San Francisco Decompression 2018
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!
First, a few quick notes and reminders…
- NO outside alcoholic beverages (no exceptions!)
- NO mobile sound systems or any amplified sound
- NO food/beverage service or vending
- NO unscheduled or unapproved fire performance, fire art, BBQs, fire hats, candles, burning clumps of sage, or anything burning whatsoever!
- NO smoking as per Article 19L SF Health Code (smoke-free outdoor events!)
- NO bikes beyond bike parking area before entry
