A few weeks ago, it came to our attention that there was another festival scheduled for this same weekend. The event was called "Forbidden Kingdom," and was designed to replace WEMF with an old-school style festival based on PLUR and great dance music. Needless to say, that's right up our alley.
FORBIDDEN KINGDOM/CAMP HARDCORE
VENUE: 100 Marshall Road, Midland, ON.
GATES OPEN: Noon on Friday
MUSIC STARTS: 9 PM on Friday (officially), whenever we get excited (unofficially)
BYOB: Yes (no glass) ANY UNSEALED ALCOHOL/DRINKS WILL BE REFUSED/DUMPED BY SECURITY AT THE GATE.......Buy plastic or cans (sorry guys, not our rules)
MEDICS AND SECURITY: Yes, as always.
PRICE: $80 admission only. $90 for shuttle transportation.
The venue is a sprawling 53 acre hobby farm with tons of room for camping, parking, and raving. It is largely an open field but it is bordered by forest which will also be accessible.
YOU MAY NOW DRIVE TO THE VENUE! If you purchased a transportation ticket and would now like to drive, please contact us (info AT Nocturnal Commissions DOT com) and we will issue you a refund for the difference.
THERE WILL THEREFORE BE FEWER SHUTTLES - with reduced demand for transportation, we are compressing the shuttles from four to two. I know this will be tough for some, so if that impacts your ability to attend, PLEASE let me (DJ Dynamic) know and I will work with you to find a solution. The new shuttle schedule is:
Friday at 2:30 PM
Friday at 7 PM
If you purchased the 8 PM bus and can't make the 7 PM, please get in touch with us as above. If you are the one person who purchased the Saturday bus transfer, same goes for you. Transportation tickets must be purchased by Thursday evening.
YOU MAY NOT HAVE CAMPFIRES *Yes this is the opposite of what it said earlier. We apologize for the mixup.* There will still be a communal fire pit.
THERE ARE MORE VENDORS. In addition to our vegan food and body painting, we will now also have additional food vendors (meat this time) and a water vendor.
THERE IS AN ENTIRE ADDITIONAL STAGE FULL OF FUCKING AWESOME MUSIC. You are now getting another festival brought to your camp site for no additional cost. The Forbidden Kingdom stage features legends like Deko-Ze, Mike Conradi, Lady Bass, Marty McFly, Switchbass, and many more incredible acts. This will be in addition to our full lineup of hardcore and DnB goodness, which will be listed below in its entirety (at last! Hooray!). This is quite precisely two festivals for the price of one.
WORKSHOPS. We will have a small workshop area for people to teach community workshops, meditate, play music, or just hang out. There will be various fun events held there through the weekend as well.
THERE WILL BE NO CHICKENS. We're very sorry to announce that the chickens and roosters you may or may not have been expecting will not be able to attend.
KANDIE KINGDOM. We are now Kandie Kingdom. You may adventure time at will.
We recommend that you bring the following to ensure a positive, safe, and not at all sketchy camping experience:
Sunscreen (and sunglasses/hat)
Sweaters/hoodies/jackets (gets cold at night)
Plastic bag to keep your trash
Any beer/liquor you will require (NOT in glass; cans are fine)
Allergy pills if necessary
And now, your COMPLETE(ish) Kandie Kingdom lineup! Music kicks off at 9 PM and will continue with few breaks (though the sound will be turned down during sleeping time) until we head out on Sunday. These DJs represent many of the top hardcore and DnB DJs in Ontario, with special guests from across the continent for a true North American rave experience!
Da Lollipop Kids (USA)
Digital Geist (USA)
No Left Turn (USA) b2b Saiyan
Scartat & Jeph
We realize this is a lot to take in. Believe me, it's been a lot to pull off in a matter of days with just a week to go to the festival. But we're very proud of our efforts and very excited to be working together with another group of ravers to create one truly unified rave festival. With your support and participation, this is going to be an incredible first festival.
Questions or concerns? Please don't hesitate to ask us, here or through info@NocturnalCommissions.com
PLUR, ROAR, and SERIOUSLYGUISNOCHICKENS in full effect!!
Happy rave! WE WILL SEE YOU THERE!!!!!
