Experience the bliss of our precious moments celebrating the flowering of summer and our culture.


HEADLINERS

Taking you on an extended mindride:

the RICHIE HAWTIN experience
Windsor, Canada


Minus is Richie's latest project, inspired by theories of subtraction, advancement and experimentation. These concepts are also driving forces in one of his rare and innovative dj explorations. Returning to make it count in what will be one of only a few 98 U.S. appearances. Capturing all of our hearts and minds, get ready to let the man and his music take control.

STEVE "SILK" HURLEY
Chicago

Original groove master of Chicago house music responsible for classics like "Jack Your Body". A dj/producer/remixer/songwriter who has worked with the likes of Prince, New Order, Madonna, Inner City, Janet & Michael Jackson, Paula Abdul, Inner City and the list goes on. From and beyond the era of "jack" with a sound and style smooth as "silk" this rare performance promises to be a legendary feature from a legendary man.

Kanzleramt U.S. Tour:

The final stop of the tour. Heiko, who is resident at the legendary Omen club, and Johannes are two of the more prolific techno artists to come out of the Frankfurt area in a long time. And Slip leads the pack in our neck of the woods. Expect everything from hard, twisted techno to subtle, deep techouse.

SAVAGE AURAL HOTBED (live)
Minneapolis

Feeding our oldest and most primal form of self expression - the dance - in a most primal way. An experience in tribal industrial performance art that'll work you into a frenzy. One man's junk is another man's treasure - one man's pain is another man's pleasure - one man's symphony is another man's savage aural hotbed!

FIERCE
London

The No U-Turn posse is known to rip up dancefloors wherever they go with a sound that is both scarily apocalyptic and funky as sex. As one of the most consistently exciting stables, the No U-Turn artists represent! This is the soundtrack of life in the future.

LAURENT HO
Paris

Uncivilized World, Epiteth, SixSixtySix, Ingler, Industrial Strength
Beneath a beautiful city lies a destructive wall of sound - the sound of L.Ho. Known around the world for the quality hardcore he produces and djing ability. A man who loves his machines and the noises they make.

NATURAL BORN SUCKERS featuring Daria Black
Montreal

Drop Bass Network
First time U.S. performance from a new DBN producer. Described as the Spiral Tribe sound, it is heavy and psychedelic. Prepare to be drawn into the speakers by the hypnotic style. But don't feel too secure, it could eat you alive at any moment.

KEVIN YOST
small-town, PA.

Guidance, i! Records, Nervous, Yellow
His talent as a producer is renowned worldwide, but Kevin is also a respected up and coming dj. In his first Midwest appearance he is sure to please with a blend of hypnotic jazz influenced deep house.

NICK NICE
Madison

Midwest O.G. who has dj'ed from Moscow to Switzerland to a residency at Queen in Paris. His return to Even Furthur will take you on a trip with a unique blend of deep house, tribal and techno.

PABLO GARGANO
London

Eve Records, Metropolitan Music, Rabbit City
Pablo has produced all of the anonymously released Eve records - a label that has earned the respect of the world dj fraternity. As a dj Pablo delivers a unique mix of industrial and European trance. First U.S. appearance.

DAN EFEX
Chicago

For years a favorite that never disappoints. Well known for his smooth mixing skills and ability to take you on a journey. Dan is largely responsible for trance music's favored status in the Midwest.

DREW YOUNG
Milwaukee

UK44, Forever Forward, Amnesia
Another Midwestern trance aficionado. Drew represents the live performance side of things that put trance where it is in our area. Expect his music aggressive yet beautiful.

TOP SPEED
Indianapolis

This scratch o' matic was recently featured in hip hop's Source magazine. His cut n' flex battle dj performances have been generating talk and attention everywhere he goes. Witness.

TJ RICHTER
Outer Space

This man/dolphin was seen naked under a cookie monster suit at Teenage Wasteland. Like a hopped-up funnycar on a drag strip TJ's performance art is quite an ear & eye full. On saturday night he will lead the ceremony to light the Burning Man setting the night and himself on fire!

THEME CAMP and SOUND SYSTEM VILLAGE:

    New to Even Furthur this year is the creation of Theme Camps in the same area as the DIY Sound System Village. In an effort to create a more surreal vision of our community, we are calling out for expression to you who are creative. Pristine river front campsites along the main road of our campground will be reserved for individuals or groups who want to create unique themed areas for themselves to live in and others to visit. These sites will also be home to the do it yourself sound systems Even Furthur has become known for.

    Do you have an idea for a camp or a small sound system and some dj's/performers? Leave a message on the info line 414-777-3998 or email us at dropbass@execpc.com and we will call you to discuss it. There is a limited number of these sites available so call to reserve your spot early!

