Alex Weber wants YOU! for Party Team Extreme

Do you have what it takes… to be a mem­ber of PARTY TEAM EXTREME?

I’ve been kick­ing this idea around for a while to make a list of the biggest/best/awesomest par­ties and fes­ti­vals from all around the world, and sys­tem­at­i­cally attend­ing them. You’ll find the cur­rent list at the bot­tom of this post, and I encour­age you to sug­gest oth­ers!

So what about the PARTY TEAM? Well, if you’re the jet-setting, adventure-seeking, pretty-bitchin-awesome type of per­son, I invite you to come along for this rad jour­ney. You don’t have to come for all of the events, but I’d love to assem­ble a crew who can descend on any fes­ti­val whether it’s Mardi Gras, Car­ni­val, or La Tomatina and GO HARD. Like I said before: DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES?

If you’re read­ing this, you just might…

If you want to learn more, the list of events is below. I’m arrang­ing them in a rough order of how I’m think­ing of attend­ing them, start­ing with US/Canada events and mov­ing far­ther abroad. Any­thing past the first two or three is not in any sort of order other than how soon I found them.

A Few Considerations Regarding The List

There are cer­tain fes­ti­vals that I’m exclud­ing here because they didn’t appeal to me, I’ve already done them, or they are so well-known that it’s almost not worth men­tion­ing. Among these are St. Patrick’s Day in Ire­land or NYC and Hal­loween in any large US city.

There are so many music/arts fes­ti­vals in the US and other coun­tries that I couldn’t pos­si­bly attend all of them. I’m tar­get­ing the biggest music fes­ti­vals, and ones that cater towards my taste in music (elec­tronic dance music).

I selected most of these events because they seemed fun or weird. Unique expe­ri­ences FTW..

There are also a few that I excluded because I’ve already been to them! The list of “Attended” fes­ti­vals is at the bot­tom of this list.

Awesomely Attended Festivals List

PS- Party Team Extreme abbre­vi­ates as PTX. There is def­i­nitely a way to make that into an insignia and stamp it all over every­thing. Con­sider that when you’re think­ing about join­ing.

Update (April 2012): I’ve attended Bay To Break­ers — it was amaz­ing. I also have my ticket for Burn­ing Man this year and am plan­ning to attend!
