Bring the spirit and imagination of Black Rock City to the Bay and help create: “Black Top City” — an urban version of Burning Man in the historic Pier 70 buildings and surrounding lots. Our community will create a microcosm of BRC – blocks, camps, inner- and deep-playa filled with art and performance – in a black-top setting at this brand new location. We’ll have extra setup and strike time, so together we are going to be able to 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!!!

CALL FOR PARTICIPATION: Bring us your ideas as early as possible!

Theme camps and sound camps, art, fire art, art cars and mutant vehicles – let us know what you’d like to share:

Performers of all stripes, musicians, bands, dancers, DJs, variety acts, fire performers – please complete this quick submission form:
