The intriguing scent of patchouli fills the air, the warmth of bodies dancing in ecstasy creates an endless whirl. Pink Floyd notes awaken the senses during a festival that became a legend.
Like a magic elixir, ‘14 Hour Dream’ is composed of warm oriental notes that lead to a psychedelic dimension, giving life to an endless multi-sensorial journey. Vision and audio experiences melt together, blurred by the intense scent of patchouli– taking the memory back, to journeys to India - and twisted by Pink Floyd's Hypnotic notes. The sensuality of vanilla envelopes everything and everyone, evoking visions of an ecstatic crowd dancing in harmony. An olfactory tribute from master perfumer Antoine Lie to one of the 70’s most legendary music festivals and to those sound virtuosities which paved way to new musical dimensions.

In the Victorian ‘Alexandra Palace’, the 14 Hour Technicolor Dream is taking place: a non-stop music, theatre, dance and poetry fundraising marathon, organized to support the underground magazine “International Times”.
