Today on the chat, together with some of our friends, we had an idea of something we could call "The International Incubus Fans Meeting".

I can already see those ironic smirks on your faces, but please spend just a few minutes to take a look at our plan ;-)


This is what we wanted it to look like:
We want to divide the globe into a few regional groups. Each group would gather it's members in one place (preferably the center of the region). Then, every group would need to get to the place we want everyone to meet. It all sounds really vague and obscure, but it's not that difficult!


This is the preliminary division I thought of. I would be more than happy to see your suggestions for it :) My first assumption was that the groups shouldn't be too big, about 4-6 countries each.

EUROPE (I omitted smaller countries, such as Canary Islands or Cyprus. Not because I don't want them to come, only because they will know better what works best for them and I wasn't sure how they would like to be divided. Let me know people!)

1st group: Russia, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Ukraine, Belarus and probably Moldova. Moscow seems to be a good meeting point, but you guys can work something out.

2nd group: Poland, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Austria. The meeting point could be somewhere in Poland (though I don't want to push it, I live there :D) or maybe Germany? Any suggestions?

3rd group: France, Luxembourg, Belgium, Netherlands, Denmark and the British Isles. I know the Isles are divided from the rest by the sea, so Brits can meet somewhere in London (for example) and then go to the meeting point in Amsterdam(?). Let me know what you think of it!

4th group: Norway, Sweden, Finland (and probably a part of Russia and Estonia or Latvia, because they're close). Meeting point in Helsinki?

5th group: France, Spain, Portugal, Italy. Meeting point somewhere in France, Paris maybe? Or in Spain, Madrid?

6th group: Slovenia, Croatia, Romania, Yugoslavia, Bulgaria, Bosnia and Hercegovina, Albania and Greece. I gathered them all into one group, as these are smaller countries. Of course, you can change it if you like. Meeting point in Bucharest.

I would really appreciate, if someone did the same division for other continents, as my geographical knowledge is not that good ;) Also, each group and each country will need a coordinator or two to make sure everyone gets in place etc. etc.



Now, the point is to gather people from the given countries in one place, from which we will all travel to our destination (which we still need to acknowledge ;))

The plan assumed that it would be best to hitchhike to the destinaton. If someone has a car, that's great, though we need to make sure, we're not crossing the ocean or something, unless it's ok with you to leave your car somewhere and get it on the way back. 

I don't know what number of people to expect. I suppose there will be more people in a few groups and less people in others. If you want to hitchhike, it will be necessary to divide into smaller groups of 2-3 people. Please, make sure, noone travels alone.


This is just an outline of a plan, I'm sure it needs a lot of polishing, that's why I'm asking for your suggestions. First of all, are you interested in such an event?

I could also use some help, so if you'd like to be a group coordinator or country coordinator, please message me and I will provide more details, there is still a lot of planning to do.

i can help out with asia or something.i don't mind.
And what do you intend to do when you get everyone together Piotrek?

Well, I thought of the concert in Manilla on July, 28th, but it could be difficult because of two things:

1. Philippines are pretty far away + there is the ocean we would need to cross somehow :D

2. July is pretty close and the plan still needs a lot of planning and I don't know if we could make it on time.

 

However,

 

if there was a possibility of some kind of meeting with the band or something like a concert in the last decade of August in a part of the world that doesn't need too much water-travelling (yeah, I know it's subjective :P), I think it would be great ;) Plus, more people would be keen on coming. Of course, the concert would be paid and all ;)

 

In general, what I was trying to accomplish was that the best band's best fans from around the world could actually meet up in one place. That would tighten the bond that we're creating here, on the HQ chatroom, on vokle sessions, on the forums etc. It's not easy, but hey, which relationship is? ;)

 

Besides, if not now, when?

I'm interested in this event, but it's not so simple...
hello, it's a really great project, but difficult to achieve.
but we are a big dreamers and idealists.... so why not? :)
I am the administrator of the Italian group and I'll tell you, from experience, that it was difficult to bring together the fans of our country for a meeting. Many times we have given up. Other times we did, we were about 20 people. The last time we did it at the only concert of Incubus in our country.
Here is not much used to hitchhike, and never get to your destination! but the Italian mentality is different from other European, I think. :)
If you want, I can hosting you all at my house, I have a big garden and cornfields around! let's party! :)
Seriously, you should find a good excuse to move the people!
So, i can help you for the 5th group

A few members of Incubus Germany thought about something like this as well. But we "just" want to meet in Berlin (june 17th) before or after the concert to hang out :) And there are a few people coming from all over the world... join us, if want to :)

Hi Piotr,

 

first of all thank you for being creative. From my own experience here and around the world I second the fact that it will be a hard thing to accomplish, non the less it is possible. So whatever help you could need, count me in.
