Mother Earth Sound System is an electronic music event collective, formed of people who love all forms of dance music and the community around sharing the music. Founded in 1993 from the San Francisco bay area rave scene, we have since spread to Oregon, Los Angeles, and are now primarily based in Denver, Colorado. Since 1997, we have been doing free outdoor Full Moon Gatherings throughout the Rocky Mountains, as well as intimate indoor events that focus on eclectic, deep, quality dance music.
Our musical guests have included Robag Wruhme, Donato Dozzy, Surgeon, Joel Mull, Dan Bell, John Tejada, Alexi Delano, Derek Plaslaiko, Matthew Dear, Ryan Elliott, the Kooky Scientist, Greg Schiff, Stewart Walker, Maetrik, Jeff Milligan, Sutekh, Someone Else, Habersham, Jay Haze, Kit Clayton, Richard Devine, Dj Spooky, James T. Cotton, Eric Cloutier, Titonton Duvante, Dustin Zahn and many others.

Save the date for the first Full Moon Gathering of the season: Saturday June 22nd!
We are even more excited than usual to start this season, as it marks a major milestone for Mother Earth Sound System. MESS began in San Francisco in 1993, so this year we celebrate 20 years of playing techno in the wilderness!
We have a special 2-night Full Moon in the works for July, stay tuned....

This summer we are partnering with Hedd Sound to provide sound for all the Full Moons: 18000 watts through 4x Turbosound Floodlight tops + 6x Basscouch custom subs. Bass for your face!
TBA, but within about 2 hours of Denver, and no 4x4 required.
$15-20 PER PERSON to help us cover costs. Our requested donation has gone up this year, due to the growth of these events, our partnership with Hedd Sound, and our special plans for the July Full Moon, which will be a 2-night 20-year MESS Reunion Full Moon! Thanks for your understanding and support.
