What’s Up Desert Hearts Family - for our party in San Diego this Friday, we’d like to experiment with something we’ve been thinking about for a while: a no-camera policy for the duration of the night.
During our recent trip to Berlin, we were fascinated with clubs having a strict no-camera policy and the impact it made. Berlin is known to have one of the best clubbing cultures in the world, and it’s common practice for a sticker to be placed over your phone’s camera when entering. The purpose of this is to create the best safe place possible for dancers to let their freak flags fly without having to worry about their movements being recorded. When we stop to take pictures or post to social media in the middle of a party, we have to consciously take ourselves out of the moment to do so. Speaking from purely anecdotal experience, one of the best things our Desert Hearts Festival has going for it is the lack of cell or wifi service on the reservation. While people are still free to take photos at the festival, having no service dramatically increases the amount of time spent simply vibing with those around you.
And that’s always been one of our main goals: to create the ultimate party vibe for losing yourself to the music or having a meaningful conversation with a stranger or best friend. So this Friday, do us a solid and take all your pictures before or after you come to Spin. Be present and don’t be afraid to lose yourself in what’s happening around you… you just might like it. 😉
House. Techno. Love.
We Are All Desert Hearts. 💗
