When it comes to festivals I’m a total camping fiend. Hotels are for the weak! But I had never camped at a rave, so I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect at Nocturnal Wonderland. Luckily, being with the Facemelt Crew, it was pretty much impossible to have a bad time.
The roster was [PM] Lalaby, (Ayo?) Boo, DMT, and me, Alpha Jack. It was truly humbling to be around this much talent all weekend. Lalaby is literally one of the founding members of the gloving community and continues to throw fire in his sleep, Boo throws that (Ayo?) flow like its nobody’s business, and DMT was the legit performance artist among us, drawing crowds at every turn.
On Friday we threw down fat light show pits at every stage we hit, all over the venue. So much love and bonding among the glovers, it was beautiful to watch. On Saturday and Sunday security turned up the heat and started taking gloves, so we shifted focus toward the orbiters, who came out real strong, too.
Below we’ve got some full event videos of DMT, Lalaby, and Boo throwing down, then at the bottom there’s a sick little triple team between Team [e] Blitzen, Subtle and me. Enjoy the Facemeltage!
The orbiters came out and spun hard. We had the bigger names like DMT, Orion, Mallo, Sapphire and a bunch more galaxy creators.
World's first gloving journalist. Give me a light show and I'll make you famous :P
