Free Optics @ Freedom Festival 2019

Dear friends, today we present another one of the 5 teams of decorators for the Freedom Festival and they are  Free Optics!
Since autumn 2011 Free Optics are creating decorations.
They use art to transform their drives; to consolidate it into material objects, to process it and to express themselves visually. They are using colors and paint in combination with fabrics to express visions and emotions. Their intention with the installations and decorations, is to create unique spaces, worlds, and intense atmospheres.

For Free Optics, psychedelic decor defines itself as an expressive surface, over which they deal with the ethereal and metaphysical level of all. They wish to give a place to dreams visions and feelings, in which one can refer to something that is not immediately tangible or recognizable from everyday life consciousness. They realize this wish by creating objects, processing them and expressing themselves visually.

Free Optics will be another team of decorators who will provide us psychedelic visions in our Danceforest!

The History of Freedom Festival

In the late 90’s, a group of enthusiastic friends and activists of psychedelic culture decided to start creating some private and intimate parties for themselves and likeminded friends. They aimed to design parties that would meet their collective tastes and fantasies. They were amateur yet passionate collectors of trance music, and felt that the organizations of the time, while bearing the task of satisfying and teaching the new generation, did not bring in the projects that were at the forefront of the music scene.

Thus, the first DMTeam event was born in July of 2001, creating a milestone in the transition from purely Goa Trance to Psytrance fully embracing the eclectic international panorama. They began creating events with some of the biggest poster headliners, such as: GMS, Talamasca, Parasense, Skazi, Raja Ram & Astrix, among others.

Coming from the same organization, and after several trips to Thailand and Goa, Carlos Baptista and Nuno de Sá created their base of action at their home in Anjuna, Goa. That’s when Crystal Matrix came along. With the will and need to grow and evolve, Crystal Matrix Records was born as a Clothing Label and Record Label. It has gained a great success internationally, with varied compilations and albums excitedly edited with artists like Parasense, Shift, Suria, Gms, Talamasca, Astrix & Space Tribe among others. Eventually finding itself in the TOP 3 of the best-selling labels in Japan between 2003 and 2006.

After a number of striking events that went down in history, the desire to do something bigger and better was growing, and in 2005 a partnership was created between Crystal Matrix Rec. And Spun Rec. This was the first Freedom Festival; filled with the best headlines of the current Trance scene. Held in Campo Maior in the Alentejo, with more than 7,000 people attending from over 40 countries, a result that surpassed any initial expectation or dream.

Keeping the spirit of working as a team, a second edition was made in 2007, this time in Elvas, in partnership with Hommega Records. This site outlined, and gave the Freedom Festival its identity, as it is now known. And so, after 12 long years of striking and scintillating events, the need to look for a fresher venue, to offer better conditions to an increasingly demanding and selective audience has become apparent. As well as the desire to explore a new concept, travel even further and spread the wings of freedom. With that in mind, the Freedom Festival makes its 7th edition in the S.Gião National Park, in Oliveira do Hospital.


WoW Deco @ Freedom Festival

In 2005 we took the first step and gave birth to the first ever Freedom Festival. We then delivered the sacred task of creating a dynamic dancefloor to the Tribe of Frog, currently known as WOW (Worlds Of Wonder). We faced some difficulties with the elements that year, as it was the first time we were building something so large in an open field, to last standing for six days.

Somehow we passed the test, and now fourteen years later and with much more experience, we have decided to work together once again with this crew on this new challenge! It is with great satisfaction and affection that we present the return of our brothers from WOW Deco, to imbue the dance floor with passionate creative magic.

At this moment they are commencing to plan and prepare pieces uniquely designed for use at Freedom Festival 2019. We are excited to meet the creatures of the forest, for whoever knows the fantastic work of this group of artists, knows that they will transform our woodland dance space into an enchanted and enveloping forest realm!
