Hey there Fam ☺️ Bard the Dog here, bringing you the official launch party of Black Dog Entertainment and Taylor Aesthetics. This event is a 1 night campout out event, hosted at the Black Dog Grove just North of where EF is held every year inside the beautiful Manistee National Forest.
We are gathering in a slightly “Pagan-ish” way to celebrate the Ancient Fire Festival known as Beltane. This celebration was to mark the return to of the sun (divine Masculine), towards it’s celestial lover Mama Ghia (divine Feminine), and is a special time to come together and plant the seeds of that which you wish to nurture, fruit, and harvest throughout the year. Join us for a night of camping, music, dancing, art, friends old and brand new, with a splash of pagan ceremony thrown in here and there to align our collective intent upon the next year.
We will have multiple vendors of both, festi crafts, metaphysical and occult, as well as food vendors.
We will be bringing you a fully immersive stage, with projection mapping provided by our peeps from Ft. Wayne IN, NUA Sound. A fully intelligent lighting rig and a 17kw+ sound rig provided by the homies Prysm Bach Lights and Sound. And a line up of local and regional heavy hitters sure to impress and keep you dancing.

Light, Energy and The Universe, Always Changing yet almost constant … A Sir and Scientific
genius first created sub-genres of light from a single white beam into 7 beautiful colors using a glass PRYSM; his name in history was Sir Isaac Newton. Some people have theorized that this multifaceted and colorful device led to the naming of a DJ after the device generations later for representing all the true colors of DNB music in its glory and color, symbolizing the love and
gathering of the community but all its styles of rhythmic sounds in a form of Electronic Music called none other than Drum and Bass.
First finding his music roots at the growing age of 16 figuring out his taste in music just like a
fine lady in life, he first heard progressive house but wasn’t interested in that slow moving
energy. One of his lifelong friends showed him the light while he was fishing in the music sea,
eventually catching his trophy fish. He was introduced by that friend to music called Drum and Bass! Falling in love instantly at the speed of light he purchased his first CD in this spectrum of beats of an artist known none other as.. The legendary, the one and only, (also to this day still
one of his biggest influences) …Aphrodite! Their self titled album and release … Researching the music like science farther such as the legendary scientist Sir Isaac Newton and his formulas, he found love of the different spectrums of the music, he liked the darker colors created by the
PRYSM such as JUNGLE and shying away from Nero-funk. Little did this future DJ know that this music and spectrum of the community with its love, (shown at his first rave around 20 years young) would change his life, (if not saving it) giving him the light, nay the energy to grow and share the love he had found from an art that supporters of the world over craved it as well.
Starting to DJ in the new millennium of known civilization, the peak of the human race’s next
age, he hoped to usher in an era bringing the world with its supporters of his discoveries in
sound frequencies and the addicting energy. Progressing and playing over 100+ shows through his career, in the year of 2018 he began to share the stage and create foundations of stages at many locations he previously DJ’d throughout the midwest and southern United States for
others to perform on. Taking to the information superhighway of the World Wide Web he began to share this footprint all across the world continuing his dream, hoping everyone can always come together as a community, like minded, feeling love, open arms and never being judged or turned away … . That DJ … . will forever be known in history as PRYSM
