History: 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 in Louisville, Kentucky on June 19th -22nd, 2008.
Each 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 we love their music and they love the way we do things. It’s simply about the music, and about the whole Terrastock spirit. If you’ve ever been to a Terrastock, you’ll know what we mean…
