Longtime and acclaimed electronic music photojournalist Michael Tullberg announced the launch of a new crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter to fund the printing of his new book DANCEFLOOR THUNDERSTORM: Land Of The Free, Home Of The Rave.  The book is Tullberg’s visual and written account of the glory years of the American underground electronic dance music scene, better known as the rave scene.  During the time period covered in DANCEFLOOR THUNDERSTORM (1996 – 2002), Tullberg extensively covered the rave scene for most of the country’s major dance music magazines, including URB, Mixer, BPM Culture and others, at the time when raves thrust electronic music into the national spotlight and laid the groundwork for today’s wildly successful EDM.

DANCEFLOOR THUNDERSTORM: Land Of The Free, Home Of The Rave is a photography-heavy book that gives the reader unsurpassed access into the American rave nation at its heart—Southern California.  The book contains hundreds of Tullberg’s dazzling photographs from the early days of classic events like Electric Daisy Carnival, Nocturnal Wonderland and Dune.  It features some of the most famous and influential electronic music artists like Paul van Dyk, Paul Oakenfold, Moby, FatBoy Slim, The Crystal Method, Carl Cox and many more.  It also has many of Tullberg’s vintage live reviews, articles and interviews, providing the reader with the ultimate rave insider experience in a 300+ page volume.  When released, the book will be the very first book of its kind in the United States.

DANCEFLOOR THUNDERSTORM will be self-published early next year under Tullberg’s own publishing house, 5150 Publishing. To that end, Tullberg is looking to raise $95,000.00 to cover printing expenses through a Kickstarter campaign that will wrap on December 31. Fans will be able to pre-order the book by donating to the campaign, and there will be other rewards available for additional donations as well, including appearing in the book itself in a special Kickstarter donations chapter.
