The Starwood Festival 2005 — Sherman, NY

July 19-24, 2005

[Skip to Photos, but CAUTION AT WORK, many are risqué.]

This was the 25th annual Starwood Festival. From their web site:

Imagine a vacation in another realm, where many realities meet. A place where Scientists sit with Shamans and Druids dance with Deadheads. Where African drums jam with bluegrass fiddles, and Celtic harps combine with psychedelic synthesizers. Where political activism meets Earth spirituality, where theatre and life meld, where days are spent in exploration of inner and outer space, and nights blaze with laser lights and bonfire flames.

Now in its third decade, this six-day camping event is the high point of Summer for hundreds of people. Over 150 workshops, plus performances, 15 concerts, films, merchants, and the biggest bonfire you've ever seen! The reasonable price, fine camping facilities, and private site (with a pool and hot tub), complete the formula for an unforgettable outdoor experience that will inspire and activate you for months afterward.

There's more to write, but I simply don't have time right now. Have a look at my photos.
