Now an unofficial holiday amongst psychonauts celebrated worldwide, one of the biggest Bicycle Day parties takes place in San Francisco. Presented by Euphonic Conceptions & Legion of Bloom, San Francisco’s Bicycle Day Celebration is not only a concert, but a petri dish of creativity, inspiration, and sensory stimulation. World renowned visionary artists Alex and Allyson Grey have played a large role in this annual celebration, integrating their philosophies, live painting, and personal stories into the event. Their presence not only fills the room with a tangible energy, but also creates the aesthetic of this celebration.

Shpongle is a downtempo/ambient electronic project from the United Kingdom. Their sound has sampled Eastern ethnic instruments and Western contemporary synthesizer-based psychedelic music. Shpongle's music is heavily influenced by psychedelic experiences and frequently makes use of sonic textures that approximate psychedelic states as well as vocal samples relating to consciousness expansion, hallucinations, and altered states of awareness. When asked to describe Shpongle's music, Posford has responded that it is «like nothing you've ever heard before.»

The Floozies are producer/guitarist Matt Hill and drummer Mark Hill. These two brothers are bringing their fresh approach to electronic music and live performance to venues and festivals all over the country. The duo's combination of cutting edge electronic production and party rocking funk energizes crowds and turns venues into epic dance parties. «The undisputed kings of electro funk!» -Adam Deitch

Alex Grey was born in Columbus, Ohio on November 29, 1953 (Sagittarius), the middle child of a gentle middle-class couple. His father was a graphic designer and encouraged his son's drawing ability. Young Alex would collect insects and dead animals from the suburban neighborhood and bury them in the back yard. The themes of death and transcendence weave throughout his artworks, from the earliest drawings to later performances, paintings and sculpture. He went to the Columbus College of Art and Design for two years (1971-73), then dropped out and painted billboards in Ohio for a year (73-74). Grey then attended the Boston Museum School for one year, to study with the conceptual artist, Jay Jaroslav.

At the Boston Museum School he met his wife, the artist, Allyson Rymland Grey. During this period he had a series of entheogenically induced mystical experiences that transformed his agnostic existentialism to a radical transcendentalism. The Grey couple would trip together on LSD. Alex then spent five years at Harvard Medical School working in the Anatomy department studying the body and preparing cadavers for dissection. He also worked at Harvard's department of Mind/Body Medicine with Dr. Herbert Benson and Dr. Joan Borysenko conducting scientific experiments to investigate subtle healing energies. Alex's anatomical training prepared him for painting the Sacred Mirrors and for doing medical illustration. When doctors saw his Sacred Mirrors, they asked him to do illustration work. The rest is history…
