    Default Honu Eclipse - Total Solar Eclipse Festival!?

    sooo if you have about $3000 to spare this looks like a good time...

    it's on easter island and apparently the last total solar eclipse to occur there was in 591 AD

    basically this looks like the ultimate rave

    That would suck to get there and have trouble finding drugs. But methinks you just might be able to find some blow...

    Boredoms are doing an eclipse show where they're renting a boat and sailing to the place where it'll last for the longest, and are then going to play a set as the eclipse comes, lasts and goes. Other bands as well. I think it's going to be on a river in Russia.

    My plan for next summer was to save a lot of money and travel around the United States for a couple months. This is now my new plan, saving starts tomorrow.

    Chill Stage, and Healing Zone. This is too much. I would rather do this than Fuji Rock next summer. I'm saving. If Orbital was there, I would go no matter what!

    From their website:

    We know alot of you are eager to know the musical lineup for the festival. Rest assured you wont be dissappointed. We will releasing a few of the giants over the next few weeks, with multimedia interviews with the headhonchos of the various labels involved in the project. Ofcourse its going to be a very fine selection of the main artists from the supporting labels. Labels such as TIP World, Nano, Alchemy, Twisted, Neurobiotic, Interchill, Etnicanet, Planet BEN, amongst other.
    I looked around to see who's on those labels and I didn't recognize anyone. But of course that means nothing coming from me.

    I haven't checked the labels, but I feel like this type of festival renders new musical exploration and is worth the experience no matter what.

    Exclamation Re: Honu Eclipse - Total Solar Eclipse Festival!?

    Easter Island?
    Eclipse?
    Alex Grey?
    Shpongle?

    This is the trek to strive for.



    If Orbital was there..., it's game over man, game over...

    All I know is ever since I was little I wanted to go to Easter Island, and was always curious. This makes it even GREATER of a trip to strive for.

    Damn it the flight times are 21 - 41 hours and it costs $2,000 for plane tickets. That is not even for the solar eclipse week.

    you probably don't want to fly directly. the website suggests flying via santiago, so it may be worth staying there for a day or two. you might find better deals with separate flights.

    although you make a good point about it perhaps being more for solar eclipse week. they say:

    As you can imagine, demand for flights to arrive on the island during the 4-5 day peak period during and after the eclipse, will be intense to say the least. For this reason we ask you to prepare you journey well in advance, and expect to stay on the island for more time than just for the festival.
    I think my plans to hit glastonbury next year just went out the window.
