Join the world's largest simultaneous music and dance event at Earthdance Vancouver

One of the Earthdance organizers SobeyI spoke with one of the Earthdance Vancouver organizers, Sobey, about what makes this year's Earthdance different than in previous years. This year to from morning to night with three different events. During the day, Earthdance will be taking place at Prospect Point in Stanley Park, then people will be riding bikes for Earthdance around the city, then culminating with events at W2 Storyeum in Gastown. The evening will include a dinner, conference and discussion time, and ending with DJ's and Musicians from around the world playing until the late hours.

I interviewed Sobey about Earthdance Vancouver and his involvement with the Festival over the past 7 years. It's clear from our conversation that Earthdance requires a lot of organization and passion to make everything come together on the day of the event. 

The web plays a big part in making Earthdance connected together through online communities and streaming videos of Earthdance events around the world.

Listen to Earthdance organizer Sobey's interview:
