Benefit Event for Legendary Party Promoter
Fraser Clark

 

Thursday 13th November 2008
Starting at 10pm and finishing at 6am.
Heaven Night Club
, Villiers Street, London WC2N 6NG, UK

Dubbed the Timothy Leary of the e-generation, founding Zippie and grandfather of Luminopolis, Fraser Clark, has recently been diagnosed with inoperable liver cancer and his time within this reality zone is possibly drawing to a close. A special one-off Megatripolis event will be held as a fundraiser for his specialist medical care.

In the late 1980’s Fraser the creator and editor of the Encyclopaedia Psychedelica, (EPi) a London based magazine, which achieved international recognition & wherein he developed the concept and coined the phrase Zippie, with the idea of saving the planet, encouraging a consciousness craze and to embrace technology.

Evolution followed in 1990 and was the flagship magazine of the rave culture and gained wide recognition both here in the Uk and America, thus paving the way for his next move into dance culture.

Megatripolis was founded in 1993 and was one of the first people to recognise the synergy arising from combining New Age ideology with Rave culture. Creating the first UK in-door festival where people were exposed to cross-cultural ideas and experiences.

Megatripolis was a pioneer of the “Parallel University”, the concept of offering live talks by philosophers, scientists and activists (along with supporting literature) to club-goers. Visits from speakers such as Allen Ginsberg, Terence McKenna, George Monbiot, Howard Marks and Ram Dass were common.

Megatripolis spawned a thousand imitators and is perhaps Fraser Clarks most enduring legacy.

In the late 1990’s, Fraser teamed up with the genius alternative theatre writer / actor / director Ken Campbell to create The Warp Experience, 24 hour stage play by Niel Oram, within a 24 hour trance party.
 
The Warp Experience was based at The Drome – the cavernous tunnels under London Bridge Station now known as seOne. After it
finished, a number of the production crew went on to create The Synergy Project  – now known as Luminopolis.

1:00 – 1:30        A miracle on the dance floor?
Everyone who wishes will gather on the main Heaven dance floor to Love bomb the man who started it all.

Love is the only answer, and this could be a hugely powerful application of applied love our love will flow to Fraser as deep and holy healing, surround and overwhelm him!  He will absorb it and allow it to work within him, bathing all his cells in golden light.  As he sends the love back out to us, we will visualise the flow of golden energy radiating out, healing, carrying all dis-ease with it, transforming discomfort into joy and worries into peace, activating a beautiful Circle of Love that will flow out through London, the planet’s Heart Chakra. This is our time.  Fraser will no doubt ascend to Higher Heaven at this point, disappearing in a lightning flash! (TBC)

3rd room . . . .

Techno Silence Suite

A Celebration & investigation of the life, work and ideas of Fraser Clark, a giant of the Counter Culture and Shamanarchic Rave Scene. We will talk, discuss, network, meditate, pray, and even dare to be silent.

Is Fraser now being proved right in predicting (and advocating) the extinction of Dinosaur culture?

Did the old hippy/raver/tribal elder get it right?!  As Western Capitalism flounders, will the New Shamanarchic Paradigm come to the fore and a more loving, harmonious, inner-travelling and non-competitive world come into being in our lifetime?  How exactly will this scenario play out?  

 

Panellists

Mark Heley, Kate Magic and other thinkers plus (health allowing)
Fraser himself.  

MEGATRIP FOREVER TRIBUTE: Friends, colleagues and allies of Fraser will talk about his personal influence on their lives and ideas. Audience contribution encouraged. [The MEMORY WALL will be created here, so please bring images, flyers etc from past events]
