Burning Man 2011: Decompression Parties LA Oct 1, SF Oct 9 & near you too!

September 16, 2011

Burning Man Decompression Parties help people transition from life on Black Rock City’s playa to life on your city’s blacktop. And they are going on all over the place including one online! So find one or make one near you!

At first, they were just in San Francisco–and it’s still the grand-daddy of all decompression parties since so many Burners are from the Bay Area and they have a great place to hold it! SF Decom is Sunday Oct. 9, 2011.

The 12th Annual SF Decompression

Celebrating 25 years of Burning Man and bringing the playa spirit back to the Bay!
Sunday, October 9, 2011. Noon SHARP till Midnight

Outdoor stages/sound end 10pm, except Mariposa Stage which ends 11pm. Enter at 19th St. & Minnesota St., SF. $10 donation in costumed-finery or with photo of yourself at Burning Man 2011; $20 in street clothes. All ages outdoors; 21+ inside Cocomo

Los Angeles area Burners will hold their 9th Annual Decompression Party Saturday Oct 1. Experience the art, music and culture of Burning Man with a view of the downtown LA skyline. Immerse yourself in twelve hours of art, performance, live music, DJs, dancing­­­, theme camps, art cars, green technology, puppetry, circus, fire, and 2011 imagery.

Presented by the LA League of Arts, the 9th Annual LA Burning Man Decompression Arts and Music Festival Saturday Oct 1 starts at 1pm and continues until 2am at the LA State Historical Park 1245 N. Spring St, Los Angeles, CA 90012.

Eight sound stages are planned and many Burners (including me! it’s called Art Predator’s Play House!) are bringing theme camps. Want to bring a theme camp to a Decompression Party? Check the website now for applications and deadlines–today’s the last day to submit to LA Decom! Register your theme camp for LA Decom. Learn more about LA Decompression.

Tickets for LA Decompression are $20 at the gate. Children 12 and under get in free as do DPW, Rangers, and BM Crew with 2011 laminates. You may come and go until 6pm (State Parks rule). Before you buy your ticket and enter the event, security will search your bags for llegal Drugs, Alcohol, Weapons, Explosives, Markers, Paint, and GLOW STICKS. Avoid items that MOOP like feather boas.  While pets are permitted at the park and the event, they must remain on a leash at all time and you must pick up after your pet poop is the worst MOOP!)  But please don’t bring them–it’s noisy and chaotic and they really don’t belong.

How to get to LA Decom: Take public transit to Union Station on Alameda or park your car there for  $5  (it is the safest place to park in the area). Walk from the train station 5 blocks or ride the Metro Gold Line North from Union Station to the China Town Station one stop up the line. The entrance to the event is approximately 100 yards from the China Town Station.

Burning Man Decompression, like Burning Man itself, is a “Leave No Trace” Event that encourages Radical Self Reliance, Radical Self Expression, and Radical Inclusivity.  Start thinking now about how you will contribute to this community building event!
