Unfortunately most of the people that go these days don't go because of the party or the music they go to consume chemical substances or just to show up on social media, psychedelic (more than most other styles like prog) will probably never be comercial music but i'm pretty sure it has already lost culture.
I mean i started going to raves when i was a kid and yeah i saw some bad stuff but i would see children, dogs, families, old persons that you would normally see at house on the couch... but more recently i see less children and animals and more teens (17-21) some older that only go there to get high start fights steal cars and do drugs (and i'm not talking about blazing some joints, stuff much worse...), and this has happened in the less known raves but also in the most known ones....

i was in Ozora , i played in the chillout stage and at the mainstage ...
it is a nice big festival for the psychedelic culture ,
you might be right about the majority of the crowd but not all ,
since a few years these kind of events integrate more & more areas with other things to do than "get high in the dance-floor" ,
i see you are from PT , i guess you know the Boom Festival , this is a good example of a dance party turned into something completely different,

anyway, drugs are everywhere , even your doctor take cocaine for his daily job ... ;)

the social system push the kids into drugs and hardcore behavior on week.ends , so that they can go back on monday morning to be a good soldier ...

i played also a lot of small gatherings , in this places people are looking for different experience ... these are the places where you can find the original vibe of what you talking about ....

@freedomnation :
ozora never reached 50k , i think the biggest edition was 45k , but yeah ... now is less ... there is more interesting festivals around , also more in the east , before Hungary entered in the Schengen Area , a lot of the east alternative scene was going to Ozora ... now less ... things have changed ...

It seems like every act of rebellion after the mid 20th century was taken comercial. So is a situatiotion today. Why would anyone go to rave to to start f/steal cars?

(Probably because they do that everywhere and on drugs they even worse) Honestly i don't know but it happened on crystal matrix anniversary when crazy astronaut was playing 3 or 4 cars where completely ransacked and 1 guy had to go by ambulance to the hospital cause he was completely beat up by a group of 10/20.
And yes dnb parties in portugal are also full of fights and thefts even the own security guards won't do nothing if they see it. But it all depends on the entry price since most of these guys that go to start trouble won't pay a 50 euro entry ticket.

It's rather awkard to see see thousands introverts jumping around. But a great feeling for all those people and have been to some great raves.

@freedomnation

I have been going for 6 consecutive years and it has changed my life completely. Still my favorite psy festival by far and I have been to a few.

While it is true that many of the psychedelic festivals (especially in Northern Germany) have become really negative in terms of vibe and crowd, at Ozora you can still make some of the most meaningful connections anywhere. Real people.

Compare it to what I see and hear of - say - Tomorrowland, and you really get a drift of which festivals are created by the same gangs behind the influential mainstream forces (sponsors are always a good hint), and which festivals still do their best to hold true to compassion, exploration of the mind and mutual respect. (Last I heard, the ticket price for Tomorrowland is 600 € vs. 175 € for Ozora).

If you live in Europe and it calls you - even if you have to travel a thousand miles - do it. It's really worth it. One day it may go down as well because it has become bigger, maybe bigger than it should be for its aim.

Because of that I can recommend going in 2018 especially. Why? Because it's a Boom year, and the scene will split into East and West, some going to Portugal, the others going to Ozora, Hungary.

We were possibly 40K people last year (a no-Boom year) so this year will be less crowded and therefore more familiar and intimate.

Oh here I go again.^^

I will write extensively about my Ozora experiences on my channel, but have already included lots of impressions on my IntroduceYourself Post, if you want to dive in a little further at this time.

As for substances - that decision is up to any single visitor, nobody else.

If one is out looking to get messed up and narrow their awareness I would hope they go some place else, like the bar around the corner, or a large football game. If on the other hand one is interested in expanding consciousness with shamanic tools and learning about themselves, Ozora is a great place for it.

I have met many people there who do not use any kinds of substances at all, some meditate, others just dance themselves into trance. But the scene is getting bigger overall and the kids coming onto the scene need some good role models, like anywhere else in society.

If you make it out to Hungary, let me know, and we'll go explore. I always love to make connections with people on the floor because those connections tend to last, and I speak from experience. No matter the distance in countries of origin or differences in worldview.

Much love

Nice one
