Psychedelia-An Ancient Culture, A Modern Way Of Life


Psychedelic trance is a way of life, a way of living that teaches us the beauty of the world and our relationship to it. Trance parties for us are about the connection of the conscious whole through the expression of dance and only the true intentions of the organizers and musicians allow this to take place.



Until the sun rises to burn your eyes by revealing the dystopian reality of the twisted world you have created for us, we dance fiercely with our brothers and sisters in celebration of our life, of our culture and of the values we believe in. Which are:



Peace, Love, Freedom, Tolerance, Unity, Harmony, Responsibility, Respect


Psychedelic culture in its full complexity and range, out of a colorful history that spans 3500 years, emerges a philosophy and way of life that is as dazzling and rich as the psychedelic experience itself. Psychedelia is a living underground culture, engaged in constant dialogue with its mainstream counterpart. Psychedelia's creative, visionary presence in art, rock music and pop culture is thoroughly examined, highlighting many unique and at times unknown works and traditions, from William Blake to Philip K Dick, from Eden Ahbez to Shpongle, from Haight-Ashbury to the beaches of Goa.



WHY WOLF? (simbols,logo)



Very easy to explain. The power of the wolf brings forth instinct, intelligence, appetite for freedom, and awareness of the importance of social connections. Wolf power or spirit animals point to an appetite for freedom and living life powerfully, guided by instincts. When a wolf manifests its presence as a guide in your life, it could be a call to live your life more freely, to bring the intensity of passion in your everyday endeavors.



Bold, powerful, lonely, mistrustful, predator, quiet, dangerous, fast as lightning, careful, family-oriented, social, loyal, conqueror, consistent, free, wild, and beautiful ... a wolf.



In his novel “The last Europeans” Dragos Kalajic wrote about the symbolism of the wolf: “The wolf embodies a complex and diverse human force well, it’s most noticeable manifestation is its innate need for freedom as a basic life condition… It is impossible to tame a wolf, make it dependent and obedient, unlike its distant relative – the dog. It is impossible because the wolf is much smarter. A wolf’s strong sense of self regard and pride, which comes from its freedom, is unrivaled among animals and a vast majority of people. A wolf doesn’t put up with any compromises as it is going against its nature. I would say that in that wolf’s trait lies the true cause of hatred enjoyed by those that envy other people's love for freedom and nobility, because they do not possess it.”



However, it is undeniable that the strongest bond between a man and a wolf can be found in Slavic mythology, where the wolf was a totem animal and was considered a master of the forest, animals and birds. An interesting fact is that the wolf is considered to be the mythical ancestor of the Serbian people, which is why, come as no surprise, the personal name Vuk (Wolf) is actually a quite frequent name among the Serbs. The symbolism is clear and conveys a strong, unconstrained character, in need of freedom, rebellious, unyielding, resourceful and with superior intelligence.



History has taught us that the wolf is a dangerous, but, also, a noble animal, at the same time a friend and a beast, the one that chases us and the one that protects us. A lot of contradictions, you might say! By all appearances, it is impossible to tame a wolf, make it dependent and obedient. In that sense, the wolf can really seem like a moody loner. If we take a deeper look, psychologically speaking, the wolf symbolizes someone who just has high standards and does not tolerate betrayal.



In other words, the wolf reminds us that all of us have an animal side, and there is no shame in showing it and your deepest emotions. Only to the chosen ones, of course, because, after all, the wolf feels the safest in his own pack!



The core concept of the festival is to be free, at least for a moment. Do what feels good and live like you want to. Relax for a moment, forget about everything, and enjoy the nature and music, make new friends, design and create. That’s why we invite all of you, free spirited people, to come and join our wolf pack. Our festival doors are open to all adventurers, artists, entertainers, musicians and players, woodworkers and swimmers, grillers and smokers… The highlight of the beauty of life is when we’re all together, sharing positive energy and knowledge, it is then that the pack becomes a tribe and W.O.L.F. the meaning of existence.



Apart from the rich musical program on the main stage, camping in an oak forest, swimming in the river Karas and a number of accompanying events, the festival supports all kinds of artists and tourism, so, you can have fun in the art arena or at one of the tourist destinations in the vicinity.

Maps / Location

Location: River Karas / Straza / Vrsac



 Natural monument “Straza” is located in Vojvodina, in south-east Banat, near the village Straza. Administratively speaking it falls within the municipality of Vrsac. It is situated on the right side river bank of Karas, along the road Vrsac-Bela Crkva. The total area of protected natural resource is 67.61 ha. The distance of this natural resource is 19km from Vrsac and 111km from Belgrade.

 The primary value of the protected natural resource is the preserved oak forest, ash trees and hornbeam surrounded by the remains of the valley meadows and steppe pastures. The forest has so far preserved the characteristics of original natural lowlands that once dominated this part of the floodplain of the river Karas. The vegetation in this protected natural resource is very lush and diverse due to extremely favorable natural conditions. The floor of trees and shrubs consists of species typical of the oak forests, ash trees and hornbeam while the ground flora has a lot of interesting, rare and protected species, such as orchids - narrow-leaved helleborine and the White helleborine (Cephalanthera longifolia and Cephalanthera alba), Leucojum aestivum, commonly called summer snowflake and others. Outside the forests, on the meadow fields there are a number of species, among which is the endangered swamp orchid (Orchis laxiflora subsp. Elegans). Thanks to its preserved natural habitats the fauna of this preserved plane is very diverse. Nevertheless, the European ground squirrel (Citellus citellus) especially stands out. Aside from being endangered species it is found on the red list of critically endangered species, the European ground squirrel is very important for the survival of other species, such as, for example, saker falcon (Falco cherrug), who’s predominant food is the ground squirrel.

 On the right bank of the river Karas a mill complex was built, whose oldest preserved buildings are dating from the late 19th century. The existing buildings are mostly built after 1925, together with the mill in Kikinda, which dates from 1860, they are considered the oldest active cultural monuments of the industrial character on the territory of Vojvodina.

 Within the protected natural resources there is a park, which is primarily intended for rest and recreation of the workers and other visitors. The park is surrounded by a pond and a water stream of river Karas, which aside from visual effect are suitable for creating a highly pleasant microclimate.

 Park area complements facilities such as tool shed, swimmers’ cabin, bowling alley and accompanying facilities for recreational purposes.

 Consequently, protected natural resource “Straza“, represents a distinctive natural area in Banat, which provides an opportunity for the development of scientific research, tourism, sports and recreational activities.
