Thanks from Fantasy Faire Radio

Fantasy Faire Radio will be going off the air for another year, after the end of the Hunt at midnight Pacific Time on May 18/19th.

Before we close down for 2014, the Coordinator of Fantasy Faire Radio, David Abbott, and myself, Technical Director Elrik Merlin, would like to thank everyone who helped to make Fantasy Faire Radio possible this year.

We’d like to thank the roleplay groups who, with the assistance of Saffia Widdershins,  provided us with news stories on how their tales were developing over the course of the Faire; the many live artists, DJs and event commentators who brought the station to life; Samantha Ohrberg for her organisational skills; Gabrielle Riel of Radio Riel for her musical support; our anonymous donor who very kindly donated the server system; and of course the region sponsors, whose messages we have been proud to carry throughout the Faire, thanks to Aisling Sinclair’s inimitable presentation. And thanks to the many others who worked behind the scenes.

But most of all we would like to thank you, the listeners to Fantasy Faire Radio, whether you tuned in from the Fairelands as many of you did, or listened across the internet. This year we were heard by over 9,100 unique listeners in 116 countries, and we hope we enhanced your experience of the Faire and the Fairelands over the past weeks.*

We hope to be back next year at the same time. Meanwhile, if you would like to keep up to date with the latest events surrounding Relay for Life of Second Life as we head towards the big weekend itself, July 19th and 20th, visit the Relay For Life of Second Life web site.

But for now, it just remains for us to say goodbye from Fantasy Faire Radio 2014 – and thank you for listening.

*As a radio enthusiast, it’s quite difficult to write a piece like this without, consciously or otherwise, echoing UK “pirate” station Radio London’s Managing Director Philip Birch on the day the station closed down on August 13, 1967. Hear what I mean, from around 8:36…

Shakin’ it on the Fairechylde

What better way to shake off the fairy-dust and show off your new outfits (and watch other people in amazing avatars!), than dancing on awesome tunes played by one of the Fantasy Faire DJ’s on the Fairychylde, after a day of exploring and shopping?!

Fantasy Faire Party - I

I know I love me some clubbin’ and so I hopped over to the Fairechylde, the giant airship that is carried by a huge dragon and currently stationed above the Palace of Tears and danced the night away. Tonight DJ Victoria Grau entertained the crowds and it was wonderful!

You can hear the DJ’s playing anytime, as they use the stream of Fantasy Faire Radio – which broadcasts news and updates continuously.  There are regular events on the ship, so stay tuned and …enjoy!

Faire Happenings

Palace of Tears_006

The Faire is constantly full of happenings: impromptu or planned. This is where you’ll find out about the planned ones, for the others you simply have to move into the Fairelands for their duration to not miss a moment. That’s what we all do!

This post will be updated to reflect the schedule of the next few days, it’ll stay on top of the site for easy reference.

JAIL AND BAIL

Jail and Bail is a long-standing Faire tradition where the Tiny Sheriffs arrest people for heinous crimes (such as having waffles that should belong to the tinies) and set a bail for the Faire Folk to pay to free them. The bail is always paid into RFL kiosks. These occasions tend to turn into sudden riots of fun and are one of the trademarks of Faire Fun.

DJS AND PARTIES

In addition to Fantasy Faire Radio that delights your ears everywhere in the Fairelands, we also have DJs playing for you several times a day. There’s usually a party going on somewhere in the DJ’s vicinity — the location might change depending on the DJ, best learned by being in time and listening to the stream — but even if you don’t feel like dancing, you can listen in while exploring the Fairelands.
