shambhala music festival photos 2007

These photos are all from the ‘opening’ night (Thursday) and the opening night (Friday)

They are nice n grainy and all taken without a tripod on slow shutter speeds so it look all a bit soft focus. Always seems appropriate for party pictures somehow…

In the parking fields and group camping areas the grass becomes the finest of brown dusts. It looks like moon dust when you step which is kinda cool but it’s not so good in the lungs. Arrive early to get under the tress.

Laser Guided Clairvoyance (Shambhala Music Festival, British Columbia, Canada – 2007)

Personal lasers the size of a pen were making an appearance. Single, powerful, green beams, great for firing at crystal balls if there just happen to be any lying about.

I count 16 people on stage (not including the dancers). Must make it a little hard to mix

  2. Paradineshift, well whatdya know… This could be a stretch of the memory, but it’s Daniel here, from NZ, met you a couple of years ago through psy dj and your parties…with my german flatmate at the time Hendrik, dinner at yours, hmmm.

    Well, anyways, nice photos from the party, and looks like you had a cool time in India. I spent 4 months there on my way over to the UK, pretty special place, a LOT to absorb through all senses (its funny one of your photos could have been mine, same beard, same hat, same shoulder bag even!). So hows things in BC? Ive been thinking of heading those ways myself, not connecting with as many like minded friends over here in london. Squeezes in a few nice festivals last year, Soulcipse in Turkey and BOOM (absolutely epic!) plus hooked up with Hendrik for a few german style, including one he put on, that was fun but extremely tiring!!

    So, would be cool to connect again (if you can remember who I am…)
    All the best,
    L&L
    Daniel.

  3. hi

    i was wondering about your policy on reprinting images of the fractal forest on a non-profit tribe.net discussion room about psychedelic visuals. the images would certainly be creditted and linked to you and your site.

    hope to hear from you soon.
    -thanks

    Hey that is no problem. Go for your life. Everything is Creative Commons as far as I’m concerned :)

    There was some nice deco and Shambhala. Much respect to those who put their time and effort in. I think I’ll try to volunteer to help with the portal deco in some form this year, so if you know who is responsible for that please drop me a line

    @ Daniel

    I’m pretty sure we go in touch via email but memory is foggy. We’d sure like to catch up with you if you are heading over this way. Let me know eh? Shambhala is a good festival to aim for if you were thinking of coming – certainly the biggest party in BC.

  5. Paradineshift! Good to see the blog back up. Just did a search for it after ages and spent some time going through it. Some tasty bits of info on there. Am now back in London for a while – did send you an email earlier today as well actually

    Some nice pics from Shambhala here. Canada does have a really nice psy collective, I miss it.

    Anyways, stay in touch!

  7. Awesome photos. I just got back from my first Shambhala and was looking up photos. Nice to see these ones from 2007 and see how things compare. Have you gone back since?
