Burning Man SF Decompression 2018

20/10/2018 @ 2:00 pm - 21/10/2018 @ 2:00 am

US25 – US35

** The Return of Black Top City! **

All Ages welcome!
Kids under 12 free!

Bring the spirit and imagination of Black Rock City to the Bay and help create the 2018 incarnation of “Black Top City” — an urban version of Burning Man along the historic Bayshore waterfront at the historic Potrero Power Station, here! Our community will once again create a wonderful microcosm of BRC, with art, mutant vehicles, theme camps, inner- and deep-playa, performance, and discovery – in a black-top setting at a brand new location! We’ll have even more extra setup and strike time, so together we will take the art and theme camp participation to the next level! We want to hear from participants ASAP to make this the best Decompression ever!

Theme camps and sound camps, art, fire art, art cars and mutant vehicles – let us know what you’d like to share by filling out our Decompression Participation Questionnaire:

Performers of all stripes, musicians, bands, dancers, DJs, variety acts, fire performers – please complete this quick Decompression Performer Submission Form:

Just like creating BRC, Black Top City is built with love by volunteers! Decompression happens through dedicated volunteer efforts, cooperation, gifting, and community in action. Sign up with our Volunteer Participation Form:

Become a part of the Burning Man Community Events team, and help create the wonder of Black Top City!
