Spirit Base: The biggest Trance Event in Europe in Spring 2010
A six Days Festival called “Desert Trip”

Vienna/Austria, March 2010 - "Desert Trip" is the motto of Spirit Base Festival 2010, the biggest and longest Trance festival in Europe, which will take place from June 2 - 7 2010 in Rauchenwarth, a small village in Lower Austria, located 15 kilometres from Vienna. Like in 2009, thousands of fans from Austria and all over the world are expected to dive into the wonder-world of music, colours, fantasy and colourful projections. 50 live-acts and 40 DJs will provide non-stop music on two dance floors for six days.

For the 8th time the sand quarry near Rauchenwarth is going to be transformed into a multidimensional space of colours. The multi-colour-laser system will come from German light-wizard Kularis. Spirit Base is the biggest trance event in Austria for many years now. This year, the festival’s motto is “Desert Trip”. Light artists will create magical three-dimensional light objects on floors and walls. Decorations, the stage and light effects will be designed in desert-style and black-light will dominate the five nights.

As in the years before, the line-up is focussed on Progressive Trance, but also Full-On Psytrance, Dark-Psy, Old School Psytrance and spacey Ambient tunes will not miss out. Nearly a hundred live-acts, DJs and other artists from 16 countries and four continents are expected this year. Most come from Mexico, Israel and Germany, but also from Russia and South Africa. Live-acts and DJs like Protoculture, Atomic Pulse, Azax Syndrome, Feuerhake, Alpha and the Klopfgeister " all these acts are as popular in the Psytrance scene as Madonna in the rock scene. Many Austrian musicians and DJs will also perform at the festival. The chillout tent with a diameter of 40 metres is hosted by the Viennese Psytrance DJ Gobayashi. This spacey and comfortable time-and-space-world will be kept open all around the clock.

Optical effects, visuals and projections will be created by the team led by El Geko, who has been responsible for the visuals on New Year's Eve Festival Universo Paralello in Brazil. VJ Benski from New Zealand who also toured with the Red Hot Chilie Peppers will support him. He will show a new technique that allows HD-3D real-time response to the beats. Objects will change colours with the beats. The several meters high projections of Sikanda will take the people to a three-dimensional light journey into the deserts from all over the world. Oversized geometric, fluoro-coloured objects created by Calaquendi and several decoration teams are being constructed months before the festival starts and will create a visual experience on the dance-floor. The festival decoration will be alike the world of Avatar. Fire shows, fireworks and performances will also be mind-blowing highlights in this year.

Several restaurants will offer international cuisine from Austrian specialties to Israeli and Indian delicacies such as falafel and chai. The breakfast will be served in the chill-out tent. About 30 stalls and shops will sell spacey trance-wear, jewellery, pictures and all kinds of bric-a-brac.

The festival infrastructure includes parking and camping sites, showers and toilets. A shuttle bus from the train station in Himberg will drive directly to the festival grounds for those coming by public transport. The prices for the presale tickets are 60 Euros until 1st March, 70 Euros until 1st May and 80 Euros until 1st June. The festival pass is valid for six days. At the festival gates the tickets will cost 30 to 90 Euros according to the length of stay. Online-tickets are available at www.spirit-base.at.
