When Antaris founder Uwe Siebert got some good old friends from Berlin, Munich and the Ruhr area together for an open-air party in 1993, no one could have guessed how powerful the project would be. Uwe had a circus tent set up on a meadow near Rüdersdorf and decorated it with blacklight paintings. All around, he and his supporters hung Indian fairy lights.
For 20 marks, the guests could celebrate from Saturday evening to Sunday noon and were treated to a bombastic laser show, which was beyond all dimensions at the time and required 60 liters of cooling water per minute. DJs for Goa trance were hard to find in Germany, but with Scotty, Antaro and Sangeet the line-up was impressive. In the middle of the night a group of shepherds in slouch hats, cloaks and shepherd’s crooks came by – it didn’t take long for the rhythm to get them dancing too.
