and this weekend there are about 12 of us!!?? vayaaa empieza la fiesta ya!

25th April 2013 :

some random stuff i need for the festival – a toilet seat, rakes, a 12v inverter, some cable/wire not too thin, a gong, bunting, can anyone help me here??? this party is a collaboration between many many people… maybe you too! (nearly) full line-up here :

24th April 2013 :

a group of us made a shade structure and benches in the sun last weekend… the site is looking better every week – pictures here

unfortunately the offer of a super pedal power soundsystem has fallen through, which means we are back to the old plan of charging batteries, and making our own bike generators.. anyone got battery powered amplifiers we can borrow? i think a few of those as back up would be a good plan!

i’m hoping to have a bunting making session next week, and i’ll be in touch with all you workshop leaders soon to ask if you want to promote anything in the yurt of information!

14th April 2013 :

we have about 40 tickets left… and huge thanks to those of you who bought VIC tickets (very important contributor) we may yet create a velvet rope area just for you…

there are more and more people offering workshops! in addition to the published line up we have Ale Fernandez doing music improvisation, and Stefan Blasel giving us an introduction to the idea of an alternative economy… and if there’s too many workshops to fit in between the partying then you’ll just have to come back to boodaville another time to catch up 🙂

10th April 2013 :

we’ve got 5 people signed up for our big weekend on the 20th april!! – if anyone else wants to join us that would be great – let me know!

and we are getting organised for the food – we have a food team leader Devon who will be in charge of buying all the food for the weekend in advance! She has worked at communal kitchens at the burning man festival and will be bringing her experience to boodaville. all food on site can be bought at cost price, and we hope that many of you will get involved in some outdoor cooking. if you would like to be a member of the food team and learn about food preparation in the outdoors, please let me know and i’ll put you in touch with Devon –

¡¡NOW BUY YOUR TICKET!! (if you haven’t already)

somos 5 el fin de semana de 20 de abril, si quieres apuntarte enviarme un mail

y tenemos Devon, una chica americana con experiencia cocinando en el “burning man festival” para organizar todo la comida durante el finde. va a hacer las compras, y a lo mejor muchos de vosotros quieren ayudar con la preparacion. si te interesa trabajar como parte del “comission de comida” te pasaré el mail de Devon – avisame!

5th April 2013 :

i tracked down co-organiser Austin (in San Fransisco- but back soon!) to talk about the structures we want to build – tyres and concrete sounds like a plan to get some seriously strong poles and create a big shade/activity space. and we are looking for a simple design to make some benches (sustainable of course) if anyone has any ideas.

the weekend of 20th April will be a big building weekend – anyone is welcome, there are at least 5 of us already so it should be heaps of fun – sign up with anna –!

21st March 2013 :

we found some awesome supporters in Barcelona and have brought the costs down a lot – the new ticket price is 25 euros! which frankly is a bargain considering the range of activities, lovely people and dancing music you’ll be enjoying over the weekend. buy them here – if you like the project and want to help out then buy the ticket now!! it’s really helpful for the organisers!  (tickets are transferable too!)

hemos encontrado apoyo de colegas en barcelona y los gastos han bajado bastante – ahora el nuevo precio de entrada es 25 euros! que es, francamente, una oportunidad cuando consideras las actividades, gente genial, y musica para bailar que vas a disfrutar durante el fin de semana. comprar aqui – si te gusta el proyecto y quieres apoyarnos comprar ahora! ayuda muco a los organisadores. (y las entradas pueden estar cambiados entre personas)

11th March 2013 :

we now have 40 people on the list for this special celebration… including theloveof it, djs, permaculture experts, activists, sustainability gurus, dome builders, musical instrument makers and players, bands that you may have heard on radio3.  the furious sessions are coming along as are big improv group, and bcnmes, aviv from his alternative cccb and all sorts of other interesting and brilliant people.  let’s get this on!

10th March 2013 :

Met Walter from Musica Zero CO2 and it’s not 100% yet, but as long as he has the dates free he’s bringing the full whack – pedal power, batteries, soundsystem, lights and a pair of solar panels too so maybe you don’t all have to pedal. Last year we were completely solar and pedal powered – let’s see if we can do it again….

6th March 2013 :

Me and Austin had a super meeting last night – planning the structures we’re going to build, writing lists about what’s going to happen in the different spaces, starting to think about feeding everyone… plans are for a much more collaborative effort this year, but more on that soon!

Huge thanks to Kerry Badger who’s stepped up to take on the role of bar manager after her awesome job back in 2011
