The Earthdance story begins in 1996, when London-based musician and event producer Chris Deckker (Medicine Drum, Return To The Source) had a vision – in the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid in Giza, Egypt – of a synchronized, multi-location psytrance dance party. October 4th, 1997 – The first Earthdance Planetary Dance Party for Peace materialized – with 22 locations in 18 countries, in support of Tibet. In 1999, Earthdance moved its base to San Francisco, aligned its mission with the annual United Nations Peace Day, and began partnering with other international peace events, organizations, and companies. In 2001, the Earthdance International non-profit organization was formed to coordinate the annual charity festival. And in 2003, the Earthdance Global for-profit company was formed by Reavis Daniel Moore, Matthew Marshall, and Sandra Hay to develop year-round Earthdance projects, and provide the primary support for the non-profit organization and festival.
From its early psy-rave roots, Earthdance has grown to become one of the largest globally synchronized music and dance events, having been held in over 1,000 locations in 80 countries. In 2020, the 24th annual Earthdance Global Peace Party will include numerous public events, countless private parties, and high social media activity across multiple platforms.
