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
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
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.
