OK that was a fantastic fantastic time. Art work was incredible. That dragon was just killer. Beautiful people as always. The Chill Out area was sharp and I was really happy to have checked it out a few times this year as I never did last year. The beach was great (despite the actual beach disappearing from last year) and the water relatively warm.

The music had its ups and downs but some acts were just fantastic. I definitely like progressive more than full on, but loved Shane Gobi's DJ set on Saturday morning. Nuclear Ramjet's live set was so top notch. Hiilaious visuals. Seeing John Travolta on the screen during their set was just fantastically odd! Jaia did not disappoint with tons of new music I hadn't heard. And wow Peter Didgital just played the crazziest tracks. One of the best DJ sets I have ever heard.

Anyways, here are some of my pictures. Enjoy.

I was very afraid on the drive up.....I had hyped up this soooo much to the people i was bringing, but i didn't think it was possible for it to be any better than it was last year.

But, Holy fucking shit, was i wrong! Eclipse 2006 was the greatest thing ever.

The music this year was awesome! Last year I mostly hung around the downtempo area and wasn't into the trance stage that much. This year, however, was BANGIN at the main stage! I didn't catch a lot Friday night since i was so tired from the 10 hour drive i made from boston, but all of saturday blew me away. waking up to perfect morning trance; groovin to a funky breaks set around noon; and then chillin on the beach to live reggae was perfect. There were many different styles of music represented, which I think is a good thing for psychedelic culture.

Now, I must make a separate paragraph to explain how trancendental saturday evening was. Shankar was a master tabla player and had me hypnotized until the FM Radio Gods came out to jam with him. This...was...the greatest....musical performance...I HAVE EVER SEEN! It was the sickest psyambient beats and space music mixed with this amazing spiritual tabla player who could flow like water. I wanted to dance, but all i could do was lay on my back in the middle of the main area, absorbing 50,000 watts worth of psychedelic auditory bliss, staring up at the clearest blue sky that I thought only existed in my dreams, feeling pure and utter interconnected peace.

Now for the rest of the day. I loved the FM Radio Gods ambient set and had a very personally significant experience during it (Eclipse is magickal like that; anyone who's been there will tell you that). I had heard a few Bluetech tracks before but I am now a confirmed fan as his sunset-set was definately off the hook. I'm not really a big electro fan, so I wasn't too into the FM Radio Gods' electro set, but my roommate is into that music and said she really enjoyed it....like I said, there was a diverse musical variety there, which i think is great, even though I'm not necessarily into all of it.

I'm sure other board members can give much more in-depth reviews about the trance artists than I can, but all I'll say is that I thought it was awesome this year. I'm generally more of a downtempo kinda guy and was really looking forward to chillin down by the river at night, but i just could not leave the main area! The late evening prog served its purpose well in warming up the floor, but then it went straight to full-on madness! The vibe was incredible, there were big smiles on everyone's faces, people dancing furiously all over the place, the artwork by Nagul was breathtaking, I'm a sucker nifty laser shows, and of course there were beautiful French Canadian women everywhere

I could go on forever about my personal experiences, but all I'll say is that its a memory that will last a lifetime. Its always so hard to say "au revoir" to Quebec, but alas, all good things come to an end. I can't thank Tech Safari enough for creating this entity again for all the right reasons. Can't wait for Eclipse 2007!

definitely one of my top experiences so far in trance partying.
the journey from north carolina was long but exciting... so nice to see french roadsigns and hear a different language being spoken.
that said this was my first international party experience! and to top it off i so loved installing my art prints and playing music for everyone in the chillout. it was my first time printing my collages for display at an event like this and all the wonderful feedback i got was very helpful and motivating!

i did spend a majority of my time int eh chillout and swimming when i wasnt on the way to get food or to dance a bit in the main area.
but overall i found the music in the main area tobe of high quality but often not gritty or heavy enough for my tastes. though i do think during the day the dj selections were not so crazy to avoid giving the people heatstroke....friday night was more my style. guru/vodkas from the food stall helped a lot! hehehe
my favorite mainstage acts i heard were: yann, br34th3, ekoplex, bluetech, fm radiogods w shankar, and the tagset from edo/shanegobi at the end was funnnn...
the main stage art installations from nagual were inspiring and optically delicious.

