Hey guys! This years Pantasia Festival (typically held at Joshua Tree/USA) is being converted into an online virtual festival this year due to Covid19. It will be taking place this Friday/Saturday (pacific standard time). Event details and schedule can be found on the Facebook event page below.
It’s free for anyone and everyone. There will be live concerts streaming, workshops, raffles, etc. I’ve copy/pasted the event details below.
Hello everyone and welcome to Pantasia 2020 DIGITAL EDITION!!!
This is a FREE EVENT open to the public far and wide around the world so spread the word, invite your friends and family, and let’s make this the biggest handpan gathering in history!
In an effort to support the global social distancing movement, we have organized 24 hours of live streaming handpan goodness. Performers all around the world have teamed up to share from our living room to yours. In addition to having every performer booked for this year’s original Pantasia line up, we have added friends, some who you make recognize from years past, to bring you two back to back 12 hour days packed with live streamed workshops, concerts, Q&A’s, and a raffle! (details below)
The directions for the gathering are simple! No tickets are necessary, no handpan is necessary, just need a good internet connection and some good speakers to listen through! The schedule is listed below, simply click on the name/page hyperlinked during that hour and the artist will be live streaming through their page!
At 4 PM on Saturday during Stevan’s live stream we are raffling off a bunch of goodies! You could win a one of a kind PANTASIA case from Namana Bags, Handpan Pillows, Art from some of our attendees, and other handpan accessories will be listed soon! The grand prize items we are giving away are a Hamsa Handpans made by event organizer Stevan Morris AND a Tacta Handpans made by Rafael D’Arco a huge contributor year after year, and dear friend! That’s right you have TWO CHANCES TO WIN A HANDPAN! Raffle e-tickets are a $20 donation each, or you will get a lucky SEVEN tickets for every $100 donation! You will be assigned numbers for each ticket purchased and we will use an online random number generator to pull our winners. The raffle pulling will happen LIVE on SATURDAY APRIL 11TH 4PM PST. To donate towards the raffle simply send funds through paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org or click this link paypal.me/PantasiaGathering
--------------This fundraiser is to help cover the huge losses incurred by the events cancellation. This is helping us to ensure every single attendee who purchased a ticket to this years event gets a FULL REFUND! Money raised will also be going towards paying all of our performers who have had their entire performance season, including Pantasia, cancelled due to social distancing. -----------------
