SubLunar (Squam)

Freespace Soundsystem’s annual membership-based summer gathering is happening again in 2018.

Once more, a diverse community of friends from the lower mainland hailing from several subcultures – The Conscious Dance, Psytrance, and Electronic Music scenes – are gathering together to organize SubLunar.

Memberships are now available!

The Freespace Soundsystem presents:

🌙 🌓 🌙 🌓 🌙 SubLunar 🌓 🌙 🌓 🌙 🌓

A three-night Community, Music and Art festival……

SubLunar refers to the world below the moon, the earthly realm below the heavenly one. In antiquity, the celestial spheres beyond the moon were considered static and unchanging, while the earth (the sublunary sphere) inhabited by humans and nature, was seen as dynamic and changeable.

SubLunar is a celebration of the Earth and Nature, of Embodiment, Physicality, and Immanence!


Once again, there will be two soundstages at SubLunar, Terra and Luna, featuring a wide variety of the Vancouver area’s amazing talent for your dancing pleasure!

Both stages will play from dusk to dawn.

🌓Terra Stage🌓

Organized this year in collaboration with Shadow Puppet Productions, Terra will play host to a wide variety of Earthy, Bassy, Funky, and Melodic musical genres including Dubstep, Drum and Bass, House and Techno, World-beat and Downtempo.

DJ applications are mostly closed, but if you want to submit a mix for future consideration, or a dance/flow-art application, go here:


SubLunar will be located in a beautiful forest setting in mainland BC about 2 hours north of Vancouver. Exact directions will be e-mailed only to paid members a few days before the event.

The Freespace Soundsystem recognizes the location as illegally occupied, unceded land that belongs to the Coast Salish people.


The SubLunar gathering is the yearly membership gathering for the Freespace Soundsystem. We are not for profit, and community driven. The gathering is members-only, and only members will receive directions to the location!

Once again we are capped at 199 memberships as part of our land permission.

Memberships cost:
$75 for regular membership.
$45 for low income membership. (Please only buy one if you require the subsidy. This is based on the honor system.)
$10 for kids. (17 and under. All minors must be accompanied by an adult guardian or bring a letter of permission.)

Memberships are available at:

Becoming a member grants you access to SubLunar. It is all you need to receive directions to, and attend the gathering, you need not make any other purchases. Membership also grants you voting rights for the Freespace Soundsystem Society at next year’s AGM.


SubLunar is organized by Freespace members, for Freespace members. No organizers are paid for any work, and all members are expected to contribute 4 hours of their time during the weekend to make the gathering happen. Everyone must sign up for one shift at the entrance when arriving.

We are also looking for more people to join the Setup Crew by e-mailing Setup volunteers get their memberships subsidized and don’t have to pay anything to attend the gathering.


Learning from one another is one of the most important parts of SubLunar.

All members are encouraged to give a workshop on a subject dear to their hearts: Flow arts, Philosophy, Political Ideas, Teachable Skills, or any number of other subjects are welcome topics. Workshops will run during the day on Saturday and Sunday.

Contact RaChel Kat for info or submit workshop applications here:


SubLunar will have a communal kitchen providing simple, but tasty vegan snacks, soups, curries, pasta, and more at specified mealtimes throughout the day on Saturday and Sunday. The kitchen is available for all members, at no cost.

We’re hoping to build on last year’s effort, and this year’s kitchen will be better than ever! Please bring some food for yourselves for the weekend though. Our kitchen is ceremonial, designed to provide a beautiful shared experience, but for now it is still supplementary.

Contact Sienna St. Laurent for more!


The gathering will feature an opening circle on Friday night to set the intention for the weekend, and a closing circle on Monday just after noon to ground ourselves before returning into the world.

Communal, co-created, and participatory rituals are a great way to reflect upon, and reinforce the concepts and ideas that our gathering inspires.

Also, expect other “Grown-up Summer Camp” type activities during the gathering to help have fun, open up to fellow participants, and strengthen community bonds.


Our community takes consent VERY seriously. All interactions between attendees (sexual, or non-sexual) are to be based on communication, consent, and respect.

If you’re unsure about an interaction or unsure if you have consent, please remember to ask first. Remember, only an ongoing positive, enthusiastic response means Yes!


Unfortunately, because of a number of safety concerns, dogs and other animals are NOT welcome at SubLunar. There are only two exceptions to this rule:

A) Legally certified Guide Dogs and Service Dogs. This does not apply to therapy and emotional support animals.

B) Dogs that are personally vouched for by a coordinator, and that the entire team of coordinators voted unanimously to allow at the gathering


Liberating spaces within the cracks of society, The Freespace Soundsystem transforms spaces into places – Temporary Autonomous Zones for participants to explore!

We organize indoor events in the urban core, and underground, renegade events in our Yurt throughout Vancouver. We have also committed to building this yearly gathering over the foreseeable future.
