SeaCompression 10: Mocktoberfest
WE'RE VERY SORRY, BUT TIER 1 $25 TICKETS HAVE SOLD OUT. YOU MAY PRE-ORDER A $40 TIER 2 TICKET FOR WILL CALL OR PAY $40 CASH AT THE GATE.
SeaCompression is the Seattle area's official Burning Man decompression party. We invite you to come celebrate with TWO ACRES of theme camps, interactive displays, fire spinners, DJs, live music and performers, dance, art cars, grilled cheese, suspension rigs, small blimps, neon rainbows, and any other thing we can pack into an empty city block. Imagine an entire block of Burning Man transported to downtown Burien, and you've got an idea of this year's SeaCompression.
Why outdoors? After last year's blowout attendance of 2,400 people, we simply needed more space, and we've moved to a new, larger venue: a two acre lot formerly known as the Burien Interim Arts Space. We're talkin' 80,000 square feet for art installations, theme camps, and art cars, and our floorplan is already overflowing!
Our live performance stage already has a full lineup featuring Obol, Sporkestra, Billion Jelly Bloom, IGNITION, Pyrosutra, and Violoncello Man, and others. Our covered 3,200 square foot dance hall is slated for a solid lineup of your favorite Seattle DJs (lineup TBA, but it's the same people you voted for in 2009 and 2010, I swear).
Our art installation list reads like a top-hits list from CM and BM: Fusion Fire, the Air Kraken, the DMT Molecule, the Chained Glass Fire Portal, Lake Lahontan Point (er, what's left of it), the giant pool table, and the Wood Zeppelin Makeout Ship, to name a few.
Our list of participating theme camps includes Suspended Animation, Camp Foster, Flight to Mars, Juke Joint, Camp Conception, Wonder Camp, Dead Letter, Arctica, Playa Simulator, the Black Rock Theater, Camp deSade, and more.
As always, SeaCompression is a 21 and over event, with five bars ready to serve you in style. Word has it that our bars have been invaded by some of your favorite theme camps: Zombies and Legos and Juke Joint, oh my!
SeaCompression is sponsored by Ignition Northwest, a non-profit 501c3 community arts board. It is produced by hundreds of volunteers from the Seattle arts community. SeaCompression is Ignition Northwest's chief fundraiser, and the money it raises goes to pay for arts and programs throughout the year.
PLEASE CONSIDER BUYING A TIER 2 GATE TICKET
SeaCompression is a fundraiser for Ignition Northwest's art programs. Though we offer a $25 first tier price, we ask you to please consider paying the $40 second tier. Your extra $15 will help subsidize one of our 270+ artists and volunteers, and save more money for art grants.
BUS TICKETS SALES HAVE CLOSED
