Your Complete Guide to Terrastock 7 (Louisville, KY)

To date, there have been six Terrastock festivals. The first took place in Providence, Rhode Island, in April of 1997; the second in San Francisco, California, in April of 1998; the third in London, England, in August of 1999; the fourth in Seattle, Washington, in November of 2000, the fifth in Boston, Massachusetts, in October of 2002, and the Sixth back in Providence again in April, 2006. Terrastock 7 is scheduled to take place here in Louisville, Kentucky on June 19th -22nd, 2008!!!

frogEach Terrastock Festival builds on the successes of the previous ones. The events are conceived in a spirit of peace, love and co-operation purely in order to celebrate the music championed by the The Ptolemaic Terrascope magazine and the Terrascope Online web community.

Terrastock is not an indie-rock A&R feeding frenzy. Bands and artists are there at the personal invitation of the organisers because they love their music and they love the way the organizers do things. It’s simply about the music, and about the whole Terrastock spirit.

Tickets

As of May 1st 125 full festival passes remain ($85), so get yours asap. There are also a limited amount of day passes for $25 bucks, but you need to get them before the fest, as they will not be sold on the day of (and probably will be sold out anyway).

You can get tickets here.

Venue

The Mellwood Arts Center is a refurbished industrial plant turned creative environment, housing over 180 artist studios, retail shops and more.

The map below shows all three spaces. The market (event room 1, Terrastock Stage 3) is 10,000+ sq. ft. The smaller event room (Stage #2) is 4500 sq ft., and the lawn where Stage 1 is based is ridiculous – probably 20,000 sq ft in total.

  1. A clue to who’s in “Sleeping Pill”….

    The spanish translation of “I have it”….

    s’all I’m saying.

  2. Full festival passes are selling really fast. In fact, they’re almost gone.

    There are still day passes at Ear X-tacy and some with us online.
