> ...of pirate woodstock
> a festival...
> ...whose infrastructure is crowdfounded
> ...where all financial requirements are openly visibly for everyone
> ...where there is no clear line inbetween musicians and visitors, but
> where everyone shall bring their cc0-ed [0] music, share it over public
> wifi, remix with other and publish it
> ...where everyone gets the chance by a random number generator to promote
> their music (or art) in a way that ze finds suitable (pirate radio, stage
> w/ streaming, remixed video, ...) and gets rewarded by a
> Flattr-like-mechanism
> ...which does not take place in a single country, but several; none (or at
> least: not all) centrally organized if possible; by applying to the rules
> stated above, you get on the stream channels of others and are allowed to
> call yourself part of the event
> ...that is as pirate as possible without getting way to illegal
> because
> ...we don't need huge corporations to organize huge festivals
> ...we don't need intermediaries that take profits in an amount that is
> hardly eligible
> ...we don't need anyone to tell who is worthy and who isn't depending on
> current mainstream traits, which are nothing but remixes as all art [1]
> without someone else playing a similar piece of music [2]
> ...we want a world where you get a chance as an artist and are not
> constantly told that your income problem is primary piracy (instead of
> obscurity [3]), are often exploited (even if you're on the chart list [4])
> and are told you are producing "content" [5]
> ...we want a world that is united in the cyberspace [6] and one is not
> intended to be excluded by economical means
> ...we need a counterculture instead of just reacting to news and speaking
> about how we want the world
> Yes, I know this is not politics, but activism.
> Yes, I know there are initiatives at a small level, which are hardly
> noticed.
> Yes, I know this is probably beyond our possibilities and you'll call me
> an utopian fool.
> But if we are to follow the way down, I'm afraid we loose the fun.
> The fun that is necessary to bear with politics, not to forget why we are
> here [7] and not getting just another movement that becomes crusted very
> soon.
