Tripping Out

It sounds like the P.R. team behind dance party Kinetic 3 might have done some . . . experimenting . . . on their downtime. “We transcend the world around us, open the porthole through time and space to take you to another place, the deepest part of your soul . . . ,” reads their whimsical press release. The last time I opened the porthole through time and space was my freshman year of college—and while that’s a story for another time, let’s be clear: It didn’t happen after

listening to DJ Tiesto. Yet one doesn’t need access to hallucinogens to feel sublime at Kinetic, when you have access to wholly entrancing terrain like the Pacific Science Center’s planetarium and butterfly room. If you’ve been looking for a loophole, here it is. Get that euphoric effect under the spell of DJs from Israel, live cellists, fire dancers, and more safe stimuli—sans the legal ramifications.
