Share your most intense Psytrance experience ever
They were many. and many was more meaningful for me. But once I was experiencing sky of diamonds for real during Astrix’ set.
Did you have a special experience with mushroom magazine that you would like to share with us?
Once it was my handbook for half of a summer.
Hold on your love, psytrancers of the universe!
Even if I ‘only’ 18 yrs with you – I enjoyed every Single Party. The community, the smiles, the music, the art, the festivals, that overwhelming feeling on the floor made me who I am today.
We made a great and beautiful festival in 2008 and 2012 in Bolivia… in the wild jungle of “Los Yungas” this festival made history in our country.
Congratulations mushroom magazines !!! Omedeto !!!(Congratulations in Japanese )
Happy to know this Psytrance culture I’m lucky !!!
Goa Trance has been, for many of us in the USA, a difficult road to follow, with many pot holes and bumps along the way. Altho I was able to get my hands on many goa records and CDs as an emerging DJ, I found myself writing trance in the basement of Space Dub Studios beginning around 1994.
One night I was invited to join the organisation of Earth Dance for their event at a squatted location in Amsterdam, which was a global party that was simultaneously taking place in hundreds of locations around the globe
Durch Trance zurück – zurück zu den Wurzeln und Energie bündeln für Harmonie und Einklang und dies nicht zuletzt mit der fantastischen Natur!
It was 2009 when I, aged 22, moved to live in Goa with my 6-months old son Marko. I was chilling and going to parties together with my child for a couple of years, and then when he was grown up enough to stay away in a local kindergarden, I started to hand-craft clothing.
Alongside the various CD booklets, few printed magazines and local radio stations, mushroom magazine was definitely for me the ‘internet’ of the pre-internet era. Whatever insight i got into our scene was through these few mediums.

“They were many. and many was more meaningful for me. But once I was experiencing sky of diamonds for real during Astrix’ set.”
I want to say THANK YOU to Mat Mushroom and the MUSHROOM Magazine for the last 25 years. All the time you were with me, guided me and I always enjoyed your presence and interviews.
Harmonic festival offers a relaxed setting for you to enhance the balance between your body, mind and soul in harmony with universal values such as equity, collective responsibility, sharing and caring.
Big thanks for all your support of the psychedelic community over all those years and good luck & full support for your digital future!
We are Marco and Renato, dreamers from Portugal, and we would like to share with you guys a vision. Our vision within this Universe of ours.
I can tell a lot of things the last 25years of Psytrance, which i lived and shared entirely. It started from a Rave in a forest or in old farm, grew from experimental to underground and now we can say it is a standard.
