This coud be the year Root Becomes a household name. I suspect that there will be less sound camps this year. Shit, if only Root and a few others come and Root goes big as usual.....Could be an epic vibe this year..

Actually, from what I'm seeing and hearing the other large scale sound camps are all coming in force this year. I saw one big newcomer (Basshenge) retreat, but it sounds like they'll either be camping with or joining forces with Osiris.

It's a shame Root Society commercialized their name though, makes it all seem like a branding ploy.

that issue has been resolved, when we are in public as opposed to the playa we will be flying under a different name.

After lurking here for a long long time one of the things I wanted to see more than anything was Simon on stage at Root Society. Then the year I get to go, there is no Root Society. It's all a plot I tell you.

I really can not wait to finally see this. And I feel slightly goofy about this making me so happy. lol

I say, grab as much happiness as you can. You need something to get you through the dark times.

I don't care what he does up there. There is a picture of him standing there looking out over the crowd and there is this expression of absolute peace on his face. One of those perfect moments where you can tell this person is in the happiest place for himself and is absolutely satisfied with life. It doesn't matter if you are a dj, a janitor, an asshole cook, a spectator, an artist, or an Indian chief. It's that perfectness of place and time in that picture that I want to feel.

"Just, all he does and aint exactly" are not nice words to use when describing someone. I've seen Simon in his natural habitat and both he and it kicks ass. I'm glad root society will be back.
