On behalf of the organizing committee, I'm very sorry to report the cancellation of this event. We explored several options, but between a combination of low participation, low ticket sales, and limited budget, it was decided that the event would not be viable.
There are several alternative events during the proposed weekend, and we hope everyone will find something that fills them with the playa joy we had hoped to share! We are tightening up our team, learning from our mistakes, and hope to bring the Las Vegas Burner community a very special event in the first quarter of next year.
Thank you for your interest and involvement. Ticket holders can expect refund communications this week
What is decompression?
A decompression party, decom or decomp is a local reunion for Burning Man participants to help ease themselves back into everyday society after the "big event." It is not uncommon for Burning Man participants to experience "post-burn blues," and decompression events can help alleviate the feelings of loneliness and separation that can occur. The events provide an opportunity to participants to share feelings, art, performances, and memories. As awareness of Burning Man has spread around the world, Decompression events have evolved to welcome newcomers to Burner culture.
Las Vegas Decompression is a radically inclusive and expressive outdoor street faire in the heart of the Vegas Arts District. This event is produced 100% by your local Burning Man community and features 12 hours of music, performers, artists, art cars, food, drinks, costumes, participation and oodles of delicious playa love. Reconnect and share stories from this year’s burn or make new friends and start getting pumped for next year. If you’ve never been to Burning Man, this is a great way to learn more about our community!> Click here to RSVP on Facebook