the chillout area was fun and very relaxing contrast to the hot upstairs. the best sounds came from semira, aquarius, longstocking, mat thc, biobazar, lexifer, bluetech, selecta rew, and jaia... oh and the cool reggae from raw sugga was so fun to hear while relaxing in the shade... very nice.
well, pretty much everyone i heard in the chillout was playing cool stuff. pretty bangin on saturday night but then again it was too cold to sit still, good techy groovy sounds pumping out while i was napping....

the food was tasty, the servers were never less than friendly even throuugh the hot afternoons and the busy times when they were overwhelmed.
loved the smoothies, and i think i had the best cheeseburger ever... the pizza guy had the right idea also.. yum!

the location was pristine and gorgeous. the river flowed smoothly and cooled us down as we swam probably more than 5 times a day.... the sunsets and starry nights were truly breathtaking! loved all the butterflies...

one thing i did notice a lot of was cigarette butts and bottlecaps being littered, i picked up over 100 bottlecaps over the 5 days i was there... leave no trace is not a new concept... also the overwhelming amount of waterbottles and trash that accumulated and just sat on the dancearea for hours and hours. granted there wasnt enough trashbins, but it sortof detracted from the experience for me on sunday.

ultimate top notch thanks to tech safari crew, most especially cafrine, yann and eric, for all their support and hospitality. for picking us out the best campsite. for the cold beers and food, for the smiles and laughter. for the opportunity for adventure and to share my art and music... thanks cafrine for the extra dj set (though i was bummed to miss neerav)
thanks chris aquarius, dan, longstocking, and the chillout stage gang for all the fun and backstage antics!
semira thank you for helping us sell our shirts and jewelry!
selecta rew thanks for buying my art! you rock!

to everyone else,,, thanks for being so beautiful!

BIG BOOM to Eclipse family.
we love canada!
see you next year

It's taken me a while to decompress from getting back to NYC on Monday morning and I still really haven't. This was me and my boyfriend's first festival out of the USA and we had an M-Fing blast. The shuttle ride was quite an experience but it was slightly backwards to have it leave so late and we got on a bus where the driver got lost. It was kind of funny though. The land was beautiful and the stars at night were breath taking. The main area was something I've never seen before. I LOVED the dragon and Nagual's work was hypnotizing, I wonder if he/she does shirts? The sets were great, we travelled to see Shane Gobi again, Wizzinoise, Jaia OMG! Goooooood times. The beach was great even the ice-water and the chill-out area did everyone justice.

The people were suprizingly sweet and open even though my french was horrible. I smiled at some really neet people even though I wish I could have met more people, next year then.

BSM makes a good point, way too many bottles and butts, I was tripping over them while trrying to dance and when sugary drink bottles dry up, they attract flies and bees which buzz around the DJ's heads as they are trying to spin and they can't spin because they are fighting off dangerous insectiods.

Thank you Tech Safari crew, what a great festival and thank you for all the help on travelling there. It was worth the trip.

When Wrecked Machines was scheduled to play all I remember hearing was 80's and 90's pop remixes and generic sounding cliche samples. Admittedly I was trying to catch a nap during this time so it may have just been a nightmare.

unfortunately it was no nightmare. nice sets from jaia and peter didgital though made my last five hours of dancing very pleasurable, even if painful (wow what a sunburn)

totally agree with that... peter digital and shane gobi made the day for me although the sunburn is still killing my skin and doesn't seem to want to go away...

however i feel it was worth it all and if i had to i'd go back and dance all day just as i did then...

will any of u be making it for peter digital in toronto this weekend????

Wow that was a killer party. The sun was shining the whole weekend. My favorite part was dancing on sunday with all my friends.
I had a lot of fun playing my live set for the first time at a big trance festival. I got lots of good feedback. Good inspiration to keep on writing. Thank you sooo much Eric, Yann, Cathrine and the rest of the Tech Safari crew.
The chill area was really nice as well. Nice sets by Jess and Chris and Boris.
Peace
