"Through the trance-dance experience, hopfully people become more sensitive and aware of themselves, their surroundings, the crossroads of humanity,
and the needs of the Planet. With that awareness comes understanding and compassion, That is the need of the hour and the true Goa Spirit."—Goa Gil

The 9th annual Autumn Equinox gathering for the Northwest with Goa Gil and Ariane is upon us!

Goa Gil & Ariane, Autumn Equinox - Flyer by Ryan Carter  

Greetings Friends!

A gathering of friends and family, Goa Gil brings the twenty-four hour trance-dance experience here for the ninth year. No Equinox would be complete without this gathering of beautiful souls in the forest. Sunset community opening ceremony followed by Ariane's ethno-tribal mix begins the journey and continues through the weekend for a trance–dance experience with legendary DJ GOA GIL!

Amazing artworks and installations provided by local visionaries. Please feel free to bring art you would like to contribute.

Goa Gil and Ariane ~

Gil has shaped the trance sound for decades. Playing twenty-four hours of continuous music from every far reach of the world, he induces a prolonged trance–dance experience.
The music he plays is intensely psychedelic, and much like a freight train plowing over a tomato, will leave your psyche in a juicy, globby mess!

Gil's wife, Ariane, will bless us with a grounding, tribal set of music before Gil to open the night.
Melding truly tribal rhythms with new ideas and production, her music always takes you to a powerful place.


Tidewater Falls, Oregon
This celebration will be held on beautiful private land 13.5 miles east of Waldport, Oregon on highway 34, approximately three hours from Portland.
The land has a pond, fresh spring water, tons of camping space and room to wander.

Tidewater Falls is in the serene woods of the Pacific Northwest, on some of the most beautiful land the state has to offer.
Acres and acres of lush private forest land, complete with a pond, rolling hills, and misty sunrises that sparkle in front of your eyes.


Some reminders and suggestions:

· Come prepared to pack out garbage and leave no trace.
· NO DOGS or pets are allowed at the event. This includes vehicles and the camping area. There is a $150 fee for any dogs that surreptitiously show up.
