I read the post and had to have a look myself.
The Artists’ Village at Campbell Coast is operated by BJoyful and Doc Rast (rasterscan) and curated by Owl Dragonash. As the name implies it is a village (located on a sky platform) that offers 42 studio spaces in a really nice environment. Inara wrote in her post (January 3rd):
“29 of the 42 studio are already occupied or reserved by the following artists: Dhyezl, Etamae, Jaz, Gidgy Adagio, Shakti Adored, Caly Applewhyte, Whimsical Aristocrat, Ceekay Ballyhoo, Michiel Bechir, Thomaz Blackburn, Giovanna Cerise, Rey Charles, Owl Dragonash, Apple Fall, Johannes Huntsman, Uli Jansma, Suzen Juel, Lena Kiopak, Anouk Lafavre, Dimivan Ludwig, Radagast Malaprop…
Hippiestock began January 15th, 2011. We are going into our 11th Hippiestock January 30th, 2021.
“Hippiestock began as a party for all the people I met in the SL Forums. I was curious as to whom there fantastic people were, and I wanted to meet them in the pixel. At first I called the party “A Forum Dwellers Party”. As the communication over the Forums threads continued, someone dubbed the name “Hippiestock”, and it stuck. The party, after all was meant for good will to everyone. I believe in the hippie and bohemian ways, and want to promote Peace and love to all.”
I want to thank all the performers and people in the background that makes Hippiestock what it is. After all it is the people that make it fantastic!
Jed Luckless is an amazing songwriter and performer in the meta-verse Second Life and RL. His relaxed vibe and jammy style has earned him the nick name “Jammin’ Jed” amongst his fan base. Jed truly grabs the crowd, connecting the live energies and infusing the music with passionate jams, cosmic drum solos and atmospheric spaces. All of his shows are unique and well worth jamming at! I have been enjoying Jed’s shows since 2010 in Second Life. Definatly Owl Approved! 💜
“For all its virtues, one thing the in-world music scene is hard pressed to recreate is the joy of watching a musician’s face and body language while they perform.
Jed Luckless has happened across a way to cater to those who miss this aspect of the experience – and without impacting the pleasure of those who don’t. His performances, as with most other Second Life musicians, take place on the grid, through the medium of his avatar, and his fans chat and dance and enjoy the informal atmosphere and respond to his comments throughout. But for those who need their eyes to enjoy the music as well as their ears, he offers the option of watching his Grateful Dead, Phish and Led Zeppelin-influenced brand of gravel-voiced rock live on a video stream.”
Back in September 2020, I wrote about the Artists’ Village at Campbell Coast, operated by BJoyful and Doc Rast (rasterscan) and curated by Owl Dragonash. Since that time, both Campbell Coast and the Village has relocated, the latter now forming a sky platform over the region.
Work recently completed on the relocation, which sees Campbell Coast offer a similar facility as found at the Phoenix Artists Collaboration – a collection of study-style spaces available to artists (group membership required), with up to 110 LI available per artist.
The studios are presented in town house style units with two floors of exhibition space (artists will need to install their own teleport systems between floors), with the studios laid out in blocks separated by cobbled streets and open spaces, complete with an open-air bar / event space at the southern end of the village.
Sitting on the southern coast of Corsica is small island occupying the south-western corner of Novatron is a small island called Eulennest (“owl nest”).
Held by Kitty (Kitten Mills) the island is home to a range of social venues Kitty has developed for public use. These include music events areas on the beach and up on the table of rock that forms the island, a hidden water cistern, room to dock boats (the island can be reached by sailors) and to re-rez them, as well as numerous places to explore and / or to sit and enjoy the views.
