H and really a warmup for the real ASOT 1000 rescheduled to feb 2022, given that we were all hungry for parties again, it was great to have this night:


    It was also cool to be on the official stream quite a bit, like here:

    π 2021-10-12 01:01 in Clubbing
    I was fresh off the 2 planes that got me to Amsterdam from California (no direct flight because of covid), and after getting setup in my hotel, I went straight to AFIS Live for the AMF Top 100 DJ Awards. It was obviously not a Trance event, but there was some good trance, and honestly the rest of the music was also enjoyable, so I had a good time. Due to the covid curfew, the event was only until midnight, which was fine since I was obviously jetlagged and tired :)

    AFIS Life was nice enough to let me in with my outfit without issues, overall the Dutch are more pragmatic, so I wasn't overly worried (except for that Luminosity incident in 2019). I was there 15mn before it opened, so I got in quickly, but made the mistake to take a few pictures before heading for the rail, so I never made front row during the night, but I still had a great time :)


    security was quick and painless

    AFAS Live was a pretty big venue:




    they had lasers, but they were fixed, could be a better setup I think

    It was a good night. The only downside was AFAS had pick pockets, which thankfully would have struggled to get things from my weird pockets, but that's not cool. That was a first good night, 3 more to go :)

    2021/10/09 Above and Beyond at Stanford
    π 2021-10-09 01:01 in Clubbing
    After seeing Above and Beyond at Creamfields (even if creamfields kind of sucked overall), and then ABGT 450 in London, they came 20mn from my house, so even if it was only a 4H event (really short) and Stanford, I had to go of course.
    The stanford security rules were a bit over the top. Almost nothing was allowwed, and they didn't want my outfit either, but thankfully a manager of a manager was nice enough to make an exception and let me in. Thank you.





    Pretty Pink started at 18:00:




    It got dark, went to see friends for pictures:









    Andrew Bayer took over after an hour:


    And by 20:00, Above and Beyond took over:










    It was a bit short (only 4h), but a good night. Definitely a good night:

    2021/10/09 Vini Vici at Midway SF
    π 2021-10-09 01:01 in Clubbing
    I need to keep the title short, but it was actually Tony Dex, Alastair James, Khromata, Vini Vici, and Achimyst. A lot of us arrived just around 23:00 for Khromata though because we were at Above and Beyond until 22:00.

    It was 3 hours of triplet bliss, thanks to all!

    Everyone had been shelterd a home for too long, last year we had an epic 72H twitch stream, but well, it was online only. This time it was in person again, with 4 rooms, people, friends, and lasers! The lineup was stacked.
