Who's behind Eclipse2012?
The question keeps coming up, 'who is putting on Eclipse 2012 festival in far North Queensland?’
The management team behind the event includes key members from renowned international events such as Rainbow Serpent Festival (Australia), Symbiosis Festival (USA) with support from Glade Festival (UK), Psyclone Events and Mosaic.
These organisations have come together to make this occasion, in remote far north Queensland one of Australia’s most memorable festivals.
More information on each organisation will be added shortly.
Symbiosis Festival (USA)
Symbiosis is ecstatic to co-produce their first international event. This wonderful opportunity to work with producers from around the world is made even more special by the fact that much of the inspiration for Symbiosis was gleaned from the inspiration of attending a 2003 Rainbow Serpent in Australia. Over the past 7 years, Symbiosis has attempted to create magical moments by weaving together music and good times with education and authentic intention. The opportunity to collaborate on such an amazing event is humbling and special.
Mosaic Vision works with innovative and creative artists to inspire change and new thought. Working with artists from all walks of life, Mosaic Vision aims to spread a positive message through innovative and creative arts and consciousness events. Previously part of the team who brought Alex Grey and Android Jones to Australia, as well as creating the Rainbow Serpent Lifestyle Village in 2012, the Mosaic crew are excited to be contributing to the Healing & Arts Village at the Eclipse2012 gathering.
Rainbow Serpent Festival
Over the past 15 years, Rainbow Serpent Festival has grown to become one of Australia's premier outdoor alternative lifestyle, music, and arts festivals. Promoting a strong ethos of unity, the festival – whose name is derived from the Dreamtime story of the Rainbow Serpent, is about connecting people from all walks of life throughout the world. With the anticipation of a total solar eclipse gracing the skies of Australia in 2012, the Rainbow Serpent team is excited to finally see this spectacular event come to life and is looking forward to collaborating with festivals producers from Australia and around the world.
Psyclone Events have been supporting and helping facilitate music and arts festivals around the globe since 2000. With a strong focus on providing unique eclipse experiences Psyclone Events have collaborated or organised a celebration for these celestial events in Turkey 2006, Siberia 2008, Kiribati 2009 and 2010 in the Cook Islands.
Intent on sharing the passionate work of artists from across all mediums Psyclone Events have assisted or sponsored numerous successful Australian and international outdoor festivals and events.
As the eclipse graces far north Queensland’s sky this November Psyclone Event’s goal is to provide all attendees a wondrous memory to carry forth for a lifetime.
Glade Festival is the premier underground dance festival in the UK, a kaleidoscope of beats, groundbreaking festival art, psychedelia and absurdism. Its organisers were also instrumental in the production of the Zambia 2001 and South Africa 2012 eclipse parties.
'We have been hearing about what an amazing party scene there is in Australia for years and cant wait to bring a little bit of the UK vibe with us down there ... eclipse parties are always a cut above vibewise and we are well chuffed to be involved'
