saturday, 3.00 a.m.:
at the meeting point cops were stopping everybody. a big bunch of cars and
camions were still in 2 places. other cops were stopping everyone who
wanted to go were a pair of sound systems were ready to start. the place
was the same of last year. and last year the local government was warried
cos teknival was inside a private property. and even if party people has
lived together with the locals for more than a week in peace, something
wrong happened...like somebody stole cars to get back home.
they were ready to welcome us. in the morning cops were saying they wouldnt
let us make the party in that zone. someone was around the area to look for
ready, go... we began to move to a new place, someone telephoned to someone
other saying where to go...
in half an hour we were there. in 2 hours police was there and they said
they would kick us out if we didnt want to move.
another hour passed, and someone told us there was another place... police
told that their only purpose was to deny the party in the area... ok, let's
move to another area.
and here the fun - the pain - the monkey to begin... for 6 hours a long
long long tile of cars and weird cyber coaches were moving slowly around
toscana moving towards lazio. we thought police was taking us to a place
were we could make the party but it wasnt this, some french ppl was going
there and they didnt know exactly were the place was... 6 hours of travel,
we were all tired, someone like me wasnt sleeping form friday morning and
someone else from the day before...it also rained.
at the end we joined the place: a lake near viterbo, in the middle of
italy... a little paradise, with beach, the water of the lake was clean. we
were all happy.
and I saw a local cop asking to a pair of raver: "Ehi, ... well,... who are
you?" cos they couldnt believe all that, we were so many!
saturday 6.00 p.m.:
the first sound system started and party begun. in few hours the place
became a kinda interzone, everything became unreal, cars were like a
tetris, a puzzle, somewhere the space was bigger and there was a
soundsystem playing music. during all night people was arriving, other
sound systems, other people, other weirdos... music everywhere kickin ass,
people dancing everywhere, the zone was like a blade runner landscape... I
have been to other teknivals and I have never seen something big like this
sound conspiracy, metek, tomahawk, and listen... this time Acid Drops were
there... and everyone was wandering "who are these?"... their music was too
big, also other tribes were astonished... they have grown up so well, those
guys have been ace.
in the morning rain again. police began to say we could stay there till
monday, now its monday and I dunno what it's happening there. weather has
been ugly, we had to leave near midday cos we had 600 km to do to go back
and someone like me wasnt sleeping from so many hours...
my long day started on friday morning... I went to sleep on sunday night, I
was there for 2 days party, and what I found was a long travel with cops
and a juice of party lasted one night. then I had to leave and go back to
hope somebody will go on reporting what's happening there...
