24. ANTARIS Project 2018 Review
The ANTARIS UFO has long been an indispensable part of the universe. Under its sparkling roof it unites party people from all over the world according to the motto: Laugh & Dance!The 24th ANTARIS was a beautiful festival, thanks to the best audience in the world: so many international, relaxed and openminded guests that contribute to the ANTARIS being a harmonious cosmos! New was the Red Dragon by Clear Sound who pumped its warm bass across the airfield. The talented guys from Quadrasonic and this time also master Eat Static played a terrific set in surround. Buju's Planet Deco on the Main Floor looked fantastic at all times of the day, and the Alternative Floor was fragile and magically shimmering with the new Flowers of Life team. The fairies and elves of the Elphame Fairycircus created a fairytale atmosphere in the Chillout. On Monday evening, the Antarians were then sent home after four days and three nights of best festival flair with a huge smile. It's clear that the 25th Anniversary ANTARIS will be even more sparkling and vibrant.

Interview with ANTARIS Project founder Uwe on the occasion of the 25th anniversary
Together with founder Uwe we look back on 25 years of Antaris, give him the opportunity to talk about this truly unique Psytrance festival from his point of view, which mushroom magazine as well as the international Psytrance scene have visited year after year with great enthusiasm and devotion.
What special features await us at the 25th, the Jubilee Antaris?
The jubilee edition will be full of light and moving images.
On the main floor Buju’s decoration will be perfected and the stage will get a spectacular all-round video mapping. The sound system will have even more speakers, including Föön basses in the middle: You can dance ON the bass again! The Alternative Floor will be equipped with a Föön sound system and Flower of Life decorations. There will also be video projections in the chill area this time. And every guest can look forward to an anniversary gift at the door!
How did it all begin? What has become of it today?
In August 1993 there was a legendary party night with Antaro, Scotty, Sangeet in a circus tent outside the gates of Berlin in Rüdersdorf. It was fucking cold, we warmed ourselves at the fire. On the yellow starred blue paper flyer it read, funny enough: Admission 7 p.m., beginning 8 p.m. One sole dance floor. Today it has become a professionally organized event with three floors and a lot of technology, was first located in Ostprignitz-Ruppin and now is in Havelland. In its core, in its heart, however it still is the ANTARIS.
From your point of view, what were particularly moving moments at the Antaris in the past years?
Low point: the absolute mudbath two years ago, in 2017. However, this low point turned into a high point. Because of the audience’s team spirit, exactly this ANTARIS became one of the three best ever in the end!
What theme are you dedicating the Antaris this year to?
Clearly, more important and up-to-date than ever before: AGAINST WAR, FOR FRIENDSHIP, PEACE AND FREEDOM!
The ANTARIS is for the eyes, for the ears, for the heart!
Will this really be the last chance to visit the Antaris?
Last chance ? Unfortunately, I cannot answer this question precisely at the moment because it all depends on many different factors. The final decision will probably not be made until September or October. It is all in the stars, so to speak, perhaps somebody somewhere in the universe knows the answer. I have visions for further chances! But if you want to experience the ANTARIS just as it is now and has been in the past years, as a huge glowing sparkling flying carpet with three wonderful floors, you should come. LAUGH&DANCE!
Heat and lightning, wind and weather: Even though the visitors of the longest-running Psytrance Festival in Stoelln near Berlin are likely to have experienced everything in the past few years, the 23rd ANTARIS 2017 probably exceeded in one thing: rain. The completely soggy ground presented the organizers with serious challenges. But those who took the long wait at the entrance, where only one of many tracks was passable, afterwards experienced a terrific stage show on the main floor including electrifying sound quality and acts like Quadrasonic, Man with No Name, Astrix, Electric Universe or Ace Ventura. A cult festival of extremes in every respect.
According to organizer Uwe, for him the 23rd number is even among the three best festivals of the long ANTARIS story. Why? There were a lot of prudent and euphoric guests holding up and sharing a genius atmosphere. Everywhere radiant faces, which got rewarded with more and more sun towards the end. According to the organizer, with no other ANTARIS there have been fewer incidents and emergencies than with this one.
The ANTARIS crew, along with all the artists and contributors, fought for the best – and continues on this path in 2018. The 24th ANTARIS will take place from 13 to 16 July 2018 in Stoelln. The motto remains: LAUGH & DANCE! FOR FRIENDSHIP, PEACE AND FREEDOM!
