The Snowboard Szine Vol. 1, Issue 12



This Issue is a Special Bulletin


Woodstock Tattoo & Body Arts Festival


September 17 - 19, 2004

Woodstock, NY (approx. 100 miles north of NY City) ====================================

See 125 Burton Snowboards that have been turned into collectible art by some of the world's top tattoo artists. And LOTS more unbelievable things!

I'm sending out this special issue of the Snowboard Szine so my East Coast. USA readers can save the 3rd weekend in September for this outstanding and outlandish event.

The town of Woodstock, in case you weren't born then, is where the original Woodstock Festival was to occur. Outcry and politics sent that music fest over to Bethel, NY. But Woodstock is a darling funky pretty, counter-culture-ish art town near the Catskill Mountains, well worth visiting. And this festival gives you more of a reason.

The second Woodstock Tattoo & Body Arts Festival has an entertainment line-up that makes it sound like this will be the East Coast's answer to Burning Man, but without those blasted duststorms.

Promoter Curse Mackey says that this will be the "first time that the snowboard and art worlds have collided on this level. And if you miss this, you made a BIG mistake!"

125 Burton snowboards have been turned into art, for sale at between $400 and $7000. Go to the colorful and well-designed to get the goods.

Or bunny hop right over to the schedule of events at

A rail jam by some of the Burton team, on snow that the local Zamboni picks up is also in the works. ====================================

Here's more on the Woodstock Tattoo & Body Arts Festival

in the words of the promoters:

A groundbreaking event this year is a project called RIDES OF PASSAGE, co-sponsored by Burton Snowboards, 125 snowboards will be on display in one of the sickest art exhibits ever. These boards –have been painted, carved, sculpted, made pretty or pretty dangerous by some of the top tattoo, graffiti and visionary artists in the world. This is the first time that Snowboarding, art and tattooing of collided and it is a DO NOT MISS exhibit. Participating artists include Filip Leu, Don Ed Hardy, Aaron Cain, Sean Crofoot, Adrian Lee, Joe Capobianco, Jime Litwalk, Jason D’ Aquino, Mario Desa, Gunnar, Jeff Proctor, Paco Excel, Ron Earhart, Tristan Eaton, and a 111 other twisted minds. The exhibit will debut in Woodstock and then travel on the Burton World Tour to Tokyo, LA, NYC, Innsbruck, Zurich, and wrap up in Burlington,VT. where the exhibit will be documented and find a final resting place in a beautiful book that is underway as we speak. Oh…Pro Riders from Burton will participate in a RAIL DEMONSTRATION, with snow being trucked in from an area hockey rink.

(We're waiting for final confirm on the rail jam. I'll send out info to the Szine readers when I get it. lauren)

The music is everything it should be in Woodstock. Loud, sexy, sweaty, groovin’ and fresh. The 2004 version will feature another amazing lineup of local, regional and national artists including hardcore legends Murphy’s Law. A rockabilly-psychobilly party on opening night with the Kings of Nuthin’, Speed Crazy, Psychocharger form NYC, Canada’s Gutter Demons and more.

The New York City Rock-n’Roll Show will feature six of NYC’s hottest female fronted punk/hard rock bands. Imagine CBGB’s moves to the mountains for a night to blew the roof off of The Colony (one of the hosting venues.). A total of 36 bands will perform Reggae, Rock, Blues, Dub, Metal, and let’s not forge the always captivating Human Marvels, ThEnigma and Katzen with their rock n’ roll sideshow act….belly dancers, firebreathers and DJ’s round it out.


Hey, drop us a line if you're going to the Woodstock Tattoo & Body Arts Festival.

Maybe we'll see you there!
