Burning Man San Francisco Decompression 2019: Black Top City!

19/10/2019 @ 2:00 pm - 20/10/2019 @ 2:00 am

US$25 – US$32

Bring the spirit and imagination of Black Rock City to the Bay and help create this year’s inspiring incarnation of “Black Top City” — an urban version of Burning Man along the historic Bayshore waterfront at the historic Potrero Power Station! Last year was a phenomenal experience at this amazing location, and we are thrilled to be able to return in 2019.

Our community will once again create a wonderful microcosm of BRC, with art large and small, mutant vehicles, theme camps, inner- and deep-playa, performance, live music, film, dancing, and discovery!


Just like 2018, we are very fortunate to be able to have a “build week” (well, 3 build days!) before our event, to allow more time for the creation and installation of big art and big ideas! Please apply as early as possible so we can plan to support you with scheduled time, infrastructure (power, equipment) and possibly volunteers to help you take Black Top City to the next level!

Theme Camps, Sound Camps, Art, Fire Art, Mutant Vehicles, and unclassifiable projects – please let us know what you’d like to share here:

Performers, Musicians, Bands, Dancers, DJs, Variety Acts, Fire Performers – please complete this quick submission form:

Volunteer! Burners know the best way to enjoy something is to be a part of creating it! Sign up for a volunteer shift in Black Top City here:
