The 6th Annual LA Decompression Music & Arts Festival
A fundraiser for Burners Without Borders www.burnerswithoutborders.org
(from the Home Page of la-burningman.org)
Time is fast approaching for the annual Los Angeles Decompression party!
We have had more submissions for Art, Camps, Installations, stages, and performers than EVER BEFORE!. You guys rock!
Before we get to the list everyone is dying to see, a few things.
First, the event will be held in a BRAND NEW location this year. No more partying on the streets, now we have acres of beautiful lawn all with the amazing view of downtown we have always had.
We are very grateful to the State Park Rangers for allowing us to use their wonderful location. When you see them around, tell them thanks! They have been truly great to work with.
Time: The festivities will start at Noon and end at Midnight.
Cost: Entrance to the event is
$10 in costume or with a Metro Rail pass!
$20 in street clothes.
(Children under 12 are FREE!)
There will be alcohol available on site this year (woo!) as well as food vendors. You are welcome to bring your own food, but we can not allow alcohol in the park outside of the approved areas, so please do not bring it. We are being asked to check for alcohol and weapons as you enter. Please be prepared for this at the gate so we can keep the line moving.
On Site and Secure Parking available at the North end of the park off Baker for $10, so please CARPOOL. Or ride the Metro Rail to the China Town exit and enter at the South end of the park off Spring St.
We are a No Glow Stick event. In keeping with our green initiatives, we ask that you leave the glow sticks at home. They only fill up our landfills with materials that never decompose. Instead, bring reusable lights, like LEDs or EL Wire.
For the first time we will have a chapel. You too can get married at Decompression! Whether for real or just to your playa partner, you can make the moment last a lifetime.
