It’s less than a month away now. I am looking forward to this event in a very big way. Alternate Reality will be playing (that’s VJ Baby K and I) as well as a host of other great dj’s and live acts. You can find out more about us as a DJ/VJ team here. It starts on the 11th of July and for 4 straight days you’ll hear some amazing psytrance and meet some fantastic people. And of course enjoy Baby K’s amazing visuals.
I have been in touch with the promoter, and the site looks amazing. There is a 18th century castle on the site. There is an outstanding camping area and loads of parking. There will be a chill out area with food stalls and clothing shops. The main stage will feature, as always, amazing decor, but this year there is also a laser show as well as Baby k’s twisted visuals. The weather has been great, with days in the high 20’s (that’s like 85 if you are not a celsius fan), the open fields are dry and perfect for camping.
There will be fire and bubble workshops with lots to do if you want to get away from the music for just a bit. If you ever need any help, you’ll find an info point in the castle garden nestled among the 18th century statues.
The site is compact and easy to get around. No 45 minute walks between venues, the bar and the food. Of course the jewel on the crown of Funny Moon is the people who go to this festival. I have never met a nicer crowd of people at any event.
Entry is cheap at only 45 Euros for all days or Friday 40, Sat 35.
There are even lower prices for Eastern Europeans (Cz,Sk,H,Rom) 30-euros (for all days) Friday 25, Sat 20. But you’ll need to show ID or passport. The promoter is just keeping it fair to those that can afford more.
Trust me, you don’t want to miss this one. No mater if you are out and about traveling or on the summer festival trail, make plans now. It’s not hard to get to either. Driving is the easiest way. From Vienna take the E59 toward Jihlava then Autobahn 1 towards Prague Exit #10 on E50 – Direction Plzen… Exit #26 on E48 direction Karlovy Vary, Exit 20km before Karlovy vary on the right side – Libkovice / Valic, take your First right- Next left – you are there.
If you want to get there on public transport, you’ll need to get a train or bus to Karlovy Vary in Czech, and get a taxi from there, which should cost less than £2o. Just tell the driver you want to go to Valec. Trains and busses go from Germany, Pague and Vienna. Be sure to bring a tent, sun screen, something warm for the nights and lots of smiles.
