Got any plans for the armageddon? No, we're serious. Whatever your thoughts may be on the ancient Mayan prediction that the world will end on December 21st, 2012, one thing is for certain – the celestial occurences during the Winter Solstice are going to be an experience none of us can be certain of – but our ancestors, as well as current experts, are convinced is a major turning point in our existence. So why not throw one hell of a party to celebrate it?
The Great Convergence festival is a brand new event, designed specifically to capture what could potentially be among the most pivotal moments in human history. Set to be held on the Giza Plateau as the clock strikes midnight on December 21st 2012, the three-day fest will celebrate the dawning of a new era as a 26 thousand year cycle comes to pass.
Beats Antique, Apparat, Random Rab, Govinda and Bluetech are just a few of the performers at this once-in-a-lifetime festival experience, running Dec. 20-22 at the great pyramids in Egypt. If you're going to party on what could be the end of the world, why not do it in one of the most awe-inspiring and majestically mysterious places in the world?
For the fully immersive festivalgoing adventurer, the journey continues with a five-day Nile River cruise where attendees will explore some of the world's most ancient temples. "We are proud to present a selection of the top electronic music producers and DJ's from the west coast's music scene for your dancing and listening pleasure throughout our eight day adventure," the festival website reads.
A statement on the event from the organizers: "This Winter Solstice, December 20-22, 2012 we will be gathering from across the globe for a once in a lifetime experience at the Great Pyramids to intentionally celebrate this potent, transformational time in our lives.
As we converge at this powerful place at this particular time, we will be acknowledging and participating in a great astronomical alignment, drawing upon the lessons and wisdom from our past and inspiring us in our creations for the future.
This particular winter solstice not only denotes the completion and renewal of our yearly orbit around the Sun but also culminates in a prophesized galactic alignment that happens only once every 26,000 years.This alignment is what many ancient cultures, like the Mayans were pointing towards with the completion of their calendars.
Some consider this alignment to be the marker of the beginning of a new era or a new age. Some even consider this to be a transition into a new paradigm and an evolutionary turning point for the Earth and humanity.
One thing that is certain is that something is happening and we will be generating a lot of energy in our coming together.
Our intention is to consciously align with these universal forces and offer the energy we generate towards this great turning point in history. In this convergence we call upon renewal and inspiration as we unify in our Dance as our offering.
We invite you to come create this magical journey with us."
