embodying our personal and collective exploration.  When we rest in our Essence, 
spontaneous creative expression naturally arises effortlessly. No prior art 
making experience is necessary. The only requirement is an open heart! Themes 
will include relationships with self, other humans and nature. (CEUs Available

A Dance Music Parade and Festival, and the next evolution of Love in America. 

Begins at 2nd & Market
Ends at the Civic Center Plaza
www.sflovefest.org

We are proud to announce that San Francisco will once again be home to 
America's largest dance music celebration. The event is being produced by the same 
core team that threw the Loveparade San Francisco events in 2004 and '05. This 
free Electronic Music Parade and Festival will not bear the name Loveparade 
this year, as the Loveparade Berlin organization did not renew any of their 
worldwide licenses not already under contract so they could focus on their own 
event this July, the first Love Parade Berlin in 2 years. We wish them all the 
best! Not content to let the incredible success of the American counterpart 
event of the last 2 years go quiet, we bring you a new event:

Saturday, September 23rd is taking shape to be an epic day in American dance 
culture, as we come together for the largest free dance music event of it’s 
kind in the country. Once again we'll be hosting the city’s, country's and 
world's best Electronic Music DJ's and Producers with a free parade down the heart 
of San Francisco, beginning at 2nd and Market, with the end of the parade 
route culminating into a festival by donation at the Civic Center Plaza. We will 
be taking over City Hall, and hosting a 10,000 capacity official after party at 
the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium, produced by Skills and Spundae. And, as all 
festivals do, there will be more parties; pre-parties, after parties, and 
after-after parties, this side of WMC!

A stellar list of talent here to make you move and groove to the shared 
beauty of a universal vibe, including: Paul Oakenfold, Massive Attack, Grandmaster 
Flash, Bad Boy Bill, Christopher Lawrence, Rennie Pilgrem, Lee Burridge, 
Junkie XL (Live), DJ Dan, Kaskade, Lee Coombs, Miss Kitten, Donald Glaude, Richard 
Vission, DJ Rap, Darude, DJ Shadow, D:Fuse, Hyper, Dieselboy, Andy Moor, 
Aphrodite, Dyloot, John Howard, Steve Porter, Luke Fair, Penta, General Midi, 
Simply Jeff, Deekline & Wizard, Jahbo, Nick Thayer, and much much more to be 
announced! 

We’re also excited to announce the first round of LoveFest floats chosen, 
with more to come including floats from Spundae / Skills / Beatport, Opel / Qool 
/ SF Station, Supperclub / IN Grooves, Tantra, Space Cowboys, Sound A.M. / 
Omnis Recordings / Sound of Mind, Anon Salon, Bay Area Drum n Bass Collective, 
Vau de Vire Society, Project Alma, Nutbass Records, Disfunktion Crew / Seismic / 
Mighty, Pleasure Zone, Evil Breaks / Strategik, LiveLife Culture, Thursday 
Night Productions, The Purgatory Cruiser / Yellow #5 & Ooze System, San 
TRANCEcisco / Dream GenuineUs , KCRH Radio / BayRaves.com / Zapatistas / DubStar, and 
more to be announced! 

Last year over 75,000 revelers danced through the streets as 30+ floats of 
every genre of dance music traversed through the streets of San Francisco. This 
year we look forward to taking it to the next level together in an event truly 
infused with love, music and purpose.

Sat. Sept. 30  8 pm              Arianna Huffington "On Becoming Fearless!" - 
Sonoma

We are honored to host Arianna Huffington for her only North Bay appearance 
this fall! Arianna Huffington is one of the most articulate spokespersons for 
progressive politics today. In her eleven books and widely-read blog,  The 
Huffington Post, she tells it like it is --- with humor, savvy, and sheer 
brilliance!

Arianna's latest book, "On Becoming Fearless....In Love, Work, and Life," is 
a road map for achieving fearlessness in every aspect of life, a 
straight-to-the-point manifesto on how to be bold, how to say what needs to be said and do 
what needs to be done in order to find the freedom to love, lead, and succeed. 
Vanity Fair Magazine (October '06 issue) chose Arianna Huffington as one of 
100 major figures of the "New Establishment."
