Psy-Fi Festival – Seed of Science

“It’s all in the details now”

There’s really only one downside if you organize one of the most popular festivals of the European summer:
You’re facing very high expectations, from your visitors and from your own team. Psy-Fi is a perfect example for this scenario. We had a chat with co-organizer Rob.

Exactly how do you measure the satisfaction of your audience? Obviously it’s a good sign to see huge smiles on a packed dancefloor. But that’s just a snapshot and not fully representative. For instance, Social Media feedback can differ greatly from those nice dancefloor shots…

Many times a year we come together as a team and discuss all the things that went well and all the things that need improvement. We read all the emails and Facebook comments of our visitors and listen to what is important to them. That way we keep adjusting the festival to meet their needs as good as we can. This is now our 7th edition and we do feel that we are getting stronger as a team and that the festival improves by that every year. We also believe that we are never done learning and never done improving, there is no such thing as a perfect festival, but we try to get as close as possible.

Exactly how close did you get this year?

I can truly say that our program for this year is the best we ever had. Musically the line-up is very well balanced on all stages and personally I think it is the best line-up we’ve ever had. Art-wise, the same: More, better quality, new teams and super interesting visual eye candy everywhere. The spiritual program on our sacred island got a good upgrade since last year, we clearly noticed a big growth of the audience. That resulted in bigger lecture and workshop spaces and an even better program. As for sound quality, we also have an upgrade using the latest technology. It’s all in the details now.

Psy-Fi has seen a stellar rise in popularity, on all 5 continents. It’s fair to say that it reached to upper league of the European festival season. Nonetheless you keep your festival at a relatively small scale. Why?

We never strived to be the biggest festival and attract as many visitors as possible. Instead, we think that quality is way more important than quantity. That is one of the reasons why we have limited ticket sales to 13.000. We try to offer a program that is as complete as possible varying from a great musical line-up to an extended spiritual program to a broad spectrum of visual arts.

Last question: For many people the Netherlands are synonymous with a very liberal drug policy. Any comments on that?

Well, we do have quite a friendly government who welcomes our visitors and lifestyle with open arms into their community, and that is a good feeling. I do think there is a common misunderstanding that people have about the Netherlands and its drug policy. It is liberal, yes, but not everything is allowed, of course, just like in most other countries.

Psy-Fi

We have important news to share with you. The coming edition of Psy-Fi will be the last one on our current location. We have decided to leave the Psy-Fi land behind and in the future carry on elsewhere.

When and how is not sure yet but we will keep you posted on that for sure.

.
All our focus is now on Psy-Fi 2019. We will create the best Psy-Fi so far and go out with a blast, that much is sure. It is the end of an era and we hope you will be there to celebrate it with us!

We thank all of you for your support over the past 7 years, for that we are ever grateful.

For now, stay tuned and see you in August for a final dance on Psy-Fi land!

Thank you for the great years! I will miss the Psy-Fi land. Maybe the location of the Wildeburg Festival would be a nice alternative. See you at the final dance.

Respect guys! Can’t wait to be there and joining you for this great celebration 🙏☮️👊

Change of scenery is a good thing, nice to know in advance this is the last time here. Keep up the good work!

Probably it is something to do with this I guess? www.lc.nl/friesland/leeuwarden/Leeuwarden-scherpt-regels-rondom-drugs-op-festivals-aan-24661281.html I'm very sad. I went every year to Psy-fi since 2014 and it's gotten better ever year and I've made a ton of friends and memories there. I'm gutted this is our last year on that sacred land...

Psy-fi is one of best festivals I've experienced and the place was superb. I hope you can find something as good to replace it.

Very sad to see that they leavin this location But i think it the organisation knows what they doing Glad i bought a ticket this year

Hello everyone Last year I had the pleasure of being in the Boom festival and guess what this year I decided to get to Psy-fi I was lucky to be in the current place.... I heard he is amazing place went up and succeeded!!!

Respect. You're the best festival and sure you will find even better location)

Please no!! :( this is the magic land! i feel blessed that i had the opportunity to experience Psy-Fi 2015 + 2016. anyway, i hope the psy-fi will stay in the same place, because the place is important issue from all that big picture that calld "psy-fi". however, i will arrive to the psy-fi wherever you decide to do it <3

I had plans to go next year... for the first time :( i hope you guys will find a better location... :(

Thank you for the awesome experiences at psy fi 💫 this was my very first psytrance festival ♥️

Too bad such info is out so late. This is why its bad. The new location could be even better.. But since the news are out now, it is already too late for me to change all my plans for the year to go and experience Psy-Fi this year. And guess what? Next year I wont be able to either, because the new location isnt even decided yet.. 🤷‍♂️

PsyFi en de groenester waren een fantastische match. Een teleurstellend maar begrijpelijk besluit van de organisatie. ‘Lets make this edition the best one!’ 💪🏾💙🙏🏽

Saddest news I've ever heard after being part of this festival for the past two years.. totally gutted I will never see it at its spiritual home again sad so so sad ....

You Dutch people are never going to find peace with your government, Always a problem! 💥 I hope for the best 👊🏻🙌🏻

Wow that's good and bad news for me, first and last time in this sacred land I beloeve

Maybe i need to get a ticket after all :c psyfi has a special place in my heart for the epic times i had over there for the past years.

Blij dat wij er voor de 3 sommige 4 keer van mogen genieten . En dat er een fijne plek voor terug komt . Deze plek mogen we danken voor wat we daar hebben mogen be-leven met zijn alle ☮💜🧡🤩😍

Dit maakt mij toch best een beetje verdrietig. Zeker aangezien ik dit jaar helaas moet missen. Gelukkig heb ik sinds 2014 verder geen editie gemist. Psy-fi, je zit in mijn hart! Hopelijk wordt er een mooie locatie gevonden waar het feest lekker door kan gaan! Tot de volgende!

Yes, new place 😀... Happy end, think all of you psyfamilia 😘

The first one in groningen, was the best location 👌🤩

😭jammer. Maar ik ben al benieuwd naar de nieuwe locatie. Maar voor dit jaar gaan we er een geweldig feest van maken 💪😂. Tot gauw, en ik heb er zin an.

Do not give up, you will find another site and we will follow you because the most important is not the place, but it is to continue to dance in the magnificent festival that you have built for 7 years. Geef niet op, je zult een andere site vinden en we zullen je volgen omdat het belangrijkste niet de plek is, maar het is om door te gaan met dansen op het prachtige festival dat je 7 jaar hebt gebouwd. 🙂

First time was best time in de groene ster... second time there was silent music on main floor at night, that was a real bummer, time to move to a new venue! Groene ster is an awesome location, but the rules are not in conjuction with the psy-family i think... wish you guys luck in search for a new and maybe even better location! After all, there is lots of open space in the Netherlands

I agree with you Billy ..I did have high hopes for this with it been the nearest Psy fest to us but then it finished so early and low volume throughout the day ?? Did think they would be moved years ago ?? But let's see how long this post stays up here eh ??
