That's no typo, we're calling this a party birthday because this was first and foremost A FVCKING PARTY! Most active ravers at least know of the legendary cruise Holy Ship, but only a select few know of SHIPFAM. This lovable crew of respectable misfits have been attending Holy Ship annually since it's inception and come with lots of advice and colloquial expressions. We first came into contact with members of SHIPFAM while we were covering L4LM’s Brooklyn Spa parties this winter. Luckily, after 3 years of trying, we secured a spot aboard Holy Ship’s upcoming February voyage. Once prebooked, we were given access to their private Facebook group, where we stumbled upon Emily Morin’s original post about her idea to book a ferry boat on Lake Champlain for her birthday party. Taking no more than a few glances at her profile and hilarious Holy Ship photos, almost all of which involved pineapple, we thought “YES! This has to happen!” and immediately pre-paid her for our tickets.
Selling out in mere hours every year, the two-day Bassnectar weekend at Red Rocks Amphitheater each summer has attracted fans from around the country for 4 years running. Making the pilgrimage to Denver for the chance to experience one of Lorin Ashton’s unique sets in such a spiritual and natural setting was an incredible opportunity we couldn’t refuse, so we headed out to Morrison, Colorado to live out the dream ourselves.
Mysteryland, the longest running Electronic Dance Music festival in the world, hosted its first event on US soil Memorial Day weekend at the legendary Bethel Woods camp grounds in New York; home of the original '69 Woodstock Festival. The echoing sentiments of peace, love, and unity brought good vibes and positive spirits to campers, regardless of early temperamental weather.
