On June 14 1964, the infamous bus trip began. With a destination board that said “Furthur”, & a license plate that read “MAZ”, (really!!), and author Ken Kesey, (One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest), navigating, “We hoped we could stop the coming end of the world.” Seeking out ‘the cool place’, their slogan became “You’re Either On Or Off The Bus.” Returning to California, the Merry Pranksters organizied the “Acid Tests”, experimenting with sound, lights, projections, and acid-rock music; as chronicled in “The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test”. In ’96~ (a decade, according to Kesey, that was just the 60’s turned upside-down), ~adopting the theme of the Pranksters’ travels, the plot of their parties, and a little cuckoo’s nest for character,~~The Bus Party Organization was born!
The Bus is supported by ~ DiGiBEATS, AIRPLAIN VISUALS, WijGevenFeestjes, Condo Techno, Ameba Art, Mustard Radio, Ruben Langedijk, Minnie, Roelof, Arwen, Marceline, The Beautiful People, World Peace 2021 ~Performance by Lightgarden

When Ken “Chief Prankster” Kesey passed on, The Bus took a back seat in party world. After an overhaul, The Bus is back.
