Spirit Base
The Biggest Psychedelic Trance Festival in Austria

Spirit Base 2011 Psychedelic Trance Festival Flyer

Spirit Base has become the largest psychedelic trance festival in Austria since its inception in 2007. More than 5,000 visitors from all over Europe came in 2010. After eight years in a quarry in the south of Vienna, Spirit Base moves to a forest near Ernstbrunn where a Stone Age village was built for a TV production. The main floor, this year will be designed by several decoration teams, and there will be some visual surprises. Projections of Sikanda, 3D Visuals, UV decorations and special laser shows from Germany and Austria will transform the forest into a fantasy landscape. More than 100 international DJs and live acts from 20 countries are booked. The focus of the line-up is again on Progressive Trance, but Full-on, Dark-Psy, Oldschool and spacey Ambient are not be forgotten. In addition to the main floor there is a big chillout tent, as well as a third dance floor, which alternates in tempo with the main floor.

Spirit Base Psychedelic Trance Party 2011

Most artists come from Israel, Germany, Austria and several European countries, but also from some South American countries. Among the world-famous live acts and DJs are:

• Dino Psaras
• Bamboo Forest
• Ananda Shake
• U-Recken
• Klopfgeister
• Protonica
• Neelix
• Alpha
• Symphonix
• Shane Goby

…and many, many more!

Also, the local elite of DJs and Trance producers will be given a lot of space. A 40-meter chillout tent is hosted by Vienna’s Psy-DJ Gobayashi and his Astral Zone.

VJ Sikanda is famous for its gigantic projections that show the cultures of the world on all available surfaces. The “Funny Astronaut” and his team have been known for years for the light magic in Viennese clubs and on the Austrian Paradise Festival that takes place again later in July this year. Austria’s best decorative Psytrance artist Calaquendi and several artist teams will again provide huge and bright paintings and three-dimensional masterpieces of art. Fire shows, fireworks and performances round off the comprehensive offer.

Let Me Be Your Shamen
Killer Psychedelic Trance Mix

My set from this week is still untitled. It must be a bit early for the creative juices to be flowing.

Some weeks when I go looking for music, it seems like I have to listen to 100 tracks to find 1 or 2 good ones, but this week it seems like everything I listened to was brilliant! What started off as a tribute to Mekkanikka (who will be playing live at Organix (Club 23 West) in Vancouver next Friday, soon grew to include new music from Laughing Buddha, a new artist I’d never heard of before named Triptych, new tracks from TIP World and another new group named Mesmerizer. This week’s set is VERY psychedelic.

For the second half of the show, Caddyshack brought out some updated Union Jack sounds (a personal fave) as well as some mashed up classics. I could admit I didn’t write down his setlist because I was chatting with our studio guest, Jay (really glad you came by!), but it’s way more fun to just say Caddyshack’s set is top secret – like back in the day when DJs would be pretty reluctant to tell you what tracks they were playing ;)
