The chapter concludes with an extensive documentation of Earthdream, participants in which held independent formulas for intercultural reconciliation and a nuclear free future. The chapter provides a detailed exposition of RTS as it morphed around the world. The chapter documents the emergence and exodus of UK sound systems, with particular attention to the original spinners, Spiral Tribe, who would be instrumental to the “freetekno” movement and the emergence of world tekno-travellers. Adopting the Dreamspell calendar, variously committed to , and self-identifying as members of a “global tribe”, a compassionate trance-formation has invested in an obscure revitalizing movement the contours of which are outlined here. Part activism, theatre, and carnival, in there transpired an outback adventure which would become a conduit for this celebratory and compassionate mobilization: While inspired by the European tekno sound systems, these vehicles for the performance of postcolonizing desires would rally the disaffected to new front lines. And when it did break, and rave culture became widely mediated, regulated and commodified, the truth wasn’t difficult to register: It uses real pictures to make the game look extremely realistic.
Young people knew they were onto something big, an ascension was about to take place, the truth would be revealed. What is an intentional party? But while this represents something of the official story of rave–an impotent ascension, a dystopian subcultural comedown, a failed rave-olution –it is not the whole story. Drawing on extensive ethnographic, netographic and documentary research, Technomad details the post-rave trajectory through various local sites and global scenes, with each chapter attending to unique developments in the techno counterculture: For, from the beginning, and indeed both before the beginning and subsequent to the rave explosion, a techno-underground has subsisted, multiplied and evolved, mutating and surviving in a transnational network of techno-tribal formations. Written in an accessible style, this cultural history of hitherto uncharted territory will be of interest to students of cultural, performance, music, media, and new social movement studies, along with enthusiasts of dance culture and popular politics. And with its performance associated with a cornucopia of activist demands, EDMC would acquire an intentional character by which dance music events, whether spatial reclaiming, fund raising or direct interventions, would enable tactical responses to the troubled present. The Gathering of the Tribes in San Francisco was instrumental to this development.
Recently, I have been developing my first HD x texture pack for the game. The book offers an original nuanced theory of resistance to assist understanding of these developments. Emerging dilms mids London, RTS carried a carnivalesque sensibility that, as an intentional reclamation of public space, had flourished since the sixties yet was re-ignited in the wake of neo-liberalism and the War on Terror, whose ecological and humanitarian after-shocks would stimulate activists to tactically re-appropriate the carnival in campaigns to reclaim the future.

Attending to sound system culture, electro-humanitarianism, secret sonic societies, teknivals and other gatherings of the techno-tribes, intentional parties, revitalisation movements and counter-colonial interventions, Technomad investigates how the dance party has been harnessed for transgressive and progressive ends, for manifold freedoms. The author may have abandoned it, or it may have outlived its usefulness.
Attending to dance music organizations and events as tactical interv entions, this chapter flms mobilizations ranging from specified reactions to filmx legislation and ordinance encountered around the world, to direct action campaigns in which the dance party becomes a tactic in the struggle for diverse concerns beyond EDMC. In particular, allying with aggrieved indigenes, from the Mad Max road warrior whose transgression knew no boundaries, to an eco-warrior familiar with cultural and physical boundaries, local crews and events were vehicles and catalysts for dancing up country.
As popular music writer Simon Reynolds would argue, if rave evolved into a “self-conscious science” of intensifying Ecstasy’s sensations then the rapid comedown from this chemical nirvana precipitated a psycho-cultural dark-side evincing a “loss of a collective sense of going somewhere”. Enthusing sonic squatters and techno-circuses fusing dub-reggae, techno, hardcore, psychedelic, hip hop and minimalist traditions, the Spirals would influence transgressive and proactive techno-cultures around the globe.
Optimistic regarding the progressive potential of outdoor techno-trance gatherings, this well-documented study traces the complex genealogy of a global nomadic ‘technoccult’, with emphasis on Europe, North-America and Australia. The dance vibe constitutes the carnival which, resurgent as rave, has proliferated in the contemporary.
The chapter concludes lkfe an extensive documentation of Earthdream, participants in which held independent llife for intercultural reconciliation and a nuclear free future.
In addressing these global formations, Technomad attends to the fleeting-permanence of contemporary counterculture, offering a cultural history of a wide range of techno-formations whose mobility–spatial, subjective and virtual–is enabled by new digital, cyber and telecommunications technologies.

But while the comprehension of techno-tribalism is partially enabled via Maffesolian sociology, since there may be agonistic causal triggers to the vibe, this approach remains insufficient in itself.
In the late s, sounding out the growing desire for post-settler legitimacy, responding to a “calling” to countrythese new sonic mobs were gravity machines for the critical ecological, and revisionist sensitivities prevailing within an alternative youth population.
While Spiral Tribe and other techno-tribes illustrate piecemeal pagan commitments, throughout the s and into the next decade, psychedelic trance or psytrance would accelerate the interfacing of technology, ecology, and spirituality.
In particular it charts the trajectories of Australian sound initiatives Ohms not Bombs and the Labrats. More than the study of a musical movement or genre, Technomad offers an alternate history of cultural politics since the s, from hippies and Acid Tests through the sound systems and ‘vibe-tribes’ of the s and beyond Young people knew they were onto something big, an ascension was about to take place, the truth would be revealed.
Drawing on extensive ethnographic, netographic and documentary research, Technomad details the post-rave trajectory through various local sites and global scenes, with each chapter attending to unique developments in the techno counterculture: Revisiting the themes of counterculture and resistance via documentary research and ethnography, the book attends to a shifting complex of genres, sites and events in the global proliferation of EDMC.
In London they would become infused with anarchist, punk, traveller and from the late eighties, techno-rave, coordinates. As the new protestival template proliferated globally with the assistance of the Internet and mobile communications technologies, direct action became fleeting yet prolific, a popular “future-presence”.
Impacted by a DiY activist sensibility, appropriating new and alternative technologies, and operating mobile events, these techno-pioneers were implicated in what Pete Strong calls a “groovement”, a dance movement for legitimate presence and belonging.
