PRESTIGIOUS FESTIVAL RETURNS TO THE U.S. FOR FOURTH ANNUAL JAMBOREE

The fourth Terrastock festival of arts and music took place over the weekend of November 3rd - 5th, 2000. The venue chosen was the historic Showbox, located in downtown Seattle, Washington, USA. Like all past Terrastocks, this event wais open to ALL AGES.

Terrastock IV built on the continuing tradition and success of the first three Terrastock festivals, held in Providence, RI (1997), San Francisco CA (1998), and in London, England (1999).

The three-day event was conceived in a similar spirit of "peace, love and cooperation" in order to celebrate the music championed by the long running magazine, The Ptolemaic Terrascope. For T4, we were pleased to be associated with our good friend and associate Chris Porter, from the Seattle-based arts and events company One Reel. Together we hope we made Terrastock IV one of the most outstanding of what has already been a very special series of events.

Terrastock is not an indie rock record company feeding frenzy. Bands and artists were there solely at the personal invitation of the organizers. The one thing they all had in common was the fact that each has at some time been adulated in The Ptolemaic Terrascope. It's simply about the music and that indefinable "spirit of Terrastock". If you were fortunate enough to be at any of the Terrastocks, you'll already know what we mean.

Below you'll find a list of bands who performed, many of who travelled over vast continents and oceans under their own steam to be with us.
