Fwd: history of looping question: Live Looping Day

Back then I was living in the bay area and attended a couple years in a row.  Didn't take photos but IIRC, wasn't 2006 the first year that also had a Friday night show at an art gallery in downtown San Jose?  Indeed Rick deserves a ton of credit for bringing loopers from around the world to the festival...in fact I recall one of the performers on Friday night wasn't able to play because he didn't have US power adapters for his gear :-)

I have photographic evidence that International Live Looping Day occurred on Oct 21, 2006. Now, that said, what the day was was basically a recognition of the Santa Cruz looping festival by the mayor of Santa Cruz. So, that's why you don't hear much about it on any sort of regular basis. Rick Walker does deserve credit for the broad international range of performers he attracted and presumably continues to attract to the Santa Cruz festival.

celebrated once; in 2006. What exactly is International Live Looping
Day? Did it only happen once, never to happen again? It seems like it
would have happened again in 2016, if the anniversary of Looper's
Delight is indeed the reason for its existence. But it appeared to
happen in 2006, and then it never happened again. Will you clarify
what Live Looping Day is and why it only happened once in history? I
almost asked this question in 2012 but I decided to wait to see if it
would happen in 2016, and it didn't, but now I'm remembering the
