Here's how you can make this our best Decompression ever
Arrive Early! Come at NOON to enjoy a full day of amazing art, theme camps, people and performances! The lineup is phenomenal.
Respect Our Neighbors. No loud noises, don't block driveways, use OUR toilets and enter and leave the area VERY quietly. Don't drive on Minnesota St at all. Do not camp overnight.
Green Your Commute! Take mass transit or bike! There will be bike racks at 19th & Minnesota. Or carpool and park at the UCSF lot at 16th St. & 3rd St. (3 blocks away with special discounted rate), at the ballpark, or on Terry Francois Blvd. Please do NOT drive or park at all on Minnesota Street, Indiana Street, or 19th/20th between Indiana and Tennessee. There will be a taxi stand at 18th and Minnesota for your convenience. And mass transit is VERY convenient.
Express Yourself and pARTicipate! Wear your finest playa pageantry and costumery. Bring warm layers for evening. To register art/performance/theme camp, email flambelounge(at)burningman(dot)com so we can accommodate and celebrate YOUR special contribution to this amazing community. ALL sound systems, fire art, theme camps, vehicles and stage acts MUST be registered and confirmed in advance.
Perform Random Acts of Art, Kindness and Gifting.
NO Boom Boxes, Renegade Sound, Unapproved Food/Beverage Service, Fire Performance, Fire Art, Fire Hats, Candles or Burning Clumps of Sage: These will jeopardize the event. Leave unregistered sound and fire art home. And if you see anyone with fire outside the fire art barricades or the fire stage, ask them to PUT IT OUT and PUT IT AWAY!
Pack out all trash you bring and LEAVE NO TRACE! Please help us pick up trash and deposit it in appropriate sorting pails. Breakdown is 10-11PM for the park and 12-2AM on the street. By 2AM, EVERYTHING MUST BE GONE and small debris must be swept into the street for the street sweeper to work its magic. If you are exhibiting at Decom, bring a broom to sweep the sidewalks clean, pack out what you brought, and pick up large debris in the street. Also, please remove unwanted fliers from cars.
Volunteer! This is a volunteer-driven event. To be part of the team that makes Decompression so special, email SEvolunteers(at)burningman(dot)com . Or stop in at Volunteer Sign-Up at Playa Info or Volunteer Check-In on 20th St. At a minimum, EVERYONE is part of our Leave No Trace team, so please pick up any trash, club fliers and feathery bits as you go.
Share Your Favorite Playa Photos/Videos! We need the content at least two weeks ahead of time, so email flambelounge(at)burningman(dot)com and we'll do our best to get them up on the Decom stage screens!
Express Responsibly! Protect the event and our beautiful park: No stakes, fire of any kind, BBQs, unleashed dogs, amplified sound, vehicles & bikes in the park.
Do not cut through bushes, where you could damage sprinklers.
No drumming, live instruments, loud sound, megaphones or amplified sound after 10PM ANYWHERE. The only exception will be the Mariposa dance area, which goes til 11PM with a chill set. If anyone is drumming or making amplified noise after 10pm, shoot first and ask questions later. (um don't actually shoot 'em. Just get them to stop.)
After sound ends, talk quietly and enjoy the art and community.
If you are a registered art car or theme camp, please take extra care to not drive over electric cables or distro boxes during setup/breakdown. Take special care during exodus. Have someone safely guide you out of your spot and get home safe.
Leave Quietly and Travel in Groups to help one another to your cars and next destinations. If you are alone, ask a Ranger for help. Remember this is an urban environment and there is safety in numbers. PLEASE do not drive if you have had anything to drink. Have a designated driver or catch a taxi at 18th & Minnesota.
Come Back 11am Monday Morning!: Leaving the neighborhood cleaner than we found it is a gift we are serious about giving. If you're up early, get a head start and pick up any trash, feathers, cigarette butts and leftovers you see. Or come from 11am-4pm for our main annual neighborhood clean-up! A group of us will meet at 19th and Indiana and start our clean-up on Minnesota St., move to the park, Indiana, then surrounding streets. Many hands make light work and every year we leave the neighborhood CLEANER than it was. Bring gloves and brooms if you got 'em. We'll bring supplies, free donuts, coffee and thank you gifts! Thanks! This really means a lot to those of us that have to stay up all night and need your support to make it fun and fast.
If you can help with a park planting in January, e-mail flambelounge(at)burningman(dot)com and we'll send you a secret garden party announcement!
