Terrastock West

Hello, and welcome to TERRASTOCK II, also known as TERRASTOCK WEST, the Left Coast Ptolemaic Perambulation.

Terrastock II took place the weekend of April 17-19 of 1998, at the Custer Avenue Stages, 1598 Custer Ave., at Rankin. Custer Ave is in India Basin between Army and Evans, two blocks west of Third, in San Francisco USA.

Terrastock II built on the runaway success of the first Ptolemaic Terrascope music festival, which was held in Rhode Island during April 1997, and arranged in conjuction with with Mysterioso Productions and Flydaddy Records. The three-day West Coast event was conceived in a similar spirit of peace, love and co-operation in order to celebrate the music championed by the long-running magazine The Ptolemaic Terrascope. This time we were pleased to be associated with our good friends Danno Booking and Aquarius Records, and the festival proved to be even bigger and better than last time.

Below you'll find the list of performers, including several who travelled not only across America but from overseas as well.
