    Default Sea of Dreams NYE 2012

    The sound may not be the best. But this is one killer ass party. The vibe is amazing, and that's what brings me back year after year.

    From an-ten-nae's newsletter:
    December 31 2011
    Sea of Dreams
    Craziest lineup yet


    Guesses or wishes on headliners?
    Last year we got three headliners announced towards the end of September. Found a flier with them on it at earthdance. I am guessing thats when we will hear something this year.

    main stages sound is the only stage that sounds decent, the sound wasnt unbearable though, they need to drop a stage so the bleed isnt so bad and i would'nt complain very much.

    would be very cool too have tipper playing. I could see this happening.

    edit: actually this would be the most amazing way to bring in the new year.

    I'd only see Tipper if he was playing a nu skool breaks set again.

    ^Just wondering when you last saw tipper? And what you dont like about the direction he went? I still hear that break beat sound in his sets. This dude is all over the board when he plays. Love his old and new material.

    A tipper downtempo set would be best, but a breaks set would be equally as awesome.

    Any recommendations on hotels?

    I have gone to SoD the last four years and have stayed at The Good every time. Their rates are normally around 100/night for NYE and it is within walking distance to the venue (it is a bit of a hike though). It is pretty much a glorified hostel but the rooms are clean and it is a pretty nice place.

    Saw him at Nocturnal Texas last year.
    He still rocks it live, don't get me wrong, but having been a Tipper fan since the late 90s I tend to hold the nu skool breaks era with extreme fondness.

    just think its funny you would "only" see him if he played a breaks set. to each his own though

    I find it hard to resist when Tipper is on a lineup, if he was at Sea of Dreams they might bring me back.
    Last year was...mmm, not the best.
    Good times no doubt, but after getting punched in face by a twirling want to be Sufi, and experiencing the joys of rave rain, it lost my interest a little.

    Really wouldn't mind a reason to drive up for this, though they're probably going to end up with whoever TAO doesn't want.

    I think this event goes for a much different artist roster, than TAO. tao more elctro, techno, and house. this more on the IDM, dubstep, breaks, and jam band.

    Have you ever seen a Sea of Dreams lineup?

    ^ Apparently not.

    If tipper plays ill crap diamonds. Diamonds.

    Hoping Bassnectar doesnt play. After just seeing him on the Divergent Spectrum tour, he's completely lost his touch. I miss the Mesmerizing the Ultra Lorin


    Also, anyone else have any hotel recomendations? Dont want to drop a crap ton and plan on after-partying, any good ideas as to where I should go?

    Bassnectar really has lost his touch, have not listened to his new album, but after seeing him five times last year I'm a bit burnt out on him. Still respect what he does and love blasting some of his older tracks here and there. He played in 2010, and really has gained a lot more fame in the last two years. I doubt he will be here but doing something else where on NYE, prob his own show;ie: bass island, bass center or whatever the fuck he calls it.I even think one of his events was on nye last year.

    dont know about hotel rooms, but there are a shit ton of after parties in SF on new year day. like breakfast of champions, but i usually feel like crashing out after dancing tell five in the morning.

    I really thought I read somewhere that TAO was not happening this year. I might be making that up. Maybe it was a dream.

    Seconded. I have the funds and the time off this year. Enjoyed myself immensely the year we all went. Hope it happens again.
