Sat Jul 30 :: VEMF INTERACTIVE ONSITE

Venue: Centennial Square

Description:

VEMF Interactive is a content-rich exploration into the various aspects of creating, performing & promoting electronic music. Whether you’ve always thought about becoming a DJ, or have been producing music for a decade, we’ve got something that will help take your game to the next level.

Over the two days of VEMF we will host 4 different dialogues that together will cover the vast majority of core issues specific to exploring a path in dance music! These workshops are delivered by established & successful producers, djs, promoters & club owners who have gained mastery in navigating the social environments, musical landscapes & technology trends specific to electronic culture.

We’re very excited to host these panelists for you and know you’ll get a ton out of Interactive Onsite! The VEMF Interactive Onsite Stream includes 4 conversations, as follows!:


1) TRANSFORMATIONAL FESTIVALS & NEW EVOLUTIONARY CULTURE
:: JEET-KEI LEUNG (Vancouver) | SAT JUL30, 1-2PM | FREE
—————————————​—————————————​—————————————​—-
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….
