A long time bohemian and count er culture destination, Goa, India’s place within the electronic dance scene is one not to be taken lightly.

Very much birthed from hippie aesthetics, Goa, and it’s endless beaches, were the site of a particular kind of party, ultimately birthing the PsyTrance (aka Goa Trance) parties of the 1990s-2000s. Before Ibiza and Burning Man, from the 1970s until now (kind of), Goa’s decades of influence are now captured in a new Facebook Gallery from IsraTrance.

See some of the images below and reminisce of the days Goa was not beholden to local government authorities.
