Let me walk you through this. You see that over there? That’s a gate to another dimension. You are currently in the nightmare plane, come join us on a plane where your mind can be free. This is a psychedelic safe space, a harassment free zone where you can let go of the form society forces you to hold and be totally free. The you beyond boundaries, beyond the limitations of others perceptions. This is something for your mind, your body and your soul. When you feel this freedom, when you touch what you may have thought was untouchable, you will quickly realize that you are too far gone and there is no way back.

This is an eternal concept, we didn’t invent this, and the people who may think they did didn’t either, this is our cultural heritage from a time before history. It has taken many forms from dancing around the fire at a coming of age ceremony, imbibing soma, to losing it on the dance floor of a parking garage to Larry Levan, or in some secret warehouse road under the actual road to the feverish sound of Ron Hardy, or climbing up those stairs to Heaven and seeing Miss Heaven 1 and Miss Heaven 2 jacking on top of the speakers to Ken Collier. We recognize where this music comes from, its original Black, Trans, Queer and Latinx roots, and the serious library of advanced technological thoughts that came from their ecstatic music. Detroit Techno was inevitable when you think about it.

This is our generation picking up those threads and making our own new fabric of the space time continuum. This is our generation returning to the source.

--

Return to the Source 2020 is an organic evolution of the original concept, yet carefully improved. Our weekend at the Tangent includes 4 parties for the price of one weekend wristband, with an outdoor area containing a Zendo and harm reduction tent, food trucks, and a greater outdoor sound system. Once the music starts at No Way Back on Sunday night, it won't end until Tuesday morning — 31 hours of continuous music. A weekend wristband will allow you to experience all this with no interruptions.
