Message from Hasfest HQ
HASFEST 5 is fast approaching, so here is a brief rundown of planned events and details for all you good folks

Hasfest will begin on Friday night with the opening party, for the past few years this has been quite a bangin affair , however this year we are taking a different route. Opening the weekend with a sonic earth ritual based around bass, beats and fire, expect heavy slabs of dub , dark ambient textures, blessed out beats, outlaw space cadets and of course the unexpected. The party will be held in the grove from 8.00pm onwards ....

Stalls....a fine array of quality shiny goods for sale
Workshops.... Some fantastic workshops this year including :- journeying, belly dance and as many pop up workshops we can cram in 
Goddess and blessings tree for your libations, blessings, honouring and wishes.
Following the awesome success of the Sonic Jam of last year, we will, on Saturday afternoon be staging another Sonic Jam so bring ya instruments
The mission is to put the Rock and Roll into Hasfest, everyone is invited to come together with drums instruments or vice to create a massive noise. Last years Sonic Jam was described as a dark tribal Joy Division- which is cool. Some amps and guitars are available so please come along and let's get it on 

A Belly dance performance by Hipsteria, Blackart Belles and Terra von Dare.
8pm onwards Burning Man with Fireside drumming and dancing.
For the highlight of the weekend the primal fusion of Rhythm Flame and togetherness ...bring rattles drums didgeridoos etc
