The Call – Yoohoo!

Dear Fairy friend I call to thee take my hand and walk with me, up the mountain royally.

We call  for the intergalactical 4th “Sound Of Faeries” Gathering 14 – 24th August 2021 in the Austrian Alps, at Hochkönig, near Salzburg, on Planet Earth. So once more we welcome you for a summer of love, light and laughter that will change your life.

Even in times of physical dis-dancing, this summer we want to come and move together again, to (or off) the Sound Of Faeries, forget our everyday worries, embrace each other, blow off steam or simply let go. In all this, the health of our participating Faeries always comes first. Therefore, we are constantly developing our COVID concept, based on the latest official guidelines of the Austrian authorities. Please keep yourself informed by our constantly developed prevention concepts on our website (click COVID Concept (English) – Radical Faeries Vienna ) – thank you very much! With your registration you accept our COVID concept, which is obligatory for all attendees.

Our Themes this year will include:
Meeting each other in times of pandemic and feeling the proximity of our souls and bodies, Community, Inclusion, Set our Roots in Radical Faerie History and grow into the Radical Future Faeries.

As we have done in the years past, we will gather at the glen of the Hochkönig mountain massif with an enchanted forest, in Salzburg. This time around, we are exploring an entirely charming new Venue at 1420 meters high!

This place is home to breathtaking vistas, crystal clear drinking water coming directly from the mountains glacier and the sound of distant cowbells, grassing on the meadows nearby.

So we invite all Radical Faeries, with one or multiple genders and with, or none sexual craving (Queers, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Dragons, Pixis, Rocks, Shruberrys, Bosnickel, Muggles and many more), from everywhere to join us for our intergalactic gathering! Enjoy the alpine mountains, filled with creativity, healing, faerie magic, rocks, alpine glow, community, Trees, hugs, Giants, kisses and whatever else you decide to make it to be!

  • If you like to camp, the nights are chilly (15 to 25 degrees) but there is enough space to pitch a few tents.
  • Unfortunately, no pets are allowed at the gathering. Only cows allowed!

Creating Faerie Space

As we gather, we build, find or create community. We aim to connect to each other via our hearts. We may form bonds that are lasting and that reach all over the planet with individuals who we would not have met otherwise. It is  a sacred place beyond the physical plane in a space you can not touch. 

Consent

So let’s strive to become aware of each others boundaries, to not just respect them but to meet them with gratitude. This also includes our Photo- and video-policy

Radical Inclusion

This Faerie space is a queer space. As our understanding of faerie space has evolved, so have the people who shaped it. We are creating a  space that is radically inclusive. Our space is open to all living Beings, but remember my freedom ends where another one ́s beginning. 

We are making an effort in being conscious about the diversity of expression and identity within faerie space, so we try not to make assumptions about each other. Instead we open up our hearts and we listen and grow in a way that allows everyone who hears the call faerie magic to also take ownership of this faerie space.

Co-Creation

Faerie space is first and foremost collaboratively created, co-created. This means that everyone needs to put an effort into contributing to keeping it functional. Food needs to be prepared and served, dishes need to be washed, people need to be hugged, nails need to be painted, rocks need to be arranged artistically and toilets need to stay clean. 

This is just as much a contribution as facilitating heart circles, managing the auction, mowing the lawn and offering workshops. These responsibilities are distributed amongst everyone.

Make Magic Happen

Do you want to organise a ritual, or an event at the gathering? Would you like to help us organise this gathering? Would you  like to prune the Shrubbery ? What about helping in the kitchen or even act once as the Kitchen Queen? Maybe you would like to throw a ball? We are grateful for all the help we can get!

Covid Concept

We really try to make it happen as safe as we can and as faerie as we can. Therefore, we ask you to participate only if you are either vaccinated, fully recovered or willing to be clear tested and to indicate this at registration. Single rooms are available on a limited basis. If you are not vaccinated, a doctor will do a test at least after the 5th day and optional at the end of the gathering (total €50 per person. Refund possible for NOTAFLOF). If all are tested negative on the 5th day, there will be no restrictions from the 6th day on. Therefore those not vaccinated should not arrive later than the first day of the Gathering (14th). With your registration you accept the permanently developing Covid concept, which is obligatory for all attendees.

Privacy & Nudity

The venue’s capacity is distributed amongst three buildings. We were able to rent the two main buildings. There is also a hiking trail that starts from our main Building. So privacy is limited, but available. For this same reason, we ask faeries to limit nudity to the insides, balconies and our protected “faerie meadow” for circles, workshops and relaxation.
