April 18, 2019
On the 19th April 1943 Dr Albert Hoffman performed a self-experiment that changed the world forever. Having discovered the psychedelic effects of Lysergic Acid Diethylamide in his lab only days earlier, Dr Hoffman decided to take a dose of his newly formed concoction and go for a leisurely ride on his bicycle
Recounting the experience Hoffman remembered, “fantastic images surged in on me, alternating, opening and then closing themselves in circles and spirals, exploding in coloured fountains, rearranging and hybridizing themselves in constant flux.”
To celebrate the anniversary of this momentous bicycle TRIP, and the beginning of what spurred the music, decor and artwork we all love today, on Bicycle Day April 18 2019 Contact High will deliver a full-on psychedelic experience for our special Melbourne psy scene.