    This event is about our love of freedom and our belief in the unique power of every individual. Even if you don't want to create a theme camp we encourage you to let your freak flag fly and sport costumes, erect architecture, create artwork, invent games, play drums/other instruments, or contribute performance art. Lets make Even Furthur all it can be and more...

    Vendors will also be housed in the Theme Camp Village. If you are interested in vending please call 414-777-3998 or email us at dropbass@execpc.com to register. You must register in order to vend anything, no exceptions. Sorry, no outside food/beverage concessions will be allowed.

    As always we are looking for past Even Furthur video footage...if you have any or know someone who does please call 414-777-3998 or email us at dropbass@execpc.com. Your help is greatly appreciated and you will be rewarded.

FURTHUR GUIDELINES:

      Being that this is the fifth Furthur event you should understand these by now. But in the event that you don't, we ask you follow a few simple guidelines.

    Even Furthur takes place on a permitted rural setting for 72 straight hours from noon Friday May 29th until Monday June 1st. Don't forget that this year the Monday of the festival is not the Memorial Day holiday so you will need to take off from work or call in sick!

    All official sound stages are weather protected and the main stage is in a warehouse so the event goes rain or shine! Come prepared to deal with the possibility of bad weather - you know it's going to rain, it always does.

    Our location as always will remain a secret until Thursday May 28th to not draw any unnecessary attention to our event and to help build the excitement and anticipation for the weekend itself. On Thursday, May 28th you can call any of the three main info lines for directions and information or you can access directions, information, and a map from this page. The support lines should have directions from each specific area and the web site will have directions from all areas.

    Unlike past events you will not have to travel further to get Furthur. This event is located equidistant from Milwaukee, Chicago, and Madison. Travel time is less than two hours from each city.

    Basic on site concessions including hot and cold food and beverages will be available all weekend for reasonable prices. No outside concessions of this type will be allowed. Bring enough to eat and drink for your entire stay at Even Furthur. Drinkable running water will be available on site. Clean bathrooms (please keep them that way!) with flush toilets will be available.

    Even Furthur is an alcohol and drug free event! You should know that this is going to be an intense time without any outside ingestions. This scene is about music and us together - if you don't believe it just ask us! We don't want to be babysitters and we certainly are not trying to stop anyone from having fun. We want an environment that is fun yet safe for all. Sales of alcohol, controlled substances and nitrous oxide are illegal, unwise and unwelcome! Period.

    To avoid potential problems between Furthur participants and people in the small rural communities that surround the site, there will only be one in and out privilege per car over the course of the event. Realize where you are at and be on good behavior to insure successful relations with the communities who are hosting our stay. Try a smile, a please and a thank you - kindness never hurt anyone. Show respect for people and their property. A few bad apples can ruin it for everyone - rotten fruit sucks. It's up to each of us to present our culture positively. With good vibes we have a future.

    Come prepared to camp and cope in an outdoor setting. Things to keep you happy include a sleeping bag, tent, food, plenty to drink, a backpack, extra clothes, flashlights, grills, bug spray, sun block, drums, toys, first aid and love, love, and more love to share with everyone.

    Do not bring pets, fireworks, weapons, bad attitudes or firewood (we will supply main fires).

    Security/ parking attendants / gate personnel will all be identifiable by event staff shirts and jackets. These people are there to make the event run smoothly and more importantly to help you. If you have any questions or need assistance feel free to ask any one of them.

      Even Furthur would like to thank three very important people who's visions and efforts were instrumental in bringing us together to gather...

Tom Crawford

    His WMSE college radio show "back in the day" was the one place to hear the latest and best in electronic music. This show played a significant role in the creation of Drop Bass Network. The dedication to the music Tom has demonstrated makes him a true pioneer of the Milwaukee dance music scene.

Nick Nice

    His passion for the music has been educating everyone who will listen since his very early days at Madison's Cardinal bar to his recent establishment of Nice Musique. This influence, combined with his legendary one off events makes Nick a true pioneer of the Wisconsin dance music scene.

Woody McBride

    His contributions to the Minneapolis underground led to a magical heyday that had tribes traveling back in 94 & 95. Woody was instrumental in creating the wonderful thing that is Furthur. As an artist, his musical compositions and Communique family of record labels has put the Midwest on the electronic music map. Woody is a true pioneer of the Midwest dance music scene.

 

    Respect to all three of these men and to all of you for making our culture happen - in the past and for the future.Your magic is in your energy, the magic is in the music. See you on the other side yet another time...
