From early roots in rave culture, a new breed of transformational festival has evolved that has been profoundly affecting the lives of hundreds of thousands, while still remaining outside the mainstream gaze. Blossoming over the west coast and spreading internationally, these festivals have taken the time-honoured ritual of ecstatic dance back to its natural origins and built around them richly co-created, cutting-edge realities that give their participants the lived glimpse of a very possible future—one based on creativity, expression, inspiration, sharing, healing and compatible diversity. Jeet-Kei Leung aka DJ Mazeguider has been an iconic figure in Vancouver’s tribal dance underground for nearly 15 years. His riveting, groundbreaking talk on the meaning and model behind these festivals will open your eyes and mind to the real significance and vital generativity that have been brewing in these transformational festivals. Accompanied by the stunning photography by Kyer Wiltshire, Alexander Synaptic and others, come see what people have been raving about from TEDxVancouver, Hollyhock Summer Gathering, to festivals such as Entheos, Bass Coast, The Oracle Gatherings and now VEMF….
