It’s that time of the year again! Time to strip down to your gold knickers, don furry boots, and celebrate love with 100,000 or so ravers, hippies, and hipsters. The Love Fest returns to San Francisco, Saturday October 3rd. Renamed Lovevolution, newbies can expect a freak show of colors, costumes, lovers, haters and more. Parade regulars can expect the same amazingly fun times. Parade and Festival Grounds
This year the Om label is taking the back seat letting our new born imprint, Child’s Play take the lime light. Joining forces with premiere production team Flavor Group, the two teams will be involved in producing the Solid Gold Jacuzzi Float. Winner of the “Best Float” for so many years we can’t even keep count, we promise you a wild time full of gold pasties, glitter, beautiful people and lots of surprises.
Presenters Scion and AMP Energry Drink will be joining in the fun this year. Pick up a free Scion or AMP download card at the float to download full DJ sets by the artist playing on the Solid Gold Jacuzzi Float.
Although the festival ends at 8pm, the party at Mezzanine will just be getting started. Child’s Play, Flavor Group, AMP Energry Drinks, and Scion will all be working together to present GOLDPLAY (the official Solid Gold Jacuzzi Afterparty) featuring LA Riots, DJ Heather, Amp Live Feat. Gold Dust’s Trackademicks & K Flay, DJ Fluid, and more. House heads, hipsters, clubbers, and all around Loving people will take over Mezzanine for the most unique Love Fest after parties this year.
Last month we brought you a free Om:Cast from one of our favorite disco house bands, Crazy P. This month we have something really special for you. A mix like this is extremely rare as this artist is very protective of his live sets and almost never allows anyone to record him. It is with utmost pleasure that we present Om:Cast002 featuring Om’s OG artist and one of the greatest DJs in the world, Mark Farina.
This mix is very special to us being that it was recorded at Om’s 15 Year Anniversaryevent in the very city that gave birth to Om by one of the original artist of Om. Hope you guys enjoy!
Keep checking back for a new podcast each month. We have lots of surprises in store.
You can now purchase the shirts here from the Om store and get a FREE J-Boogie x Exact Science Magic Mix CD. J-Boogie provides the soundtrack with “The Bay and Beyond” a mix CD of hip-hop, soul, funk and electro representing underground artists from Northern Cali to New York. The CD is included with T-Shirt purchase on Om-Records.com featuring artists like Zion I, Raashan Ahmad, Deuce Eclipse, Dudley Perkins, Keelay & Zaire, Camp Lo, Breakestra and more.
