Now you can see whats going on at Burning Man and escape from your office drudgery….couldn’t get there? Here’s a balm for you…..There are art cars, dust storms, big-ass art installations, sunsets, sunrises, and bike riders galore. Just throw on some of your favorite Playa house music and pretend you’re basking in the Black Rock City sun.
It’s summer: you’re coasting along the highway – a sweetly rumbling engine and good tunes in your ear, the summer wind on your face. Imagine spending an entire summer in nature, living simply, constantly seeing new things and meeting new people, and consistently being surrounded by incredible music and art. You’ll spend weeks in environments that encourage free self expression, where you can indulge in the luxury of being your truest self. This is the appeal of a nomad summer spent road-tripping from festival to festival.

At long last, Victory made it home to Nelson, BC after a tumultuous exit from a month at Lucidity Fest in pre and post production. Her van broke down in San Fran to the tune of $2000, leaving her thinking she was stranded in the states. Our good hearted and beautiful community in action offered her sanctuary – a vendor heading to LIB offered to hire her for the show, other shows and websites dreamed up short term jobs to help her raise funds. Festival family offered their homes, warm beds and good eats to nourish her during the interim…and in the end a loan was made, the van fixed and a glorious journey via Mt Shasta magic carpeted her home. Thank you kind people, its good to belong where the heart is.
