It was held on private land near orange, CA for a few years. 2011 was amazing, truly life changing. Bassnectar was headlining a crowd of 3-4k people. As thy finished up, they come up front with everyone who played that night and asked everyone to spend 5 minutes and clean. Having never been to an event like this I was shocked to see everyone start picking up trash. It was beautiful. 15 minutes later I was sitting in the middle of a perfectly clean field looking at the stars.
The next year however, and I cannot confirm this is actually what happened or why they moved(just what I saw and heard) the festival went full Coachella. Beer cans and cig butts on the ground. The hug booth was now inhabited by drunken frat bros. It was a mess. Not surprisingly, they were not able to return after 2012. They have been changing location since, plagued by undercover busts last year in Temecula forcing them to move far north this year.
I will wreck you verbally on the playa if you MOOP near me. Be warned
TL;DR- don't MOOP!!! They can and will take away the permit. It will suck having to find a new home for this event.

I yelled FUCK! and just burst out laughing. The camp doing the fishing started laughing too. They offered a beer and a hug.
In my defense the dollar was covered in dust and I am extremely near sighted. Think Ms. Magoo...I really just thought it was a scrap of paper.
